Carleton “King” Coleman, former disc jockey and now head of Platinum Records, shouted, “I detest this whole program,” and told the FCC official he had no business making such a speech to NATRA.
“He should have made this talk to the station owners,” Mr. Coleman said. “We are announcers and we have no control over programming.” Launching into criticism of “$200,000 dollar a year” black personalities on top New York stations who submit to white control (exception: “William B. Williams on WNEW in New York is the only man in radio who can say his own views.”)
Mr. Coleman concluded: “We just want to do what white people can do.”
