Riffed from the headlines 17/12/2016

Listen 1:20

Riffed from the Headlines is our weekly quiz where we choose three riffs linked by one story in the news. Guess the story that links the riffs and you could win a Day 6 tote bag and a personalized note from our very own Brent Bambury.

Last week's clues were Matt Mays with "Tall Trees", The Black Keys with "Grown So Ugly" and Sloan with "Green Gardens, Cold Montreal".

Sarah Haddon of Sherbrooke, Quebec correctly guessed the headline we were looking for: Montrealers debate the city's "authentic" or "ugly" 26-metre Christmas tree.

Congratulations, Sarah! A Day 6 tote bag is on its way to you.
