As 2006 careens towards the finish-line, we're pleased as punch to announce CBC Radio 3's first annual Bucky Awards! Yes, we're getting into the awards business. Nothing major, Pete Doherty won't be snorting lines off of Grant Lawrence's ass - well, not this year anyway, but we'll see how things go. Baby steps, right?

While not exactly a state secret, the nominee selection process is difficult to explain. Radio 3 staffers have worked tirelessly to come up with a list of finalists. But here's the catch, the Buckys can't do it without you, the fans of great Canadian independent music, doing your part to help separate the wheat from the chaff.

You have until December 15th to exercise your franchise, and vote. You can vote in as many, or few categories as you please.

Winners will be announced during the awards show hosted by the aforementioned Grant Lawrence, and airing on Christmas Day @ 6:00 PM ET / 3:00 PM PT.

Is there any chance each of the nominated songs could be linked from the voting page to the R3 Media Player? It would make it heaps easier to vote for the best hook or beat if I could give the tunes a listen first.
Thanks, rob

The award categories are pretty awesome (even winning the award for "Best Song Title" may not exactly end up in an artist's promo material), but, yeah, I'm going to need some R3 media player playlists to vote.

Can we vote more than once? Since Emm Gryner isn't nominated for Sexiest Canadian Musician, I’ll have to vote plenty of times to give her a fighting chance as a ballot write-in canidate.

Who is that guy with the kick ass facial hair in the photo? I think he winked at me from his little box on the home page. Is that possible or have I had a bad batch of eggnog?
