Real Radio continue to wind me up with an edit of REM's 'Losing My Religion' that cuts the mandolin solo towards the end. They always play this rubbish edit, just as Radio 1 used to play a single edit of 10cc's 'Rubber Bullets'.

But 10cc had some lyrics that were unseemly for radio in the 70's - I don't know about REM's.

Yep, they still won't play "Second Sitting For The Last Supper"

(But they do, frequently, air Elvis Costello's Oliver's Army, which contains the N word)

Thanks for reminding me about Second Sitting For the Last Supper - Classic Rock magazine should have it as onhold music given the amount of non-stories on Axl Rose ('2000 years and he ain't shown yet' is appropriate to the reclusive megalomaniac)!

Radio Leeds still play the edit of Barry White's 'You're the First, The Last, My Everything' that loses the spoken intro ('We got it together baby...').

Do they think that their audience will think they're watching 'Ally McBeal' if they play the full version?

Absolute Radio just played an edit of the Who's 'Won't Get Fooled Again' that seemed edited by the same doylum who cuts to ad breaks on the Five channel in the middle of a sentence!

By the way, there was a thread on the now defunct Void pages on ITV Teletext about songs that remind viewers of comedy programmes; one viewer said they couldn't hear the Specials' 'Ghost Town' without thinking of the episode of 'Father Ted' with the raffle in it. I can't hear The Who's 'Who Are You' now without thinking of the 'Two & A Half Men' spoof of the 'CSI' series.

On theirs, the song came on with 'Men-men, men-men!' replacing 'who-who, who-who?' The same series also used 'Squeeze Box' as the theme song for a fictional cop show that Kandi (Alan's dozy girlfriend) had a role in.

Every time I hear 'Who Are You', I can't help but think of the mystery voice spot when Johnnie Walker did Drivetime, likewise Chuck Berry's 'No Particular Place To Go' makes me think of the 'Cruisin' spot from the same show.
