Laurie Brown thesignalThis week on The Marketplace of Ideas, Colin Marshall talks to
Laurie Brown and Andy Sheppard, host and producer, respectively, ofThe Signal on CBC Radio 2. Since debuting in March of 2007, the program has evolved to provide a highly distinctive listening experience that offers two skillfully-curated hours of late-night contemporary music to listeners across Canada — and, via the internet, the world — that’s neither predictable nor easily genrefiable. Brown accompanies Shepard’s unusual sonic selections with commentary that’s long impressed fans with its friendliness, intimacy and wealth of odd stories.

The Marketplace of Ideas airs every Thursday at noon.
