I'm only really thinking of Radio One, because Radio Two fills such a niche. CBC TV is pretty much pointless, and Newsworld is hardly ever news anyway.
I used to listen to Radio One almost exclusively. The morning show was local news/current events, kept you in touch with your community. At noon, we in the Maritimes had a good show which focussed on regional items, especially resource type things, farming/fishing/oil/resources, etc. And the afternoon show was often good, too. In between, depending on the day, were some good programs of current events/politics/arts/entertainment.
But with the lockout, I find it unbearable. Hideously bad and pointless. I don't hear what's going on in my area. So I listen to the commercial crapola stations. And after getting used to it, I might not go back. What am I saying. How could I get used to that? The commercials are the best part, other than the late school bus reports. Maybe I'll just get and FM dohickey for the iPod.
I think CBC TV is proving its pointlessness. As far as I can tell, there is only one thing that CBC TV does better than anyone else: hockey. Other than that, there's nothing special. So why bother?
What about you? Has CBC slit its own throat? Or will you return when it goes back to normal. Heck, for all I know it already is back to normal.
