Radio Station Refuses To Play 1944 Christmas Classic

A radio station in Ohio removed the 1944 Christmas classic “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” from its song playlist. Star 102 Cleveland, the station which removed the song, released in a statement that the lyrics are “very manipulative and wrong,”.

A few lines in the song which are traditionally sung by a woman – “Say, what’s in this drink?” and “the answer is no” — were the lyrics sited for controversy.

The station stated that the song was written in a “different time,” adding the #MeToo movement was the reason it removed the song.

“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,” the radio station added.

WDOK-FM midday host Glenn Anderson also chimed in on the decision saying he recognizes that society was different when the song was written back in 1944, and says that he does not think the song has a place in the world today in the era of the #MeToo movement against sexual harassment.
