WFCF (88.5 FM) is a radio station broadcasting an eclectic college radio format. Licensed to St. Augustine, Florida, U.S.A.. The station is owned by Flagler College.[1] The F.C.C. originally issued the WFCF callsign on November 5, 1992.[2] As a format, WFCF airs multiple forms of music and speech.

Controversy[edit]

In 2007 the station became embroiled in controversy when the artist Caeser Pink & The Imperial Orgy accused the WFCF of censoring free speech when the station banned the artist's CD titled "All God's Children". WFCF Music director Amber Kain told the group's record label that the station would not play the CD because "We don't want to subject our listeners to a group that portrays Mickey (mouse) as a Nazi." The CD's cover featured a cartoon rendering of Mickey Mouse with a Hitler mustache and red arm band.[3] Caeser Pink claimed the image was a reference to a song titled "Mickey Mouse World". The song's lyrics accused media corporations such as Disney of using the media to dumb down American culture by broadcasting content that promotes shallow and materialist values.
