Professor Says KXT DJs, “Robots”, “Mechanicals”

Local Professor Says KXT DJs, “Robots”, “Mechanicals”

Local university professor of media, Dr. Nofakusheir, told a representative of zine Musea that he knows for a fact that all the DJs on KXT-fm are robots, mechanical voices.

Here is our interview”

Musea: Why do you say KXT DJs are robots?

Dr Nofakusheir: Four reasons:

1. Fake names – Alan Roberts? Why not Smith and Jones. Generic names, or two first names put together, fit generic machines. Real people have names that are unusual or hard to pronounce.

2 Fake voices – No humans lack all personality. These can’t be humans – these have to be manufactured. No real person has lived twenty years or more without developing some human characteristics.”

3. Show me the pictures. No one has ever SEEN a KXT DJ in person. Where do they live, in Digital Valley?

4. They say they are AAA format. Do you know what that stands for All Automaton Audio.

Musea: What if they are real? They show DJ photos on the website.

Dr Nofakusheir: These white bread generic models are strictly manufactured photos. Obviously these are doctored pix taken from some face recognition tech article or some robot how-to magazine.

But on the slim chance that these are REAL people, we have a bigger problem. The ‘person’ higher up, claiming to program the DJs to talk in such a bland generic way has to be itself a robot. No human has yet devised a way to wipe all personality out of a human being. That stretches credibility.

Musea: The follow, follow up question is this; did real people manufacture these higher higher ups, or did other machines? If other machines, where does this mechanical web end?

Dr Nofakusheir: Yes it’s turtles all the way down! And if machines did NOT hire them, and the DJs are not machines; then I ask this, why would any real humans play music so bland and generic, unless they too were programable automatons.

Further, no human with real personality and even a smattering of skill in music would ever RECORD this pretend music. (Note KXT refers to this pretend music as tracts, not music! Proof in the terms used!) No human with real personality would release such bland music unless under the pressure of all powerful despicable robotic overlords. No musician would allow his name to be used in such a disgraceful way!

Summing up, that means if the DJs are not fake machines, then it has to be the staff that are the machines programming the DJs. And that is why they only allow robotic generic music.

Musea: We have contacted KXT to deny or confirm the professors theory, but as yet cannot get beyond the mechanical digital phone and website menus.


TeXas Video Showdown and KERA

October 24, 2017

Musea Readers know that I have my problems with both NPR and local stations KERA and KXT for their lack of support for artists.

So I was surprised, when googling my name to find this posted in April of 2015 on the KERA Art and Seek site.

I had sent them a story and link feeling that they would never do anything about it.

Take a look, and know that the TeXas Video Showdown, worst video ever made… on purpose, is still going strong with thousands of hits.

When you go to the link, note that there is a place to add comments. Please do if you would like to support the cause.

Now when I criticize their coverage I have to change, “never covered” to” that one time!”

Letter to Mary Anne Alhadeff

To Mary Anne Alhadeff
President and CEO of North Texas Public Broadcasting.

Will not support KERA or KXT. Will ask my readers to not support them too.

For 25 years you have gone out of your way to block all the news and progressive ideas and innovative artists of every kind from Dallas, Texas, and across the country.

You have blocked news of the issues covered by the Dallas zine Musea, a publication in print and online about the arts and media since 1992.

You have blocked the thousands of Dallas musicians, painters, filmmakers, writers, we have supported.

You have blocked the media innovations we have advocated.

You have blocked the progressive ideas we have printed about in the arts and media in Dallas, and across the country.

You have blocked coverage of most serious arts and media issues.

This link is 200 pages of other reasons, in this history of Dallas art and media since 1992.

MUSEA will not support KERA (or KXT)

The Dallas zine Musea (monthly since 1992) cannot support KERA. We also advocate our readers not to support KERA, and we advocate that the rest of Dallas not support KERA.

For all of the last 25 years:

KERA has not reported on or supported the local and national musicians, painters, writers, filmmakers, photographers, etc.; talked about in Musea.

KERA has not reported on the ideas and solutions suggested from Musea to help all artists of all kinds here and across the country.

KERA has not reported on the ideas and solutions suggested from Musea to help make the media in Dallas better.

KERA has not reported on the ideas and solutions suggested from Musea to help make Dallas a better city.

KERA has gone out of their way to not support anything Musea talked about in 200 issues.
