The Who A to Z on Q 107 May 1980 Plus Some CKFM and CJCL

Have just uploaded an excellent quality clip of Jim Bauer on Q 107 playing the Who alphabetically. Fantastic music and a long air check from a creative time for Q.

The Who A to Z Q107 May 1980

Plus a holiday bonus, some XMAS time programming from the "music of your life" days at CJCL ( Not sure who the first announcer is or even the station and is the second announcer Tom Fulton ?). Also little snippets from a 1984 countdown show on CKFM with I believe Dani Elwell uploaded to the Radio Miscellany section.

I think the second announcer on the CJCL file is Rob Cowan.

It doesn't sound like Tom. The voice doesn't sound familiar at all.

In the link it mentions the creativity of programming and shows such as a jazz program. It's important to remember that much of that creativity was to satisfy the regulations at the time which required FM stations to carry certain number of hours of specialty music programming, backgrounders and other spoken word elements.  Programs such as Q Jazz, the comedy hour, Six O'Clock Rock Report, Barometer, the previously mentioned Chickenman and more were there to fulfill those requirements. Naturally, the truly gifted programmers and air talent knew how to make it all interesting for the average listener and it allowed creative people to shine. As deregulation was phased in over the years, the need for creative and original programming eroded to what we have today. Many on this board and in the industry are saying they pine for creativity and originality again but it was those CRTC regs that ensured that kind of programming. After perpetual lobbying, station programmers and owners got what they wanted. Perhaps a case in point of bed careful what you wish for.
