1. Music has a strong influence. It impacts our mindsets and sends messages! Whether that message is positive or in the case of what we hear most today: negative.

2. Great music is out there, made by great artists with great messages. However they are not getting played on the radio.

3. They are overshadowed by the type of music outlined above-

4. What happened to radio versions of songs? Nowadays, the original and radio version are pretty much one in the same with a couple cut out words here and there

Letter to
Mainstream media!!!!! Sex, negative, demeaning content of the music played on public radio
I just signed the following petition addressed to: Stopping the indescretion of sex, negative, demeaning content of the music played on public radio.

DEMAND MAINSTREAM MEDIA GIVES FAIR PLAY TO MUSIC OF MORE SUBSTANCE.

THE ISSUE:

1. Music has a strong influence. It impacts our mindsets and sends messages! Whether that message is positive or in the case of what we hear most today: negative.

2. Great music is out there, made by great artists with great messages. However they are not getting played on the radio.

4. What happened to radio versions of songs? Nowadays, the original and radio version are pretty much one in the same with a couple cut out words here and there.

If YOU...

*Agree that the mainstream radio shouldn’t casually send negative messages, by playing such songs 20 times a day

* Know that the majority of the music played on public radio is not appropriate for younger ages

*Think that media outlets should start being responsible in the role they play in our communities

*Are tired of radio/TV personalities complaining about the state of our communities (teen pregnancy, drugs, killings, etc) yet continuing to promote these things through their media waves!!

THEN....

HELP US PROTEST MAINSTREAM MEDIA AND DEMAND THEY GIVE FAIR PLAY TO MUSIC OF MORE SUBSTANCE

SIGN THE PETITION! AND PASS IT ON TO YOUR FACEBOOK FRIENDS TO SIGN TOO!



Music isn’t the only problem. And that protesting radio stations is not going to be a quick fix to all the issues. However, by voicing our concern, precedence can be set. Precedence for these stations plus the corporations that control them to take into consideration our concerns as CONSUMERS.

By becoming unified and consistent, we can pull together our efforts for positive change.


We want to hear your thoughts, opinions and feedback!

Please utilize the wall and discussion boards.

And don’t forget to pass on the petition!

Thank you for your time!
