SCENE AND HEARD showcases the independent music scene here in Vancouver.

With 24,598+ artists, boasting 111,292+ tracks, the CBC Radio 3 web site is the absolute ultimate authority, and the home, of independent music in Canada. With that massive library along with tools for members (free to join!), we’re taking advantage of what they’ve set up by bringing you a fresh batch of music every week featuring local groups who have tracks (entire albums, even!) on the R3 site.

IT’S THE ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY OF THE VIA PLAYLIST!!!!!

That’s right for 52 straight weeks we’ve been hijacking the CBC Radio 3 playlist creator and asking bands from all over Canada, as well as some of our favourite music industry professionals, to pick some of their favourite Vancouver artists and songs.

In light of the fact that we’ve been leaning heavily on CBC Radio 3 to make fifty-one playlists happen, we asked R3’s DIRECTOR (and VIA Board Member) Steve Pratt to create #52 for us. Click the images below to hear Steve’s picks, and here’s to another 52 awesome weeks of Vancouver Indie music!
