Hey, KFAB -- Cool It with the Racy Photos, Okay?

I have to admit I'm not a talk show junkie. When I'm in the car, the radio is almost always off nowadays...because the oldies stations are no longer "oldie" enough to suit my love for either big band or classic rock. Claire, however, does listen faithfully to Rush Limbaugh and others. So do most of my friends.

However, if they knew that KFAB, the Omaha station that airs Rush Limbaugh, features on its opening web page several links to scantily-clad women (i.e., Celebrity Babes, Nothing But Hand Bras, Sex Tape Controversies, Playboy Bunnie Babes, Beautiful Women With Instruments, Bikini Babes, Chicks With Fish, Hot Hispanic Celebs, Olympic Babes, and Jessica Simpson), they would probably opt to listen to Rush on Lincoln's KLIN.

Claire now does...via the internet when she's listening at home and via the car radio when she's on the road. Plus KLIN has her other favorites too: Laura Ingraham, Mark Levin, Michael Medved, Dennis Prager, Sean Hannity, et al.

That's too bad for the advertisers who use KFAB. Claire and our friends do a lot of shopping.

We're passing along the news about KLIN as an alternative even as I'm asking KFAB to reconsider their tacky tease on its web page.

I sent a brief e-mail request to KFAB's Program Director ( and their
Marketing & Promotions Director ( and I'll let you know if there is a response. That would be nice of them -- and a good business decision.

My note is printed below. You may want to direct a similar request to them. And then pass the word on.

Uh, KFAB; about that unprofessional, offensive and awfully tacky feature that you post on the front page of your web site -- you know, the 8-10 links connecting to scantily clad women? Could you nix it? Soon?
