The OTHER 50 on the CBC

Hello and welcome to Pregnant Without Intercourse (PWI, for short) I'm your host Keith (Fatcitizen) Serry. If you're here today it's probably because you heard Matt Galloway and I talking about things on CBC's Here and Now. I hope you enjoy your stay. Please feel free to leave a comment.

Even if you know the final score, you might want to check things out from day one. Thanks again for visiting. The F.C.
PBS by Raffi deserves a top 50 nod... damn you Carl for taking away a contribution from the man whose music is often Canadian kids' first introduction to music. I waited all these weeks to see his name, and all for nothing.
Love, Raffi.
Great interview fatty!!
Thanks anon! I had a blast, Brent's a fabulous host.

And Raffi, it's funny how you've begun referring to yourself in the third person . . . what are you, Ricky Henderson?
Hey! How did that "(live)" thing sneak back into the Hallelujah listing!? Do we have to go back over the Casio argument and subsequent compromise, or what?
Nope, Carl. That'd be a typo. Fixed now.

Hi Fatcitizen,
Really gratifying to see songs like Hallelujah (god I love Rufus Wainwright's version), Secret Heart and Body's in Trouble on your Other 50 list!

I want to introduce you to a very musically talented friend of mine at The fabulous Stewart Reynolds is playing live tonight at a pub called "Foster's Inn" in Stratford, Ontario. Check it out!
