The U-Knows were a Canadian award for independent and alternative music, initiated by Toronto radio station CFNY in 1981.

In 1986, the station held a contest to rename the awards, which became the CASBY Awards that year.

 CFNY   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-06)
The station was particularly well respected for introducing new acts which other stations wouldn't play because they were too small -- in the early 1980s, Canadian artists such as Martha and the Muffins, Rough Trade, Blue Rodeo, Jane Siberry, 54-40 and Spoons were among the acts championed by CFNY.
CFNY also created Canada's first independent music awards, the U-Knows (a pun on Canada's mainstream Juno Awards).
In 1986, the station held a listener contest to rename the awards, which were redubbed the CASBY Awards, for "Canadian Artists Selected By You."

 Bambooweb: Music of Canada
The Juno Awards were first held in 1971, partially as an attempt to revitalize the Canadian pop industry.
Instead, the CBC was awarded 99.1 to move its existing Radio One station from the AM band -- and, ominously, this was believed at the time to be the last available FM frequency in the city.
Then, in 1998, Rascalz refused the Juno Award for Best Rap Recording, citing that the award was presented during the non-televised portion of the ceremony along with the technical awards.
