Is Active Rock Radio the Soft-core Porn Pusher of the Internet?


Have you looked at the web site for any active rock radio station
lately? When did you have to start featuring a "Hottie of the Day" (An example) to get music fans to check out your web site? Here are just some of the categories of "Hotties" I discovered recently while researching contact info for radio stations nationally (my social comments are in parenthesis):

-Whipped Cream Bikinis (not gonna work in the sun ladies)
-Drunk Girls Kissing (OK, so if you're female this is old news...)
-Hand Bras (gee, I never knew modesty qualified as clothing)
-Under Boob (for those with a fetish for only seeing the bottom half of
boobs)
-Chicks that Rock! (what does the exclamation point mean?)
-Wet on the Net (don't electrocute yourself)
-Hot Chicks with Fish (I was scared to click on the link)
-Hot Cheerleaders (an age old fantasy, fellas)
-Bath Towel Babes
-Ghouls Gone Wild (nice play on words)
-Goth Girls (for those who are too cheap to visit the Suicide Girls site)
-Side Boob! (again with the exclamation point?)
-Maxim's Top 100 (my husband votes religiously for Maxim's Hometown Hotties every week)
-The Breast Test (I passed)
-Tramp Stamps (the first time I heard this term was in Wedding Crashers and
it still makes me laugh)
-Tag or Release (just plain mean)
-Butterface Girls (again, I was too scared to click on the link)
-PETA Hotties (Pammy, Hef's Girl Hollie)
-Match that Ass (can they consider this portion of the site educational?)
-Sexy Tats
-Wedgies!
-Lovely & Large (breasts of course, heaven forbid they actually feature a normal sized woman)

My two cents worth--it's a sad day when you can't attract fans to your site to check out the music you're playing, maybe it's time to start playing better music!

I was checking out this website called AOL Stalker. Its amazing what people are searching for and most of it revolves around porn. At the end of the day though, class acts always stand out and rule!

Its all a marketing scheme to take into account the billion dollar industry that the porn industry brings in. This way they attract the people who may not even fully like the radio station but will go there for Babe of The Day. Its pros outweigh the cons, but it still can be a risky maneuver. Great read though! Looked like a lot of fun to study

When sitting down with the program director of a very popular radio station he told me that the number one push from their marketing consultant was “Generate talk.” Not talk about music, talk about the antics or pranks that the on air DJ’s were doing. I don’t have a strong opinion towards either side, however, it is an interesting twist that’s occurring. It’s not about the music anymore.

Sex sells, period.
