What must "Left Angeles" think of this?

In today's online version of the LA Times, this article made the top of the front page:

It's morning drive time in Los Angeles.

Howard Stern is hosting "Stump the Perv" on KSLX-FM (97.1), which features a male contestant pitted against a Nevada call girl in a porn trivia contest. He wins and gets five minutes alone with her in Howard's bathroom.

Meanwhile, Jamie, Jack and Stench on KYSR-FM (98.7) are talking about gay bull riders . . . and their white-trash childhoods — all topics that would be applauded at most of the ratings-hungry morning shows on the radio dial.

That is, except for one show — "The Family Friendly Morning Show" from 5 to 9 a.m. hosted by Billy Burke on KFSH-FM (95.9), a Christian-themed station often referred to as the Fish. On one recent morning, Burke is discussing one of his favorite promotions, Random Acts of Kindness Day, where listeners are encouraged to phone in their stories of good deeds either witnessed or performed.
I wonder if LA can take it. How long before the ACLU or some other left-wing organization complains about this type of "family values" being "forced down their throats"?

Would they take the same advice they give those who complain about raunchy TV - "turn the channel."
