New Rehearsal Space - Ottawa Musicians

Check out this CBC spotlight on newly opened rehearsal studios Record Runner Rehearsal Studios, and discussion about the need for live music spaces in Ottawa, featuring Ottawa Music Industry Coalition's Andrew Vincent.

"A familiar old name from the city's musical past has been resurrected in the form of a much-needed rehearsal space, giving Ottawa musicians hope that the local scene can press rewind to a livelier time for live performance. Record Runner Rehearsal Studios opened two months ago on Colonnade Road S. in Nepean.If that name rings a bell, it's because it was also the name of a beloved independent record store on Rideau Street that closed down a decade ago. Jim McCraken owned the store, and said he's happy to have the same name over the door of the new rehearsal studio."
