In the summer at CBC Radio One, it seems everyone leaves and they give Sean Cullen, goofy Canadian comic extraordinaire, run the studio on Saturday mornings with his show Simple Seán (note the accent on the ‘a’).
He rambles like an idiot for a few minutes. First you’ll think, How can they let this fool on the air? Next, you’ll be laughing out loud. This will repeat throughout the show.
Then, for some reason quite surprising, Sean plays fantastic music. Today he played Joel Plaskett, The Deers, the Mountain Goats, the New Pornographers, Sloan, Broken Social Scene, the Stills and a few other goodies.
A good listen – Saturday mornings on CBC Radio 1 through out the summer.
