A radio site without audio is like a TV station with no pictures.

Tom Jeffries CKWX July 1990

After returning to the West Coast from The Maritimes in the Summer of 1990, Tom Jeffries got an unexpected call from CKWX PD Ted Farr wondering if he'd like to do a shift or two filling in for Morning Guy Jim Fraser ... Jeffries said yes, and here he is on what became his "audition" shift at Super Country CKWX. A few weeks later, Jeffries was hired for Afternoon drive on sister station, 97 KISS FM ... Along with Tom, you'll hear many other familiar Vancouver voices who were part of Fraser's Morning show.

Tom Jeffries ... CKWX July 31, 1990

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

What a time capsule for me... and a reminder of just how professional my co-workers were back in the day... You'd never know Tom had just met us a day or two before... He's one of the smoothest, most professional broadcasters I've had the pleasure of working with... and I've worked with many. Thanks for sharing this Ted... So glad someone saved it! :worthybow:

This is what radio sounds like when you have real pros behind the mic.

Rocky,You nailed it and I couldn't agree with you more. Tom and Cam true pros and they didn't even know they had fans on the prairies. This is great radio that I miss. Just goes to show you are a real pro when you can switch formats so well from 14CFUN to WX1130. Thank You Radiofan.
