SALT LAKE CITY -- A hit record by singer Olivia Newton-John has been banned by two Utah radion stations, including one owned by the Mormon Church, because it contains 'suggestive' lyrics.

The song 'Physical' is No. 14 on the Hot 100 chart in Billboard Magazine.

KFMY-FM in Provo pulled the record off the air after receiving complaints about Miss Newton-John line 'let's get physical.' KSL-AM in Salt Lake City decided not to include the record in its lineup because of the contents.

'The lyrics are more suggestive than most songs,' KSL program manager George Lemich said Monday. 'It goes the one additional step.'

Lemich said KSL, owned by the Mormon Church, routinely turns down records it does not believe meet the common taste of its audience.

'Once the words sank in, it caused an uncomfortableness among listners,' KFMY Program Director Jim Sumpter said in an interview with Billboard magazine.
