WAM May 12- 13 David Chafe
The federal budget brought down by the Conservative government in Ottawa has resulted in more cutbacks to CBC’s funding and the dominoes have been falling across the country.
A couple of those dominoes flipped here in Newfoundland and Labrador. CBC has announced the decommissioning of both our inhouse recording facility, Studio F, and the mobile unit, used for remote recordings at concerts and festivals across the province.
Many groups are also upset by this turn of events, and arts organizations have come together to issue statements about their concerns.
David Chafe is the chair of MusicNL and he joins me in the studio this morning.
