More Nudity, This Time On The Radio

Nudity on the radio, that's right, the FCC has proposed a fine of $220,000 for Pennsylvania-based Entercom Communications.

Radio Stations Face Fine For 'Naked Twister' Game

Popular Kansas City rock jock Johnny Dare has something in common with Howard Stern and Janet Jackson -- all three have been accused of indecency by the Federal Communications Commission.

The FCC proposed a $220,000 fine Wednesday for Pennsylvania-based Entercom Communications.

The proposed fine comes in response to four 2002 broadcasts on two Kansas radio stations: KQRC in Westwood and KFH in Wichita.They broadcast installments of the "Dare and Murphy Show" featuring "Naked Twister" with local strippers and graphic interviews with porn stars.

The FCC said the material was indecent and clearly intended to "pander to and titillate the audience."

Read the article at The Kansas City Channel website.

I have a novel idea for those who don't want to listen to this or any other material they may find objectionable: turn the dial. At least this will save taxpayer money and our virginal ears. But, until further notice, yes, it is a crime to simply sound naked.

I sure hope no other business is "pandering" to their consumers!
