Rotten Beef….What's Eating You?

    The category for this could also be considered ART as music is considered an art form by some people.

    So my bitch this week would be the fact that FCC censorship on music radio is so lame. As many of you may know, during a Super Bowl halftime show Janet Jackson “supposedly” had a wardrobe malfunction. Ever since then the FCC has been concerned with protecting out children from disgusting and pornographic material reaching the airwaves. Songs such as the Who classic “Who Are You”. That song has been on the radio for almost 30 years. Now all of a sudden that “classic” song is bad for young ears. Come on adults out there, YOU listened to it. Did it affect you? If you don’t want “your children” listening police them yourselves!

    I was out of town last week and heard something on the radio that shouldn’t have surprised me but completely did! It was the Pink Floyd classic song “Money”.  Now, I had heard the censored version of “Who Are You” before, but this one took me completely by surprise. A sample of the lyrics in the song went like this:

    Money, its a hit.
    Dont give me that do goody good {nothing but silence was here}.
    Im in the high-fidelity first class traveling set
    And I think I need a lear jet.

    Then after the song was over I heard a sweeper (station identifiying element) saying something like “we have so much music we don’t know where to put it all” and a YOUNG BOY’S voice comes in after and says “bend over, here it comes!” Humorous yes. Contradictory, I would say so! I would have rather not even heard the song if they were going to hack that classic the way they did!

    So where does the black end and white begin? Do people, as in parents, need to be more responsible and stop relying on others to police thier children? Should artistic freedom be restored (within reason)? You decide, you are the ones making these choices too.

    For years Tampa Bay had wanted a Major League Baseball team. In 1998 they finally got one. But guess what? No one goes to the games. Why? Because everyone promotes the team from the Bronx. Why go to see the Devil rays play unless the Yankees are in town?

     WTF is wrong with the media in Tampa Bay?? This is TAMPA BAY. NOT the Fucking South side of the Bronx! Why do these people continously put the Fucking Yankees as the top sports scores and news stories? Pull your heads out of Steinbrenners ass and serve YOUR COMMUNITY, not some one who buys you! Oh, I know all about how much Georgie does for Tampa Bay. But still, this is TAMPA BAY.

     There’s a new owner in town, the last one didn’t seem to do much for us except bring the team here. Support the new guy, Stuart Sternberg, he is trying to do for us!

     Those that know me, know I am a true Red Sox fan. But, I also work in the media and serve MY COMMUNITY! I will continue to promote the D-Rays (pronounced HOME TOWN TEAM)  until they decide to leave this town (which I wouldn’t be surprised because of all Steinbrenners drone-like followers)
