Janet Jackson gets in trouble for flashing a boob, Howard Stern gets his teeth kicked by the FCC every week, but:

I just heard a commercial for an escort service on 106.9 - how the he...ck can that happen?

Really.
It seems if you are a paid advertiser there is a different standard with the FCC.
Stern is more colorful in his discriptions but the commercial of throwing a football through a tire???. Same meaning, same intent. And so and so on with adverts. And I have heard the escort service commercials. Jessh!.
How about this for chuckles. Janet says that Pres. Bush is only using her boob "accident" to divert attention away from his problems. Let me see... not Janet's fault. It was Pres Bush's fault. Hmmmm...

Change Your station "For God's sake"

I got a remedy for you. Hit AM on the selector and 1070.
That will solve your prob. Now, it will not fix Janet's shirt, or her chest(which prlly has more silicon than a case of snapperslappers) now that I think about it silicon is pretty much a bait. D'pending on the presentation.
But you can bet you will hear something worth while.
Let him who has ears to hear. ...(if you realllly want to listen to something worth your time) If not then it is the same thing as fishin in the sewer and complaining about the smell.duh

That would take the station off the air, permanently....

When I worked in radio!
Briefly, I wrote commercials and did live mike at WINR-AM, Binghamton, NY in 1945. I was Copy Chief at WHCU-AM in Ithaca, NY in 1947. I was Copy Chief at WENE-AM in Endicott, NY in 1948.
Back then the FCC REQUIRED that every single word that was said over a live mike must be scripted. There was no such thing as "taping" in those days. Everything was live.
Every 6 months inspectors came to the station, pulled out every script and examined it. If the scripts passed their inspection, the station was good for another 6 months at which time the station's license came up for renewal. FCC could yank the plug on a station at the drop of the hat.
Words like "da*n" or "h*ll and especially the word "sex", if spotted by an FCC eavesdropper, the plug would be pulled and the station on suspension plus a heavy fine.
Yes, friends. Things have changed. And, frankly, I don't think for the better. (of course that's just my opinion)
But you can be sure that in those days parents didn't have to worry about puttings "locks" on programs they shouldn't see. Everything was G-rated.
Hear some of the GREATS from my radio days. You'll hear clips of old radio shows. See photos of radio personalities that you've heard about from the older generation. And check to see how some of them kept getting themselves in trouble with the FCC.
See the photos and read how the FCC responded to some of the "stars" and their shows:

Fred Allen series

Jack Benny show

Burns and Allen

Fibber McGee and Molly

Throckmorton P. Gildersleeve clip
Charlie McCarthy-Edgar Bergen The Chase and Sanborn Hour

Mae West controversial
Vic and Sade

Jimmy Durante-Garry Moore The Camel Comedy Caravan


And so, in the famous words of Forrest Gump...
"AND THAT'S ALL I HAVE TO SAY ABOUT THAT!"

If they can adverise things to make me stand at attention and be fully erect, I see no reason to complain about any commercial. NASCAR even has a Viagara car, explain that to a first grader.

The Life of Riley is still my favorite. Burns and Allen a close second....

As for the Viagra, it'll go right over there heads. If my kids asked me what it is, I'd tell them its a pill that makes old men feel younger again for a little while. I doubt a 10 year old would inquire more than that...
