Host Sherri Hope Culver talks to professionals in the music industry, including those who work with kids, to explore the topic of explicit lyrics in songs and what they may do to children ages 10 and below. Could their absence in an edited version of a song trigger curiosity? What happens when a previously “clean” pop song features a hip hop artist who uses profanity? And who is held accountable? Record companies for marketing songs with explicit lyrics to kids? Artists for writing 2 versions of a song so kids know there’s a clean version and a version with explicit lyrics? Parents for not monitoring what their kids listen to?
Culver is joined on set by Kathy O’Connell, host of the WXPN radio program Kid’s Corner; Gabe Romano, a member of the kid’s indie music band, The Plants; Phil Nicolo, an award-winning music producer and Adjunct Professor at Temple University; and DJ Bonics, hip hop DJ for Wiz Khalifa and radio DJ at Wired 96.5 FM, to answer these questions and more.
