Before I proceed, I want to send out my thanks to Lana Gay for sitting in for the past two weeks!
Welcome to the brand new sound of The R3-30! From now on, I'll be recording the show live - on location - from wherever I happen to be. It will be a weekly, fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants extravaganza! You could even drop by! This week, I'm in The Atrium at The CBC Broadcast Centre in Toronto. Who knows where I'll go next?
Seriously. Do you know?
Besides ambient crowd noise in the show, you'll also hear debuts from Metric, Dearly Beloved, Paper Lions and Cold Specks!
To celebrate this new, live-off-the-floor vibe, I'll be counting down the artists that you think are the best live acts out there, according to your votes on The R3-30 FunClub.
