Dr John banned songs (140* d) RE: banned songs 06 Jan 99


Lord MacCartney of Liverpool (oops I anticipate) 's song about Ireland was played on a BBC program on protest songs a few years ago, in more enlightened times. Naive and poor: not worth listening too. The Beeb was very curious in those far off days. Lonnie Donegan had "Nobody Loves Like An Irishman" banned because he refered to the Koran and the Beeb thought that might offend those of an Islamic persuation. Anticipation of Mr Rushtie perhaps!! L.D. later turning the rollicking "Take a Whiff On Me" into a mild "Have a Drink On Me", perhaps as a result.
