Thread Name: Paul Mills/Ron Hynes - Congratulations
Subject: RE: Paul Mills/Ron Hynes - Congratulations
Congratulations are certainly due. Wonderful Grand Album.
Just a slight clarification--the Canadian equivalent of the Grammies is the Junos (an award named after a bureaucrat, but for a very good reason--Pierre Juneau was responsible for the mandating that Canadian radio stations play 30% Canadian content, which led directly to the creation and development of a thriving homegrown Canadian music industry). The ECMA's are a regional showcase and awards ceremony, and celebrating as they do the best part of the country, are well known to be the best PARTY in the country. Which obviously Paul Mills was not at, being busy organizing Rick's bash and whatever. Double kudos to Paul for this huge sacrifice.
