Due to legal threats from an enraged listener and after internal complaints, a short-lived Schilling Show theme-song revision has been yanked from the program.
A mash-up of three different versions of “Takin’ it to the Streets” (Take 6, The Doobie Brothers, Quincy Jones), the show theme features WINA station callers and in-studio guests making humorous remarks over the song’s main lyric. One person, at least, did not find levity in the re-mix.
Exclusively online, hear the banned intro theme of the host who remains a “light in the darkness,” despite attempts to portray him otherwise.[audio:http://schillingshow.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/05/Show-Intro-05-2010-Mix-ful.mp3|titles=Show Intro 05 2010 Mix ful]

Frankly I can’t find anything objectionable in the song. Well, everybody’s afraid of a lawsuit.
I’m really confused here. What was the issue? You mean to tell me Charlottesville Radio Group wouldn’t step in a defend free speech? Amazing! (not really)
