CBC Radio 3 You've Got a Friend in Me... Radio 1 I like you too. Radio 2 I am indifferent to you but stay around cause I bet others like you.

Today I am supposed to write about a new friend I have made but word on the street (Facebook) is that the CBC is in trouble/is being bullied. I don't know how serious the trouble is but you Canadians should probably sign this and add a note about it to your weekly letter to your Member of Parliament.

Dear Mr. Dean Del Mastro c/o Mr. Harper's office (because you decide everything anyway),

I love the CBC. I don't think Canada needs to make international blockbuster hits. There are enough of those in the world and sometimes our stuff makes it (re. Anne of Green Gables). More importantly you get rid of the CBC you will ruin everything that I love about the radio (and TV too) and turn it into PBS with its HORRIBLE fund drives.

I am going to have to agree with Corus on this one which is something I have never wanted to say. Thanks Harper, you've made me take sides with Shaw Cable's brother.

Subscriber to The Vinyl Cafe, DNTO, Q, Spark, Laugh out Loud, Radio 3 Track of the Day, R3-30, Radio 3 Sessions, Canada Live; avid reader of; and obsessed listener of CBC Radio 3.

I will step off my soap box now.

  1. I for CBC sticking around, but I don't understand why their financial statements aren't more open to the public. Perhaps I'm misguided, but I don't think it's a matter of national security to know their expenses if they are a public company.
