Brent Seltzer and Meg McDonald seem like jerks.
Lots of format changes In Canadian radio in the past week.
Also, lots of American talk show hosts leaving to start their own online ventures.
The following were the CBC Radio summer shows I enjoyed over the past couple months: "What a Waste", "Live Through This", "Head to Toe", "The Bugle and the Passing Bell", "How to do It", and "Newshounds."
Jim Wright kind of seemed to be phoning it in last Sunday.
Some of the Radio Monaco programs CBC has been broadcasting overnight seem interesting.
Was listening to Premier Radio, a Christian station from the UK, a few weeks ago. Seems kind of derivative and commercial in some ways, but it still has some interesting programs and features from what I could tell.
Am enjoying Michael Herzog on RBN. Hopefully, Michael Rivero's switching networks works out well for him.
The reception on 9475 has been bad the last little while.
Glad WWCR's stream doesn't drop out every fifteen minutes like it used to.

The fade-in of this song is just incredible. The song also has a relaxing, mystical quality, mixed with just the right amount of aggression.
The album will be available in October.
Check out the video for The Backbone here.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7x3wO3Ul0fg

When most folks think of Canadian's they often think of the kindly person who is humble to a fault, but is that true?
Although some are fundamentally the stereotype, many fall way short. Example in the spring of 2005 I was standing at a crowded bus stop after working at a sheltered workshop, when some random stranger pushed me head first in to a light standard. I assumed that I would immediately be helped, however I was shocked to hear one of the bystanders say, "she's handicapped.` Other members of the crowd chuckled and made comments about me being with out a worker.
Too Many Hall Passes
Recently supposedly Christian youngster Justin Bieber was seen in two videos using the N word. It was dismissed, because he has mostly black friends. In my opinion, however they gave him a pass because he was Canadian.
It's Your Call
Whether or not Canadian's need an image overhaul, or you think Canadian's are the original idea of the unassuming people say what you think.

I can't of course stream American TV networks due to certain restrictions.
However, I can stream many foreign broadcasts. Just the other day I was watching UCB Television from the UK via Christian Tuner. Via the same platform, I have streamed Australian Christian Channel as well.
Reportedly, you can also stream Kenya's public television broadcaster.
There is of course Jump TV, a site which I have been to a few times but have never explored in depth.
There are other ways of streaming television broadcasts but I haven't looked into them yet.
Update: After checking the websites of both CKWS and CHEX just now, you can stream CKWS's evening newscast but apparently CHEX's is not available.
This morning around 8:30 I picked up WDCX Buffalo with Keylife, Discover The Word and into Alistaire Begg.
Then I went flipping around and landed on what I believe was WEAR. The station on this frequency used to be a Family Radio afiliate, but it would seem that station has been sold to the Family Life Network.
Next, I picked up WRUR Rochester and listened to it for a few hours. The signal was fairly weak but audible. I listened to this station while working on the computer. I didn't care I couldn't make out most of the music and talks; I just felt good knowing it was on in the background. At one point, though, I think they were playing blues music.
Finally, I caught Jazz 90.1 Rochester with Michael Buble, male anncr and then into old jazz recordings. Something else I'm glad I tuned into.
