SOUNDATHON #14 CFUN Vancouver July 22-23, 1967, Pt. 1
It was one of Vancouver radio's most anticipated events.
From 1960 to 1967, CFUN
presented a twice-yearly review of the hits called Soundathon. The format
varied - from a 60-song presentation to 300 - from summer hits to all
oldies dating back to 1955. But it was generally held in the late fall or
early winter, and in the summer. The last Soundathon was from 11:30 p.m. to
6 a.m. on July 22-23, 1967. We have audio from that final Soundathon, with
hosts Lee Gaboury and Terry David Mulligan.
