Tameside FM explicit lyrics outrage
I know some people who contribute to discussion on this blog site have little time for Tameside Radio due its close connection with and occasional promotion of the ruling political regime within the borough. However, as commercial radio stations go I think it is good and I often listen to it as I find it has a good variety of music and features to cater for all tastes.
Bearing this in mind I tuned into Tameside FM just after 7pm on the evening of Friday 13th 2012 and I genuinely could not believe what I was hearing. Talk of sticking forks in peoples faces, glorification of Manchester as a ‘gun capital’ talk of shattering ligaments in jaws and suggestions of taking people onto the moors with torture or murder in mind.
This was just after 7pm in the evening and there was no prior warning that such depraved filth was about to be broadcast. Imagine if you were in the car with the kids on the way home from football training or something and this come on the radio?
You can listen to the whole show by clicking here but to save you the torture of listening to the whole show I uploaded a sample to Youtube.
After you have listened to the Youtube clip do let me know if I am being ‘oversensitive’ or am I right in saying filth like that should not be broadcast on a community radio station such as Tameside FM?
