 Have you caught Juno fever? If your answer is "yes", then The R3-30 may just have the cure!

On Sunday night, the Juno Awards will be handed out in Ottawa, Ontario, and we're excited here at R3 because thirty of the artists we play are nominated this year! Now, I don't know if this means that the Junos are finally cool, or R3 isn't anymore.

I'd like to think the former.

Besides counting down the top songs on our network, I'll also be revealing the indie artists that you would most like to see win a Juno - based on your voting at The R3-30 FunClub.

I'll also have a chat with Gavin Gardiner from The Wooden Sky about his passion for collecting a certain musical instrument. (HINT: It's not a zither.)

So, sit back, relax and take The R3-30 to cool your Juno Fever!

Share this post

The R3-30 w/ Joel Plaskett, The Wooden Sky & indie artists you want to see win a Juno Award!

(Hopefully... if I can convince Nic not to play hockey and to go to his parent's place so we can watch instead.... damn HBO only being part of the movie network and costing an extra $20!!)

They played "the classics" as well as a bunch of new ones. The Pack A.D. were wicked awesome but I dunno if I'm as much of a fan as I thought!! It was good but Maya's bass drum was SO LOUD!! I'm pretty sure my organs shifted around inside me. It made it pretty hard to listen to. :(

I disagree on the key. There is a vulnerability and innocence in those lyrics that is reflected in the plaintive vocals. It's almost like he's playing that song in his room, for himself, and it's everything that he wants to say to the person he loves but he doesn't have the courage.

You gotta expect Joel to stretch out from his comfort zone from time to time, he's being writing songs forever, and looks for fresh ideas to experiment with, I'll trust his judgement, and hopefully will love the song as much as one of his hits.

I'm sure Jian spouts monologues that end in rhymes in every conversation, too.  I almost saw him in real life last NXNE, except I wasn't in the back alley behind the Horseshoe with all the other hooligans.

Craig:  In no way was I questioning your love of the CBC.  I just find peoples' career trajectories interesting, that's all.

@loweeda [265] No, what I meant was that I always loved the CBC, and that factored in to my decision to leave CTV!

@zoot

I didn't know either, until my wife's uncle was moving out of his house (alzheimer's); and I raided his record collection.  I got a mixture of strange, interesting and great finds.

I can only comment, as I'm sure Samara was, on Ben's "On Air" personality...and I find him very fake.  I like Samara's comment about him needing more "personal" in his On Air Personality.  If He's a great person, he should be himself.

CDNz1:  Hooligans, yes.  that's what you are, the whole lot of you.  And I count myself in your company - except for that night, because the Radiohead and I didn't really understand what was going on.

@Old Abe. Couldn't agree more. And I've told him that.

But he's a consummate pro. Never makes waves, reads what's written. And it must be working! eTalk Daily slaughters almost everything in the ratings. Not my cup of tea, mind you!

I find that those of a certain generation can't get past his last name.

re:Junos On CTV, G-Law was magnanomous yesterday, giving props to CTV for improving the profile of The Junos, and I'd have to agree, the Junos are a big deal these days!

Maybe, to backpedal on my Ben Mulroney bashing, I'm sure he's a big music fan, I'm thinking.. Brahms concertos on high-fidelity reel-to-reel? 

@ Craig, now if you only knew Jay Onreit, well then....

EtownBeatDown re Record Store Day:

I am excited at the mere prospect of living in a city that HAS record stores.  

(London has record stores, right?  I feel like it must)

@zoot [279] Grant is dead right. Since CTV took the Junos on, they've really turned it into a world class awards show.

Feist performing Mushaboom, Alanis Morissette in a nude suit, and K.D. Lang are just three perfect moments seared into my memories from recent Junos, I think Garf is hosting a blog somewhere here on the blogs during the Sunday televised portion. Hope to chat along with anyone who wants to join in!

Alright Loweeda!!! Now you have to tell us your middle name!!!! All thrones below [#500] are booby-trapped with a question you MUST answer!

zoot:

Well, that's a pretty innocuous question, for something I HAVE to answer.  My middle name is Ann - *without* an E.  It's a family middle name, and for about four generations at least one woman on my mother's side of the family has had that middle name.

@ Craig and Pedro, thanks guys for another brilliant show and blog. I can always count on both of you for an interesting topic or two to discuss, BTW , Ben Mulroney is our homegrown punching bag, and if any outsiders ever tried to give him the gears, I'd box their ears! Have a great weekend, Buh-Bye!
