DAVE SHAFER CKLW Windsor, Ont. February 2, 1965
Long before the Big Eight, CKLW was Radio 8-0.
It was 1965, and the Happy
Fellas ruled the 800 spot on the Windsor-Detroit dial. Jocks like Bud
Davies, Joe Van, Dave Shafer, Ron Knowles and Tom Shannon could not only be
heard on the air, but could be seen and heard at one of many 'CK Record
Hops. And when the jocks weren't talking, the music was rockin' at Radio
Thanks to Charlie O'Brien for this great aircheck!
