If you’re looking for the newest in Canadian music, look no further than CBC Radio 3. The online, cutting-edge branch of CBC’s radio division was born out of CBC Radio 2 in the late nineties, and firmly established itself as a full online magazine in 2002, when it won three Webbys and 20 other awards for excellence. Today, Radio 3 is the place to hear a mix of your favourite new Canadian artists, established faves, and those who just don’t get their due elsewhere. Excellent taste in Canadian music and care for artists at a grassroots level make CBC Radio 3 a must-follow on Rdio. Below is a smattering of tunes you might expect to hear on CBC Radio 3’s Rdio page, courtesy of online personality Bren Hodge.
