A Cambridge man has been charged in connection with a series of allegedly obscene phone calls he made to Boston sports radio station WEEI late last year, according to Suffolk County District Attorney Daniel F. Conley.

David Banner, 57, faces two counts of criminal harassment, two counts of threats to commit a crime, and count of — no joke — making annoying phone calls.

He was released on $1,000 personal recognizance with orders not to call any radio station in Boston.

So, New York stations watch out.

According to authorities, Banner actually used his real name in some of the calls he made to WEEI between October and November.

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

Sage like advice.
