Whether at home, the cottage or if you are brave enough to hit the campsite, you can tune into The Strombo Show on CBC Radio 2, starting at 8 pm EST. Click here to find your frequency. From the show's Facebook page: "This Sunday a special May Two-Four Strombo Show. George hands the show over to The Tragically Hip's Gord Downie for over an hour. Gord plays some music from his library and talks about his new band, The Country of Miracles."
As a result of the continuing NHL playoffs, the schedule for The Hour may be a tad wonky this week. When in doubt, check your local listings.
