AIRCHECK OF THE WEEK

Edition #1044 - Week of June 16, 2019

TERRY STEVENS
CHAB Moose Jaw, Sask.
June 25, 1984 (UNSCOPED)

Moose Jaw's CHAB is on the loose - in AM stereo!

This aircheck of CHAB was recorded two years after the station switched to the Kahn AM stereo system. AM stereo emerged in the early '80s as a possible savior of AM, but for various reasons - including lack of a standard format in North America - it failed to gain traction. The fact that much of the audience had already migrated to FM didn't help. But AM Stereo did have a good sound, as we hear on this aircheck.

Enjoy Terry Stevens on CHAB from June 25, 1984 ... in the Aircheck of The Week.

Thanks to Charlie Ritenburg for another great aircheck!
