One for the over 55s... Can't Post or Reply Privately

Right the song is Lola by the Kinks. Hit the airwaves in the
summer of 1970. I was always presumed that Ray Davies
had buckled under pressure from the corporate iron fist, and
changed the second line lyrics from Coca-Cola to Cherry cola.

So how come they got away with in on the LP version then?

Just heard it on a French/Swiss radio station and was quite
surprised to hear a version with Coke being used. Did a bit of
Googling and then realised the original was released on the album.

I'm not over 55, but I can hazard a guess it was because the much heard Cherry Cola version was an edited (or censored) version for the airwaves as advertising in any form was frowned upon by the BBC et al. I suppose it is the same way the radio version of many of these "rap" songs have edited bits out of them, yet the LP version has everything without bleeps or gaps.

Short answer, radio stations never played songs from LPs.
