This Just In...

N.J. Rock Station Won't Play Jethro Tull

'Jethro Tull is off the playlist of a classic rock station after the band's frontman criticized displays of the Stars and Stripes.

"I hate to see the American flag hanging out of every bloody station wagon, out of every SUV, every little Midwestern house in some residential area," Ian Anderson was quoted as saying in an interview published Sunday in the Asbury Park Press.


"The reaction of our audience has been 99 percent in favor of the ban and 99 percent incredulous that he would say such stupid things," said Phil LoCascio, WCHR program director and on-air personality.
However, the remaining 1% of the listeners were confused and puzzled because they always thought the name of the lead singer of Jethro Tull was a guy named Jethro Tull.

Goodnight, and have a pleasant tomorrow.
