JOHN RODE
KEY 590 (CKEY) TORONTO
OCTOBER 10, 1988

They say you can't go back, but CKEY did.

 On January 1, 1984 - after nearly two decades as a full-service MOR outlet - the Toronto station returned to its rock 'n' roll roots (sort of) as "Solid Gold CKEY." 'EY's mixture of soft rock hits was emulated by CHUM in 1986 and then by the new CJEZ a year later. So on June 20 CKEY went to a full oldies format as KEY-590, with the station playing some of the tunes it did when it was a Top 40 outlet in the late '50s and early '60s. KEY-590 lasted until 1991, when it was displaced by a country-music format as Country 59.

Enjoy John Rode on KEY-590 (CKEY) from October 10, 1988 (UNSCOPED & SCOPED) ... in the Aircheck of the Week!

Thanks to Russ Horton for this great aircheck!
