    Radio host infuriates cyclists

    By BRUCE SICELOFF, Staff Writer

    G105 radio host Bob Dumas told listeners last week that he just hated to see bicycle riders on the
    road. He laughed at stories about running cyclists down, and he talked up the idea of throwing
    bottles at bikers.

    It wasn't funny to cycling enthusiasts across the Triangle. This week they are lobbying government
    officials and local advertisers in a campaign to punish radio station WDCG and its corporate owner,
    Clear Channel of San Antonio, and to promote bicycle safety.

    "One caller said her dad had purposely hit a biker on the road on the way to church one Sunday and
    kept on going," said G105 listener Holly
    N. Proctor of Cary on Tuesday of the Sept. 21 and 22 broadcasts. "That got laughs. Bob thought that
    was funny.

    "And Bob said he'd love to be on a motorcycle and driving it down a bike lane. Because he didn't
    think bikers should be allowed on the road. He said they should ride on the sidewalk," she said.

    Proctor, a photo technician at N.C. State University, joined two dozen fellow cyclists at a 5 p.m.
    protest outside the radio station's offices in North Raleigh.

    Tom Norman , director of the N.C. Division of Bicycle and Pedestrian Transportation , said that
    reports about the broadcasts revealed dangerous ignorance of state law.

    "I have talked to the G105 manager, who was not aware that it is legal to ride bicycles on the
    public roadways of North Carolina, that cycles are legally recognized as vehicles in North
    Carolina," Norman said. "Where do you draw the line? What is the distinction between humor and
    actually inciting or encouraging listeners to harass a group of people?"

    Kenneth C. Spitzer, the station manager, declined to provide tapes or transcripts of the
    broadcasts to Norman or to a Capital Area transportation planning committee that discussed the
    controversy Tuesday.

    In e-mail responses to several Triangle area residents who complained to the station, Spitzer said
    the "Bob and Madison " show aims to entertain listeners with "animated banter ... that can be both
    humorous and caustic." But he said some comments last week "went too far, and for that we sincerely
    apologize. ...

    "Be assured that G105 does not advocate harm to cyclists," he wrote.

    G105 is the third Clear Channel station to draw fire in the past four months for on-air comments
    perceived as advocating violence or animosity toward bicycle riders. Officials at WMJI in Cleveland
    and KLOL in Houston apologized in July and September for similar remarks. They agreed to broadcast
    "share the road" messages and to finance bicycle safety campaigns.

    Leaders of the N.C. Bicycle Club outlined requests they said would help Clear Channel "mend
    relations with Triangle bicyclists," including similar public safety campaigns and a
    detailed apology.

    Spitzer declined to comment. A corporate spokeswoman to whom inquiries were directed Tuesday did not
    return calls.

    Members of area cycling clubs have shared copies over the past week of protest letters to the
    Federal Communications Commission, to state and local prosecutors and to G105 sponsors. Several
    critics noted that G105 radio hosts have sparked controversy in the past with crude stunts.

    "It's one thing to drive around with a naked man on the radio station's van," said Raleigh lawyer
    Kimberly Bryan. "To encourage citizens to harm cyclists, that has crossed a different line. It's
    irresponsible. It's not caustic, it's not banter, it's not funny."

    David Smith , 38, a software developer at UNC-Chapel Hill, took it personally. His right forearm
    still bears the scar of an attack by an Orange County motorist who found Smith cycling down a rural
    road one afternoon in April 2001.

    "How are people going to take this, what was mentioned on G105?" Smith asked. "Are people going to
    say, 'You know, I'm tired of these cyclists?' Is that situation going to exacerbate what happened to
    me, with somebody else coming down a back road?"

    After running Smith off the road, the driver stopped, chased him down on foot and struck him with a
    hatchet, sending him into a ditch and over the handlebars of his wrecked bike. Marvin Glenn Manring
    of Orange County pleaded guilty in July 2001 to assault with a deadly weapon. He promised to enroll
    in an anger management program.

  2. About this whole story.. Clearly I'm a bicyclist, since I'm on this newsgroup. But I mean.. is this
    whole thing really this big of a deal???

    There are a lot of cyclists that talk about doing shit to "gas guzzling SUV drivers". Whether it be
    scratch their cars or putting stickers on them (http://www.changingtheclimate.com/). Just go to a
    local Critical Mass, and you're bound to hear a lot of trash talking towards motorists (at least
    that's how it is in my city). All of a sudden one asshole DJ speaks his mind, and it's a huge deal?
    I've also volunteered for community radio, and I've heard hippie DJ's saying plenty of stupid shit
    about Motorists too. Calm down...

    Since when do you take the morons of morning talk radio seriously anyways???

    When we hear bicyclists encouraging violently attacking cars and their drivers, perhaps something
    like throwing explosives up tailpipes, or throwing large rocks off overpasses at oncoming cars, then
    we could say there's some sort of parity. However, these people aren't just complaining about
    bicycles, they're advocating acts that could easily kill or seriously injure cyclists.

    Putting a bumper sticker on a car, or even scratching it, is not comparable to throwing a heavy
    projectile at an unprotected person going at moderately high speed.

    Yes, but that doesn't mean they're equally wrong. Scratching a car is much less wrong than
    attempted murder; putting a sticker on a car, in most cases, is less wrong than scratching a car.
    Not to say I'm reccomending any of these things of course, but some wrong things are more
    justifiable than others.

    There's a *big* difference between putting a scratch or sticker on an inanimate object and causing
    physical harm possibly resulting in death to a human being. Not that I'm advocating either...

    And there is also a *very big* difference between individuals talking about scratching cars or
    putting stickers on them and a public figure with a "bully pulpit" like the public airways
    advocating that their listeners, who may well numbers in the thousands or more, take part in phyical
    assaults on others.

    No. Private property is not sacred. When your private property starts endangering my and others well
    being, then we have an interest in it. Putting a bumper sticker on your nazi shitwagon telling you
    that it's ruining our air and guzzling a scarce resource is an expression of that interest.

    Kevan, you are quite proud of the human race, aren't you? You believe that we can have such a
    profound effect in such a short time -- ruining out air in about 100 years. Here's a piece of a post
    I've previously made on this subject:

    -=- Natural occurrences, such as the eruption of Mt. Pinatubo (more widely known for it's temporary
    cooling effect caused by ash and dust in the air), have spewed forth more greenhouse gases than
    mankind has ever caused. Additionally, Mt. Pinatubo's eruption resulted in "Unprecedented size of
    1993 Antarctic ozone hole by lofting ozone destroying species into the stratosphere", according to
    http://www.atmos.umd.edu/~bruce/m1239702.html as well as rapid climate fluctuations caused by the
    temporary cooling effect. All of these things, both warming and cooling, are part of the natural
    system of Earth. This planet will survive and prosper no matter what we do to it, and it will absorb
    most of what we do without becoming unbearable. The biggest problem we pose is our overpopulation,
    and that will likely reach critical mass and result in major dying off sooner or later...whether by
    disease or war/violence. -=-

    >guzzling a scarce resource is an expression of that interest.

    Err...what difference does it make to you if we use up our dinosaur juice? Then we'll all be forced
    to do what YOU think is right -- give up automobiles for bikes.

    --Natural occurrences, such as the eruption of Mt. Pinatubo--

    A Rush fan. Can I ask a stupid question?

    Does it matter how much naturally occurring events cause things to happen as much as it does what we
    cause? We can't affect what Mt Pinatubo does, but we can affect what we do . . .

    I am a grey hair and I remember when the same argument of Mt Pinatubo was used about the poor
    condition of the sewage treatment plants all across the country -- when it was pointed out that they
    would regularly dump raw sewage out into a lake, the powers that be said, "What little that we
    contribute to the lake's demise is small . . . our few hundred thousand gallons would be diluted by
    the millions of gallons in that lake." Same argument was used for the ocean. And litterbugs use the
    same rational "This one little can means beans in the big picture. All those acres of land, so my
    can doesn't matter."

    While we can't control nature, we can control ourselves. It is poor form to admit that we can't or
    that it doesn't matter.

  11. If you actually think that your fellow citizens will start Murdering and Physically assaulting
    innocent people, because a morning talk radio host had a stupid laugh about the whole thing.... then
    there's some other problems we should be worrying about instead.

    If there were cases being reported about the legions of followers this DJ has, physically assaulting
    cyclists, then I'll gladly wave the protest sign. Until then, I hold this in the same ranks as
    grandma's trying to sue a video game company because their stupid kid (who happened to own a copy of
    Vice City, or Doom) brought a gun to school and shot someone.

    But, in all fairness.. feel free to think what you want. If you want to be the one figuring out the
    "differences" between bad and more bad, you're the doc, doc. When it comes to "public airwaves"
    (which aren't really that public to begin with), the whole "if someone told you to jump off the
    brooklyn bridge" arguement comes into mind.

    I obviously don't agree with what the DJ says, I think it was stupid. But, my whole arguement is
    that DJ's say a lot of stupid shit, and so does everyone else in this world.

  12. Well maybe the DJ thinks that running over cyclists is an expression of his interest... it's not
    your personal job to figure out what is wrong and what is more wrong for the world.

    I only own a bicycle and I'm attempting to go my whole life without ever getting my licence or
    owning a motor vehicle. I don't like SUV's (or how you put it, nazi shitwagons), and I express that
    interest by not owning one. Not by destroying property that other people have a right to own.

    It certtainoly is my right, and I get to talk about it to. If you don't like it, vote Republican.
    They hate free thought and free speech.

    Slapping a bumper sticker on an SUV is not destroying property. Get some perspective.

    destroy

    To ruin completely; spoil.

    To tear down or break up; demolish.

    To do away with; put an end to.

    To kill: destroy a rabid dog.

    To subdue or defeat completely; crush.

    To render useless or ineffective.

    What a mighty thing a bumper sticker is that it can do any of that to 3 tons of metal. IF only
    they could.

  15. If I put my face a few feet from someone's ass while they're farting, it makes it hard for me to
    breathe too. Doesn't mean farts are ruining the envoronment.

    I don't disagree with what you're saying, just taking on your challenge of "dispute that" since
    I'm bored.

    You haven't seen _me_ in that clear channel thread(s).

    I'm a radio announcer, too.

    Of course, my show is more tasteful than clear channel shows, because I am a classical music
    host. Woo!

    It's 12:45 in the morning in beautiful downtown Shreveport. I'm your host, Kevan, and that was
    Bach's "Christus lag in doodszwachtels", one of my personal favorite cantatas.

    stupid name if I ever heard one. Probably he was a cop, all he ever wrote music about was dictators
    and shooting perps.

    Anyhow, Woo Hoo, we have a commercial coming up for NAZI SHITWAGONS, you'll breathe a lot easier
    after that one is over.

    And I want to remind all you radio listeners out there, if you send me a thousand dollars I won't
    post for a month.

    First off: NO CHORAL MUSIC.

    Second: No Commercials!

    Third: Don't ask for money like that until pledge drive.
