acts performing

-City Building in Toronto, but audiences often spilled out onto Queen Street West, and on warm days the windows to the studio were opened, with some acts performing outside. It was also not uncommon for dancers to be stationed on the CHUM-City rooftop or even on rooftops of buildings across the street, effectively making the surrounding neighbourhood part of the set. Most music played was pre-recorded but live acts also were invited on some shows, and in the 1990s guest deejays were also featured. The show was hosted by Monika Deol until 1996, along with Michael Williams, followed by George Lagogianes, and also featured dancing floor director MC Craig F. (Craig Halket of Combat Des Clips on MuchMusic.) After that, a rotation of various hosts took over. The show was an hour and a half, until 2001, when it shortened to just an hour long. Two concerts were hosted annually. One at Canada's Wonderland, during the summer and another in the winter, at Winterlude in Ottawa.

The history of Toronto began in the late 18th century when the British Crown (The Crown) purchased (Toronto Purchase) its land from the Mississaugas of the New Credit (Mississaugas of the New Credit First Nation). The settlement established there became York (York, Upper Canada), which lieutenant governor (Lieutenant Governor of Upper Canada) John Graves Simcoe designated as the capital of Upper Canada. The city was ransacked in the Battle of York during the War of 1812. In 1834, York became a city and renamed (Name of Toronto) to Toronto. It was damaged in two huge fires in 1849 (Great Fire of Toronto (1849)) and 1904 (Great Fire of Toronto (1904)). Since 1954, the city occasionally expanded its borders through amalgamation (Amalgamation of Toronto) with surrounding municipalities, most recently occurring in 1998. This process has left Toronto with clearly defined neighbourhood (list of neighbourhoods in Toronto)s that have retained their distinctive nature, earning it the nickname the "City of Neighbourhoods".
