'La Musique' to take Québec music centre stage on new weekly show created by Canadian Satellite Radio

4/27/2005

Canadian Satellite Radio today announced that CSR and its partner XM Satellite Radio Inc. will create a weekly program that showcases Québec & French-Canadian musical talent for broadcast across Canada and the United States.

Hosted by bilingual on-air talent, 'La Musique' will highlight Québec's music in both official languages. In addition to music, the program will also feature exclusive artist interviews, live performances and other special
programming.

"Québec has always had a rich variety of musical talent and that's never been truer than today. There's a good reason why both Spin magazine and the New York Times have declared that Montreal has the hottest music scene in the
world -- the talent. 'La Musique' will be the first-ever dedicated vehicle to bring all that unheard talent to North America," said Stephen Tapp, CSR president and COO.
