I'm trying to find a serial radio play that CBC Radio ran about 12-15 years ago. The show was about a regular joe who gets to be prime minister of Canada. His cabinet consist of just a couple people including an Indian Chief who is in some way associated with a turtle who is minister of defense. [MI]

At one point the PM launches a pre-emptive military strike on the USA and has some success because the US is both not expecting it and Canada is privy to all their plans because of our link up with NORAD. IT's wildly funny and I'd like to get a recording. Can anyone nail down the artists or title?

Have you checked the CBC archives. If you don't see it there, you should just write to them. I know lots of people who work for CBC radio; they live for calls and emails about radio history. And since it's a crown corporation, you don't need to feel bad about taking up their time ;-)

I want them to release the Dead Dog Cafe already, man. Why the heck isn't it at all available?

This questions reminded me of another CBC show radio drama, which I remember being high-larious when I first heard it (of course, I was younger then) and when I went to look for it, I found this.

It seems to be... um... free. I ordered one, let's see what happened.

Hey, they've got DDC!

It's $40 on cassette. Looney! (Especially as there's no doubt in my mind that my tax dollar has already paid for it, and quite well at that.)

I went through all their spoken word stuff and couldn't find it. I see now they have a web form I'll give that a try.

FFF check your local library (or not so local, though intra system loans may cost you a buck or two). Calgary's has them and it is legal to make a copy for personal use. It's one of the reasons I'm hoping to find the name for this show. I can't imagine the catalogue being all that useful with only the details I posted.
