15 June 2010 - To kick off its 20th anniversary, The David Suzuki Foundation is preparing a compilation called Playlist for the Planet. Lots of Canadian recording acts, including Broken Social Scene, The Trews, Rush and Bruce Cockburn, are committed to it. West Coast acts include DOA, Jessie Farrell, Randy and Denise Bachman and Todd Butler. In the course of gathering the album for a November release, the foundation is also running a contest with CBC Radio 3. Songwriters can register with the CBC and upload their song. The 10 most popular songs with listeners will be whittled down to two for the album. To register -- go to www.davidsuzuki.org/playlist.
