I love CBC radio. I play it loud with the windows down while driving through quiet residential neighbourhoods. The content and production values surpass anything else on the radio in this country.  I had to turn off my radio to write this, because otherwise I'll be too distracted.  I continue to love it, despite the fact that my favourite show is being cancelled this summer, a decision for which I blame . . . well I won't get political here.
