CTS Extra 47: Obscenity and Broadcast Stations

This CTS Extra contains strong language. We advise that our terrestrial radio outlets NOT broadcast this extra. Instead, please be sure to air program 1803, which was the inspiration for this extra. If you do air the extra, you do so at your own risk!

In this extra, The Radio Kid and Jake Longwell discuss and debate the rules concerning "obscene" language and broadcast radio and television. This debate is inspired by the recent "shithole" controversy which has caused much debate, and which may get NBC and its affiliate stations in trouble with the FCC. Should we loosen the regulations concerning obscene language? Should the rules remain the same? Or should they be tightened even further? Should certain words be added or dropped from the list of those unacceptable according to the FCC? Listen to our interesting discussion and debate.
