I am a friend of Spider Bui and was at the show in question and did not find any of his broadcast offensive, and I am quite upset at what happened to him.
He did nothing outside of FCC regulations, and god damn, what happened to free speech!?!?!?!?
Please, support Spider and write all you can to as many people you can who can do what needs to be done, BRING SPIDER BACK!!

KSUA DJ circa 2003

Spider Bui was bad. He used to harass us women who worked there, especially if we were young. You guys writing in support of him actually endorsed an abuser who hid in plain sight working as a Planned Parenthood desk attendant and all... you guys defended a monster who happened to feel the same way you do about a bad president. You put us female dj's at risk.
