S.F. radio station afraid of gay ads

8guysoutA gay dating service has trouble getting its ads on the radio in San Francisco? Yes, apparently it’s happened. The service, called 8 Guys Out, sends clients to upscale dinners with groups of men, but can’t send its ads to KDFC-FM, a classical-music station in San Francisco. The station evidently got fed up after receiving complaints when it ran ads promoting the Bravo TV show Boy Meets Boy.

The company has also had problems getting its ads on the air in Los Angeles. It has had no problems in New York.
