96X is a local radio station in Edmonton Canada
Between 9 and 10 am on both October 12th, and 19th, 96X had on their station what they called the "ADHD HOUR." During this hour, they only would play the first 90 seconds of each song, and between the songs they would have short vignettes that devalue people with ADHD through humiliation, embarassement, and slander. Essentially what these vignettes are implying is that people with ADHD are stupid. I am quite distressed that after so much human rights legislation, and work has been done, a main stream radio station thinks it is humerous to discriminate against a minority population and gets away with it.
I challenge you to write a letter to the program manager and submit it through either their web site or through me. I will be sending in massed letters next Wednesday October 26th. And finally, you can help through spreading the word to as many people as you can.
If you have any questions please don't hesitate to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Here is the website for if you choose to write directly to 96X
