DJ St. John has played San Francisco Pride for the last 15 years, but Clear Channel’s radio sponsorship of the event may prevent him from spinning the ones and twos again. To blame? The same media conglomerate who airs anti-gay conservative commentators Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh, which is blocking St. John from playing Pride because he recently switched overseers.
Clear Channel, which is sponsoring pride, got left behind by St. John when he jumped to CBS, says one report.
However an SF Pride volunteer has said that each stage has a producer who decides whether or not to accept Clear Channel’s sponsorship and that “there are many other possible reasons a given DJ might not be on any given stage’s line up… there is no blanket ban from SF Pride on having CBS or other non-Clear Channel DJs.”
How many queers does it take to turn on a turnttable?
