F-Worded on the Radio

Screw Howard Stern. But Save Sandra Tsing Loh!
The radio culture wars have claimed an unlikely victim, and an unlikely victimizer (America's favorite NPR station, KCRW).

Hello Castro? Do You Have Political Prisoners in a Can?

Media Hybrid: Prank Phone Calls meet Right-Wing Talk Radio as Miami Spanish-language DJ's Enrique Santos and Joe Ferrero make an on-air call to their least favorite world leader and (allegedly) get through to him. Hilarity and Profanity Ensue. Prank or hoax? Political statement or political vandalism? Get me Bush on the phone!
Also: Overview of radio paranking including statement of disapproval from veteran radio hoaxter Phil Hendrie.

Politician vs. DJ: Hilarity Ensues

"Yes, I am looking for the Farm Bureau but I am not able to find it."
A disc jockey in Fresno, CA (where my own radio career ended 25 years ago: self-interest disclosure) who says "I don't vote. I don't care", pulls a stunt on an embattled state legislator with a Hustler sex doll (NSFW unless you work for Hustler) and it becomes a First Amendment Issue TM when officers of the California Highway Patrol order pictures of the stunt deleted from a digital camera.

Here's the radio station's spin on the story, complete with a glowing endorsement (but no direct link) for their photo recovery software.

The Legislator in question has not mentioned any of this on HIS website, but he is sponsoring an essay contest for 9th-12th-graders on the subject: "There Ought to Be a Law". (scroll down)

Blame Obscure Store for getting me started.
