History

In June 1993, the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) began accepting applications to license new Canadian specialty channels[1] for the first time since 1987.[2] On August 31, 1993, MuchMusic and CITY-TV co-founder Moses Znaimer announced on-air the proposal by CHUM Limited to launch MuchMoreMusic as an adult music/lifestyle channel, quoted as offering music more "familiar, tuneful, [and] melodic" for an audience who "could do with a little less rock and rap and metal".[3] This followed CHUM's earlier application for MuchCountry, a country music channel. "Melodic pop, soft rock, jazz, soul and blues" were to be some of the genres played by MMM; according to MuchMusic, the new channel would be be able to provide such music to the "sizable" portion of its existing audience who enjoyed such softer music but could not find it reliably on MuchMusic.[4] The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC, in French Conseil de la radiodiffusion et des télécommunications canadiennes) was established in 1968 by the Canadian Parliament to replace the Board of Broadcast Governors. ... A specialty channel or specialty service is a television channel, generally not available through conventional broadcast television, which consists of programming focused on a single type or targeted at a specific demographic. ... is the 243rd day of the year (244th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

Moses Znaimer (born 1942) is the founder and was the driving creative force behind Torontos first independent television station, Citytv. ...

For other uses, see Jazz (disambiguation). ... This article is about the novel Soul Music. ... “Blues music” redirects here. ...


At a subsequent February 1994 public hearing, the CRTC reviewed a total of seven applications for music channels, comprising five country music channels, MuchMoreMusic, and CHUM's MusiquExtra, which was to be a French-language adult contemporary counterpart.[5] In a Canadian Press article, commissioner Adrian Burns noted concerns with giving one operator control of multiple music channels; Znaimer, meanwhile, claimed that there was no room for more than one operator of music channels in Canada.[4] In June, the MuchMoreMusic application was denied by the Commission, as well as the MuchCountry and MusiquExtra proposals;[1] out of the seven, the only application approved was Maclean-Hunter and Rawlco Communications' The Country Network, which has since become CMT.[2] Subsequently, the CRTC was criticized for passing only 10 of the 48 total applications.[6] The Canadian Press (CP) is a Canadian news agency established in 1917 as a vehicle to permit Canadian newspapers of the day to exchange their news and information. ... Maclean-Hunter was a Canadian communications company, which had diversified holdings in radio, television, magazines, newspapers and cable television distribution. ...

Then, in January 1996, the next round of licensing began, drawing another 44 applications; CHUM submitted nine of these, including MuchMoreMusic and the French-language adult contemporary channel, now called MusicMax (and later becoming Musimax).[7] The new application, delivered by MuchMusic programmer Denise Donlon on May 8, 1996, incorporated video testimonials by a number of Canadian musicians, including Anne Murray, Bruce Cockburn, Burton Cummings, Celine Dion, David Foster, Lawrence Gowan, Dan Hill, and Marc Jordan, attesting to the need for the channel; Donlon conceded, in a Canadian Press article, that a number of Canadian musicians were no longer filming music videos because MuchMusic was not able to accommodate every music genre equally.[8] On the same day, CHUM also made pitches for Canadian Learning Television and Computer Access, a later rejected computer education channel.[9] MusiMax is a Canadian French language cable television music specialty channel operating out of Montreal, Quebec. ...

Personalities/VJs

MuchMoreMusic does not use the same VJ format as MuchMusic, but does air some hosted programming, and also uses audio-only voiceover announcements of upcoming videos and during programs. A video jockey (usually abbreviated to VJ or sometimes veejay) can mean two things: One describes an announcer who introduces and plays videos on commercial music television such as MTV or VH1. ...


In January 1999, The Globe and Mail critic John Doyle commented on the channel's invariant hosting at the time: "It appears to be staffed by one person only, Jana Lynne White. The woman does everything -- interviews, running down the appalling video chart, promos, everything except come to your house and turn on the TV for you."[11] The channel's early lineup also included the MuchMusic program ClipTrip, transferred to MuchMoreMusic, along with its host Diego Fuentes, the winner of MuchMusic's 1995 VJ search. In May 2000, Bill Welychka also transferred from MuchMusic,[10] to host Freshly Pressed and later The Loop.
