Is it okay to say it "wicky"? - KenjiYamada
That's my vote on how to say it. - JackHaskel
I've heard it both ways. - jr
Yeah, wee-kee sounds kind of dorky, even though it's more correct. - MikeIvanov
"wicky" is also the proper Hawaiian pronunciation. - SteveLambert
I actually thought veekee would be the correct Hawaiian, because I had a voice teacher who had taught me Hawaiian songs where w is pronounced as v. —BrentLaabs
One thing that KDVS is very particular about (because it is the law) is not having "calls to action" in PSAs. So be careful when writing a PSA to be very indirect yet informative. You aren't allowed to "sell" someone on the wiki only inform them about the wiki.
So is the revolutionary language bad? How would you rephrase it?
I believe the "calls to action" stuff only applies to sponsorship/underwriting messages - SteveLambert
No, it applies to everything. DJs are not allowed to tell people to do anything or go anywhere, and neither are announcements. However, the main loophole with this is that you have to give them to option to not do it (which is why the DavisWiki PSA has the "if you are interested..." section). - StephenHo

2005-09-07 16:51:39 Is it also playing on KDRT? —JanelleAlvstadMattson
2008-04-12 16:40:12 Finally, a worthwhile PSA! Normally, the PSAs are so ridiculous and unhelpful (like the ones about turbulence or second hand smoking). —CurlyGirl26 watch out, more people get hurt a year in football then turbulence! we need to make a turbulence psa that references things your body is made for! —StevenDaubert
