The guys at andPOP Radio are certainly casanovas, but occasionally they even need help. This is true especially when it comes to picking up older women – Jordan, Chris and Dan just don’t have that magic touch. This was demonstrated on a recent outing where all three tried to pick up mature ladies. Have a look at the results, and thank goodness for CougarLife.com!
XM Radio Canada will host the Independent Music Awards and open their recording studio for live-to-air sets by some up-and-coming bands in Canada, all in support of Canadian Music Week (CMW) taking place on March 11 through March 14.
“This is the fourth year XM Canada and CMW have teamed up for the Independent Music Awards,” said Neill Dixon, President of Canadian Music Week, in a statement. “XM Canada’s continued support during CMW has helped foster and showcase great Canadian musicians looking to break-through in the saturated music industry.”
Music lovers can listen to Canadian bands like Arkells, USS, Hey Rosetta!, Crystal Castles among others live when XM brings The Independent Music Awards live-to-air on March 14. The event will be broadcast from the Royal York Hotel on The Verge (XM Canada’s rock channel 87).
XM Canada will also be opening up its recording studio on Avenue Road in Toronto, to invite Canadian artists to perform acoustic sets live-to-air. The satellite radio company expects to broadcast around 30 Canadian bands over the span of 2 days.
In a move that will create a combined enterprise of approximately $13-billion, Sirius Satellite Radio and XM Satellite Radio have announced today an all-stock merger, combining the two satellite companies.
“We are excited for the many opportunities that an XM and Sirius combination will provide consumers,” said Gary Parsons, Chairman of XM Satellite Radio, and Hugh Panero, CEO of XM Satellite Radio, in a joint statement.
The deal is not yet finalized as it is still pending approval by Sirius and XM shareholders, regulatory reviews and the FCC.
Sirius delivers more than 130 channels with 69 commercial-free music channels. SIRIUS also offers sporting channels with partnerships with the NFL, Nascar, NBA and NHL.
Sirius also boasts the king of shock rock radio, Howard Stern.
XM is currently the number one satellite radio provider with more than 7.6 million subscribers and studios all over the United States and Canada. XM delivers 170 digital channels and has strong partnerships in the automobile industry.
There are currently no details on the structure of the partnership, or even the name the new company will operate under.
