NEW PROGRAMS CURSE AND 'FOUL' LANGUAGE USED
So many [prior loyal] donors, volunteers, & sponsors have veered away from such sudden loud and unexpected angry expressions - and so turned away completely now from KPFK.
This unusual new 'rule' proclaimed at KPFK on air - and the previously
And since that type of slang and cursing version of the American-English language is mostly less-preferred or heard by those who want - and have worked, to obtain a better education and social status, and earned better. So many stakeholders of long-standing have complained and left the station, taking their $$$ and loyalties elsewhere in radio land.
This new emphasis of emerging 'rebellious' cultures, and maybe of minority groups, are now insisting and inflicting their cultural norms and versions onto the many others - who in majorities may turn their majority voices and funds away from funding KPFK, thus taking their donation sources elsewhere instead.
Even as the radio station repeatedly stresses it's need for more listeners, for desperately needed money, for dedicated funders and sustained givers, and for more... and more... more.. even while these unexpected shifts and drifts in programming instead reduces what KPFK needs.
The hope must be that the younger-demographic and looser-style listeners will also pay up too. So that these recently arrived late night programers can then also claim viability - for their paid-up-donors to then also make up for those other prior sponsors being dismissed now = the polite, considerate of KPFK paid-up-for-years-subscribers - but then that result is dubious and it may just be a failing experiment.
Pandering to the poorest, or lowest of any-cultural norms, and using the language mostly used in prisons, in slums and dangerous places, in anger and used with violence - these may be a poor choice of presentations made by management.
Anyone who wants to hear the programs referred to above can listen to KPFK 90.7 FM at midnight - 3 am hours Mon-Thurs - which is to those who claim they are or have "awesomeness". Then with that disclaimer, they claim immunity from federal communication norms.
The FCC is not deaf, and it can also be contacted and questions asked of the US federal government directly - on line or by telephone. [ The Federal Communications Commission is the one that regulates TV, radio, broadcasts and more, not just for 'decency' and upholding USA norms, but that too.]
