WASHINGTON — Explicit interviews with porn stars Dave Cummings and Ron Jeremy will cost a Kansas radio operator $220,000 in indecency fines, the Federal Communications Commission said Wednesday.

Federal regulators say the “Dare and Murphy Show” on stations KQRC-FM in Westwood, Kan., and KFH-AM in Wichita, Kan., also broadcast a “Naked Twister” game with local strippers that they deemed offensive.

The FCC cited four broadcasts during April and May of 2002 in their findings.

Both stations are owned by Bala Cynwyd, Pa.-based Entercom Communications Corp., which can appeal the decision.

Federal law bars radio and non-cable television stations from airing references to sexual and excretory functions between 6 a.m. and 10 p.m.

Regulators said that a conversation with Cumming included phrases that have “unmistakable sexual import,” including such terms as “money shot” and “doing” women.

“We have found similar material to be indecent or apparently indecent,” the commission wrote in their decision on the Cummings interview. “ There is no reasonable nonsexual interpretation to such phrases as ‘anal contest’ and ‘please take that out of my ass.’”

In the Jeremy interview, the commission cited a discussion where the hosts and Jeremy discuss a movie in which he had sex with an obese woman.

Jeremy said that “if a guy is doing a girl that’s that big, anywhere you go, it goes in.” He went on to say, “I think I had sex with a fold for half an hour,” and “I don’t think I ever got to genitalia.”

FCC commissioners said the “Naked Twister” broadcast dwelled on descriptions of female genitalia and breasts in an explicit and graphic manner, including “[s]he’s got the little mohawk downstairs”; “she’s apparently undergoing chemotherapy below…[t]hat means her hair is gone”; and “[y]ou’ve got a little tattoo over your vagina.”

The agency proposed a $27,500 fine for each of the four broadcasts by the two stations for a total penalty of $220,000.
