This morning I got a reply from the radio station in question:
I'm glad that some good has come from it :)

Thank you for your feedback regarding the May 28th and June 3rd, 2009 broadcasts of "The Rob, Arnie and Dawn Show." I understand the seriousness of the issue, and want to share with you a copy of a notice that has been posted on our website, www.krxq.net.

During these shows, Rob and Arnie made what we, and they, recognize were completely unacceptable remarks concerning members of the transgender community, especially children. Accordingly, this Thursday, June 11th, 2009, the show will be dedicated to what we anticipate will be a forum to promote a better understanding among all listeners of the issues involved.

Nice. Well, it's a start anyway.

You did hear that they lost some MAJOR sponsors, right? That's good shit too.

Hugs, honey...

Yes, it certainly is some fantastic shit! Wish I was in the U.S. so I could support those sponsors!
I wasn't expecting such a positive outcome - it's very heartening!
Yeeee! xx

We helped make a difference. Thanks for getting the word out, Ursy. I got the same response. That's at least two reckless fools who will shut the fuck up, whether they learned something or not. :)

I hope they *did* learn something :)

But whether they did or not, I'm glad that they're going to have the forum. What a great outcome!

I hope that I will be able to hear the show through the magic of the internets...

Me too - I wasn't expecting much from them given the extreme ignorance they displayed, but I was pleasantly surprised!
