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.

that pic was taken out the float plane window. i was pissed off because all of the island commuters got on the plane before me and took all of the window seats.
then, with one of the most glorious views known to man, proceeded to open their newspapers and/or fall asleep for the entire flight.
so, i reached over the guy sitting beside me (while he slept) and snapped this photo.

Just taking a look at the timeslots.. crappy but even moreso when you do the PST time conversion. You guys deserve to be on primetime. At least diversify the times a little, morning, afternoon, and evening. I remember the radio2 days.. saturday night. That timeslot worked for me really well. :-)

Also nice picture. Here's a view from my university to make you more more envious. ;-)

My sirius radio is fried (plus cannot receive signal where I live) so I'm relying on the web radio/podcast right now.

As Mr Rdickie said, there needs to be more convenient time slots for R3-30 web radio.

Say for Friday.. late afternoon maybe, because that's winding down to the weekend and I don't have any classes (university) around then, for Saturday.. return the 9-10PM slot that was on CBC2, so that we can listen to the R3-30 while watch HNIC, and sunday.. prob late afternoon.. but for me it's near impossible with the current slots because of school unless if it was stated above. Quite a few of the people I've personally spoken with who listen to CBC Radio 3 are university students, so a time slot that's later in the day might be best.

Can't wait for the FC Favourite!

I hit the refresh button and i suppose firefox resent my "POST" data along with it. :/ That hasn't happened before but that is my only explanation for what happened.

I agree, the time slots for the R3-30 are far from ideal, I can't imagine a time when I can hear catch it. Saturday night was perfect.

So it's 9:30 AM ET and I'm tuning in hoping to catch the last bit of the r330 yet, I don't hear it. Am I missing something in the web radio times, or are the times listed above off a bit?

Yeah, I noticed that as well. I scheduled some of my work today to be at my PC for 9am ET in order to catch it.

The current host (missed her name) just mentioned the R330 and to tune in for it, but did not say anything about times - just to check this site.

Anyone have the inside scoop?

I think Craig meant PT, not ET. The R3 web schedule is based out of Vancouver I'm guessing so that means it'll be 12:00noon for Ontario and Quebec.

Call me old school, but I still miss the days when Radio 3 used to be on the Radio 2 stations late at night on weekends...

Okay its been almost 25 years since I lived there, but how about, "the Fax" - i can hear the sting already. A la Dragnet: "All we want are the facts ma'am, Just the Fax"
