It was reported in The Week newsmagazine that a new radio station in Hawaii is less than pleased with the call letters assigned to it by the Federal Communication Commission (or FCC).
The offending call letters are KUNT. The station manager reportedly has filed a request for new call letters.
Not to be outdone, we have a local music station here in L.A. whose call letters are KLIT…but no one seems to care about that. Apparently no one is offended at the proper name for a body part, only the slang ones.
Perhaps future broadcasting faux pas may consist of radio stations KOCK and KOME, or maybe a disc jockey named Connie Lingus.
