Radio Station Denies Listener’s Request, He Shows Up With An Axe
I know that in my business, we’re supposed to tell you to “never touch that dial,” but this guy probably should’ve touched that dial.
A man drove to Kiss 108 in Boston on Monday afternoon to request a song in person: “My Axe” by Insane Clown Posse. But, like every single other radio station in the country and the world, they don’t play Insane Clown Posse songs.
When the station wouldn’t play his request, the guy pulled out an axe and some knives, and demanded it.
The SWAT team came and after a three-hour standoff which included the guy fighting through a shot from a Taser, he was arrested without anyone getting hurt.
The police say he’s going to have a psychiatric evaluation.
