AIRCHECK OF THE WEEK

Edition #938 - May 21, 2017

J. MICHAEL WILSON
CHUM Toronto
June 9, 1970 (UNSCOPED)

We're celebrating not one but two major radio anniversaries!

On Saturday, CHUM is celebrating its 60th anniversary as a rock 'n' roll station. At 6 a.m. on May 27, 1957, Phil Ladd cued up "All Shook Up" and the CHUM era began. Since then, many of North America's top air talents have sat behind the 1050 CHUM mic including international superstars like Dick Clark and Wolfman Jack, and too many CAB Hall of Famers to list here. This aircheck, from about halfway through CHUM's Top 40 era, shows what 1050 was all about!

Enjoy J. Michael Wilson on CHUM from June 9, 1970 (UNSCOPED & SCOPED)
... in the Aircheck of the Week!

JOHN RODE
CILQ-FM (Q-107) TORONTO
May 22, 1977 (UNSCOPED)

1050 CHUM isn't the only radio station celebrating a big anniversary this week. Toronto's Q-107 (CILQ-FM) is 40 years old, having launched at 1:07 p.m. on May 22, 1977. John Rode was the first jock, and the rest of the air staff at the beginning included Murray Smith, Dave Charles, John Donabie, Mary-Anne Carpentier and Scott Marwood.

Enjoy John Rode with the Launch of Q-107 (UNSCOPED) ... in the Aircheck of the Week!

Thanks to Bill Dulmage for both of these great airchecks!
