When you call CBC Prince Edward Island in Charlottetown and ask the operator to connect you to someone, you’re briefly put on hold. While you are on hold the “hold music” is CBC Radio One which, more often than not, is audio of people talking.
This morning I called CBC to talk to Mitch Cormier and while I was on hold for a brief few seconds, I heard only the phrase “meteors raining down.” Then Mitch answered the phone.
If you assembled an audio montage of these micro soundbites you would have an interesting, and perhaps terrifying product.
By the way, Mitch actually used the phrase “XML staging area” in our conversation. That was frightening.
