AIRCHECK OF THE WEEK

Edition #972 - Week of January 14, 2018

RED KNIGHT
CFTR Toronto
December 17, 1977

To help you with the winter chill, here's the smokin' hot Red Knight on CFTR..

Peter Thompson - a.k.a. Red Knight - held down afternoon drive at CFTR and to borrow the title of a Carly Simon tune - nobody did it better. Thompson came to 'TR from CKSL where he was known as Steve Bradley, and later would move to CKLW as Jack London followed by even greener pastures in the management suite of the Quinte Broadcasting Company. At 'TR, Knight and Jim Brady provided a fabulous afternoon-morning punch. Toronto radio was never hotter!

Enjoy Red Knight on CFTR from December 17, 1977
... in the Aircheck of the Week!

This aircheck comes to us from the Clint Nickerson Collection via Dan Haber.
