Bill Cosby Blamed For "Baby It's Cold Outside" Radio Ban

Several radio stations in North America have stopped playing the holiday classic'Baby It’s Cold Outside following complaints about its lyrics

"I just think it's a light, flirtatious song".

Loesser said she was upset about the furore because "it's a song my father wrote for him and my mother to sing at parties".

Since then, Canadian broadcasters Bell Media, CBC Radio and Rogers Media have also made a decision to drop the song this year. Now, KOIT is letting listeners decide whether to bring "Baby, It's Cold Outside" back, and the poll is running 90 percent in the song's favor.

Because wind gusts can trick the seismometer, the lander is equipped with an air pressure sensor to isolate that background noise. On Friday, NASA released audio of the Martian wind, the first time sound has been recorded on another planet's surface.

"Still, deejays are hesitant to play the song."I didn't understand why the lyrics were so bad", said Glenn Anderson from Cleveland's Star 102 radio, "... until I read them".

Though some say it eerily relates to Bill Cosby drugging women's drinks, Susan Loesser said the time frame of the song's text is more geared for those in the 1940's and 50's. "I think my father would be furious at that", she told NBC News.

"We are losing our sense of humor nowadays", King added. "I know I'm going to get hammered for this, so let's just move along please!" "Keep Baby it's Cold Outside in the air!" tweeted another. This song being banned is too far reaching.

The daughter of the man who wrote the Christmas song "Baby, It's Cold Outside", said the social justice warriors attacking the song are totally wrong and that the song has no correlation to date rape or any reasons why it should be cut by a radio station.

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. "People used to say "what's in this drink" as a joke".
