Inetta "The Moodsetta" Hinton

On-Air Resignation from WBLX Radio, Mobile, Alabama

delivered 12 August 2006


[AUTHENTICITY CERTIFIED: Text version below transcribed directly from audio]

The big station 93BLX: It is the Gulf Coast number 1 for hip hop and R&B and now with Ray Ray and Myronda the home team in the morning. "Do It To It" -- what better song to do it to it.

It's Inetta the Moodsetta and I told you I had a very important announcement and here it is: I refuse, I refuse to walk around and watch people on my job lookin' over my shoulder. People lyin' to me. People talkin' about me. It's ridiculous. It is sad. I can't take it. I'm not gonna to take it. I don't have to take it. I'm not a dummy.

I know how to find another job but I refuse to walk around -- people, you can say what you want to say about me and if you see me on the street I'll let you know whatever you want to know -- but I refuse.

For the last six years, I made six dollars an hour. That ain't nothin'. I just got a raise after six years. I know I'm qualified and after saying this I don't care if I ever get another job in radio, period.

It does not matter to me but Inetta will not be settin' the mood at 'BLX no more.

I refuse to walk around with people that'll speak to you, "Hey, Inetta, how you doin'?" But then soon as you walk by, "That b---h."

I will not do it to myself any more. If you confused about what I'm saying, listen very carefully: I quit this b---h.
