In the early 1980s, a Canadian Broadcasting Corporation station in what is now Nunavut was vacated by its technical staff during a CBC labor strike and taken over by the Inuit janitor and his buddies. Apocryphal tapes circulating in community radio circles since then include this version of the state song of Louisiana, You Are My Sunshine, sung in Inukitut. Please don’t take my sunshine away is understandably a popular lyric north of the arctic circle where people live through 65 days of sunless winter.

Yes, I’m supposed to be going over my taxes. What’s your point?
