Clear Channel DJ in violation of FCC

Possible FCC violation by commercial broadcasters during anti-NAB protest....we need evidence!
During a protest this morning (Thurs, 9/22) outside San Franscisco's Clear Channel Communications building, the hosts of KYLD 94.9 FM's morning show, 'The Doghouse,' came outside to confront the demonstrators.

During the melee (which took place between 8 and 10 AM), the two 'Doghouse' members began shoving some of the demonstrators, using derogatory language -- and repeatedly yelling 'Fuck you' to people in the crowd.

Interestingly enough, these 'Doghouse' folks were equipped with wireless microphones - and we need to know if any of their confrontation went out live over the air.

Using profane language during morning drive is a violation of FCC rules. Some of those assaulted and insulted would like to file a complaint about the incident, but they're looking for proof that such statements were broadcast (nobody in the street was listening to the radio at the time).

If you heard this morning's 'Doghouse' show on KYLD 94.9FM, and can confirm the comments in question WERE broadcast, PLEASE call the Media Alliance at (415) 546-6334, and ask for Lyn Gerry or Andrea Buffa.

If you have a recording of this morning's 'Doghouse' show, we'd especially like to hear from you. Please help yank the leash of these Clear Channel corporate radio dogs!!
