The Junkies

Modern Rocker WHFS’s morning show, "The Junkies," offered a chance for listeners to trade their old porno for new tapes at various locations in the Washington-Baltimore region. Some Catholic high school students in suburban Baltimore weren’t amused and organized a protest against the promotion.

According to Baltimore’s WBAL-TV, several students at Notre Dame Prep took to the streets of Towson, MD in protest of the "porn swap." They assembled near one of the scheduled stops for the event.

"To be honest, we weren't expecting to change anybody's mind today, but people have been deterred, people have been calling the radio station and they've changed their minds about coming," one of the protestors said. "They've been driving around the block and they're too scared to come."

I think it's great that these young women took a stand on something they think is wrong. Maybe they encouraged some thought/discussion on the topic of free speech. It's interesting that they were using the right to free speech to demonstrate against someone else's.

I think in the end WHFS will benefit from this - there's some media coverage giving the station exposure, and they got ppl in "the community" to talk about the station. My guess is this will help the station ratings-wise, even if a few advertisers pull their ads from the station due to pressure from conservative groups.
