Local Radio DJ Hangs Out for a Good Cause

For the next seven days, if Keke Luv has to use the bathroom, he'll have to use a bucket—a bucket inside a little glass box 25 feet above the intersection of Ninth and Front streets.

He'll also be broadcasting live on 103.3 KISS FM.

"It's not just a remote setup," said Lucky, 103.3 FM's assistant program director. "He has total control of the station right now. Our whole studio is up there."

Luv, KISS FM's program director, is doing Live for 175 (the number of hours in a row he will be on air), another in his series of annual feats intended to raise awareness of child abuse. Last year, he broadcast for eight days. The year before that, he ran seven marathons in seven days. The year before that, he broadcast for seven days without sleep.

On Thursday, April 14, at 9 p.m., KISS FM will host a candlelight vigil for the victims of childhood abuse. Information about abuse will be handed out at the site, and the KISS FM hot-air balloon will be on hand.

Marcia Brothers, an officer of the Idaho Child Abuse Prevention Coalition, wants people to be very clear about something.

"It's not a shenanigan," she says.

"The point is that one person can do something insanely stupid and get people thinking about something," said Josh Cenker, a KISS FM promotions tech.

Those lacking cars or curious about what happens in a glass box at 3 a.m. can check out the station's live video stream. But for any commuters concerned about the view, don't worry. When it's "bucket time," Luv will have a privacy curtain.

"We'd like to avoid any tickets for public nudity," said Brothers.
