WHAT IS IT ABOUT THE RADIO INDUSTRY THAT ATTRACTS PAEDOPHILES?
Talk Radio Europe(EXPATS ENGLISH SPEAKING RADIO STATION IN SPAIN) has had its fair share of them. one being in jail at this moment of time for sexual abuse of children, I think his sentence, is for 20 years a heavy duty paedophile. Then there is the sex and grooming scandal of a16-year-old girl perfectly legal BUT IN THE OPINION OF MANY NOT MORALLY LEGAL enough said on that one. And now we have bill Padley openly admitting that he is a friend of sandy beech which he is entitled to be, it is not illegal to be friends with a paedophile, but the shit rubs off and people make assumptions on what company we keep. still, talk radio Europe boss must know what he is doing I thought their image that they want to project is one of a wholesome family radio station.
