Often while I do that, I listen to podcasts. But this is Saturday night, so I've got the radio turned to CBC Radio One and I'm listening to "Randy's Vinyl Tap," which is arguably the best music show in the land. While I've pretty much given up on regular radio, there are still some great shows on CBC and since they're not yet releasing them as podcasts (although they're thinking about it) Randy's Vinyl Tap is one I always try to listen to.
Host Randy Bachman, of course, was one of the founders of The Guess Who, one of the most famous Canadian bands of all time, and certainly the most famous to ever come out of Winnipeg. His show features his incredible stories about the popular music scene over the last 40 years, which he fills the show with. And he plays his personal favourites throughout, all with his unique personal touch.
Tonight, he's featuring instrumentals only. "No voices at all," he says, except his own to introduce the songs. It's been a great show so far, and there's still another hour to come.
If you haven't checked out the show on CBC Radio One (alas, it's not available as a podcast yet) try to carve some time out of your Saturday nights and listen. I guarantee you'll have a good time.
