Another radio station pulls 'Baby It's Cold Outside' from the airwaves

  • Several radio stations in North America have stopped playing the holiday classic'Baby It’s Cold Outside following complaints about its lyrics

According to our partners at WISC-TV, Mid-West Family Broadcasting Program Director Fletcher Keyes said he took all versions of "Baby It's Cold Outside" out of rotation on Hank AM 1550 and 97.7 FM Monday. 'But I think it would be good if people looked at the song in the context of the time.

CBS This Morning aired a segment Thursday about how the classic tune, written in 1944, continues to get banned from radio stations because of lyrics some listeners feel make light of a coercive situation.

Some have commented on the fact that when it was written (for a 1949 romantic comedy, Neptune's Daughter, starring Red Skelton, Esther Williams and Ricardo Montalban), it was a trite piece of fluff that has been covered and popularized by every noteworthy singer since.

"Not me. So, we just have to agree to disagree", King responded.

"It is not a date rape song, it is a flirtatious song". "I'm so irritated by this!"

"I know I'm gonna get hammered for this", she predicted, "so let's just move along, please".

"We are losing our sense of humor nowadays", King added. "The Me Too movement is important and real. What is next burning books?"

Star 102 Cleveland in Ohio, USA was the first to stop playing the Academy Award-winning song, with local media reporting "that listeners said the song was inappropriate and at odds with the #MeToo movement", BBC reported on 1 December 2018. A poll on the WDOK Facebook page Wednesday showed overwhelming support to bring the song back. Other lyrics like "say, what's in this drink?" have also raised eyebrows.

CBS This Morning co-host Gayle King, who described herself as a "big supporter and proponent of the Me Too movement", said Thursday that she was anxious about a nation losing its sense of humor.
