Mr. DJ, Don't Play That Song

Eric Burdon - Sky Pilot
Simon and Garfunkel - Homeward Bound
Peter Paul and Mary - Leaving On A Jet Plane
Mel Tillis - Stateside
Barry McGuire - Eve Of Destruction
Freda Payne - Bring the Boys Home
Bobby Bare - Detroit City
Animals - We Gotta Get Out Of This Place
Boyd Bennett and his Rockets - My Boy Flattop
Edwin Starr - War

When I was in Panama and we had troops in Nicaragua, there was a rather crummy bigband song "Managua Nicaragua", recorded by both Freddie Martin and Guy Lombardo
Lyrics were rather interesting.



At AFKN-TDC they got a new general and a not very smart DJ dedicated Stevie Wonder's "You Haven't Done Nothin' Yet" after a diatribe. BAD idea.

Do they play Ray Stevens "Ahab the Arab" in Iraq/Afganistan?

What did you play that they didn't care for...
