Who's got your back? We do... that's who.

I bet a lot of you thought that, when we told you we were developing
new features and podcasts, we were just saying that to get you off our
backs after the news that our Saturday Night Show on CBC Radio Two was going off to that great receiver in the sky, right?

Well, we're happy to announce that, starting next week, the R3-30 and
New Music Canada Track of the Day now come in podcast form, along with the original (or classic, if you will) CBC Radio 3 podcast you already
know and love. As if that weren't enough, we'll also be streaming a
new show called CBC Radio 3 Sessions.

Monday mornings needn't be so blue now that you can take Craig Norris with you wherever you go. The R3-30 podcast is a weekly one-hour countdown of the best in new music according to CBC Radio 3, and includes blogger and listener picks, chartbreakers, and more Pedro than you can shake a stick at!

You've enjoyed the New Music Canada Track of the Day for many months now, but you haven't been able to take it with you. Now, through the magic of podcast technology you can put all of our CBC Radio 3 hosts in your pocket every day of the week. Er... every weekday anyway.

For CBC Radio 3 Sessions, we've combed the streets and alleys of Canada to find this nation's most happening bands. When we find them, we invite them in, feed them some doughnuts, and press the record button. The music is live off the floor, contains no overdubs or studio trickery, and features the band at their performance best. But wait... I'm not done. Then we pair up two of these sessions, mix in some interviews, and stream it along to you. Sounds good doesn't it?

If you're a podcast subscriber, you'll start receiving the new podcasts automatically. Should you decide that you really only want the original podcast, or if you want to select only one or two of the three, we'll give you instructions on how you can do that this coming Monday. If you're not already a podcast subscriber, what the Sam Hill are you waiting for? Here's a link to our podcast superfeed, which you can post into whatever podcast software you use.


Have a great weekend! Now scoot. We've got tonnes of work to do!

uh oh...i just heard on the R3-30 that not every song will be played. That's too bad. Will every song at least be named?

Hey blinger,

Yes, every song will at least be named. There will still be a good spread of music, so don't worry! We wrestled with what to do and decided that a three-hour podcast was a little...er...heavy. Plus, not all of the songs that are on The R3-30 that you hear on Sirius and/or R2 are "podsafe".

Give it a whirl on Monday and let me know what you think, OK?

Thanks for listening!

i never really thought about whether the songs were "podsafe". I guess I'll just have to wait until monday to see how it is, but I'm sure it will be superb anyway. Also, I really enjoed this week's R3-30 more than usual, it was an excellent show!
