Through most of the new millennium, JBNBlog has tried to track the London/Western/Fanshawe/OIART etc. Juno noms . . . turns out Fanshawe MIA grad George Seara’s 2012 nom & win (yay!) was missed. My bad. Belated big cheers.

Thanks to help from Fanshawe MIA  and the college’s corporate communications team, here’s what we’re calling an excellent (partial)list of this year’s nominees & Juno noms & winners from previous years. (OIART sent a 2013 noms list earlier. Thanks to all involved).

Wow.

Now, what are the five 2013  nominated records George Seara worked on — anybody know? Any other Fanshawe connections? Western? Anybody else . . .  JBNBlog would love to know & share the good news.

Good luck in Saskatchewan to all the Londonetc. tied nominees. Yay. Again.

The Juno producer of the year award is named for the late Jack Richardson with the first with that honour  being handed out in 2002.

Here is a bit of my LFP story from an interview with Jack Richardson on or about Oct. 2, 2001:

Canadian music hall of famer and legendary Guess Who producer Jack Richardson has never won a Juno for production.

But from now on, he won’t have to win a Juno to get his name on the award. A Juno is going to be named after him.

Richardson, 72, of London, was honoured yesterday by the Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (CARAS), as the first person to have a Juno Award named after him. The best-producer Juno will now be called the Jack Richardson Producer Award.

“Shock, literally shock. I was absolutely speechless when I heard,” Richardson said (Oct. 2, 2001) when the CARAS honour became public.

He had learned of it in August from his son, Garth Richardson, who’s also a successful record producer, for such acts as Rage Against the Machine and the London metal band Kittie.

“You have some retrospect on it,” Jack Richardson says of the way the news has settled in. “What really impresses me most is, it’s something that happened when I’m still alive.”

. . . & now over to MIA & Fanshawe, where Jack Richardson inspired & inspires so many for their details:

    James, even though his last name isn’t Good, John Allen was a member of the Good Brothers for most of their 8 wins…does he count?

    A Good point … ahem … tee hee. Seriously, absolutely yep. Plus John P. Allen also has a share of all those Prairie Oyster prizes.
