I suspect Mojo Nixon came out with this long after my pirate radio station was dead and gone, none the less it expresses my sentiments about commercial radio and the F.C.C. rather well.
I’ve always been opposed to censorship, even when I find the ideas being censored unappealing. I think it’s a slippery slope that leads to a complete lack of novel ideas needed to move society forward.
I also think a lot of otherwise good music is ruined because lyrics contained a word or idea someone didn’t like.
One thing I liked about KISW before Iheart Radio ruined them is that they used to not censor. They’d play a song as it was written, damn the FCC fines, but no more.
On that note; here is a nice extrapolation of censorship taken to the logical end.
