A British radio station has banned all songs by balladeer James Blunt from its playlist after receiving complaints from listeners.

Controversy comes after fame. That's something normal. James Blunt is one concrete example of it. He is experiencing opposition from people who are sick of hearing his songs on the radio as a result of which a U.K. radio station has banned him from its play-list.

Things began when Blunt defended his music at an awards ceremony last week by telling his critics to turn the radio off if they didn't like his songs. And by now on Essex FM banned Blunt's songs after listeners complained they were tired of hearing his hit singles "Goodbye My Lover" and "You're Beautiful."

Program controller Chris Cotton encouraged other radio stations to take the same step while saying "We don't have anything against James Blunt and we're pleased he has been so successful, but we really need a break".
