WHY BAN ONE CHRISTMAS SONG AND NOT ANOTHER? a radio station in Cleveland says it has banned the holiday favorite song, Baby, It's Cold Outside because, it says, it has received complaints about the song in light of the so-called #MeToo movement. But is that the only potentially "offensive" Christmas song? Listen and decide for yourself!

Here is an article Tom used to prepare for this episode: 'Baby It's Cold Outside' pulled from Cleveland radio station amid #MeToo movement.

Baby, It's Cold Outside first appeared in the 1949 MGM film Neptune's Daughter where it was performed by two couples, one played by Esther Williams and Ricardo Montalbán, and the other played by Betty Garrett and, of all people, comedian Red Skelton, and in their version, the roles of the predator and the pressured are reversed! This song won the Academy Award for Best Song in 1949. Take a look at the original movie clip and pay attention to the lyrics as well.

On the other hand, Santa Baby was originally recorded by Eartha Kitt with Henri René and his orchestra in July 1953. Take a listen to the song and its lyrics here. If Baby, It's Cold Outside should be banned from being played on radio, shouldn't Santa Baby also be banned?
