Banned By The BBC!

Ah yes,  BBC radio, they only people on earth to ban  “Ding dong The Witch Is Dead”. How could they do it? Well, with ease actually. BBC Radio have a history of censorship from “Lola” to “Hi Hi Hi” to all points inbetween, this government owned and operated not for profit, PBS on steroids, outfit, don’t like being  messed with.

Essentially, songs are banned for only sex and politics, sometimes drug references are thrown in for good measure. And back in the day? No flippant references to God, indeed, no references at all if you please.

Our crackerjack team of fact checkers have been working day and night cut and pasting this list off Wikipedia. The comments are mostly my own when I choose to make em.

"A-huggin' and A-chalkin'" – Johnny Mercer (1946)
