Poll: Today's Live Poll
  • I am DJ and I'm in the service business. Your musical chef. You want an Oldies Omelet? Smooth Jazz Souffle? Some salsa with your Salsa? Place your order and it will be delivered through my woofers and tweeters. I like hip hop in small doses, but some crowds really get into it. My DJ company subscribes to a service that provides me with clean radio edits of pop songs. If it's OK with the FCC, it's OK with me. I agree it's a duty and responsibility of adults to do our best to shield our kids from mature subjects and material. But once someone is of legal age and old enough to "process" that information? I don't want to be anyone's moral arbiter. Count me in the camp that believes we've gone overboard with political correctness. That anyone who calls a group of African-American athletes "nappy-headed ho's" must be racist way deep down. Couldn't have been a morning shock jock doing what he was hired to do. That if a DJ pushes "play" on a song some might say is "violent or hateful", he is either an instrument of the devil or somehow agrees with the rapper's sentiments. Some DJ group doesn't want to play gangsta rap? Just don't take those gigs. But for them to tacitly represent that DJ's who continue to do so are damaging the moral fabric of our society is ridiculous. We're just here to rock the party!
