It’s lunch hour and you’re trying to enjoy the only refuge you have from the ravages of work for the next five hours. But the radio at the fastfood joint is blaring, at full volume, audio from FM station 101.1 Yes FM. And the silly, helium-voiced DJ keeps on blabbering those green jokes and you think, WTF, there are kids here! Those jokes don’t seem to appropriate for the general audience!
Update: I stand corrected. The radio station is actually Love Radio, and not Yes FM. But still, it can’t be denied that there are also other erring stations. Check out the comment thread below.
Or perhaps you’re in a cab with your grade-school aged daughter. Or perhaps you’re in your car and a jeepney passes you, ‘woofers at full throttle. Or perhaps you’re at home, station-surfing for that new, popular song you just love (and maybe LSSing on).
One time or another, we Metro Manilans are bound to have our ears pestered by this radio characted called “kukurukuku.” Not only are the jokes super corny, they’re not even fit for general patronage. And what’s ironic is, the station is being marketed for a mass audience (read: masa), but the content doesn’t seem fit for the airwaves.
And it gets really bad especially since this is the radio station of choice of about 99.9% of public-utility-vehicle drivers.
I think the regulatory bodies should have a word with the station’s producers.
And the playlist–well, that’s worthy of yet another lengthy blog post.
