Colby Cosh is convinced that nothing has changed on CBC radio since its workers went out on strike Monday:

[A]ll that’s on at the moment [on CBC-1]–and presumably this is true nationwide–is a low-key broadcast of syrupy lite jazz, introduced brusquely by a Toronto CBC manager. Aside from the periodic apologies for any disappointment or inconvenience, it’s just about indistinguishable from the CBC’s regular programming.

Wait a minute. Syrupy lite jazz? I was sure the CBC was choc-a-bloc with feminist propaganda, neo-Marxist sermonizing, and anti-American screeds. How’d they manage to shoehorn in all that jazz too? Maybe it was Diana Krall doing double duty, crooning “Smoke Gets in Your Eyes (When You Protest Globalization).”

  1. CBC? What’s that? 🙂
