‘Baby, It’s Cold Out­side’ yanked from ra­dio sta­tion

Houston Chronicle Sunday - - NATION | WORLD -

CLEVE­LAND — A Cleve­land ra­dio sta­tion says it has stopped play­ing “Baby, It’s Cold Out­side” af­ter lis­ten­ers said the song heard on count­less hol­i­day playlists is in­ap­pro­pri­ate.

They’re not the first to ques­tion the song’s un­der­tones, which in­clude lyrics like “What’s in this drink?” and “Baby, don’t hold out.”

WDOK-FM mid­day host Glenn An­der­son says he rec­og­nizes that so­ci­ety was dif­fer­ent when the song was writ­ten in 1944, but he doesn’t think it has a place to­day in the era of the #MeToo move­ment against sex­ual ha­rass­ment.
