As RATM is not a Canadian artist, I believe this is actually a whatever-the-Canadian-analogue-to-the-FCC-is violation.

the word you're looking for is "CanCon" and yeah, this would appear to be a violation.  good catch.  this radio may be fined because they decided FUCK YOU I WON'T DO WHAT YOU TELL ME.

This is the most I've cared about over the air rock radio in 15 years.

welp it was fun while it lasted and turns out it was a stunt rather than a protest as the radio station was in the process of switching formats to something called SONIC - The New Alternative...

Similar Stunting has happened in the past for radio station format changes.

so came across a story about Geddy

https://consequence.net/2022/06/facial-recognition-technology-mother-rush-geddy-lee-holocaust-photo/

First was like...I didn't even know he was a member of the tribe (as if his honker wasn't evidence enough)
(I even checked all three of Sandler's The Chanukah Song and some how geddy was overlooked)

but then found this great quote that I can 100% relate too

Lee has described himself as a Jewish atheist, explaining to an interviewer, "I consider myself a Jew as a race, but not so much as a religion. I'm not down with religion at all. I'm a Jewish atheist, if that's possible."

Does Ayn Rand know he stole her quote?
(of course she does)

Ummm Has our resident Canuck seen the Pentaverate yet?

Good stuff, Iím sure 1/3rd of the jokes were lost on me
What a master he is

was not aware of the Pentaverate.  now queued.

i thoroughly, thoroughly enjoyed The Pentaverate.  highly recommended if you're a fan of Mike Myers' writing, which i have been since i first saw "So I Married an Axe Murderer."  Netflix clearly gave myers a truckload of money and was told "so whatever you want" - so he did, including dragging the Netflix CEO in to make fun of... Netflix.  brilliant.
