Tom Power lets loose in a Cultural Speedround
Tom Power's a bit of a CBC darling. He's one of the youngest people to ever host a national program for the network, he's an affable Newfoundland native and he knows a ton about Canada's music scene.
So we knew that when we grabbed him for a Cultural Speedround — where we pepper our willing victim with cultural questions — it'd be an intriguing session.
And Power didn't disappoint. He brought all of his insight (and arcane knowledge) to bear on questions from "Who's the artist you'd most trust to give you sage life advice after you found them in a cave?" to "What's our biggest misunderstanding about folk music?"
The answers are both delightful and, in one case, a little spooky.
Listen to Tom Power on CBC Radio 2 Morning weekdays at 6am (6:30 NT) on CBC Radio 2.
Watch Exhibitionists Sunday at 4:30pm (5pm NT) on CBC Television.
