About This Blog… and Me Too

The BILLCS Music Blog began in 2009 as the BILLCS Is Tuned-On! blog, and is the online home of the BILLCS Top 30 chart, Bill Smith’s personal chart (formerly the Tuned-On! Top 30), which began in 1998 – yes currently celebrating its 22nd anniversary online!  The blog contains the link and regular posts about the chart, but you’ll also read his views on all things music and entertainment from the past and the present.  There’ll continue to be listings which show Bill’s unique perspective on music and how it got to be what it is today.  Here’s hoping you’ll check in regularly!  The blog has been mentioned in Entertainment Weekly’s Popwatch column and is read and followed by many music industry performers, producers, managers, and tastemakers.


Bill Smith is a historian, researcher, chart phile, former college radio station programmer/manager, author, and most of all, MUSIC FAN, from the Toronto, Ontario, Canada area.   Bill has been following contemporary pop music since age 9 when he began collecting local radio station music charts.  He became a college radio programmer at age 18, managed the station at 20, still graduated from university at 22, wrote two self-published books in his late 20’s… you get the picture. Time out in the 90’s to  start a family didn’t stop Bill from following music.  With the advent of the Internet, personal chart making and connecting with music buffs all over the world started an entirely different revolution.  The BILLCS Music Blog is the latest piece of the evolution!

Bill resides in east Toronto and is the proud father of Ryan and Tori. He is a recently retired human resources manager in the education field.  Bill has contributed to the two editions of the book “The Canadian Pop Music Encyclopedia” by Jaimie Vernon.  Bill is also currently music consultant to a few independent dance music record labels through his business BILLCS Music Projects & Consulting, as well as to the Internet Radio stations Radio GTA and Halton Hills Online, where you will also hear his voice as an announcer. 

Bill contributes his “New Music Pick of the Week” to Planet Radio Canada’s 3D Variety Show, which you can hear between 7 and 7:30 pm EST on Tuesdays.  Radio GTA showcases music from the blog on Wednesday evenings at 10pm EST in the show “The Big 20”.  Bill is also now the announcer for “Your Weekend New Music Mix”, which currently airs on Saturdays and Sundays from Noon to 6pm EST on Radio GTA, and Saturdays and Sundays from 8pm till Midnight EST on Halton Hills Online. You can find links to the affiliate radio stations to the right!

Other projects are currently in the works!
