AIRCHECK OF THE WEEK Edition #834 May 17, 2015 DON PERCY CFRW WINNIPEG MAY 4, 2004 (UNSCOPED)
The Master of the Morning retired from full-time radio earlier this year after 58-and-a-half years in the business, and we're looking back.
Don Percy was only 19 years old when he got his radio start at CFCO Chatham, Ont., in the summer of 1956. After a year there, he moved to mornings at CHOK, where he got his first big break - the morning show at the Sarnia, Ont., station. Percy would spend most of the rest of his career in mornings, working in top markets such as Winnipeg, Edmonton, Vancouver and Toronto. About half of his time was in the 'Peg, including his final stop at CJWL (The Jewel), signing off his last regular show on January 19 of this year.
Enjoy Don Percy's first show on CFRW Winnipeg from May 4, 2004 (UNSCOPED) ... in the Aircheck of the Week!
Thanks to Doug Thompson in the CHUM Archives for this great aircheck!
