No to political correctness: Radio Station plays ‘Baby it’s Cold Outside’ on repeat in protest of ban

A US radio station has put up a firm stance against recent public opinion by playing the controversial Christmas song ‘Baby it’s Cold Outside’ on repeat during a two hour show last weekend.

According to reports in the US, the station that has seemingly defied public WKAY 103.5FM played five different covers of the classic song during a two hour show on Sunday morning.

The song which has drawn criticism in recent weeks over its questionable lyrics was apparently played by the station as management at the Kentucky based broadcaster claimed there was nothing wrong with its lyrics.

It is reported that the song made famous by Frank Loesser in 1944, got repeat exposure during the show’s airtime from 8am and 10am on Sunday morning.

Defending its repeated playing WKAY said there was nothing wrong with the song and it was simply a song of a different era.

The station also said in a Facebook post that they like the song which is older than the station itself and they will continue to play it as they are not affraid to play it.

The song which has been given pretty much a blanket ban in the US, has been heavily criticised as its lyrics are alleged to insinuate manipulative and controlling behaviour towards women.
