With the Juno's coming up...how would you rate the following?

The Juno's air this weekend, it is a big weekend and time to celebrate Canada's musicians and music biz...

How would you rate our homegrown industry?

What do they need to do to grow it? 

Lastly, how good a job is the Canadian Radio Industry doing at selling "Cancon"?


If you want to celebrate Canadian music... CBC 2 is doing special programming on Sunday...with a focus on Canadian music... eh?

Here is more information on this special programming this weekend.

My money's on Leonard Cohen.  No one in the history of music has won more awards posthumously.  I think he's up for 'Best R&B / Hip Hop' recording this year.

Charlie, I am rooting for Justin Bieber...I think he trumps Cohen all the way and he's a bit more upbeat too!

Juno I wish all good things for Canadian talent, but some of the auto-tuned mainstream dreck (Drake) that sells so outrageously, has me bored with a lot of the music scene that gets developed and then promoted in this country, at least the tunes that make it to the airwaves.

The faux front page of today's Toronto Sun is nothing less than a full page ad for Corey Hart's new album. That tv show the List? whatever it's called, is a good idea..

Wouldn't it be old school cool if Q107 did a an updated battle of the bands? Rock and guitar based music never went away, and with the  popularity of the 80's and 90's these days in pop culture, (including the upcoming Motley Crue biopic) it's due for a resurgence. Or one can hope.

It could be a way for Q to bridge the gap between the difference in the ages of their listeners, and create some buzz about the station, and refresh the 'brand'. It would also cost a fortune so... guess I've answered my own question..

Torres' CIDG "Rebel Radio" in ottawa still does an annual rock search, and it's relatively popular.  Before flipping formats, the blues based "DAWG FM" also ran a version, and was partially responsible for the rise of monkeyjunk.  I have a lot of respect for this station.  a fiercely local stand-alone that has gained traction in both ottawa and gatineau.

the associated costs are not all that high, particularly if you co-op it with an existing popular nightclub.

thanks splunge, I checked out the link. Seems like a great effort. With the ability that musicians have these days using tech to record, and promote their own work, supporting the live performance, and radio airplay still remain one of the best ways for media to stay engaged.

I still remember hearing the Weeknd for the first time on Virgin radio here in Toronto, the first time I heard USS, and Monster Truck on 102.1 FM. Radio still has a part to play in supporting up and coming musicians and bands.
