(The time zones are now correct. Sorry!)

Sushi, float-planes, rain, old friends, and rain...

The R3-30 is basking in the misty, coastal glow of Vancouver! This week's show has a damp, humid quality that we just cannot achieve when we're in Toronto. Whether or not that translates into a "better" show will be a judgment that will be left up to you. I doubt it, though.

For the first time ever, we inject an "R3-30 F.C. Favourite" into the show and we have Chartbreakers from MBP, The Parkas, and Bedouin Soundclash. There is a very in-depth "History of the Chart" question from a listener, and Pedro will lift an entire burlap sack of sparrows clean over his head.

Plus (and trust me on this) there's an exclusive bonus Long Range Request only on The R3-30 Podcast this week. Simply put with no hyperbole: groundbreaking.

On web radio, The R3-30 debuts on Fridays at 9 a.m. PT and re-airs on Saturdays at 6 a.m. PT and Sundays at noon PT.

On Sirius 94, we debut at 4 a.m. PT on Fridays, re-airing on Saturday at 7 a.m. PT, Sundays at 10 am PT, and Mondays at 2 p.m. PT.

The R3-30 Podcast drops on Mondays.

The chart, people. The chart.
