This week, we head north of the “dotted line” to Vancouver BC to see the very first survey from 1410 CKVN a short-lived top40/album-rock hybrid. The station had been once the mighty top40 powerhouse C-FUN, but had gone through a couple of disastrous format flips. The “VN” in the calls stood for ‘Voice of News’ & was one of Canada’s first stations to attempt programming all-news. Top40 CKLG & underground/album-rock CKLG-FM had the city’s rock listeners to themselves. CKVN picked the middle ground & was immediately appealing. Hiring a first-class group of DJs, they hit the air in spring 1970. They lasted 3 or 4 years before gradually returning to all-top40 & even acquired their old C-FUN call letters back! Enjoy! And…we’ll head north again soon whenever I can convince head admin Jason to fuel up the Puget Sound Media SUV for a road-trip!
