A friend of mine who used to work at WX (Frank) was asking if :
1) does anybody recognize who voice that commercial
2) and if that was during the time that Jim Fraser was the morning man....

Could easily have been during Fraser's time... We worked that morning show together for about ten years... right through that logo, and a few others... Not sure on who did the VO though... but they were obviously still emphasizing the X... because of the constant confusion with NW... We got "CKNWX" a lot. ;-)

The voice over was quite likely done by someone in house at Film House (the company that did those commercials).
Those who danced were thought to be quite insane by those who couldn't hear the music.

Cam, it still happens, even though the station has been branding itself without the call letters for who knows how many years now.
It used to happen the other way around; I don't know if it still does.
