Starting on Monday, February 6, KJMK (93.9 FM) in Joplin, Missouri says it will show solidarity and allegiance with the Kansas City Chiefs by pulling Eagles hits like “Hotel California,” “Take It Easy” and “Take It to the Limit” until at least February 13.
The Chiefs will face the Philadelphia Eagles at the Super Bowl on February 12; the Eagles clinched the National Football Conference (NFC) championship after beating the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday due to a mixture of quarterback injuries and bad officiating.
KJMK’s ban also extends to songs performed by members of the Eagles in their solo capacities — meaning no tunes by Glen Frey or Don Henley will air on the station, either.
“We love the Chiefs, and want to do our part to show support for our ‘Mahomies’ in their efforts to bring another championship to Kansas City,” Thom Watts, the program director for KJMK said. (“Mahomies” refers to fans of Kansas City quarterback Patrick Mahomes.)
No word yet if KJMK plans to keep the ban in place if the Chiefs aren’t able to bring the Vince Lombardi Trophy home.
