Owens' music protests Bernie gag order

The person who picks the music bumpers for Ronn Owens' 9-noon show on KGO 810 has a sense of humor. Owens (pictured) got back from vacation yesterday and was on the air for the first time since fellow KGO host Bernie Ward was indicted on child pornography charges. Owens began his show by briefly mentioning the station's policy forbidding its hosts and callers from discussing the case for legal reasons. Owens said he disagreed with the policy but would follow it. Then, after the next break, the bumper was "Our Lips Are Sealed" by the Go Gos. After that it was:
    • Gwen Stefani's "Don't speak. I know what you're saying. So please stop explaining. Don't tell me because it hurts."

    • Simon and Garfunkel's "The Sounds of Silence."

    • Cliff Richard's "It's so funny how we don't talk anymore. It's so funny why we don't talk anymore."

    • Bonnie Raitt's "Let's give them something to talk about."
Later on, Owens credited the music selection to engineer Chris Hernandez and producer Mark Silverman.
