Boner Candidate #1 – Another Example of Why We Need A National Health Care System
Florida Insurers Accused Of Discriminating Against People With HIV.

Boner Candidate #2 – Don’t You Know Who I Am?
Man claiming to be Teddy Roosevelt's relative banned from Bluffton hotel. A Florida man claiming to be the descendant of a U.S. president was banned from a Bluffton hotel last week after he threatened to hit the manager.
Boner Candidate #3 – It Wasn’t Rape – She Got Emotional
Duke Student Sues For Diploma After He's Expelled for Sexual Assault. A senior at Duke University who was banned from graduating after a school panel found him responsible for raping an "emotional" classmate has filed suit to get his degree so he can accept a "prestigious position" offered to him by a firm on Wall Street.
Lewis McLeod, a psychology major from Australia, says that, without his degree, his entire future is on hold. According to the motion filed by Schwartz & Shaw of Raleigh, McLeod took a female Duke student back to his home on Nov. 14. McLeod alleges their sex was consensual and that the woman "got emotional" and began to cry.
It was a close contest today with the boners. Usually there is a clear-cut winner, but not today! Boner #3 “It Wasn’t Rape – She Got Emotional” won by ONE vote for the “coveted” Boner of the Day Award.

Kerry’s Pick – “Mickey Mouse March”
Kerry’s original pick was the Suburban Legend’s ska cover of “ You’ve Got A Friend In Me” from “Toy Story.” However, since that was from a Pixar movie and not an original Disney movie, it got vetoed. Instead, Kerry picked a cover of “Mickey Mouse March” by Andrew W.K.

Never before, in the history of Radio From Hell, have we picked a winner this quickly. It could be due to our loyal and attentive voters. It could be due to the massive support we receive from Radio From Hell. But, mostly we picked a winner because Kerry's isn't actually from a Disney movie and Gina's sucks. So, Bill wins!
Kids can be cruel. The internet can be cruel. Your neighbourhood butcher can be cruel. You brother is cruel. Your dog once bit you. The waiter at ______________ crop-dusted your table when dropping off appetizers and your mom says you should have been married by now.
Hell, a guy even makes it on national television and though he doesn't win he gets the news delivered by Heidi Klum. That kind of winning IS losing.
For Richie T even that kind of lose/winning leaves a guy open for insult to injury by some girl he doesn't even know...on Facebook.
If you want to send Richie words of comfort and encouragement you can stand by Richie's side by emailing him at Richie@X96.com. You can even email him if you have an anniversary coming up and need a singing telegram.
We though about holding a candlelight vigil, but we figured since the FCC makes us do so much PSA broadcasting each year anyway, we made this video instead to kill two (maybe 5) birds with one announcement:
In a bold move, after stating Snowbird's Oktoberfest celebration may not receive a permit to serve beer or wine, USLA or Utah State Liquor Authority representative, Mr. Behr Mehbrow, said the state may begin to looking into issuing permits for people who plan on having more than one person as a guest in their private residence while serving alcohol. Mr. Mehbrow said, "We aren't quite certain what state law defines as an event." He went on,"Utah has a fine tradition of confusion with these kinda [sic] things and it has served us, as a state, quite well in the past when you can't get served. I see no reason to not stay the course with our current proposals. If you are hosting friends or family at your residence for so much as a 'Mr. Belvedere' binge watching session on Netflix, in the state's eyes, you are hosting an event and should be held to the letter of the law."
Opponents of the measure argue privacy rights though their arguments weren't very comprehensible at the time this publication's inquiry, "Sup, Bro? Why do you have a notepad and pen out? Bro? Let's get blahhhhhh..."
More sober opponents are worried that religious events such as Christmas, Thanksgiving, Easter, Super Bowl Sunday, birthdays, Bar Mitzvahs, Bat Mitvazhs, Cinco De Mayo, Boxing Day, National Secretary Appreciation Day, your dad's birthday, Mother's Day and Thursday through Saturday nights may be affected. The Americans Served Citizen's Union spokesperson, Justin Aboutfiveoclocksomewhere, responded, "It is a serious problem when ordinary citizens can't celebrate in their own homes without the government stepping in. What's next? Photoshopping slacks and sleeves onto the Jazz Bear?"
Several national and local alcohol distributors, all asking to remain anonymous, provided the exact same statement: "That's some ol' bulls*@t!"
No doubt homeowners, renters, squatters and others who like to have wine tastings, whiskey pairings and a few brews with the homies while enjoying HBO on a Sunday night will take issue with the state's new alcohol policies. Many have even thought about turning their homes into private clubs and a surge in non-profit status applications have quadrupled in counties from Cache to Garfield. Also, a petition is already making the rounds online, which can be found here.
Utah residents may have to take this issue up at the polls next election season.
