OMG>>>>The Ratings Are Going To SOAR

Postby PicturesForYourEars » Mon Jun 06, 2016 11:51 pm

Dave Sheldon is 'vacationing' at several cities in Arizona.

But, don't worry...
fortunately his entire tour of golf courses is being broadcast live 3-6pm daily, on CKPM
(Tri-city Radio serving Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam and Port Moody)!!!

So, Marblemouth is in Arizona mooching free golf for on air mentions? Didn't he do the same thing when he was at NW?

Do any of these golf courses realize that CKPM has the coverage of a mouse fart? And in addition to that, it has no listeners (PicturesForYourEars must be a paid intern or maybe even Marblemouth's Caddy?).

Is Marbles phoning in his shows on a Fido phone?

I guess nowadays you could use a Switch 56 or Tie Line real cheaply with 3 or 4 cent a minute long distance phone cards.

I have several friends in the Port Moody/Tri Cities area and none of them have ever mentioned listening to CKPM.

Does anybody really listen?

Nope .
NOZBODY listens to CKPM - except this Tri-city resident, who is paid to drive around 7.5 hours a day listening to the radio.

I switch between ALL stations on the dial.

I'm one of many of us here on Radio West who paid my rent for decades employed by radio stations coast to coast
(been fired by the best of them).
(Have U-Haul trailer will travel). etc. etc.

Still enjoy the business.
Just not the shameful state it exists in today.

And I HATE golf. lol

I'm a TC resident. I've never heard the station and I'm an inveterate dial changer. I notice recently that the station has appeared in some official municipal bulletins and surveys. Not sure how that came about but I'm assuming the station approached the cities.

In fact, I found it is really strange that CKPM can gain enough audience without enough promotion. All I remember about the promotion from CKPM is from some random stickers on some lampposts as I walked around Port Moody and a tiny-corner commercial in the Tri-City News. :rha:

I didn't even have to work there or get fired there to get a CKO wall clock [that still works today].

Thanks Lloyd! RIP.
