Circle March 30th of this year on your electronic device. That's when this year's Juno Awards show will take place in Winnipeg, Manitoba.

The awards began in the early seventies and were put in place to honour outstanding musical achievements by Canadian artists and record makers.

At first, the awards limped along, propped up by aging U.S. has-beens with tenuous Canadian ties and aided by the usual suspects such as Anne Murray, Gordon Lightfoot and Tommy Hunter.

But, over the years, as the Canadian music scene (aided in no small part by stringent Canadian music content laws for radio stations) strengthened and matured, more and more truly home grown and home based stars began to emerge and now the "locals" dominate the proceedings.

For instance, the group of the year nominations include Arcade Fire, Blue Rodeo, Hedley, Tegan and Sara, and Walk off the Earth.

From here in the wilds of untamed Saskatchewan, Regina group Rah Rah are up for the alternative album of the year award, and Saskatoon's Sheepdogs could take home the Juno for video of the year.

Also, Kevin and Kane from Moose Jaw could walk off the stage with Junos for recording engineer(s) of the year.

Tegan and Sara, Serena Ryder and Robin Thicke are among the stars slated to perform during the show.

March 30th. Juno Time in Canada.
