It was pointed out to me over the weekend that the Black Eyed Peas song "Boom Boom Pow" is being censored over at free radio.  Free radio meaning not satellite radio.

Here are the uncensored lyrics:

Here we go, here we go, satellite radio
Y'all gettin' hit with boom boom
Beats so big I'm steppin' on leprechauns
Shittin' on y'all with the boom boom

Here is the censored version

Here we go, here we go, s******** radio
Y'all gettin' hit with boom boom
Beats so big I'm steppin' on leprechauns
S******' on y'all with the boom boom

Wow. Who knew that satellite is as bad of a word as shit? Grow up.  This is just another in a long line of reasons that radio just doesn't matter anymore.  Censoring words like satellite?  Hmm. 

Go ahead.  Turn on your "free" radio station.  It won't be long before they play this song.  Tell me you are hearing what I am hearing.

 Seems someone is "Clear"ing our "Channel" for us and might just be worried about non free radio being the wave of the future.  No one thought someone would pay for TV til cable came along right?-Dr.FB
