Thread Name: Paul Mills/Ron Hynes - Congratulations
Subject: RE: Paul Mills/Ron Hynes - Congratulations
Award shows in general are mostly crap, and the Junos ranks high on that pile along with the Grammys. It is all about pandering to the recording industry executives, and trying to drum up support for the garbage that they produce. The ECMA's started out more as peer recognition, although they have gone somewhat downhill in recent years.
It is true that our population is small compared to Toronto but on a per capita basis our music rates as good or better than anything produced there.
Many artists value their ECMA higher than a Juno and I offer my congratulations to Paul and Ron!
