Benjamin Bodhránaí banned songs (140* d) RE: banned songs 24 Jan 99


Hi all!

We have a government youth station here in Oz that delights in being anti-establishment, TripleJ-FM. Anyway, one of it's programs, The J-Files, delves into a different theme each week, whether genre, artist, time period, or whatever. Last year they had one on banned songs, and manageed to fill a three hour show with songs and info, albeit the songs weren't folk, rather post 1960 stuff, pop and rock etc. But Richard Kingsmill the presenter said he really wanted to do so he could play "I bet you they won't play this song on the Radio" by the Monty Python team as the theme.

JJJ also had a court injunction taken out against it for playing a satirical piece referring to a rightwing political party leader here. The piece was called "I'm a backdoor Man" by Pauline Pantsdown, in satire of Pauline Hanson leader of OneNation. Quitesurrising as JJJ will usually play anything, but will also obey the law I 'spose.

Back to "Transfusion" I heard this on a public access radio here in South Oz, 3D radio on a program called "Yodel Action"
