I guess that is better than selling thongs for nuns!

Limited market, to say the least.

You'd be surprised what they wear under those heavy robes... LOL

Or maybe I should say... don't wear!

Okay, Okay, this isn't really the right forum to tell this in, but my mother's best friend was a nun. She use to tell us all kinds of stories. For example, going to mass with just the robes on and absolutely NO foundation.... They even wear bikini underwear and all sort of provocative things. She said especially the younger one just coming in.

So, there you have it, that's my story and I am sticking it to it. I mean sticking to it.

One of my best friends was a nun, as well. Well into her seventies now, she left the nunnery at about age 28. within five years, she had married and had four kids.

She insists, you see, that she left the sisterhood as nuns, at least back then, got none.

The woman is a delight. The Church, I am sure, was poorer for her leaving the sisterhood. Still, she is a great woman. I have no idea what she wore under her robes, nor would I ever ask her!

Not that we would ever forget KPFT, Houston. Cloning the "KDIL pirate format" _was_ mighty edgy and impressive 25 years ago. But how do your extreme generalities actually relate to OutQ or Sirius...in 2003?

That was the foundation (no pun intended) but it was adapted to the real world and had to evolve into something more widely appealing. Ask Lee Abrams what he thought of it.

There is a certain ''vibe'' to every kind of special-interest programming and having liners with some Charlie Tuna wannabe saying ''OutQ this and that" really close to the microphone is not compatible with women's programming.

Having a wisecracking male in the studio is inhibiting and inappropriate in a lesbian program environment. There is not a single show on OutQ with just women (and without the all-male production elements).

And I'm totally sure that all but the most pathetic losers have forgotten anything that went on the radio that long ago. We have a saying here, that you're only as good as your last project.

It would be very much to Lee Abrams' advantage...perhaps a humbling experience for him, even...if he hired you as a consultant at XM. Assuming he lurks here where 'you're only as good as your last project', might you tell him (and us) about the radio stations you've programmed since working for Pacifica?

OutQ can be outstanding within their "broad appeal" concept: Dr/Col Grethe Cammermeyer, who is substituting for Corey Johnson this week, _should_ have her own OutQ show. She's very listenable and hardly subservient.

I'm way too old for that. I can assure you there is a vast wealth of fresh talent lurking at the NCE end of the FM band (in the important big cities, anyway) who have a firm vision of what radio could be, much more interesting than what you or I or Papa could come up with. They work cheap and haven't been jaded by decades of corporate subservience.

I pretty much gave up on music radio programming when people quit ''listening''. The attention span of the average listener today is about as long as the first powered airplane ride. There is way too much clutter and chaos to do anything meaningful for the general public and get noticed. That was a bygone era.

Now I keep my head down and my hours flexible. I deal with machines who don't talk back. But I still know what I like (and don't like) when I hear it and I often know why I do (or don't) like it.

(I did do an overnight shift a few years back and felt like a trained chimp, FWIW.)

Is it just me, or does it seem that most things gay have to usually be about sex? You can hardly listen more than 5 minutes to OutQ without hearing some scatiological reference or, (to me) some innapropriate interrogation about what someone does in their bedroom.

Do straight people act like this? I know Howard Stern does...but that's why I don't really like Howard Stern.

Am I the only gay person in America who has learned other lessons from growing up gay other than how to get laid?

Seems like it.

You would prefer that they discuss the missionary position? This isn't supposed to be about the Holy Church or something.


They do talk politics and other stuff....but sex is of course of primary concern. Other types of gay programming would merely duplicate straight programming. Crocheting is crocheting whether the needle is crooked or straight.

I hear a lot of news about the GLBT community. McMullen and Johnson seems to take the stream and their talk a little more seriously, and it seems a little more 'refined' compared to say, Harrison.

No, I don't need to talk about the missionary position, I don't need to talk (or hear) about any sexual position at all, really.

"sex is of course of primary concern"...hmmm...don't tell me, you're a guy, right?

In all fairness, I feel obligated to disclose to you however, that I religiously watch C-SPAN (it's the only real news channel left!), listen to NPR, I really am in a Scrabble club and my mother's a librarian, so....

You wouldn't find my picture next to "racy" if you looked it up in the dictionary.

I mostly listen to the music channels, I'm not a big talk fan in general, so maybe I'm not a good "sister" for this thread!

this sister agrees with your 100%.

I gave up on OutQ after a week. I listen to Romain now and again but usually I don't even cruise by 149.

Okay, now you have done it.

Who IS John Galt?
