Hawksley Workman - Politico commentator?

You gotta check this You Tube video out. Here is the scenario. CBC Radio One's GO show had a great bit where they invited singer songwriters into the studio and asked them to put lyrics to music that the studio audience submitted! How cool is that?

Only on GO. Yes that's right - the show gave the audience five minutes to come up with some song lyrics and professional songwriters went to work and made complete songs out of them.

Hawksley Workman was the cream of the crop. He mashed up two different sets of lyrics from audience members, and went to town on them.

Only on GO will you find such hilarity. The political bent of the lyrics makes this little tune even more effective. The proroguing of parliament has been a gift to the chattering classes!

Have a laugh and check this one out.

btw: big news for the Indie Radio Show...we have Tom Wilson, of Lee Harvey Osmond, Blackie and the Rodeo Kings, Junkhouse live on the show for an unplugged set February 24th. Gonna be a great one!
