A controversial Christmas classic will stay on our airwaves this season.

Many major broadcasters including Bell Media, Rogers and the CBC have pulled the song, "Baby It's Cold Outside" amid concerns the song promotes date rape.

Program Director for Y95 CJLS Jim Grattan says , following a meeting this morning, a decision was made to continue playing some versions of the song.

"We're playing both. We have a couple of the older versions and more recent artists, of course, have come out with remakes in the past years and we'll continue to play those, as well."

Grattan says the song has been one of the most requested based on CJLS Facebook page comments.
