This Ep: Super Special Pursuit Guest Allan Reid - President & CEO - CARAS, The JUNO Awards & MusiCounts
GA tries hard to act nonchalant and professional as he hosts this week's conversation with Allan Reid. Not only is he the President & CEO of The Canadian Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences, the Music Counts charity & a "little" thing called The JUNO Awards [that's the Canadian equivalent of the Grammy Awards for our non-Canadian friends!] but "AR" used to be THE A&R man ["Artists & repertoire"] at A&M Records [now Universal Music Canada] & was "instrumental" in the careers of artists such as Ashley MacIsaac, Hawksley Workman, Hedley, Sam Roberts, The Tragically Hip, Sarah Harmer & more. He was also responsible for signing...you guessed it, Jann Arden, to a life changing record deal! Big deal...the real question is can this renaissance record man actually help us in the #RelentlessPursuit of Jann Arden?
Listen for the answer to that question along with anecdotes about Jann, Johnny Reid, Gord Bamford & The JUNOS in this all new episode!
Caution: Exceedingly uplifting & excellent episode. Listeners subject to bouts of euphoria & excitement. Musically speaking.
