Fire Kimberly & Beck — Rochester, NY
Kimberly and Beck have continually said disgusting and disrespectful things on the radio and have barely been punished for it. They lost their jobs at The Buzz and were then hired at 95.1. They've made rude comments on transgender people, used the r word very often, and now have made fun of not one, but two tragic deaths (there's probably been more, but I only know of two). Once these comments began effecting my family, I (and hundreds of others) have decide it's time to take strong action. 95.1 has deleted most of the posts against Kimberly and Beck's recent comments on my brother's death, and they are continuing to delete more and more every day. Keep your comments on the kinder side. There's no need to stoop down to their level of negativity. Also, if you don't like the petition, don't sign it! Please sign and send this petition to your friends until we're heard. Thanks in advance.
Petition to SIRIUSXM RADIO
Create a Nursery Rhymes station
Dear SiriusXM Radio, Thousands of people who have children age 5 and younger have nothing to listen to on your service. We are asking you to please create a station that plays nursery rhymes and children's songs. Some examples: the wheels on the bus, itsy bitsy spider, Mary had a little lamb, London bridge and this old man. Toddlers everywhere and their parents need this.

Transfer the "donut-loving" stereotype from police to radio DJs
**Update 5.30.16** Please enjoy our live on-air DJs vs. COPS donut-eating contest. The idea that police officers are the only professionals in American society who eat more than their fair share of donuts has been pervasive since the 1950s. The truth is: we radio disc jockeys eat just as many. What's more, some police resent this stereotype, but there are no radio DJs who do. In recent years, there has been plenty of ungrateful sentiment about our hard-working and honorable police, so it's the least we can do to go ahead and take this stereotype off their hands. This way, when the police choose to eat 1, 2, or 3 donuts in a sitting (or whatever number of their choosing) they may do so without shame or side-eye smirks. Sometimes we radio disc jockeys spin as many as three songs in a row, so it's an accepted fact that we have plenty of time to eat donuts, while the police are busier than ever. It is a generally-accepted fact that radio disc jockeys eat more donuts than police, and we are the pound-for-pound favorite for the best group of individuals to receive the donut stereotype.

Petition to Michael Pettiette, Bruce Logan, CBS Radio Houston
Bring back Hot 95.7 and Sarah Pepper+Ivan
You said you were listening to us, and that this change was something that "we wanted". You were wrong. This stations number one listeners were millennials, and those who enjoyed today's best music. By changing this format you will forever be losing current and future listeners to mobile apps like Pandora, and Spotify. Essentially killing the millenials market for radio. We already have two adult contemporary radio stations in Houston, and with out a doubt, we do not need three. Besides Hot 95.7, the only other Pop/Top 40 station in Houston, is 104.1 KRBE, and that's just unacceptable. As a Houstonian, the morning drive to work every morning will be awful without the witty banter from The Hot 95.7 Hot Show with Sarah Pepper and Ivan. Everything from "Whatchu doin at the Courthouse" to the Daily details of Houstonians everyday lives, it's what made our mornings just that much better. So we the people of Houston, are asking you to please stop the format change from Hot 95.7 to "The Spot" and to continue the Morning Hot Show with Sarah Pepper and Ivan, before you lose all of your Top 40 listeners to online streaming apps for good.
Petition to CLEAR CHANNEL COMMUNICATIONS
GET METAL BACK ON HOUSTON, TX RADIO
Imagine scanning through Houston's radio stations and coming across a station playing Iron Maiden, Anthrax, Metallica, Pantera, Ozzy, Black Label Society, Avatar, Slayer, Megadeth, Skid Row and all the other metal and rock bands we never hear on Houston radio. If you have a love for rock and metal and you live in Houston you know you wont find a station geared toward those genres. I for one am tired of our favorite metal and rock being snubbed in a city as big and diverse as Houston. Radio stations in Houston, TX are and have been lacking variety for a long time. There are multiple country, rap, pop and spanish stations. The closest Houston radio gets to rock and metal is a classic rock station that plays a small selection of songs and an alternative station that also plays a small selection of very conservative music. There is a huge group of metal and rock fans in Houston who are starved for new and old music from these genres. Clear Channel oversees many stations we listen to and we need to voice our frustration over a genre that has been absent for far too long. How many country, pop and spanish stations do we really need? Let it be known that Houston needs a metal and rock station now! Thank you for your support. Please sign and share this many times over.
