‘’It’s a fun song’: Radio station plays controversial ‘Baby, It’s Cold Outside’ for 2 hours straight
ELIZABETHTOWN, Ky. - A radio station in Kentucky had a two-hour "Baby, It's Cold Outside" marathon over the weekend in light of the recent controversy over the nearly 70-year-old song. WAKY played five versions of the song from 8 to 10 a.m. Sunday, according to WLKY. "I'm not sure why it's controversial," Joe Fredele, director of programming for WAKY, told WLKY. "We've played this song for years, you know, this song is older than WAKY is. It's almost 70 years old. It's just a fun way of saying, 'Hey this our vote for that song. It's a fun song. It's a romantic song, don't pick on it'."
