"No matter how long the winter, spring is sure to follow." ~Proverb

What songs put you in the springtime mood? That's the question that we asked on The R3-30 FunClub last week, and you answered loud and clear! So, today in the show, besides counting down the most popular music on this network, we'll also be counting down Your Favourite Springtime Song in order of your voting!

Besides that, there are fresh, new debuts from Kathleen Edwards, Baby Eagle, Catl, and Teenage Kicks. There will also be an admission from Pedro and I about our gardening prowess. Hi-o.

For next week, we want you to visit The R3-30 FunClub and vote on which of the 30 R3-friendly artists you would most like to see win a Juno Award next weekend!

@EP - Mine often gets stuck on one song. Sometimes just clicking on the Radio 3 tab at the top and refreshing the page without refreshing the page for real helps but today it's not. Also, I don't know how you'd refresh the page without refreshing the page for real in iTunes so this comment was useless and I'm pretty sure it doesn't make sense.

Also also... I'm really not enjoying the Heartland and Dragons' Den ads I'm getting when I start the R3 strea, I try not to complain about new site stuff and I understand they probably need to play the ads for some reason or another but it kinda sucks. I will never watch Heartland. I'm sorry CBC... I just won't. What makes it worse is I usually have to click "play" a few times and now I hear the ads everytime. Buh!

@Mike re: the ads - Yeah, I know. That's why I'm finding it hard to complain about it but it bugs me. I think mostly because when the site first launched I only heard them on the other streams and for some reason I didn't mind that, but now that they're at the beginning of my R3 listening time, it's driving me crazy. I'll suffer through too though, because I love this site otherwise. :)

Another reason to really dig into the CBC archives are many years of Cohen interviews, the quote can be sussed out, http://1heckofaguy.com/2007/02/24/the-leonard-cohen-cbc-interviews/ but it may take a few listens/watches to find it. I'd look circa 1978-1980 era first for that particular Doorhinge reference!
