Interactive CKCU

although all the announcers I listen to on CKCu are passonite and informed about the material they're playing ,I think Ckcu could distinguish itself by encouraging more guest visits , which may not be as deep as the regular fair but adds different kind of vitality and appreciation. For instance :I have just typed "deep" as above as Steve Neale introduces"Deep Velvet" with the overlape of the vowels and consonants about 75% similar. Coincidence>I think so.
