Get rid of ‘vulgar’ programming

To the Editor:

Thank you and ditto from me to Bruce Frassinelli for his opinion article in the May 4 issue of The Press.

I have been wanting the courage to lash out at someone for a long time but did not know how to address the vulgar, obscene, profane programming on TV and the radio (songs using obscene words) lyrics played today.

I don’t call it music. It is noise pollution.

It is everywhere — malls, even grocery stores, restaurants, outdoor areas where someone like me would just like to sit quietly, read and enjoy scenery.

What can we do to get rid of the “new” “Family Feud” and “Match Game”? They are not family shows.

I am appalled at the sexual and vulgar questions and responses. I watch the “old ones” of the ’70s. They are enjoyable and fun.

I was totally unaware of the controversial eye-popping titles on children’s books as stated in the editorial.
