Ok, here's the deal. We are officially in peak wedding season. I feel that pretty much my entire month of August will be taken up by going to weddings, all over Canada.
Many Canadian musicians are getting married this summer, including my brother-in-law Matthew Barber, Casey Laforet of Elliott Brood, Coeur de Pirate, and Dan Mangan. Long time Radio 3 producer Chris Kelly is also tying the knot!
So is R3 blogger Fiasco 22, who has asked for our help...
"I'm getting married on Sep 8 and we need some music!"
This brings us to our...
Poll Question of the Day #1:
IF YOU'RE MARRIED, WHAT WAS YOUR FIRST DANCE WEDDING SONG?
Poll Question of the Day #2:
IF YOU'RE NOT MARRIED, WHAT SONG DO YOU WANT AS YOUR WEDDING SONG?
Poll Question of the Day #3:
WHAT MUSIC SHOULD BE PLAYED AT FIASCO 22's WEDDING?
Which songs work best based on your wedding-going experience? Live band, DJ, or iPod? How much Canadian indie versus classic hits? What keeps the dance floor packed for all ages? Or do you hate weddings and you will never get married and it's all just a traditional sham?
Let me know your thoughts by posting on our blog, email email@example.com, or twitter us @cbcradio3 and we'll discuss your comments throughout the show. Feel free to post your best and worst wedding shots in your profile pic today.
