Superconnected: A Roundtable on Metal in the Polaris Music Prize

6:00pm - 7:00pm

Superconnected is a show where we play new releases, old favourites, and live requests. We dish out some hot takes every now and then. Superconnected airs every Monday at 11:00AM EST on CJLO 1690AM and on demand at cjlo.com. It also airs every Tuesday at 1:00PM AST on CKDU 88.1FM and on demand at ckdu.ca. Superconnected is hosted by Francella Fiallos - try to find me left of the dial!

Great roundtable discussion with Omar Sonics, host of Hooked On Sonics on CJLO, Ricky Castenedo Lorendo from CJSF / CiTR, and Troy Lemberg of CFUV. As four Polaris Music Prize jurors, we discuss why heavy metal hasn't been as represented on the short lists, long lists, and prize winners as other genres. Are there not enough jurors championing this music? What are the preconceptions people have on metal music? And is there enough industry support for Canadian heavy metal?
