        The Canadians are indeed much more interersted in regulating racial
hate speech and such than obscenities. I recall a couple years ago, around
10 or 11 p.m., hearing a Snoop Doggy Dog song with many obscenities in it
(needless to say) on CJBC/860, the CBC French station in Toronto. It's
great to see Canadians helping to spread the finest in American cultural
achievements :))


 Have you patronized the skywave signal of a AM Class A station today?
