Clear Channel Playlist

NPR's Rick Karr reports on a list of 160 songs that have been deemed "inappropriate" in the wake of last week's terrorist attacks. A senior executive at Clear Channel Broadcasting distributed a list of the songs to its 1,200 radio stations across the country with the suggestion that the songs not be played on the air. The list includes John Lennon's "Imagine" and "Come On, People," by the Youngbloods. (4:18) Check out the list of songs on the NPR Web site.
