CBC and Mozart

I was mistakenly listening to CBC Radio Two this morning on my way around town, and overheard the announcer suggesting that listeners looking for more information about a Mozart-related contest they’re running “Google CBC and Mozart.”

This seems like an odd thing to do, given that the CBC (a) has no control over Google’s search results and (b) the CBC could have easily created a web address like “cbc.ca/mozart” that would have been just as easy to convey over the radio, and more reliable.

Speaking of the CBC, remember that tomorrow, Saturday, January 28th from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. is the open house at the broadcast building on University Ave. in Charlottetown. Word on the street is that there are door prizes galore.

Oddly enough, cbc.ca/mozart DOES exist, and leads right to the contest.

Do they have no control? Or is coming out on top—say, for a week—something Google would sell them?
