U-Knows Highlights from 1984


The JUNO Awards are tonight.  The JUNOs always make me think about the U-Knows, CFNY's music awards for Canadian independent and alternative acts.  The U-Knows have been called the CASBYs since 1986. Check out this clip of CFNY's Nick Charles celebrating Chalk Circle's 1986 CASBY win.

Mondoville is sharing highlights from the 1984 U-Know Awards  held at the Royal York Hotel in Toronto on April 2, 1984.  The host was Jim Carrey and you'll see the Spoons, Nash The Slash, Sherry Kean, Paul Humphries (Blue Peter), Live Earl Jive & Beverly Hills, Men Without Hats, Peter Noble, Parachute Club, Lorraine Segato, Billy Bryans, Billy Idol and the late BB Gabor.

Great find.  Do you remember the U-Knows?
