NBC - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

NBC - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: "NBC, the National Broadcasting Company, is an American television and radio network based in New York City's Rockefeller Center. It is sometimes referred to as the Peacock Network due to its stylized peacock logo. The network is now part of the media conglomerate NBC Universal and supplies programming to more than 200 affiliated U.S. stations. NBC Universal is a unit of General Electric.

It is the last U.S. network holding company to legally abandon the name behind its acronym; in 2003, the corporate name was shrunk from 'National Broadcasting Company, Inc.' as it had been from 1926 to 'NBC Universal, Inc.' following a merger with French Vivendi Universal's Entertainment division in 2004. NBC still uses the full name during occasional broadcasts, such as its coverage of the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. (ABC still occasionally uses American Broadcasting Company or Companies for some copyrights and on-air branding.)"

National Public Radio - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

National Public Radio - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: "National Public Radio (NPR) is an independent, private, not-for-profit membership organization of public radio stations in the United States. NPR was created in 1970, following the passage of the Public Broadcasting Act of 1967 which established the Corporation for Public Broadcasting and also led to the creation of the Public Broadcasting Service. The network was founded on February 26, 1970, headed by Robert Conley with a partnership of talented journalists, with 30 employees and 90 public radio stations as charter members.

Like its competitors, American Public Media and Public Radio International, NPR produces and distributes news and cultural programming. Its member stations are not required to broadcast all of these programs and most public radio stations broadcast programs from all three providers. Its flagship programs are two drive time news broadcasts, Morning Edition, and the afternoon All Things Considered; both are carried by nearly all NPR affiliates and in 2002 were the second- and third-most popular radio programs in the country. Morning Edition has been the network's most popular program since 1979."

Jazz - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Jazz - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: "Jazz is an original American musical art form originating around the early 1920s in New Orleans, rooted in Western music technique and theory, and is marked by the profound cultural contributions of African Americans. It is characterized by blue notes, syncopation, swing, call and response, polyrhythms, and improvisation. Jazz has been described as 'America's Classical Music', and started in saloons throughout the nation."

European classical music - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

European classical music - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: "Classical music is a broad, somewhat imprecise term, referring to music produced in, or rooted in the traditions of, European art, ecclesiastical and concert music, encompassing a broad period from roughly 1000 to the present day. The central norms of this tradition, according to one school of thought, developed between 1550 and 1825, focusing on what is known as the common practice period.

The term classical music did not appear until the early 19th century, in an attempt to 'canonize' the period from Bach to Beethoven as an era in music parallel to the golden age of sculpture, architecture and art of classical antiquity, (from which of course no music has directly survived). The earliest reference to 'classical music' recorded by the Oxford English Dictionary is from about 1836. Since that time the term has developed in common parlance as a simple opposite to popular music"

Its programming focus is on arts and culture, primarily consisting of programs devoted to opera, classical music and jazz, although some programming devoted to Canadian pop and indie rock music also airs.

The CBC's FM network was launched in 1946, but was strictly a simulcast of the AM radio network until 1960. In that year, distinct programming on the FM network was launched for the first time. This was briefly discontinued in 1962, but resumed again in 1964.

In 1975, the FM network was rebranded CBC Stereo, to distinguish it from the AM network, known as CBC Radio. However, in the 1990s many of the old AM stations moved to FM as well, so in 1997 the CBC rebranded the networks as the current CBC Radio One and CBC Radio Two.

Radio Two is not as widely available across Canada as Radio One. While Radio One is available in most communities across Canada regardless of size, Radio Two for the most part is available only in larger cities. Radio Two also has a more consistent national schedule than Radio One, with only one and a half hours each week devoted to distinct regional programming. Regional programming primarily consists of a weekly arts magazine which airs on Sunday afternoons at noon, and a daily calendar of local arts"

The OHL Arena & Travel Guide - Maple Leaf Gardens, Toronto Marlboros

The OHL Arena & Travel Guide - Maple Leaf Gardens, Toronto Marlboros: "Maple Leaf Gardens was once called the most important religious building in English Canada. This may seem an exaggeration, but it shows the status of hockey in Canada. Every year it was the Leafs in their Gardens versus the Habs in their Forum. Two solitudes, two arenas, one game.

That's all gone now. The Leafs left in 1999 for the spiffy but boring Air Canada Centre. However, two of their tenants remained for another season: the Toronto Rock lacrosse team and the Majors."
