Chicago Based Radio Station Pulls Out R. kelly Songs From Their Repertoire
After two radio stations in Dallas decided to pull R. Kelly ‘s music from their repertoire, a Chicago radio station followed suit – 95.1fm.
This move comes after the media storm that followed the airing of Surviving R. Kelly . This ban is significant considering the fact that Kelly has been celebrated as one of the biggest artists to rise from the city. Lamont Watts, who runs the station, explained the decision in a video posted to Facebook.
“As a leader of a team where women contribute unselfishly, in a business where the majority of our audience is women, as a son, a brother and a husband of a devoted family, and to hear and see the pain and suffering that is real for so many, effective immediately, we will no longer play the music of R. Kelly ,” Watts said
