CJJC 1975


Enjoy!
Those who danced were thought to be quite insane by those who couldn't hear the music.

Dave Chesney gave me my first job in radio. A first class guy. What happened?
As I recall Joe decided to run provincially for the NDP and all the car dealers that kept the station afloat pulled their ads. Joe used to pull the odd weekend airshift always noted on the schedule as "Joe Cool". He was a fervent anti-smoker when it wasn't fashionable. Speaking of smoking, Norm Mazuren was responsible for the fact that I never started the filthy habit. I remember coming into the control and having to clear out his ashtray filled with two dozen butts and being so grossed out that I never started.
Dodman was quite a character as was Rob Carlyle. There was also a great newsman Dale Babcook who was there on the weekends driving around in the Vega news cruiser.
And yes the building shook whenever a truck rumbled along the main drag. I used to live off the burgers and fries from the ice cream parlour located a couple of doors down.
Thanks for putting this stuff up Ted! When are you going to put up some of your CJJC airchecks? Maybe the one featuring a certain Johnny Paycheck song?

I particularly like the Michael Caine look that Jacques is affecting.

In your list, Top Dog, you left out something else - competition from CKWX. Add that to Joe's shoestring budget, poor frequency choice (moving from 850 was a bad decision) and the stigma of being a "local" station, and CJJC didn't have much of a chance. Country music listeners tuned into WX.

I don't recognise all the guys in the CJJC lineup, but the ones I know would have provided more entertainment than some of the Vancouver stations on the air today.

It sure shows how radio has changed. Someone doing a live all-night show!? And on weekends, too!

cArtie.

P.S.: Heard Ched on a spot the other day. I've always liked his intonations and smooth read.

Dan, don't you mean Andy Michaels, not Ted??? Andy was there when I went to CJJC in March 1976.

Great stuff, and so much of it, it feels like you're rooting through a time capsule!
