Mainstreet features local, national and international news, lots of local music, traffic tips and weather, and thoughtful discussions about some of the issues of the day.

Hosted by Bob Murphy, Mainstreet's regular columnists keep you informed and entertained.

The Mainstreet Spinbusters drop by regularly to talk provincial politics, and other columnists bring you the latest on technology, scientific breakthroughs, business, parenting, pop culture, marketing and more.

Mainstreet airs from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. weekdays on CBC Radio One on mainland Nova Scotia.
