A new show, “The Radio 2 Top 20,” launched on Aug. 17 and features the 20 hottest adult alternative songs from Canada and the world that are played each week on CBC Radio 2.
CBC says that “Radio 2 Top 20,” which airs Friday evenings, gives Canadians the chance to hear the most popular tracks from CBC Radio 2 Morning and Drive in one listen. The new show will also allow listeners to interact by voting online at the program’s website.
“We’re really excited about this innovative approach to the familiar format of a chart show,” said Chris Boyce, CBC executive director, Radio and Audio. “Canadians never stop loving great new music and ‘The Radio 2 Top 20’ show connects us with the best new music we love and want to hear.”
“This isn’t just another Top 20 show,” said CBC Radio Producer, and Host Nana Aba Duncan. “It’s an interactive platform where we can source the top Canadian and international tracks for our listeners and let them take part in the selection process by voting online.
