Sarah Burke here from SiriusXM Canada.

I’m so excited to launch a new weekly show on SiriusXM Channel #359, North Americana.  I’ll be your host for Sunday Service.  We will gather every Sunday in the name of Americana Music, to both worship our founders, and preach about new artists that you need to know.

It’s a look at the week that was in Americana music, and Sunday IS the day of rest, so let me provide the soundtrack.

According to EU’s Advocate General, All Uncleared Sampling is Copyright Infringement

[caption id="attachment_201459" align="aligncenter" width="400"] Flag of the European Union[/caption]The EO's Advocate General has weighed in on the use of uncleared sampling. For Maciej Szpunar, any uncleared sample of any duration counts as infringement. He notes:“Sampling (generally) involves the direct and permanent reproduction, by digital means and in digital form, of a portion or sample of a phonogram.  It, therefore, seems to be quite clear that that act amounts to an infringement of the right of the producers of the phonogram in question to [authorize] or prohibit such a reproduction made without their permission.”The situation that sparked this event originated when music producer Moses Pelham used a two-s

Streaming Shows Finally Overtake Cable, Broadcast

In what seems like an inevitable first, FX's annual report on the number of scripted TV originals revealed that there were more streaming shows than those on basic cable and broadcast over the last year, highlighting the true extent of the streaming revolution.The numbers revealed that, of 495 scripted originals airing in 2018, 160 aired on streaming services.

The last 45 shows aired on pay cable.The report highlights further that streaming shows account for about one-third of all scripted originals, increasing from 117 last year. Broadcast dropped from 153 last year.

Catch the 2018 World Juniors on SiriusXM over the holidays

It must be the Holiday Season, as one of the best hockey tournaments on the calendar is set to get underway in beautiful British Columbia.

The 2019 IIHF World Junior Hockey Championships are in Vancouver, and Victoria this time around, and the action gets underway on December 26th, when the United States face Slovakia, and Canada clashes with Denmark.

SiriusXM will air the Canadian, and American, games, as well as the medal round games on Canada Talks and NHL Network Radio.  The full schedule is listed below.

Ten teams will vie for the crown, with Canada looking to defend its title.  They downed Sweden 3-1 in the Gold Medal Game last year in Buffalo.  It was Canada’s 17th Gold Medal, which puts them on top the leader board.  The Russians are next with 13 Championships, though they

NHL Network Radio Presents Simmer’s 31 in 31: The Blur

The zany nature of attending 31 NHL games in 31 cities in 31 days was exemplified by my schedule this past weekend. I co-hosted Friday’s edition of “Stellick and Simmer” from the Philadelphia Flyers practice rink in Voorheis, New Jersey, after seeing the Flyers host the Columbus Blue Jackets the night before. That show ended at 10 am, I packed up my equipment and left. Twenty-six hours later I was in Buffalo, New York sitting down to watch the Flyers play the Sabres in a 1 o’clock Saturday matinee.

Between those two moments or events, I briefly slept Friday night in Winnipeg, Manitoba after watching the St. Louis Blues defeat the Jets one-nothing.

Seems like compressed madness, which it is; but it was also a very memorable visit to the ‘Peg. I had a pleasant chat with Jets GM Kevin Chevaldayoff, who I had seen briefly at Madison Square Garden the previous Sunday, I took a selfie with Darren Pang, who I had run into twice before, including

[caption id="attachment_200705" align="aligncenter" width="286"] Sam Cooke with neighbor friend Aretha Franklin[/caption]On this site, I have written about SO many music celebrities and industry deaths I've lost count. For some reason, Aretha Franklin's death was the hardest hitting. She was not only the Queen of Soul she was an American institution. While doing some reading on her, I discovered there was also once a "King of Soul," Sam Cooke.Cooke died tragically on December 11, 1964, at the age of 33. Cooke rescued himself from what he considered to be financial insolvency by leaving the Gospel industry, an industry that even in 2018 is still reputed to be outrageously frugal, for the more generous and profitable secular music industry. He admitted to Dick Clark when posed with the question, "Why did you leave Gospel?" responding "For financi
