CBC Radio 3 has just announced the winners of the second annual Bucky Awards Ã¢â‚¬â€œ CBC Radio 3’s awards honoring Canadian music and musicians Ã¢â‚¬â€œ and kudos to the Joel Plaskett Emergency for winning two awards!
Joel Plaskett took home Ã¢â‚¬Å“Best FalsettoÃ¢â‚¬Â? and in the brand new R3TV video category, the Joel Plaskett Emergency picked up the award for Best Video for Ã¢â‚¬Å“Fashionable PeopleÃ¢â‚¬Â?,
“I’d like to thank my wife for having put up with hearing my songs,Ã¢â‚¬Â? said Plaskett as he accepted the award, Ã¢â‚¬Å“which is probably pretty annoying, especially with a song like Ã¢â‚¬ËœFashionable People.Ã¢â‚¬â„¢”
The Bucky Awards honor music released from autumn 2006-autumn 2007. And unlike many other music awards, which are decided based on record sales or expert juries, the winners of the Buckys were chosen entirely by CBC Radio 3 listeners.
The gala ceremony aired this afternoon on CBC Radio 3 web radio (www.cbcradio3.com), and a special edition Bucky Awards podcast and Bucky Awards video podcast are now available for download.
