Radio for Women?
For those of you who don’t know who Kurt Bestor is… well, he is a composer who is well known along the Wasatch Front as one who has given concerts and written music for the Olympics, etc. He is a popular figure with the 30-60 year old women… uh.. heart-throb.
So, yesterday I forgot my Nano at home, and I found 820 on my AM dial.
Sure enough, there was the familiar voice of Kurt Bestor and his congenial style. However, much to my surprise(and horror)he and his co-host were interviewing some woman who had affiliated herself with a female psychologist, and she was going on and on about the psychologist’s achievements. Get this: “She has 10 children, and they all sing and play, the older ones have all gone on missions.” (my ears perked up.. missions? Is this an LDS Radio Station?) She continued, “This woman is so amazing! Her house is always clean, and she never wears jeans.”
Never wears jeans? Is this some hallmark of a righteous life? What was I listening to?
So, today I tuned in again… for entertainment purposes only.
Kurt was interviewing an author… she had written a book entitled “Soul Searching.” Hmmmm, I thought. Something spiritual? Something introspective?
Nope. And LDS Romance. BLECH… SPIT… COUGH.
Hey… Kurt, man, I love you.. I laways have.. but honey, this is drivel! This is propagating the crap that keeps LDS women in their tiny little world.
I am going to write the station and voice my opinion. Maybe they will have me on the show to talk about my life’s experiences…
