Winners at the 2015 Canadian Music and Broadcast Industry Awards

It’s the biggest industry schmoozefest of the year. And thanks to Jim Beam, there were open bottles of bourbon on every single table. God, I love this business.

If you’re outside the industry, you might find this to be a little inside baseball–or maybe not.  (And hey! This site won something!)
