As part of my Bad Singer book project, I helped make a radio doc called “The Ballad of Tin Ears” for CBC Radio Ideas. It airs Tuesday, May 6 at 9 pm on CBC 1. If that’s not a convenient time for you, the show is available for streaming anytime (also available as a podcast for a limited time).
The one-hour show features culture, ethnomusicology, neuroscience, psychology and singing — some of it, admittedly, mine (let’s just say the shower scene is the scariest since Psycho).
I hope you will find it entertaining and that it will give you a better sense of what will be in Bad Singer, which will be out from House of Anansi Press in 2015.
