REPORT: Backlash as more radio stations ban “Baby, It’s Cold Outside”

Following the lead of several other radio stations in the United States and Canada, Bay Area radio station KOIT said it was banning the holiday staple “Baby, It’s Cold Outside,” CBS station KPIX reports. Many listeners have said the song heard on countless holiday playlists is inappropriate in the #MeToo era – but others are outraged the classic tune has been taken off the air.
Penned by “Guys and Dolls” writer Frank Loesser in 1944, the song’s lyrics describe a woman trying extricate herself from a date and saying “no, no, no,” while a man insists that she stays as he moves in closer, pours her more alcohol, and warns about the weather outside. Critics of the song say the lyrics promote date rape.
The article goes on to state the following:
“I made the decision, it’s off for now,” Brian Figula, program manager at KOIT radio told KPIX, adding that he is considering leaving the ultimate decision up to the people.
