Prelate urges action against profanity on FM radio

Bastes said there is a necessity to curb the use of obscene languages, which according to him, can be heard over some FM radio stations.
“Dapat talagang i-monitor at parusahan ng KBP (Kapisanan ng mga Brodkaster ng Pilipinas) ang mga anchor-DJ’s (disc jockeys) sa radyo na malaswa magsalita,” said Bastes.
“Nakakahiya yan. We should use good words on air na makakatulong upang maiangat ang pagkatao at moralidad ng mga Filipino,” he said.
The bishop specifically noted that profanity is common among some late night FM radio programs.
He was referring to some radio programs that accept calls from the public, wherein they give them relationship, personal and even sexual advices.
“Some of the DJ’s, especially in midnight programs, are using indecent language and vulgar language, which is not good,” said Bastes.
Other programs discuss sexually-oriented topics with some DJs using “double-meaning” words. [CBCPNews]
