Cknw 3 tone..anyone have it?

Postby RadioGuy89b » Mon Sep 02, 2019 5:10 pm

With NW having had 75th and playing the 3 tone news intro from 80s, i thought i could grab it fr audio vault. Too late. They only keep it for 10 days.

Does anyone have a copy? Would be appreciated.

Hi RadioGuy89b,

It's part of today's jingle of the day montage -

Thank you, and I think 2nd one is an old CJVI one, no?

This stuff is gold. I wish I had more from CISL 650. Had it, lost in a move, grrr from 1984 85

I think you're right about CJVI, I wasn't in their listening area at the time. I think CKWX Vancouver used it too.

I definitely know CFAC Calgary used it well into the '80s. It's originally from ABC (Contemporary?) Radio News.

The NW news call in the montage is not the original. The first one was the same three notes (according to Chuck Davis, NW used it's first vari-speed tape deck to create the tones) with Red Alix' (CJOB) 'This is the News'. I probably have it somewhere on an old CFTK aircheck - somehow we acquired it up there.

Does anyone have recording of the CKNW 1 tone sound currently used at the beginning of news broadcast?
