RA­DIO bosses are set to AXE Michael Jack­son songs from their playlists as more ev­i­dence about this non­cery emerges.

Jacko was run­ning “the most so­phis­ti­cated” child sex abuse op­er­a­tion “the world has known”, ac­cord­ing to le­gal pa­pers.

It is also be­lieved the King of Pop was abus­ing kids “un­til the day he died” and has “many more” vic­tims out there, a lawyer for Jack­son ac­cusers Wade Rob­son, 36, and James Safechuck, 40, claims.

It comes fol­low­ing af­ter the bomb­shell doc­u­men­tary Leav­ing Nev­er­land fea­tur­ing the pair’s hor­ri­fy­ing child sex abuse claims against the Bil­lie Jean star, screened at the Sun­dance Film Fes­ti­val.

And now pop ra­dio ex­ecs are hav­ing ur­gent talks to de­cide what to do about Jacko’s mu­sic.

One ra­dio boss said: “When Gary Glit­ter was un­masked as a kiddy-fid­dler his mu­sic dis­ap­peared from the playlists overnight.

“But Jack­son – even though ev­ery sane per­son knows he was an aw­ful pae­dophile – still gets played.

“Af­ter Leav­ing Nev­er­land, things are chang­ing.


“The time is com­ing when all Jacko mu­sic will be taboo.

“The only prob­lem will be his mad fans who are so in­sane they sim­ply can’t ac­cept their idol was a big old nonce who got his kicks touch­ing kids.

“And I tell you what…I would not be at all sur­prised if they start phys­i­cally at­tack­ing any ra­dio sta­tion that moves to ban their hero’s tunes.”

The Thriller singer is also ac­cused of set­ting up two com­pa­nies as a front so he could find, groom and sex­u­ally abuse kids, a 2016 le­gal com­plaint claims.

Aus­tralian dancer Wade de­tails seven years of har­row­ing abuse al­le­ga­tions in the law­suit, orig­i­nally filed un­der seal in Los An­ge­les Su­pe­rior Court in May 2013.
