rich r banned songs (140* d) RE: banned songs 06 Jan 99


Pete Seeger relates that his version of "Waist Deep In The Big Muddy" was actually taped for the Smothers Bros. show, but deleted between taping and air time without telling Pete or the Smothers'. The edit wasn't even very smooth, one moment Pete was standing there with a guitar, the next moment a banjo (or vice vers). The Chad Mitchell Trio had the knack of repeatedly recording songs that the radio stations wouldn't play, beginning with "The John Birch Society" and including "Barry's Boys". Satirical and/or political songs were generally excluded from radio at the time (except maybe "Okie from Muskogee" and God Bless the USA). The Kingston Trio remained popular mostly by avoiding such material except the infamous "d" word.
