Clear Channel didn't ban any songs, but it encouraged station programmers to think long and hard before playing such songs as "Burning Down The House" by Talking Heads, "Highway To Hell" by AC/DC and "America" by Neil Diamond.
When there are 3,000 dead people in the rubble of New York City, hearing The Chi-Lites' "Have You Seen Her" might be in bad taste, according to Clear Channel.
But when there could be as many as 10,000 dead people in the rubble of New Orleans, all taste bets are off.
Thom fills us in:
About ten minutes ago I was treated to another of Alice's ridiculous "Tune in to our morning show because we are going to help those poor people in New Orleans" promos which was then followed by the classic Zep tune: "When the Levee Breaks."
I know plenty of dead baby jokes and even I felt that tune was a bit insensitive. Now, draw you're own conclusions about the racial makeup of the victims and audience shares between the two events; tinfoil is optional.
