Seriously, Cleveland's WDOK bans ''Baby, Its Cold Outside'' because some PC pansy is offended??????

Radio: Is the holiday classic ‘Baby, It’s Cold Outside’ inappropriate for 2018?

“We’re letting people who can’t think do our thinking for us.” That was the reaction by Roger of Pacific Palisades when he read on social media that WDOK/Cleveland had pulled the song “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” from the playlist during its around-the-clock holiday music format it currently airs.

A call from a listener stating that the song is inappropriate for 2018 is the reason, according to news reports. A poll on the station’s Facebook page showed that, as of press time, 94 percent of listeners disagree with the decision to pull the song, voting “yes, it’s a classic” to the posted question, “Should we Play ‘Baby it’s Cold Outside’ during the holiday season?”

The tune, released in the 1940s, “really pushes the line of consent,” says Cleveland Rape Crisis Center President and CEO Sondra Miller in a story posted on the WPIX-Television/New York website. Miller said the organization supports the decision to pull the song. Go Country 105 FM played the Dean Martin version on Sunday evening, so it’s not banned in Los Angeles.

10. No. I just found it similar.

I think it's called "honey won't you open that door." By Ricky Skaggs.
My folks are bumpkins so I listened to that shit all my life.. heheh

14. Quite a different song..........

Honey, honey, honey won't you open that door?
This is your sweet daddy, don't you love me no more?
It's cold outside, let me sleep on the floor
Honey won't you open that door?

I honky tonked around Dallas
I got in a poker game
Somebody musta been a cheatin'
I lost everything but my name

Well, I walked halfway to Memphis
I finally got back home
But I'd been better off where I was
'Cause here's where things went wrong

Honey, honey, honey won't you open that door?
This is your sweet daddy, don't you love me no more?
It's cold outside, let me sleep on the floor
Honey, won't you open that door?

I went right down to see old Bob
I thought he was my friend
The landlord said that Bob's not here
The police done hauled him in

I ran right back to little honey's house
I got me a rockin' chair
Now, honey if you don't open that door
I'm gonna rock on away from here

Honey, honey, honey won't you open that door?
This is your sweet daddy, don't you love me no more?
It's cold outside, let me sleep on the floor
Honey won't you open that door?

Honey, honey, honey won't you open that door?
This is your sweet daddy, don't you love me no more?
It's cold outside, let me sleep on the floor
Honey won't you open that door?

Honey, honey
Honey, honey
Now, honey won't you open that door?
