On the run

While on the go, I was listening to CBC radio.   The host of Q has been replaced by a rapper named Shad, short for Shadrach.  Anna Maria Tremonti interviewed him, yesterday.  He seemed likable.  His parents were refugees in Africa most of their lives;  this is how he came to be born in Kenya.

The CBC comes under a lot of criticism, but I have to say that it has enriched my life greatly.  When I first came to Canada, I learned proper English speech from it, fluently and intelligently spoken on air.  I learned about politics, writers and musicians, all with the mandatory Canadian content.

I wish Shad well.
