Porn Radio Replaces Christian Radio
Status: Publicity stunt
When I first read this article I thought it was an example of satire masquerading as news. Now, however, I think it's just a publicity stunt:
Kingsburg-based KFYE, FM 106.3, offered Christian programming until a week ago. In a neck-snapping, did-I-really-hear-that? turn of events, it now provocatively calls itself "Porn Radio" — presenting a mix of music, moans and suggestive announcements... The station's titillating playlist runs from "Why Don't We Do It in the Road" by The Beatles, to "Sexual Healing" by Marvin Gaye, to "Strokin'" by Clarence Carter, to "I'm Too Sexy" by Right Said Fred and "Nasty" by Janet Jackson — a bewildering, genre-bending array of tunes sewn together by one bare thread: sex. Even when the sexual suggestions in a tune may be a little vague, such as in Phil Collins' "In the Air Tonight," the songs are often accented with recorded moans and groans of a woman who appears to be in throes of ecstasy.

I really don't see what the big deal is with this station. We listened for a few hours the other day while heading back from a road trip, an I honestly didn't hear anything even remotely offensive. They played great music. Yes, the music had sexual references, but they didn't play anything that isn't played on other stations. Also, I didn't hear any of the moaning or anything. They must not do that to often.

I just find it strange that it's causing such a big deal on all the news stations here and that people are protesting it. I thought it was a great mix of music and not the least bit offensive.

There was a woman on the news last night saying she was protesting because there's no way to block our children from listening to the station. Honestly, there's nothing bad on it. I mean, can she honestly be protesting that they are playing Beatles and Marvin Gaye? She probably hasn't even listened to the station. She just heard the word "porn" and picked up her protest sign.

The term in the radio industry for putting on a sham format until you get your REAL new format ready is "stunting." It's pretty common, although the "porn radio" concept is a new wrinkle.

Trust me, as a radio veteran I can tell you that it was deliberately designed to stir people up and get them to notice a station that, with its religious format, wasn't attracting much of an audience. As soon as I read about this, I knew that they wouldn't stay with "porn radio." It was just a decoy.

"I'm too sexy for my cat,
Too sexy for my cat"

That part cracks me up to the point of ROTFL
