Get rid of “vulgar” programs

To the Editor:

Thank you and “ditto” from me to Mr. 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 lyrics played today.

I don’t call it music. It is noise pollution. It is everywhere — malls, grocery stores, restaurants and 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 article.
