According to the Associated Press, two Colorado DJs have been put on suspension for playing the Dixie Chicks on the air.

Dave Moore and Jeff Singer broke the rules of their Colorado Springs radio station when they played a few Chicks songs without the permission of the station manager, who instituted a ban on the band after lead singer Natalie Maines' comments about President Bush.

The station manager, Jerry Grant, admitted that there were discussions about re-introducing the Chicks' music to the airwaves, but the DJs "jumped the gun" when they played a few of their songs earlier this week.

"I gave them an alternative," says station manager Grant. "Stop it now and they'll be on suspension, or they can continue playing them and when they come out of the studio they won't have a job."
