Xfm apologise for bad track

Ofcom received a complaint from a listener to Xfm Scotland’s MP3 Downloads Show after hearing the song ‘It was a good day’ by Ice Cube.

The song used a strong swear word several times and included sexually explicit language. The listener noted that the presenter did not apologise afterwards.

GCap said that this was a genuine mistake and apologised for any offence caused. It explained that the Ice Cube track had been mistakenly loaded into the system and mis-labelled as a ‘clean edit’. Unfortunately, the presenter was unaware that the wrong version was being broadcast as he was working on a separate feature at the time; that was why an on-air apology was not made.

The track had now been deleted from the system and all presenters had been reminded to double-check the procedure for loading tracks.

Ofcom comments: “The track was clearly unsuitable for broadcast at a time when children were likely to be listening. However, in view of the apology and action taken to prevent a recurrence, we consider the matter resolved”.
