A sex therapist and retired nurse must supply KSYM with four episodes to review.

A 30-minute weekly sex education show may be coming to the airwaves.
The show likely would be called “Night Moves,” said KSYM DJ Ann ”Red Rock” Hardee, the moving force behind the show.
Hardee, a retired registered nurse and radio-television-broadcasting sophomore, would host the show with certified sex therapist Cay Crow and “regular guy” Victor “Mission Man” Martinez, a math sophomore at St. Philip’s College.
Hardee has been the host of “All Stars Breakfast,” which airs 7 a.m.-9 a.m. Sunday, for two years. Each week, she spins music from 1965-1975 by a single artist.
Before “Night Moves” can air, the hosts are required to record four shows, which must be approved by KSYM adviser John Onderdonk, radio-television-film professor.
“Night Moves” would be divided into three segments — a presentation of information, a guest and then a question-and-answer session.
Questions would be accepted via email. The show will be archived and available on Mix Cloud.
The first recorded show will be submitted to Onderdonk today.
She said if the four recorded shows are approved, those will air first and then the show will be aired live with questions accepted by email.
Onderdonk declined to comment on the radio show in a phone conversation with The Ranger, but Hardee said he wants to make sure the content adheres to regulations of the Federal Communications Commission.
Hardee is enjoying recording the shows with her fellow hosts and believes it has created chemistry among them.
Crow, who teaches human sexuality and psychology courses as an adjunct at this college, said research shows the more information given to adolescents about sex, the more responsible they will be toward sex.
Martinez will provide a male’s perspective and help break up the clinical talk, Hardee said.
Crow and Hardee wanted a “regular guy” to co-host with them, Hardee said.
KSYM DJ James “ Hot Mustard” Velten was originally going to co-host but became too busy after taking the job of program director.
Hardee took it upon herself to find a co-host.
She tried the kinesiology department and the veterans affairs office where she met Martinez.
Hardee approached him, introduced herself and told him about her show idea.
Martinez, a KSYM listener, was comfortable with the topic.
She said he once gave a speech about how to have better sex in a speech class at St. Mary’s University.
As a nurse, Hardee worked with patients who suffered from erectile dysfunction.
According to the Mayo Clinic, erectile dysfunction occurs when a man can no longer get or keep an erection firm enough for sexual intercourse.
The doctors she worked with were uncomfortable talking to their patients about sex and left the job to Hardee.
“After doing it over the years, I learned that patients will never raise their hand and ask, ‘May I ask a sex question?’ The practitioner has to bring it up,” Hardee said.
“I also learned that using humor, you can talk to them about very sensitive things. If they are laughing the whole time, they don’t even realize they are getting instruction.”
