The Swiss get porn radio

Pin it

Oh, you lucky Swiss. As you sit down to your nightly midnight ritual of eating cheese and chocolate, listening to your cuckoo clock as you admire the framed photo of Roger Federer on the wall, you now have some lovely background music to keep you entertained. Namely, radio porn.

As part of the International Radio Festival in Zurich, the radio show, which airs between midnight and five A.M., is producer Oliver Scotoni's attempt to inspire more citizens of Zurich to make love, which "would bring a nice energy to the city," as he told Swiss paper 20 Minuten.

The show is designed as a "countermeasure to the internet porn culture," and features such fare as soundtracks from 1970s porn movies with that badass "wakka-chikka-wakka" guitar, disco classics like Donna Summer's "Love to Love You" and Fabian Hornblower's "Berne, Heidi, Berne" (okay, I made that last one up), and erotically-titled reggae tunes. If they don't play "Dick in a Tweet," that's on them.
