With 20,402 artists, boasting 90,077 tracks, the CBC Radio 3 web site is the absolute ultimate authority, and the home, of independent music in Canada. Recently relaunched with some fancy new tools for members (free to join!), we’re taking advantage of what they’ve set up by bringing you a fresh batch of music every week featuring local groups who have tracks (entire albums, even!) on the R3 site.
This week we are honoured to have CBC Radio 3’s Grant Lawrence as our guest ‘lister! The frontman of the legendary (currently defunct) group The Smugglers, Grant is a Vancouver native and the voice behind a daily show on Radio 3 and the weekly Radio 3 podcast.
