In my honest and small opinion I believe that a radio station listed as highlander radio should show the scope of all music that has been influenced by clan culture. If this is not true and I am wrong then all Afro-celtic, celtic world, and new age music should be removed as well. Keep playing it all highlander radio!

Music is part of history and culture. By putitng away those songs you put away a part of the history. If someone doesn't like it, he just has to turn it off. Those songs helps us to remember the past and give us a chance to stop history repeating itself about domination and slavery by reminding us how people have suffer and how humain being can be evil. sad.gif

It's great that we keep them on.
Have a good day everyone biggrin.gif

yes i agree with that u takte the good old days with the bad old days

My ancestors, both Scot and Irish fought on both sides of the Civil war. I consider it to be a part of my heritage. In fact the Scot side of my family split for many years because of it and went so far as to change the spelling of the family name to show the devide. Keep it up. I still prefer mostly Celtic music though.

This is probably the most familiar song of the Confederacy:

Dixie

O, I wish I was in the land of cotton
Old times there are not forgotten
Look away! Look away!
Look away! Dixie Land.

In Dixie Land where I was born in
Early on one frosty mornin'
Look away! Look away!
Look away! Dixie Land.

Chorus:
O, I wish I was in Dixie!
Hooray! Hooray!
In Dixie Land I'll take my stand
To live and die in Dixie
Away, away,
Away down south in Dixie!

Old Missus marry Will, the weaver,
William was a gay deceiver
Look away! Look away!
Look away! Dixie Land.

But when he put his arm around her
He smiled as fierce as a forty pounder
Look away! Look away!
Look away! Dixie Land.

Chorus:
O, I wish I was in Dixie!
Hooray! Hooray!
In Dixie Land I'll take my stand
To live and die in Dixie
Away, away,
Away down south in Dixie!

His face was sharp as a butcher's cleaver
But that did not seem to grieve her
Look away! Look away!
Look away! Dixie Land.
Old Missus acted the foolish part
And died for a man that broke her heart
Look away! Look away!
Look away! Dixie Land.

Chorus:
O, I wish I was in Dixie!
Hooray! Hooray!
In Dixie Land I'll take my stand
To live and die in Dixie
Away, away,
Away down south in Dixie!

I fail to see anything offensive in these lyrics. I don't see much difference between this and such traditional Irish songs as The Blacksmith or I'll Go No More a Rovin' .

Although there are several versions of the song, the above is the most familiar. The following is a version written by Confederate General Albert Pike:

Southrons, hear your country call you,
Up, lest worse than death befall you!
To arms! To arms! To arms, in Dixie!
Lo! all the beacon-fires are lighted,--
Let all hearts be now united!
To arms! To arms! To arms, in Dixie!

Advance the flag of Dixie! Hurrah! Hurrah!
In Dixie's land we take our stand, and live or die for Dixie!
To arms! To arms! And conquer peace for Dixie!
To arms! To arms! And conquer peace for Dixie

Hear the Northern thunders mutter!
Northern flags in South winds flutter!
To arms! To arms! To arms, in Dixie!
Send them back your fierce defiance!
Stamp upon the cursed alliance!
To arms! To arms! To arms, in Dixie!

Chorus:
Fear no danger! Shun no labor!
Lift up rifle, pike, and saber!
To arms! To arms! To arms, in Dixie!
Shoulder pressing close to shoulder,
Let the odds make each heart bolder!
To arms! To arms! To arms, in Dixie!

Chorus

How the South's great heart rejoices
At your cannon's ringing voices!
To arms! To arms! To arms, in Dixie!
For faith betrayed and pledges broken,
Wrongs inflicted, insults spoken,
To arms! To arms! To arms, in Dixie!

Chorus

Strong as lions, swift as eagles,
Back to their kennels hunt these beagles!
To arms! To arms! To arms, in Dixie!
Cut the unequal bonds asunder!
Let them hence each other plunder!
To arms! To arms! To arms, in Dixie!

There are more choruses but they are all in the same vein. This is certainly a call to arms but there is no glorification of slavery or even states rights. Political correctness has run amuck in this country to the point where people are offended for no reason. If it's not even acceptable to wish someone Merry Christmas, Dixie doesn't stand a chance.

As a proud southerner (and historian's daughter), I say "PLAY ON." Despite popular misconception, the civil war had nothing to do with slavery until Lincoln introduced the topic in order to drum up support for the war.

My system has an off button, perhaps that should be used if the person
is offended by the music playing at the time. huh.gif

Kinda playing catch up so this is a late post! Can't change it, yankee or rebel there was a civil war and music was part of that cicil war. I say why not? I most likely have relatives that fought on both sides and I for one moved from Minnesota to Texas so my heart goes out to both sides and think that such a great radio station that this is has to play both sides. England, Ireland, Scotland have all had sword banging and blodd flowed on all sides. The music captures the good and bad and if it is there we can opt to listen or not listen.....
