Perhaps you're right. When I dj'd, and it was only about 10 shows 'fore I quit, the CRTC restrictions were very clear, but ••••, (hey, that rhymes)if I wanted to let's say feature Matthew Good Band, and because Symbolistic White Walls is considered a HIT, I shouldn't have played it, because community radio can't by-law compete with commercial radio, even if you play Canadian. I mean a hit is a hit is a hit. Period. Doesn't matter that SymbWW was a hit in '95 and is hardly ever heard now, aw crap. It was a drag. I quit.
Yeah maybe CANCON isn't to blame completely for making me sick of Canadian music. Maybe it is the state of commercial radio programmers getting what?, payback? I wonder... to play certain artists 'til we puke, maybe it's the CRTC. I do hear good Canadian music from CBC, and Bravo. At least it's varied.
