CANADIAN MUSIC HISTORY RADIO
Founded by Canadian music industry pioneer, Joey Cee (www.joeycee.com) MAPLE Music Café is a unique new radio station for the 21st Century with an all-Canadian content, all-the-time focus aimed at reaching a worldwide audience. Its unique mandate is not only to present the music of Canadian artists, past, present and future, but to educate and entertain the listener. With the use of today’s technology and communication advances, it seemed the right time to re-group with Canadian music industry professionals and give worldwide audiences the “true stories” of our musical heritage from its earliest beginnings.
To accomplish this, the MMC broadcast team has designed programming that includes all kinds of Canadian music, from one-hit wonders and experimental recordings to be-bop and hip-hop and everything in between. As well as special features about people and events in Canada's great musical heritage.
Above all, the MAPLE Music Café is here to pay homage to the thousands of talented Canadian musicians and industry professionals who have and continue to create wonderful music for our listening pleasure.
MMC: You wont believe your ears.
At MAPLE Music Café we plan on going deep into Canadian Music History and not just typical “Classic Rock” rotation you hear everywhere else.
And as far as Canadian Content, we won’t be as strict as the MAPL guidelines (remember when Bryan Adams didn’t qualify as CanCon? (https://www.cbc.ca/archives/entry/bryan-adams-not-canadian)
The premise of this new station is to expose, educate and support music and artists living in Canada and abroad in all genres and eras.
As an example; Did you know a Canadian, Rolf Kemf wrote “Hello Hooray” by Alice Cooper Band?
Did you know, Zal Yanovsky from Lovin’ Spoonful was born in Toronto?
Or the drummer for Ultravox, Warren Cann was born in Victoria, BC.
Have you heard R.E.M. cover Leonard Cohen?
Or Elvis Presley cover Hank Snow?
MAPLE Music Café will focus on Canadians no matter what genre and from what era as long as the artist(s), writer(s) and/or production are primarily Canadian.
We are also planning on future spotlights on Canadian producers, Bob Ezrin, Bob Rock, and Daniel Lanois, etc.Our aim is to educate and entertain people on the achievements of Canadians in the Business of Music. As long as there is a Canadian involved it qualifies.
Happy to hear any suggestions you may want to contribute as well.
