I don't know of one. I only knew of stations not playing it, or only allowing the DJ's to say "Elton John from the album Caribou"
or simply "Elton John from Caribou". But they played the song as it was. I don't believe that Casey Kasem ever said the title but
it was in the countdown, I think he just said "here's Elton John" at whatever number it was. The Casey shows with the song in it I
believe came with a letter to stations saying they had permission to edit the song out. (The Casey contract forbid editing of the
show if I remember correctly)

Policy in my market was "Play It, announce it as Elton
John from Caribou" This was followed by all Top 40
stations in the East Tennessee market.

Funny, I just noticed I answered this in the same way a couple of years ago!

I do the same thing. That's why I deleted my comment
above because once I realized this is an old thread, I
looked back at my old post and saw that I pretty much
wrote the same thing over again.

Most of you guys are talking about how the song, or the
way it was announced was censored, but all of that is
alien to me because I have a different experience from
where I grew up.

Growing up in Erie, PA, I seem to remember the jocks
saying "Elton John from Caribou."

There were 2 top 40 stations here back in the 1970.
WJET-AM and WCCk-FM, both owned by different companies.
In 1974, WCCK refused to play "Jet" from Paul McCartney
and Wings because JET was their main competitor and the
PD of WCCK didn't want to place the thought of JET in
the listeners minds. They did, however, play "Bennie and
the Jets."

Odd,I know.
