The BBC have no connection with the charts,,,,,the downloaders I'm sure wont be bothered about the beep not playing it,,,,

Its hit the charts, to them that will be a cause of celebration as they have given it a chart slot.

Kay ????

The BBC usually play the whole of the number one record of the week, in this case they have decided to play just 5 seconds just so to show, maybe, that they haven't banned it. :-S

Remember when 'Je t' non plus' was banned?
To my mind purely because of someone's dirty mind.
Now the intro is played on adverts!!

Seems daft to ban it. Anyone likely to be offended is hardly likely to be listening to Radio 1 on a Sunday afternoon.

Most people listening won't care either way.

It's been playing on the BBC news channel this evening so it would be hypocritical for it not to be played on Sunday.

Storm in a teacup. It really doesn't matter in the great scale of things.

Agree Muffs,

in all honesty the public *outrage* has done these people good as it caused th desired reaction,,,,,,,and the public fall right into their hands so to speak,,,,they are like naughty kids,,,react and it draws the attention they want.

As I said on another thread, over 20 years ago, when my children realised you choose the music you wanted played at a funeral, they decided it should be played at MY funeral. I agreed as long as 'Stairway to Heaven' by Rolf Harris (and I've got the CD) was also played.

Now I feel I've been usurped :-|
