AIRCHECK OF THE WEEK

Edition #959 - Week of October 15, 2017

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.

Enjoy five "Sunday Sunday" segments on CFTR from 1980 and 1981
... in the Aircheck of the Week!

Thanks again to Dan Haber for these great finds!
