It’s Nice to Win an Award – S07E24

It’s with great surprise to have won an award from the Canadian Weblog Awards by Ninjamatics. In honesty, I did not expect to get through the shortlist and then getting the top spot for Best Weblog About Music. It was awesome getting kind messages from friends with a congratulation. I never expect to do a good job blogging but lacked the confidence in being positive to bringing my blog forward. All in all, it’s nice that the awards is not based on popularity, it’s based on the quality and accessibility. I do forget that I do provide excellent content in terms of audio. I got to thank the jury for their extra hard work and judging on all the blogs that competed. There are a lot of excellent blogs throughout Canada.
If CKCU-FM wasn’t a big supporter, this blog wouldn’t get far with the contents I provide and I wouldn’t be able to showcase Canadian indie and local talent as the Internet has become beneficial to music and how shifts in traditional media is getting weeded out because social media is giving musicians and bands a better avenue to showcase their materials.
I should thank a lot of people for their support; Nat & Marie, the CKCU-FM staff, hosts & volunteers, CHUO-FM shows like Now Playing, Ivory Antenna, & Best In British Music, Gloria Song, Candice So, Alan Neal, CBC Radio 3 fans and hosts, Strombo (not writing his full name), the two Brian’s, and various Canadian indie musicians & bands. The Ottawa Twitter people I’ve met and there’s a whole bunch to list that I can think of.
Apology on the photo as it doesn’t have a link to the blog entry. I could explain that it’s the Year of the Dragon and the dragon is considered to be lucky and powerful. Hence, the luck I’ve been getting from the MOO cards to this award.
I will continue to bring the best on my blog.

The Feb. 1st Radio Show
As for the radio show, I began the show with a epilogue to NBC’s Chuck. I decided to play Rivers and Roads by The Head and the Heart because the scene at the end was poignant and sad as the TV show ended its 5 year run. At the last minute prior to my show, I added another song played on Chuck, it’s by the Ghost Society and the song’s called Your Hands. I will post the video clips from below. I really miss the show.
Also on the radio show was playing two Lana Del Rey songs as her album, Born To Die got released and has created buzz as it’s topping the charts in various countries on iTunes.
Don’t forget to check the playlist over at this link. The Wild 10 Countdown summary is posted at this link.
