Two CBC Bucky Award Wins!

CBC Radio 3 has just announced the winners of the second annual Bucky Awards – CBC Radio 3’s awards honoring Canadian music and musicians – and kudos to the Joel Plaskett Emergency for winning two awards!

Joel Plaskett took home “Best Falsetto� and in the brand new R3TV video category, the Joel Plaskett Emergency picked up the award for Best Video for “Fashionable People�,

“I’d like to thank my wife for having put up with hearing my songs,â€Â? said Plaskett as he accepted the award, “which is probably pretty annoying, especially with a song like ‘Fashionable People.’”

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 (, and a special edition Bucky Awards podcast and Bucky Awards video podcast are now available for download.
