This week, we hand the reins over to our sister show, Atlantic Airwaves, for a very special live broadcast from the 2013 East Coast Music Awards weekend in Halifax.
Host Stephanie Domet will count down the Top Ten East Coast Songs of All Time, as selected by voters at CBCMusic.ca.
The songs will be performed live by artists like Maureen Ennis, Jimmy Rankin, George Canyon, Jenn Grant, and Ben Caplan.
The Top Ten has been revealed, and you can view the list here.
But which Atlantic Canadian classic will top the charts as number one? You'll have to listen to find out.
Because this is a live show, it will only be heard during our CBC Radio One broadcast. It will be on the air at the usual time, 5:35 PM, half an hour earlier in Labrador.Read more »

If you go back to the early 1990s, to names like the Irish Descendants and Thomas Trio and the Red Albino, you can use the East Coast Music Awards to track changing fashions in Newfoundland and Labrador music, year over year.
It's far from definitive, but the list of nominees provides a glimpse of how our music is viewed by the insiders and industry professionals who vote on the awards.
The 2013 ECMA weekend kicks off Wednesday, March 6 in Halifax, and that's our focus for the next two weeks.
On Saturday, March 2, the Performance Hour checks in on the Newfoundland and Labrador challengers who are heading off to this year's extravaganza.
The 2013 ECMA idols from this province include Repartee, The Once, Chris Kirby, the Long Distance Runners, and the Dardanelles. We'll hear them and a whole lot more.
Stephanie Domet hosts a one-hour special from Halifax, featuring artists like George Canyon, Jenn Grant, Jimmy Rankin and Maureen Ennis.Read more »

It's a fun ride that begins with early childhood memories of her Cockney parent's vinyl record collection. There she unearths a Noel Coward classic plus a rousing sing along version of "We are Soldiers of The Queen" by The Chelsea Pensioners. Adolescent years are informed by iconic performances from Billy Bragg, The Thomas Trio and The Red Albion and every young girls Diva - Annie Lennox. We'll hear soundtracks from two St. John's composers and come full circle as plans take shape for her parents 50th wedding anniversary.
