Scrapbook In words, sound and images... The Golden Age of Top 40 Radio Enjoy the Aircheck of the Week
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!
This aircheck comes to us from the Clint Nickerson Collection via Dan Haber.
