Dear CBC Radio 2,

It’s me again. I tuned in this morning and once again I have cause to thank you: I am so happy that finally there’s a radio station giving air time to such commercially unsuccessful artists as James Blunt and the Barenaked Ladies. My tax dollars should definitely go to making sure they get heard, and not to something as culturally peripheral as, say, the CBC Radio Orchestra. It’s a relief, also, especially in the morning, not to get those jarring contrasts we used to get when switching from commercial top-40-oriented radio stations to Radio 2. All those violins and harpsichords that would just come out of nowhere, interrupting the flow of banal lyrics!

Sincerely,

RM

PS James Blunt? Seriously?!

PPS Nothing against the Ladies, really.
