When I asked this group to go forth and let the country know how you feel about Phog Lounge…tell CBC Radio 3 and Searchlight that you love this place…you did, emphatically!
And we’re very thankful.
Here’s the tricky part.
That was just to get us nominated.
NOW, they have the voting taking place.
It’s been running (so we’re behind) and it will continue for a few weeks. Each person can vote every 24 hours.
You know how it is. I don’t quite agree with this method, but that’s how it is being tallied. It calls for great attention from voters. From you.
But I will ask anyway.
Please vote for us on the cbcradio3.com website.
There’s a an ad panel (usually on the bottom left) that says, “Vote Now For Your Favourite Music Venue” with a Searchlight logo on it too. It’s black with yellow lettering. Click on that, find Phog Lounge in the list, and simply click our name and click the vote button at the bottom.
The more you do this, the more realistic the chances are of us winning.
WE’RE VERY FAR BEHIND. Here’s the timeline:
Wednesday, January 28: Searchlight long list announced and voting begins at http://www.cbcradio3.com
Tuesday, February 3: Top 50 will be announced
Wednesday, February 11: Top 20 will be announced
Wednesday, February 18: Top 10 will be announced
Wednesday, February 25: Final winner will be announced
You see, when you made your voices heard earlier, you shocked the CBC Radio 3 people. Shocked them. And now they’re telling me to tell you, THIS is what counts. You want to see Phog win this thing from the cliche behemoths that are always mentioned in live music? Vote now. Vote often.
Maybe I’ll try reminding you without being annoying.
Winners get to SAY they are the best live music venue in Canada, which is pretty outstanding , a live concert will be presented by CBC Radio 3 in the winning venue, a Sirius satellite radio plus subscription gets installed, CBC Radio 3 clothing, etc for staff along with the hardware – a winning plaque and trophy – are delivered.
Please make this happen.
