CBS Radio active rock WYSP/Philadelphia morning show host Kidd Chris and PD John Cook have been fired over a racist song that was performed by in-studio guest Lady Gash on March 21.

The song, "Schwoogies," was sung to the tune of Blondie’s “Call Me” and was broadcast several times that day and again on March 24. The song was recorded by listeners and posted on Web sites, including Lady Gash’s MySpace page and .

R&R received the following statement from CBS spokeswoman Karen Mateo:

"We found the song to be highly offensive and completely inappropriate for broadcast on our airwaves. When senior management of the station learned that it had been played, they took immediate steps to prevent it from ever appearing on the station again.

No he shouldn't have been. it was a hysterical song, sung by a listener...not even by someone employed by CBS. People are overreacting just because its about black people, just like with the Imus situation. Kidd Chris was one of, if not the best radio show to come around in a long time and its sad that he had to take this hiatus. and we all know it will be a hiatus just like O&A and Imus. If you think he should have been fired you basically disagree with the 1st ammendment.
