This week we head north of the “dotted line” to Vancouver’s 1410 C-FUN, that city’s second contender in the top40 wars for teen listeners. From 1960-67, the station played the charted hits & offered some of the best talent on the west coast led by Vancouver radio legend Red Robinson. C-FUN’s big disadvantage was their puny 1,000 watt signal that had a hard time reaching around all those corners & up/down hills in the city & Fraser Valley. Within 2 years of it’s launch, the rock underdog would unseat Vancouver’s first top40 – 1130 CKWX (with it’s mighty 50,000 watt clear channel signal) as the reigning champ. However, C-FUN met it’s match when 730 CKLG switched to top40 in Aug. ’64. ‘LG had a much bigger signal (10 kW) & a crack team of DJs, plenty of remotes & live promotions. Within 3 years, C-FUN would call it quits, switch format to MOR & concede to “73CKLG”. After a call letter change & a few failed format tries, C-FUN would once again regain the call letters & relaunch as a top40 in 1973. Now with 50,000 watts, the station had a long run of success until changes in listener habits & the competitive Vancouver market would force C-FUN to finally give up in 2007.
