Survey of the week


We head north of “the dotted line” this week to Vancouver’s “73 CKLG” a Drake formatted station similar to KOL in sound, jingles and “20/20” news offset from typical top-of-the-hour newscasts heard elsewhere.  With C-FUN now out of the teen radio picture, CKLG-AM had the top40 demo to itself at that period of time, and the “Boss Jocks” air team were heavily involved in live remotes, activities & promotions.  Here’s what Vancouver teens were listening to 50 years ago!
