|SCENE AND HEARD showcases the independent music scene here in Vancouver.
With over 36,000+ artists, boasting more than 140,000+ tracks, the CBC Music/CBC Radio 3 web site is the absolute ultimate authority, and the home, of independent music in Canada. With that massive library along with tools for members (free to join!), we’re taking advantage of what they’ve set up by bringing you a fresh batch of music every week featuring local groups who have tracks (entire albums, even!) on the R3 site.
I can’t believe this is our 200th playlist!!! I thought I’d do a special playlist for Timmy’s Christmas Telethon, which is happening this Sunday, and I (Christine) will be co-hosting part of the social media desk at 8pm.
The telethon runs from 4pm to 10pm on December 8th on Shaw and will include stories, guest hosts, great incentives and entertainment from: Dominique Fricot, Headwater, Hilary Grist, Jet Tangerine, Mark Sullivan, The Jardines, The Pompadoors, and the VOC Sweet Soul Gospel Choir – several of which you can find in the playlist below.
All of this is to support the BC Lions Society for Children with Disabilities – and you can read more about the telethon by clicking here.
So tune in on Sunday, and send me a tweet at #TimmysTelethon and/or @TimmysTelethon – and click the images below to hear the playlist!
