    Greg Quill should be “shitcanned” by The Star. He might as well be a shill for the Canadian pop music establishment and current CBC management.

    “Airplay” on Radio 3 is worthless if no one is listening. To even call it airplay is rather missing the point.

    Can Radio3?
    Serves almost no one?
    Talk to the 1000s of bands thrown a little airplay thanks to Radio 3.
    Talk to the ones who got major exposure after being put on the podcast, one of the most popular music podcasts on itunes.
    Talk to the crowds who show up for the Radio3 touring shows.
    Look at the stuff the Beeb does with BBC6.
    Radio3 is a step in the right direction.
    Now if only we get it on the radio….(sigh)
