Lana Gay is a daily host on CBC Radio 3 and SiriusXM162 as well as a content contributor on CBCMusic.ca. She also hosts the weekly R3-30 show and podcast, showcasing the Top 30 Indie Canadian songs in the nation. Lana is fixated on independent Canadian music and also enjoys writing and tweeting about oddities, technology, food culture and anything to do with Dolly Parton.
She got her start in radio at 102.1 the Edge in Toronto, then travelled west to become Indie Music Director at Vancouver's 99.3 The Fox and joined CBC Radio 3 in 2007.
Lana is proud to hail from Leamington, Ontario where she was raised on Motown music and Hungarian food (an underrated combo, really.) She won the 'Most Likely to Save the World Award' in high school and knows the value of a cold beer, an old record and a sassy pair of boots. Once, she tried to chase a rainbow and ended up in Blenheim, Ontario.
