Thread Name: Banned Music?
Subject: RE: Banned Music?
Unfortunately I have no details, but back when Reggae was new, a Bahamian friend of mine said that most of his record collection was banned from the radio in the west indies because of the political content. The jazz standard "Love For Sale" was, for many years, effectively BARRED from radio because the song is about prostitution. I can also verify the April Stevens comment above. When her record came out, it was officially destroyed on air at the local station.
