Quick Rant

I'm so sick and fucking tired of rock radio stations in my town alienating their female listeners by objectifying women in their advertising and pulling other sexist bullshit.

That is all.

If it makes you feel any more comfort, that's the same bullshit that appears at every rock station. You're not alone.

I'd write to them and say, "so, when should I be expecting the best-looking package contest? Not having one? didn't think so"

Exactly! I would LOVE to for the sexist and homophobic DJs to be required to advertise and recruit for the "best-looking package contest", too.

sadly, the blitz (and their "hummer girls") no longer exist.

Neil: I'm aware of this, but I don't consider it "sad". Weird for the Blitz to be gone after so many years, but I like the new format better than what 99.7 had become before it switched.

As far as I know, Qfm still has its "Toys for TaTas" campaign at Christmastime. Ugh.
