JACK ARMSTRONG CHUM Toronto February 20, 1969 (Last show)
Jakck Armstrong's departure from CHUM was one of the most unusual Top 40 radio history.
Unhappy with the station's Drake-style format, Armstrong "worked to rule" - so to speak - during what turned out to be his final shift on CHUM. Playing to the letter but not the spirit of the format, he did his show with absolutely no energy, letting the records fade out completely and leaving dead air between the jingles and the songs. This went on for three hours before Armstrong was fired and Hal Weaver took over for the last hour of the show.
Enjoy Jack Armstromg's last show on CHUM from February 20, 1969... in the Aircheck of the Week.
Thanks to Charlie Ritenburg for this great aircheck!
