Croatian Radio Station Boycotts Bob Dylan


Because of statements made during an interview with Rolling Stone magazine recently saying that Serbs can recognise Croats just as blacks can recognise racists and Jews can recognise nazis, Bob Dylan’s songs were banned from being broadcast on Croatian radio station Radio Split on Friday, writes Croatian website index.hr.

Although Dylan’s latest single was hit of the week, bosses at the Dalmatian based radio station decided to boycott Dylan after his controversial comments.

The 71 year-old American’s single “Duquesne Whistle”, from his latest album, was on the playlist on Friday but as index.hr reports it was replaced.
