WHAT? Cambridge man charged with threatening radio station employees

Prosecutors recommended that he be held on $5,000 cash bail; he was released on $1,000 personal recognizance with orders to have no contact with any of the victims and not to call any radio station in Boston.

Banner allegedly identified himself in some calls to the station. He is currently charged in connection with four calls made between October and November. Each was recorded.

Å“If someone finds a radio that upsetting, the appropriate response is to change the channel,  Conley said. Å“Instead, we have here a pattern of extremely vulgar and , frankly, bizarre phone calls that rise to the level of criminal behavior. 

In an Oct. 29 call that began with an expression of displeasure over his perception of the stationâ„¢s politics, Banner allegedly stated, Å“And another thing, the [Employee #1] laughs in somebodyâ„¢s face with his snide snickering , Iâ„¢m gonna come in there and kick his [expletive] teeth in. And then Iâ„¢m gonna look for you and kick your [expletive] teeth, you [expletive] ¦. And you can tell [Employee #2] when he makes fun of to look in the [expletive] [expletive] mirror. [Expletive] you. 

In an Oct. 30 call, he allegedly said, Å“Shut [Employee #1] up ¦. You sleazy, dirty [expletive] [expletive] [expletive]. 
