CBC radio's technical difficulties net techno magic - #cbcglitch

If you were listening to CBC Radio One yesterday afternoon you might have heard Stephen Quinn uttering the words "That's it" over and over and over again, eating up about 25 minutes of the airtime from his afternoon program, On the Coast .

If you were listening to CBC Radio One yesterday afternoon you might have heard Stephen Quinn uttering the words "That's it" over and over and over again, eating up about 25 minutes of the airtime from his afternoon program, On the Coast. The official word from CBC was that they experienced "technical difficulties that caused audio glitches during broadcasts in several parts of the country. The glitches, which began airing around 7:40 p.m. ET, resulted in a five-second audio loop, repeating broadcasts instead of scheduled programming". Yesterday's difficulties turned into today's internet magic as people took the glitches and made music out of them.

CBC Vancouver's own Rafferty Baker mixed one of the first tracks featuring Stephen's new catch phrase:

Rafferty's fellow CBC employee Andrew Kurjata from Prince George grabbed a bunch of clips from different streams and made this sweet medley:

And last but not least, CBC listener Spry Bry put together this danceable mix of Stephen's clip:

I would say "That's it" but I'm really hoping to see a few more songs come out of this today!
