A South African radio station played the STEEL PANTHER song “Glory Hole” on a Sunday afternoon and soon after issued an official apology
The statement of apology, issued by LM Radio, has been removed from the companies’ social media pages, however, Loudwire was able to grab a screen shot of the note, which explains the mishap as follows:
“On behalf of LM Radio. I want to apologise unreservedly for the song ‘Glory Hole‘ by Steel Panthers that was played just after 2pm yesterday (Sunday). This song, together with others from Steel Panthers, was inadvertently backed up onto our Server following the cyber-attack on our systems earlier this year. When an Hour is short-scheduled, the system automatically includes songs to fill the hour. ‘Glory Hole‘ was unfortunately the song picked by the system,” revealed the station in their statement.
LM Radio added: “We have immediately deleted ALL Steel Panther songs from our Servers. I again apologise for this and assure you that the content of that song does not resonate with who we are as a radio station and as individuals. – Lyndon Johnstone.”
The apology, which can be seen below via screen grab, caused numerous responses from listeners, from those celebrating LM Radio‘s decision to address the error to those who found the mishap quite hilarious and welcome.
News of the incident actually got back to STEEL PANTHER who responded, “They say, ‘We’re sorry.’ We say, ‘You’re welcome.'”
STEEL PANTHER are currently working on a new album, “On the Prowl”, which is set to arrive in 2023.
