Radio 2 Top 20: a Canada Day weekend all-request special

Editorial Staff

Canada Day all-request special

This week, the Radio 2 Top 20 is showing our great nation some love with an all-request special. Canadians from across the country told us what they wanted to hear on Canada's 147th birthday weekend and we obliged. Plus, a few requests from some of your favourite CBC personalities. Canada, this one's for you!

For one request, Q host Jian Ghomeshi taps Spirit of the West, "Far Too Canadian." This isn't the official video, but you will feel terribly patriotic after watching this.

And our own Tom Power gives some love to his home province with a pick from Hey, Rosetta!: the tune "Red Heart."

And now a little Cancon awesomeness courtesy of Rush and a very cool seven-year-old. You go, Avery!
