Red-Faced Jazz

A U.K.-based radio station's programmers are understandably red-faced after they inadvertently aired five minutes of a gay porn soundtrack.

Pink News reports that Jazz FM, which focuses on light jazz, standards and occasional blues numbers, aired a recording of what sounded like "two British men in a mostly wordless, but fairly graphic, exchange" on Sunday.

You can listen to a recording of the broadcast here (WARNING: contains graphic language).



Mike Vitti, the station's head of programming, has issued a statement apologizing for the gaffe: "Unfortunately we had an unauthorized access to the live feed this evening which resulted in a highly regrettable incident. Please accept our profound and sincere apologies for any offence that may have been caused.”

Mike Vitti, station programme director, said disciplinary action would follow.

A spokesman for the broadcasting regulator Ofcom told PinkNews.co.uk that it has “received a small number of complaints and is currently assessing whether the broadcast broke the Broadcasting Code”. If found in breach, broadcasters can receive a fine or the loss of a license although this is thought highly unlikely in this case.

PinkNews.co.uk wrote that a broadcast assistant was watching pornography while the recorded show was being broadcast and that they accidentally transmitted the audio of the porn to the nation because their microphone was erroneously active.

Funny for sure. As for the sound track, think it is the standard one used on almost every porn I have ever seen. Lots of "aaaaahhhhaaaa" a few "mmmmmmmsss" an a couple of "oh, f...yes at the end...."

Ha Ha Ha

HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! I remember when we "cracked" the satellite receivers' audio track and had live NFL football up on the main monitors at work and the Chief Engineer walked in. He just shook his head and said "whatever the heck you do, do NOT get that on the air!" (It was a PBS station.)

Peace <3

The "addition" certainly proves rather entertaining, and gives an extra jizz to the music :)
