Over to you – what would you want to see on this list?

colinstetson.jpgIt’s that time of the year when all good radio shows put together their “best of” lists. In fact, CBC Radio 2 is in the midst of voting for the Top 50 Artists of 2011.

That list includes many artists getting play on Radio 2 Morning and Drive. You have until midnight on December 19th to weigh in: VOTE FOR CBC RADIO’S TOP 50 ARTISTS HERE.
