Deconstructing X - March 14

Something that's occurring more often today are what's called living funerals or living tributes...before a person dies. The gathering becomes a stage for people to share memories, sometimes songs, poems and lifetime achievement awards that express: thank you, I love you, I’ll remember you. And goodbye.

On this episode, we are gathered here to celebrate the life and pending demise of a 35 year old Canadian cultural icon. An endeavour described as “live, gloriously unpredictable, seat-of-the-pants TV” that was “delivered fresh daily to an entire generation of Canadians.”

I'm talking about Much Music.

Last week it was reported that the Nation's Music Station is now down to airing a lone, one-hour block of videos at lunch time. The writing is on the wall. YouTube has killed the Video Star.

So on the show tonight we are going to celebrate the life and times of Much Music.
