I chose to delete the mostly inane blathering of the CBC guy at the beginning and end of the broadcast, although I did leave the commentary during Interlude and a couple of other interjections to preserve the continuity of the broadcast. A lot of people consider the CBC, and specifically CBC Radio, to be a national treasure. Too bad so many of the on air people aren't up to that standard. In this case it was Rich Terfry, also known by his alternative hip hop persona Buck 65. -Original
