Bishop Bastes Vs Bastos Broadcasters (BB vs BB)
Sorsogon Bishop Arturo M. Bastes said the Kapisanan ng mga Broadcasters ng Pilipinas (KBP) should regulate programs being aired on FM stations at midnight.
The prelate alleged that some midnight disc jockeys (DJs) are using sexual innuendos when they give advice to callers who have relationship problems.
The bishop claimed that he received reports that midnight DJs are “using foul language” on-air from “a couple, teachers and even drivers,” but he has not personally listened to these radio stations yet.
Bishop Bastes encouraged FM radio jocks to play religious songs instead.
I have two words to say to the Bishop.
For the FM radio stations, they could only resort to sexual innuendos to make their shows a little bit more interesting while being discrete at the same time, specifically to target their “horny” or “sexually-active” listeners.
This is obviously done to spice up the usual dead or sleepy hours of the night where listeners need more than just coffee to keep awake.
Insomniacs or sleep-deprived individuals are given a “tasty treat” when served some “mouthwatering” and “tounge-tingling” side dishes along with the main course of discussion.
