Canadian Internet Radio Take-over

Indie Love Radio

By Melissa Bessey

When we think of Canadian independent music, visions of unknown garage bands and seedy bars come to mind. With the dawn of Internet radio, one group of Toronto locals is paving the way to brighten the future for Canadian independent musicians of all genres. Born July 1, 2007, Indie Love Radio launched an Internet station with a mandate to provide 100% Canadian, independent content and has been making waves right from the word go. Upon launching, MTV Canada featured the station on their show e2, which immediately increased listenership, but the team at the station is doing much more to create a buzz. Indie Love is not just a voice on the Internet; they strongly believe in supporting their artists through live performances and have done a series of weekly shows called Indie Love Live at Toronto’s Cadillac Lounge on Queen Street West. The station also supports bands by throwing CD release parties and is gearing up for Indie Love Fest which is rumoured to become a regular, seasonal music festival.

Since its inception, Indie Love has received more than 1,000 submissions from artists across the nation and continues to receive new music every day. On any given day you can be sure to hear a plethora of indie folk and rock music but daily shows also feature genres ranging from country to hip hop to electronica and everything in between. One station staple is the Sunday night Freak Show with Zeke, where you can tune in from 6-10pm, for a healthy dose of metal. Check them out at indielove.ca.
