12/1/16: O Canada


Three things factored into my choice of theme this past week:

  1. My visit to Vancouver in August.
  2. The election of President Douchebag in the United States of America.
  3. It’s December. Canada is cold.

I’m not going anywhere, but many are talking about an exodus to Canada. Therefore, I thought I’d dedicate this episode to the rock & roll of Canada. So –  take off to the Great White North! The great nation of Canada. My second favorite country in the world.

I’ve always said much of Canadian rock & roll borders on cheese. Some cheese tastes great. Some just stinks. To elaborate, there’s been a lot of cheesy rock & roll made up north way. Canada is known for a few things in rock & roll. High pitched frontmen, the power trio and of course, Nickelback. I played some cheese, tastes great! However, I believe my taste strayed away from the stinkiest of Canadian cheese. There will be no Nickelback, no Barenaked Ladies, nor the damn Crash Test Dummies either! Can’t go there, not even in an ironic way.

Here’s the playlist – three hours of the finest Canadian rock & roll.
