I know what you mean! Even within Canada, alot of people who listen to
pop/alternative/whatever music, haven't heard of the east coast names.
Probably more true the farther west you go. They sure don't get ANY radio
play here! And (i dont know about lately) Much Music doesn't give them
enough vidio play. Maybe if we all sent e-mail to Much Music that we would
like to see more East Coast music from them they would boost it. Or at
least mention that 250+ people e-mailed to hear more sloan! What do you
guys think??
