Scrapbook In words, sound and images... The Golden Age of Top 40 Radio Enjoy the Aircheck of the Week
SUNDAY SUNDAY CFTR Toronto 1980-1981
Top 40 radio was about more than music - many of the stations had wonderful news and sports departments, and well-crafted public service programming.
One example of top-notch public
service programming was CFTR's acclaimed show "Sunday Sunday." It only
lasted a couple of years, from 1980 to 1982, but is still talked about with
reverence today. This pioneering show set a benchmark for public service
programming. At one point it aired on 52 stations in 48 markets across
Canada, but the high cost of the program led to its demise.
