A guest post by Allan.
It’s been easy to sit and sneer at all the whiners over at Inside the CBC who can’t stand radio change.
But when I awoke to hear that Jeff Goodes had abruptly left the
weekend morning show Fresh Air, I frankly got a little misty.
I had only discovered Jeff in the last couple of years, though he’s been on for ten, and his show was such a stark contrast to everything else on the air.
An easy pill to take, consisting mostly of homegrown music that always had a positive vibe, but of course it was those instant E-mails that Jeff would read aloud which made each show so special. People would write in to share how they were starting their day, both in the country and the city, and naturally they all loved Jeff.
He somehow made the world seem bearable. that we were all in it together, and not that different from one another after all.
Turns out it really does hurt to get attached to something, something so filled with kindness and hope, and then to have it taken away. Stupid CBC.
