KFYE-FM in Fresno was jamming Christian music, broadcasting sermons, and sharing Bible stories until about a week ago.

Then came a radical format change.

Now it’s "Porn Radio — all sex radio, all the time." No joke. They actually switched from Christian broadcasting to pump and grind, suggesting people under 21 not listen because of the sexual nature of the content. What exactly is porno radio? Basically, it's little more than songs with suggestive titles, such as "Why Don't We Do It in the Road" by The Beatles, "Sexual Healing" by Marvin Gaye, and "Nasty" by Janet Jackson. And if the song isn't porno enough, they'll spice it up with recorded moans and groans. Nice.

Imagine the poor sap tuning in for an inspirational lift and hearing “Oh God!”

That's a religious experience of a different kind.
