I know some people are asking... how can I explain this in simple terms to the d.j's? Here is an oversimplified way to guide your staff.

Equate indecent materail wth swearing. Swear words are only allowed on the air between 10 PM and 6 AM.

Obscenity can be equated to pornography. Pornography is NEVER allowed on the air.

If the staff has a question about a particular piece, they could be directed to hold off airing the material until they get an opinion from station management.

Please keep in mind that this is OVERSIMPLIFIED and may not work in all situations.
