NXNE 2012, Day 3 (Jun. 15): We catch some air

One of the great things about CBC Radio 3 is the opportunities for interaction, with the hosts, bands and live radio in general. We're not just talking about the blog, although that's an integral part of the R3 experience. You don't have to be on the blog to put your name in the hat for the Listener Co-Host Initiative with Craig Norris, or call in to Trivia Tuesday with Grant Lawrence.

Taping a show with Radio 3 in conjunction with NXNE has become something of a tradition. A small group of bloggers that included musicians Jody Glenham and The Mountains & The Trees recorded with Craig Norris at NXNE in 2010; last year, we taped a Breakfast Club with Vish Khanna. This year, Craig Norris hosted listeners who were on board Tracks on Tracks. And on Fri., Jun. 15, N2DS2W put Radio 3 host Pete Morey on the spot with Montreal's Parlovr over his mispronunciation of the band's name (say "parlour," not "par-lover").

Radio 3 bloggers CDNz1 and Zoot Aloors named Pete's show.

 Although not new to CBC-- Morey's worked on a variety of programs including GO! with Brent Bambury, Q with Jian Gomeshi and Radio 2 Morning--he's relatively new to Radio 3, and doing a great job holding down the fort as a weekend host and filling in other time slots.

Many thanks to CBC Radio 3 and Pete for giving us another great NXNE experience to cherish.
