WMNF in Tampa Florida was shut down for airing music with left wing lyrics. A Florida senator, John Grant claimed that the radio station did not fit the criteria to receive state funding and another public radio station existed in Tampa that aired the same material. Neither of these statements were true. Eventually Grant’s reason for standing against the station changed to that he did not like its programming. Many of the songs objected to are aired in this segment. WMNF has started a fund drive to stay on the air and has received a tremendous response.
