On De Scene: Censoring Soca on Bajan Airwaves

>> Wednesday, June 10, 2009

The tune Staggerah by has been banned by the Starcom Network of stations. Apparently the powers that be believe that it offers free advertising for a beverage. (Monster Energy Drink)

Starcom Network includes the ever popular HOTT 95.3 FM and Voice of Barbados 92.9 FM - Two of the most popular stations during the Crop Over season. Hott 95.3 is the young people station and vob 92.9 has a more mature audience.

Yeah, what's more interesting is that this tune is out of Peter Coppin's camp - Monstapiece Inc. featuring Fadda Fox. Now besides being an accomplished producer, Peter Coppin works for one of the stations that banned it. Actually, he has been one of the leading personalities on Hott 95.3 FM for several years now!
