Rare & Scratchy Rock ‘N Roll

R&SRNR Podcast 008: "Banned Ballads, Risque Records, & Profane Platters"

This episode uncovers some risque records and profane platters that were widely heard on the radio over the past 60 years or so.

Most of them are still played now on oldies and classic rock stations. But many have been edited for airplay and others just banned. Some dirty ditties just slipped by, and no one knows why. 

These range from songs with curse and swear words to songs with conjugal content….and believe it or not, one record that was partially banned because it mentioned a popular candy bar.

There’s more than meets the ear when you listen to rock on the radio, and you’ll hear an earful all night here.

Note: Some of these songs contain profanity and/or "adult content," so please download and listen responsibly.
