This #MeToo-era-cum-yuletide-season, radio stations are pulling the plug on that holiday earworm with lyrics that, to some, ring date-rape warning bells, rather than evoking innocent snow-bound flirtation.

The tune “Baby, It’s Cold Outside,” with words that seemed charming when FDR was in office, may land with a tone-deaf thud on the ear of today’s listener.

But the stations banning the song have been met with a controversy of their own.

Cleveland’s WDOK put its foot down where the female voice could not, announcing its ban of the song last week.

“I do realize that when the song was written in 1944, it was a different time, but now while reading it, it seems very manipulative and wrong,” host Glenn Anderson wrote on the station’s web site. “The world we live in is extra sensitive now, and people get easily offended, but in a world where #MeToo has finally given women the voice they deserve, the song has no place.”

Brian Figula, program director of KOIT saw the headlines and determined the song would have no place at his San Francisco station. He banned it on Monday…..

 [MEMO TO LIBERALS: I would be distressed if you don’t like this old Crosby tune. You know, a traditional, Christmas memory some still enjoy. However, possibly, if you tried sitting bare-assed on a sharply split rail, could that maybe make you happier? 

…Love, and Feliz Navidad, from Jeffrey.]

About Jeffrey A. Friedberg, A VIEW FROM THE STREET: Quick, impolite, and to the point.... 362 Articles
A VIEW FROM THE STREET: Does 80 year old, ex-Private Eye, Jeff Friedberg, want to be described as, "a serious observer," a "respectable, civil cataloger of the times," one who should be quoted and spoken of reverently as a competent gatherer of polite, intelligent opinion? 'No, godammit. Because, I'M OLD ENOUGH TO REMEMBER THE REAL AMERICA. I want to get a Message out---past the commie bastard liars infesting the corrupt MSM and political ruling class. To me, the era of polite chit-chat is over—so I might not be polite. Yet, I am still constrained to be, non-offensive, by which only Conservatives seem constrained. BEWARE of democrat ("magical") distractions and red herrings! '"

  1. It’s moments like this that I wish I lived downtown Brooklyn, the mecca (yes I said mecca) of dueling mosques, political Islam and Communists, mostly the LGBTQWY, NYU, ACLU yada, yada, yada type. I’d play that song volume on high every hour on the hour straight through to the New Year. Of course, for full effect, doing so would require a speaker and sound system like that of the dueling mosques who send their call to prayer out over a sound system that could be heard for miles on end 24/7 every hour of the day.

  2. Yes, and it seems they WILL dominate the World as soon as they get the chance. Except it won’t work in America, unless their apparent commie democrat hench-lunatics get the snuG away :)

    Oh…New York is not actually America, anymore, so they appear to rule there auditorily and politically at present :)

    * I lived undercover (used another name and background) in a walkup in New York near the GW Bridge for a year.
