From this morning's Today in Broadcast History, here are the details:
In 1997, Radiofan's Puget Sound Radio Guide debuted on GeoCities. Its discussion forum, initially on MSN, was a few years off. But the original material, regularly updated, is still available from the RadioWest.ca home page today: a list of radio stations in Vancouver/Victoria/Seattle, since expanded to include all of B.C. and major cities in Alberta and Saskatchewan; regularly heard night-time DX catches on AM; QSL cards; and some radio station (window/bumper) stickers. It would be April 15, 2003, before the pugetsoundradio.com domain name was registered.

Thank you Radiofan for 20 years of radio fun - I think I've been signed up for every evolutionary change you've made as technology & domain names have moved forward. Of all radio sites, this is The one with great people & great topics to inform & entertain us all. :rockon:

Way-ta-go's to RadioFan for staying right on top of the site for so long.
I guess this is not a good time to ask for cheques...? :)

It's hard to believe it's been 20 years since the Geo City days and then the MSN Website complete with a chat room that we opened a few nights a week. The posting forum went crazy the day that
CKNW pulled the plug on NW2 and suddenly 25 talented people were on the street.

Along the way, several other sites came and went along with a cast of characters.

In April of 2006, Puget Sound Radio split and Radio West was born. Nice to see so many originals from the PSR days that followed us here are still with us. Thank you all for your support and postings over the
years.

Mark Sunday March 19th on your calendar for the next (and long overdue) Radio West GTG ... I'll be posting details in the next few days once we have a location confirmed. Hopefully it will be someplace
in Vancouver that is transportation friendly.

Thanks for 20 great years!

Congratulations radiofan on your 'baby' hitting the 20 year mark. This site has grown into an incomparable resource for western Canada radio broadcasting enthusiasts. Just my .02, but having that regional focus makes it all the sweeter. :occasion5:
