TOM LUCAS
CFUN VANCOUVER
AUGUST 29, 1976 (UNSCOPED)

Tom Lucas takes us back to the time of platform shoes, mood rings and great Top 40 radio.

This 1976 aircheck of CFUN showcases Vancouver station around the height of its success as a hit music station. With jocks like Lucas, Jim Hault, Russ McCloud, Daryl B, Fred Latremouille and Bob Magee, CFUN didn't have a weak spot in the mid-'70s. The rivalry with CKLG was fierce and the competition made both stations better. CFUN was one of about a dozen stations Lucas jocked at during a more than four-decade radio career. One of his stops was Hamilton's CKOC, which will be ending nearly 55 years as a hit music station September 7.

Enjoy Tom Lucas on CFUN from August 29, 1976 (UNSCOPED) ... in the Aircheck of the Week!

Thanks to Bill Dulmage for this great aircheck!
