Oh no! Not another fantastically lame contest devised by the CBC braintrust to help “define” us… Urgh.
It seems that Canadians are being challenged by CBC Radio 2 to nominate 49 examples of our “mighty distinctive music.” (*cough*) for the next U.S. president “to groove to as he takes office Jan. 20.”
Good grief, how pathetic. I’m normally a pretty staunch defender of our public broadcaster, but when they indulge in puerile exercises like this the dismissive contempt with which some regard the CBC seems entirely deserving.
Update: Argh! It’s got a website!
Update2: My suggestions for this travesty…
