There was one song I used to listen to on WRKO...by England Dan and John
Ford-Coley: "I'd really love to see you tonight"
When RKO started playing it....the words "I'm not talking 'bout movin' in"
were blurred out using whatever method they used at the time (reversing the
peice of tape?).
After awhile...the words suddenly appeared on the air!
Looking back, it's hard to imagine someone at RKO thought this was going to
be offensive in 1976.
