Highlights for 2002/2003 Season.
EDGETV takes new rock to the next level with innovative interactive software
that gives its viewers the power to choose. Say goodbye to those so-called
all-request hours where your all-time fave never seems to make the cut. With
EdgeDJ, viewers can become a guest DJ by logging onto
www.edgetv.ca and submitting by e-mail,
their own 30-minute show, complete with video selection, introductions and
commentary. Viewers can also cast their vote for the next video to air and pick
their favourite interview clip. Stay tuned for more details.
In addition to the interactive “programmed by you” features, viewers can witness
brand new concerts including the explosive stage show of punk-funk group RED HOT
CHILI PEPPERS at their Live in the USA concert. The Live At The Astoria concerts
continue with a series of shows that include the darkly hysterical MUSE,
Ireland’s punk pop trio ASH, and hardcore pioneers EMBRACE, among others.
Edge TV also shows off talent closer to home with Toronto’s annual North By
North East (NXNE), which showcases many soon-to-be-famous names. EdgeTV also
covers the CASBYs (Canadian Artists Selected By You) awards show, which gives
the most street credibility to the best in the Canadian music business.

credibility. EdgeTV presents the highlights of the awards show.
