Yeah, David Marsden, first from CHUM FM. He and David Pritchard, and Reiner Schwartz. They created Album rock, rebels playing whole albums. That was when CHUM FM was cool. In the seventies. I don't live close enough to get 94.9, but could sometimes hear him through static on my back porch in the summer. I get phased out by our crappy local country station. That ain't country. But I digress.
I do notice that David throws in the odd bit of junk, but that's because he has to.
My opinion is. Yeah on the one hand CANCON is a good thing in that we get to hear great Canadian stuff, but being a former community radio dj, the CRTC rules are strict. 50% Canadian every hour. But when David plays it, you'll hear a Bryan Adams tune that wasn't a big hit. He picks the Canadian stuff you DON'T hear on "Classic Rock" stations.
CANCON is the reason I GET SICK OF Canadian artists, 'cause they are played TOO OFTEN. That's just my opinion, but if I hear Nickelback one more time, or Alannis, or what's her face from Napanee, I think I'll puke.
