I went to Clear Channel's website, found out which radio stations in my area it owns that I listen to, then I emailed Clear Channel to let it know that I would no longer listen to those stations as long as Limbaugh was still on the air. I hope others do the same; ratings equal $$, and that is the one language Clear Channel understands.

re: #1 Weareallslutsnow

It's really good to see people taking a stand against this ugliness. I don't listen to the radio, but if I did I'd be emailing them too.

I urge every American who truly loves this beautiful country of ours to pause for just a minute, take a deep breath, and realize that we’re all in this together. Regardless of whether or not you liked President G.W. Bush’s past policies or President Obama’s current ones, if our country implodes into a shambles we ALL still have to live in it.

Word! Well said.

I'd boycott them too except coming from me it would be an empty threat since I can't remember what year it was the last time I listened to the radio.

All broadcasters (TV, too) have been forced to dumb-down as, just as happened with physical travelers 50 years ago, any mental traveler with half a brain has left their sinking ships for the intercontinental airliner called the internet. Broadcasters are only left with the old and (mentally) enfeebled.

Ooo don't get me started.

Clear Channel has bought up about 1/2 the radio stations in Miami. It's also pretty clear by listening to the music. 1) They often have a tape playing with the same songs around the same time of day. 2) "Ass", "Hell", "Damn" and "Shit" are now bleeped in songs, but not "bitch". Misogyny is totally acceptable.

Check out OUR ONLY Classic Rock station, 105.9. This is Clear Channel's policy statement which is identical on every CC station across the nation. Please note that on the front page, you'll see a hellofa [BLEEP] lot of T&A, the women are practically naked, especially if you click the "Foxy Ladies" button.

But please don't say Hell or Damn in our rock-n-roll. Thank you very much.

I don't even want to go into their idea of "Classic Rock". I suspect the DJs have very little input on what gets aired. I'm guessing, but since they still play Stairway to Heaven and Smoke on the Water EVERY day, I have a hard time believing these are DJ song pics. This is not how music was meant to be listened to. Those songs have been forever ruined by overplay and should be wrapped in a time capsule and buried at this point.

I despise Clear Channel and am deeply depressed that radio is going the way of TV. There's barely any free radio worth listening to.

I don't know if Bowie was talking about the demise of music or whether it was some kind of prophecy, but Diamond Dogs is pretty prophetic.

"This ain't Rock-n-roll. This is Genocide!"

At any rate, CL, I'm not sure why you may have thought that corporations were anything but money makers. In fact, I doubt Rush would have apologized if he hadn't lost his advertisers.

"This ain't Rock-n-roll. This is Big Brother!"

I'm not convinced that George Bush isn't an evil man. I think he had his own little brand of axis of evil (Bush, Chaney, Rove) and these men paved the way for the utter craziness we currently see before us.

(And that was way longer than I expected LOL)

Great work, CL.
