AIRCHECK OF THE WEEK

Edition #841

BOBBY STEELE
CHLO ST. THOMAS, ONT.
JULY 14, 1968 (UNSCOPED)

He was southwestern Ontario's Man of Steele.

Bobby Steele got his start in radio as a teenager at CHLO St. Thomas in 1968. The LO in the call letters stood for London, Ontario, which is exactly where Steele went - at CKSL and CFPL - after a stop at Hamilton's CKOC in the early '70s. Steele also jocked at CFRA Ottawa before going into teaching in the early '80s.

Enjoy Bobby Steele on CHLO from July 14, 1968  (UNSCOPED) ... in the Aircheck of the Week!

Thanks to Charlie Ritenburg for another great aircheck!
