Here is a list of the sponsors for the radio station mentioned in my previous post, copied and pasted from an email I received after the asterisks:

*****

Somebody on the CNMC Topica list asked about the advertisers for this
radio station and how to contact them with copies of our complaints. I
just posted this:

------------------

I found a website where someone posted the sponsors for this radio
station:

http://instinctmagazine.com/the-watercooler/the-trans-has-been-attacked-and-you-need-to-help.html#jc_allComments

The original source for that appears to be here: http://www.krxq.net/pages/293097.php

Below are the sponsors they listed, along with their websites... note
that one of them, Chipotle, has already pulled all their advertising
in response to complaints about the show. They did so even before
today's non-apology.

At least one of the larger sponsors, BofA, actually might care about
their image in the LGBT community. They have a high rating in the
HRC's Corporate Equality Index. (For info about that, see here: http://www.hrc.org/issues/cei.htm
... Note the "Search Our Employer Database link.)

Many of these businesses extend well beyond Sacramento.

If you can listen online (which you can), then you are indeed within broadcast range!

I'm a long long time listener to Rob, Arnie, and Dawn. Rob Williams owns the show, not 98 rock. Its produced by Williams broadcasting. Despite their TG bashing (well Arnie's for the most part with some support of Rob's. Dawn always is supportive to us)

Anyone who listened to them can tell you that Rob has one policy if you don't like what they say, change the channel, listen to something else. But Rob, Arnie, and Dawn are also the number one radio show in Sacramento by a ratio to 3:1 to the second show.

Now once they actually did go far in the past with the jokes when they made fun of SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome). The Radio station received such a large out cry of listeners that they issued an apology and since then they have always tip toed around child death stories.

But they do make fun of everything and every one, most of all each other. Going on about how Arnie is an ignorant fat bigot, Dawn is a liberal hypocrite and religious nut ball, then Rob is an arrogant rich ass hole.

I stand by with Rob's statement, if you don't like what they say then change the channel. I do when they start their trans bashing. Otherwise I tune in every weekday just about at www.robarnieanddawn.com where they can be listen in live. We all have things we make fun of and bash on. R,A,D just reflect that.

Of course there is nothing wrong with saying you don't like what they are saying and let them know. I'm sure if there are enough, something will be done.
