Fate Of ‘Baby It’s Cold Outside’ Being Assessed By Multiple Radio Stations After Song Was Pulled By Ohio Station

Elizabeth Zwirz, Fox News

After an Ohio radio station quit playing “Baby It’s Cold Outside,” other stations in the U.S. have reportedly been tasked with determining the song’s fate in their regions.

Radio stations in Northern California and Colorado have turned to polling their listeners in order to decide what to do, USA Today reported Wednesday.

The fate of the song's playtime comes after Cleveland station WDOK removed the tune after one listener called in and suggested that it’s not appropriate to play the 1940s classic in 2018, Fox 8 reported last week.

“It wasn't really our decision," WDOK host Desiray told the outlet. "It's the decision of our listeners."

Following the removal, San Francisco-based station 96.5 KOIT revealed on their websitethat they too had decided to do away with the song. But the decision sparked an outcry among their listeners to bring it back, they said.

4,000 Years Of Price Control

Tablets, said to be 200 years older than the Babylonian Code of Hammurabi ... show that the ancient kingdom of Eshnunna had wage control and price control. The news ought not to have come as a surprise. For the code of Hammurabi itself (unearthed in 1902), which was promulgated earlier than 2000 B.C., fixed prices, wages, interest rates, and fees. This makes price control at least about 4,000 years old. ...

 

Ironically, it is those who now wish to return to this ancient totalitarian device who are fondest of calling themselves “progressives.” They are also fond of saying that those who believe in economic liberty “are living in the nineteenth century.” These controlists have yet to learn that they themselves are still living, as the discoveries in Babylonia attest, in the nineteenth century—B.C.!
