Two chicks too many

From the Department of Where was the mighty Killdozer?:

Was the Hottest 100 Of All Time sexy? asks Triple J’s Hack
July 13, 2009
(in entertainment, gender & feminism)

A couple of weeks ago, guest Hoyden Orlando asked why Triple J’s first draft of a “potted history of music” failed to showcase significant numbers of women. (The history has since been edited.) The “Hottest 100 Of All Time” has since aired, and audiences have been shocked to find that only two songs in the top 100 – two! – were sung by women…

Nasty, nasty boys
Don’t mean a thing
Oh you nasty boys
Nasty, nasty boys, don’t ever change
Oh you nasty boys

I’m not a prude, I just want some respect
So close the door if you want me to respond
Cause privacy is my middle name
My last name is control
No, my first name ain’t baby
It’s Janet… Ms. Jackson if you’re nasty

    Tsk. Tsk. Doesn’t square with the reputation of JJJ listeners as “Democrat voters”, as Tony Biggs called them a few years back (when people still voted for the Democrats).

    That whole station went to shit when Michael Tunn left. JJJ without Tunny is like Saved By The Bell Without Zac Morris.

    I can remember when JJ went national. That is, broadcast into Melbourne.

    It was shit then, and it’s still shit now.

    Thank fuck for community and public radio.

    I used to listen to them in my early teens and found it strange that presenters would constantly be cut off mid-sentence by the start of a song. It turns out that JJJ was as tightly programmed and controlled as any commercial network, with presenters given x number of seconds to make their witty remarks to the ‘youth’ before the next Silverchair or M-People song. Still, it serves its purpose for the rural bucket bong brigades. Forward the rural bucket bong brigades!
