Thread Name: Banned Music?
Subject: RE: Banned Music?
According to the PBS Special I saw (at least ten years ago) "Buddy Can You Spare A Dime" was banned nationwide from radio play by presidential request because it was seen as detrimental to the nation's self confidence. By the time it was banned it was popular which is why it attracted attention. The "suicide" rock songs were banned by various radio stations - nothing official.
