Offensive Content Policies.

 

Stuart’s Vintage Radio Broadcasting is an international public broadcaster. We recognise that some songs in our collection are not suitable for Broadcasting to an international Audience. To this end we take steps to ensure all content offends the fewest number of people possible according to these published guidelines.

-Content that promotes cruelty or gratuitous violence towards animals

-Content that may be interpreted as trading in, or selling products derived from, threatened or extinct species

 

Obscene Content

 

For content to be ruled obscene, it must meet a three-pronged test established by the Supreme Court: It must appeal to an average person's prurient interest; depict or describe sexual conduct in a "patently offensive" way; and, taken as a whole, lack serious literary, artistic, political or scientific value.

 

Broadcasting obscene content is prohibited at all times of the day.

 

Complaints

 

When filing a complaint, please include the following information:

-Date and time of the broadcast.

-Details of what was actually said or depicted during the broadcast.

 

Detailed complaints are helpful for analysing the context of offensive language, images or scenes and determining possible rule violations. It is also helpful (but not a requirement) to include a recording or transcript of a broadcast when possible. Should a complaint found to be warranted the offending will be handled in accordance to our policies listed in actions taken. We will NOT communicate our reasoning for our decisions nor will we apologise for our decisions. We can not fix the 1970’s it is 2019 after all.

Complaints may be sent to admin@stuartsvintageradiostation.com

Actions taken.

 

-We do not bleep or edit out content that violates our guidelines. If a song is deemed to violate our content guidelines we do not play the entire song. During feature album series albums containing  songs that violate these guidelines will not be featured.

-We script and record all speaking and voiced content and edit out and/or rerecord voice portions to remove any content violating these guidelines and to maintain voice continuity as though the content was never spoken.
