The Slice

Did Spokane stations play this song?

I've read that quite a few radio stations across the country refused to play this song about a white girl who tells her black boyfriend she can't see him anymore. It came out in 1967, but Janis Ian wrote it several years earlier, when she was something like 13. Just think of that.
