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

It's The Most Controversial Time Of The Year...For 'Baby, It's Cold Outside,' At Least

She said the song has no correlation to date rape or any reasons why it was probably shelved at one radio station.

'Absolutely I get it, ' she said.

Rather than just relegating her comment to the recesses of my mind while driving, I consciously started listening to it more intensely - and came to the realization that the lyrics were, in fact, those of a date rape song.

She noted that she's particularly aggravated about the backlash because "it's a song my father wrote for him and my mother to sing at parties". "I think you have to look at the intent of the song and when you look at the intent, to me, it's a very flirtatious back-and-forth between the two of them". "I know I'm going to get hammered for this, so let's just move along please!"

"I don't usually agree with you Gayle King but, you hit the nail on the head this morning".

"Before we played the song Baby it's Cold Outside, but you said this song doesn't fit us anymore".

It's a debate that's reignited every year as the calendars flip to November and the temperatures grow frostier: Is "Baby, It's Cold Outside" good, or bad? This song being banned is too far reaching.

KOSI 101.1 in Colorado, marketed as "Denver's Holiday Station", originally pulled the song due to listener complaints but has since reversed its decision.

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. Other lyrics like "say, what's in this drink?" have also raised eyebrows.

"This song is not about an abuse of power, it is about flirtation and that is how flirtation was in those days", Susan said, adding that she doesn't want the song connected to the #MeToo movement.
