Thanks from unplugged CBCers at Studio Zero

Permalinks to this entry: individual page or in monthly context. For more material from my journal, visit my home page or the archive.

JJ Lee, a locked-out producer for CBC Radio, just called me about 15 minutes ago to thank me for providing the music he and his team used for Studio Zero from last week. He also left a comment that notes another episode being recorded Monday at the downtown CBC building, which I hope I can drop in on.

Another interesting aspect of the CBC Unplugged podcast is how different groups have approached it differently. The Vancouver group created a strike diary last week, while others are putting together versions of regular programming, with news, current affairs, and interviews too. The thousands of CBC staffers have created their own little podosphere. And in just one week, listeners like me have pushed them to #4 on the iTunes Top 100 Podcasts list—ahead of Newsweek, Al Franken, CNN, and even a naked woman in the bath.

By the way, JJ let me know that, in the rush to complete last week's show, he and his crew didn't get the information for whoever made the other background music they used. If it was you, please leave a comment here and I'll pass the info on.
