WJRR's Fiasco "4 Boobs In The Morning" Billboard Raises Eyebrows

CLEAR CHANNEL Alternative WJRR (REAL ROCK 101one)/ORLANDO has gotten people's attention with its morning show billboard featuring THE FIASCO - TACO BOB and PAT LYNCH resting their heads near LAUNA's breasts with their eyes glancing down her top and the tag line, "4 Boobs In The Morning." The mayor appears to be more concerned with the location of the billboard, which is up along Interstate 4 near a pedestrian walkway in LAKE MARY, than the content.
Local CHANNEL 2 affiliate WESH-TV picked up on the story by reporting on last night (4/26), "The billboard is supposed to promote a local radio station, but some residents and now a mayor, say it advertises much more than that."
"If you walk across the bridge or you're working in the offices across the interstate here, it's something that you really can't hide from," said LAKE MARY MAYOR THOM GREENE. "It wasn't whether the billboard is appropriate or not, that's not really the question. It's the location of where the billboard is."
WJRR PD/morning show co-host PAT LYNCH said the billboard was designed to catch people's attention. "I don't think this board is anything more than just fun. It's describing what we are in the morning -- a bunch of boobs on JRR," he said.
THE FIASCO had the mayor on the morning show today. LYNCH told ALL ACCESS, "He doesn't have a problem with the billboard, just the placement which is directly across from a huge office park in his town."
LYNCH said his sidekick, TACO BOB, told the mayor (THOM GREENE) "he loved him in 'FREDDY GOT FINGERED.'"
As of this morning, the mayor has yet to file an official grievance and LYNCH hasn't been approached by the outdoor company which, of course, is CLEAR CHANNEL.
