CFUN Studio / People pics

Postby hagopian » Tue Jul 23, 2013 1:27 pm

I wonder if anyone would have a picture of CFUN master Control?

I was a fiool - and never took pictures. I am kicking myself.

When contacting retired broadcasters - two types emerged - those that collected a bit and people like Jim Nielson who told me
he had nothing, nano, no charts, no newscasts, no carts, no tape, no pictures, nano nuttin

Lots of fiools out there Hag - we still love ya

Jack, spelling was never my strong suit.

I was stupid. No pictures of my co workers, the studios, nothing.

It really would be appreciated if any old CFUN types have some pics they could post. I would be ETERNALLY grateful.

Thanks

Like my old buddy, old pal "Hag," I failed to take pictures along the way and would dearly love to piggy-back on his plea for any station photos of CFUN at 1900 West 4th at Cypress.

What an excellent time of my life, and as the call letters hint .... it was the "funnest" place I worked during the roughly 5 calendar year span of being associated with the operation.

So, on bended knee, hands clasped together, with tears forming in my eyes, I join "The Hag" in begging for pictures. We collectively beseech you to do as Otis Redding said .... "Try A Little Tenderness" ..... and scan those old photos.

Regards to all,
AWG

AWG said it all. I spent some of the happiest days of my life with AWG, Clint Nickerson, Boom Boom Benson, Freddie and so many other delightful people. I would BEG and PLEAD, along with AWG, that we would dearly appreciate any pics of our beloved CFUN. Yeah, we loved the place, I make no excuses. It was special.

I bet you have a station that rings the bell for you, or I sure hope you do. I think every radio person should have the blessing of working for at least one place that leaves them a lifetime of happy memories.

I cannot tell you how nice these folks were. I still dream about the place. Funny, eh?

The memories are sharp and the feelings run deep. In advance. Thanks for any consideration.

I've got a few b&w pics of 1900 from the early 70s that I'll try and dig up when I get back from vacation. The boards were similar to what CKWX had.
The building was sort of the same layout too with a studio block in the center surrounded by offices. I know I have a shot of Cathy B. in the library and
one of Merv Connelly (sp?) in the newsroom. The Hudson Brothers were in the building promoting one of their "hits" the day I brought my trusty Pentax.

Tuned - thanks a bunch.

Any pic of CFUN or CKVN will be treasured, by AWG and many other CKVN and CFUN alumni.

Thanks in advance.

I had forgotten those pix .... so I downloaded and saved them.

As my old buddy, old pal Hagopian said in another thread, ...... at the time, little did we know that was to be our "season in the sun."

........... We had joy, we had fun, we had seasons in the sun........ (and pretty girls were indeed everywhere.)

Tuned ..... I'll wait for you to come back from vacation and sort through stuff for those pictures .... this means a great deal to me and Hag & I would truly appreciate them. Thanks in advance for the effort.

Regards,
AWG

Hey Radiofan,

Great shots of the CFUN Studio and newsroom. That was the new studio. Any photos of the old one? It was small.

Rich, check earlier posted shots of our old haunt, and see the stand up board, the newsroom et al.
The old joint wasn’t fancy - but it was home.
I can’t really get my mind around it as a Thrift store.
