the new improved CBC Radio 2... sucks
I have been listening to Radio 2 since university, something like 1987 or so.
Disk Drive would help me through the tail end of the afternoon, then I would often fall asleep during the 6 PM news.
So now they have "fixed" it.
Now there's no news whatsoever.
Um, I like the news. If something happens, it's nice for the radio to tell me.
Plus which, at 6:30 there should be some upbeat music to sustain you as you return home and get into an evening of work or whatever.
Instead, there's some f-cking jazz thing.
Jazz is 11 PM.
Jazz is gloomy men slouched in chairs looking at the tunnel of night stretching before them. Jazz is when I turn off the radio and go to bed.
Jazz is not f-cking 6 PM when I want to get an update on the news of the day, and then things done.
Plus which, the news slot is replaced with 3 minutes of repetitive promos.
Yeah, I heard you the first thousand times, thanks.
Wherever music takes me?
Music takes me to playing CDs instead of listening to this new cr-p.
Thanks a lot, CBC.
