Re: Censored Songs in the 1960's
Conway Twitty's version of Danny Boy (JR's encore song more often than not) was reportedly banned by the BBC in the late 1950s. Why I really do no know but I have to wonder if it had to do with the style of Conway's version(he was a 'rock and roller' in his early days). Or was it because it was looked upon as the Irish Anthem ?? Perhaps our friends in the UK could enlighten some of us. Cheers!
