TOM JEFFRIES, RUSS McCLOUD
CFUN VANCOUVER
FEBRUARY 16, 1984 (SCOPED)

Two of Canada's leading broadcast talents are heard on this sample of mid-'80s CFUN.

CFUN was near the end of its time as a Top 40 outlet in early 1984 but it wasn't because of the air talent. Tom Jeffries and Russ McCloud were part of an outstanding lineup that also included Fred Latremouille, Tom Lucas, Stu Ferguson, Jack Casey and Marc James. But the station dropped Top 40 for easy listening on December 19, 1984.

Enjoy Tom Jefffries and Russ McCloud on CFUN Vancouver from February 16, 1984 (SCOPED) ... in the Aircheck of the Week!

Thanks to Ted Wendland/radiowest.ca for this great aircheck!
