Philadelphia Radio Station Boycotts GUNS N' ROSES Over Gig Cancellation

Philadelphia's 93.3 WMMR Rocks! radio station has announced plans to boycott GUNS N' ROSES' music for three weeks in protest over Axl Rose and Co.'s cancellation of last Friday's gig in the city. The station will resume playing songs from the band's back catalog following the expiration of the three-week period, but will refrain from adding any music from the group's upcoming "Chinese Democracy" CD until such time as Axl calls the station and apologizes to the fans.

In other news, WNNX-FM, "Atlanta's choice Alternative Rock radio", has posted via its web site a five-minute recording of one of its reporters broadcasting live from Philadelphia's First Union center just as the GNR riots were beginning to kick off on Friday, Dec. 6.
