CBS RADIO Alternative KXTE (X107.5)/LAS VEGAS' DAVE, MAHONEY AND DK MORNING SHOW made their position clear on "equal rights for all" TODAY's morning show; featuring a number of local and national celebrities with interesting perspectives on the SUPREME COURT ruling yesterday that furthered gay rights. Also, throughout the show they exclusively played "Same Love" by MACKLEMORE & RYAN LEWIS to heighten awareness.
KXTE Morning man DAVE FARRA told ALL ACCESS, "That was the ONLY song we played during the morning show today (along with our regular content). Played it 8x throughout the hours of 6-9a."
Below is a statement from the morning team that was posted on their FACEBOOK page:
Yesterday the SUPREME COURT passed two landmark decisions by ruling 'The Defense of Marriage Act' unconstitutional and refusing to hear Prop 8, which ends the CALIFORNIA ban on gay marriage.
We don't believe this is a political issue.
We do believe in human rights, civil rights, and equal rights for all.
We believe that no song says it better than MACKLEMORE's "Same Love," which is a song that champions equal rights for all. Thus, this will be the only song we play throughout the entirety of our show on THURSDAY morning.
His lyrics say it best: "We might not be the same, but that's not important, No freedom till we're equal, damn right I support it."
