Shut down CAVE FM 977 Benson for illegal broadcasting
A member of our community has brought to light a serious issue with our local radio station, CAVE FM 97.7. Once the community heard of this we were outraged. Regardless of how you have felt about this radio station in the past, this has crossed a huge line!
CAVE broadcasted a sickening message,(apparently many times over more than one year) about a huge issue that plagues this country, child pornography, There is no excuse for this and they need to be shut down.
Below you will see a link to the recorded broadcast as well as a link to the online complaint form for the FCC. We as a community may not be able to fix the world, but we can keep this garbage out of our community.
We are mothers, fathers, children.. We are families that do not have to put up with this garbage. Let's stand together and make sure this never happens again!!

RE: Complaint Against KAVV-FM 97.7
To Whom It May Concern:
As mothers, fathers and children of the Benson, Arizona and the surrounding communities, we come to you in hopes of creating change in our community. This letter is regarding a continuous and heinous broadcast from our local radio station, KAVV FM 97.7, regarding child pornography
During this broadcast, the broadcaster states that it is a “Public Service Message”. Speaks about “naked juveniles” and saving your family grief and saving the taxpayers money by hiding it on an external drive and to never keep printed photos where anyone can find them.
According to your Regulation of Obscenity, Indecency and Profanity, “It is a violation of federal law to air obscene programming at any time…. Among other things, the FCC has authority to issue civil monetary penalties, revoke a license, and deny a renewal application. In addition, a federal district court may impose fines and/or imprisonment for up to two years on those who are convicted of criminal violations of the law.” We respectfully request that you review our complaint and all evidence involved and revoke the license owned by Stereo 97, Inc. (KAVV-FM 97.7) for continued violation of this regulation.
For your review, we have attached a petition from members of the surrounding communities whom support this cause. Thank you for your time and consideration in this matter.
