Biggest FCC Blunder Stories

Doug Van Tuyl:
It is a long story... but I let one of my roommates on the air.... didn’t tell him he was on the air....  We had this cat with bowel problems... The roommate, whose air name was Captain Video, was gonna bring me something to eat from the house....  He said he was gonna bring a tuna fish sandwich... I asked if there was anything else to eat... and not knowing he was on the air said, " We can always scrape the cat shit off the blanket."   I thought I was dead.  One of my groupie listeners called.... and was laughing hysterically...
I told her it was probably my last show... fortunately it happened in the middle of the night and I didn’t get in trouble with my boss or the FCC....

Kevin Shira:
I'm proud to have never dropped the "F" bomb, but I squeaked out many lesser obscenities.  However, I did work with a guy in Detroit who had a mortal fear of fire.  One day, the consultant ran into the control room,
brandishing a fire extinguisher and screaming "FIRE!"  It was supposed to be a harmless prank.  But our poor DJ friend freaked out, threw his headphones off, and ran from the room - but not before screaming "MOTHERFUCKER" directly into the microphone!  Truly a golden broadcasting moment...

Ron Arrowsmith:
“After reading a tag line "Substantial penalty for early withdrawl, member FDIC." I went on to remark that "that was a policy that my girlfriend also embraced". Apparently the bank had the station on in the lobby. That was the second time I got fired - from KADE-AM, Boulder Colorado.”


Who had the worst taste in music? and
Who would you least like to hear on the air?


Most popular answer was the same person: “Myself”
