side note: due to growing up rather sheltered with no control of the radio on car trips my pop music experience went straight from oldies to the Spice Girls. i missed the late 70s and the 80s entirely. i tell you, the difference in production was a trip. all the synths made it sound completely artificial.
"but many 'golden oldies' had synths in them," you might say. that's true, but on AM radio you couldn't really tell. :P
@nev Maybe it's because Ive been thumbing things up and down so long that I usually get pretty CanCon compliant lists... But there are Canadian playlist stations on GP that are pretty good.
Call me a bit of a sucker but you honestly can't play too much Matthew Good Band, BNL, Our Lady Peace, Gordon Lightfoot, BTO, Tragically Hip, Sum 41, 3 Days Grace, The Trews, 54-40, Sloan, Glorious Sons, or Rush around me.
