Texarkana’s Classic Hits station – HITS 105 is taking all Madonna songs off the air in the station’s local programming indefinitely following the singer’s comments over the weekend.
In addition to ‘F-bombs’ in her speech, Madonna talked about how upset the election results had made her including her now infamous, "Yes, I'm angry. Yes, I am outraged. Yes, I have thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House," comments.
General Manager of HITS 105, Terry Thomas, says “banning all Madonna songs at HITS 105 is not a matter of politics, it’s a matter of patriotism. It just feels wrong to us to be playing Madonna songs and paying her royalties when the artist has shown un-American sentiments. If all stations playing Madonna took their lead from us, that would send a powerful economic message to Madonna.”
