830 CKKY to 101.9 CKKY

Postby TRENT310 » Wed Oct 23, 2013 4:36 pm

Well, my favourite radio station is now over. The station flipped bands and flipped formats to K-Rock months after the CRTC gave its approval.

http://www.crtc.gc.ca/eng/archive/2013/2013-196.htm

As we have discussed in past threads here, the station previously applied for a FM flip and then a frequency change to 1080kHz.
I supported the frequency change to a clearer channel and former CKSA legacy, but the business model apparently did not work out.

Still missing this radio station. Good thing I recorded 45 hours of the station before they went off air.

Some audio clips to share...

Midwest Country Giant
Your Station Since 1992
Find Us Online at Key83.com (domain now expired)
The Language Of Country Music
Home of the Edmonton Oilers (Key83 would simulcast 630 CHED on game days, like CKWB and others still do today. CHED often had better night coverage than CKKY for many listeners though.)
From Cold Lake to Compeer (there should be another similar one 'From Wetaskiwin to Wilkie' - still trying to find it)
Short ID (typically thrown in between songs)
Back by Popular Demand
Overnights - Check The Cows For You
Newcap Marketing Consultant Promo 2012

Cuts off Cat Country branding - Key83 retained lots of Cat Country branding up until the last day, with the 'Cat Country' voiceover merely cut out (sometimes quite roughly) after 2006.
Overnights - Back to Back Country Hits
Overnights - We Never Sleep
Overnights - We Come Alive With The Music
Overnights - While The Rest Of The World Sleeps
Agriculture Marketing Promo (if you phone that 1-800 number today, you get CFCW studios.)
If it's Hot, If it's New, and If It's Country (similar to the CKJR clip posted elsewhere on this site)
