AIRCHECK OF THE WEEK
- Edition #949 - August 6, 2017 -
Talent: JIMMY DARIN
Station: CKY Winnipeg
Date: August 12, 1965
Time: 50:38 (unscoped)
Jimmy Darin (Hilliard) came to CKY Winnipeg from KNEW Spokane in 1963. He joined one of the most popular and powerful stations on the Prairies, as CKY's 50,000-watt signal at 580kc got out well when the skywave kicked in at night. The station signed on New Year's Eve 1949 and soon adopted the slogan "The Powerful Station With Proven Listener Response." CKY was a Top 40 station throughout much of its broadcast life and a great one too as you'll hear on this aircheck. Future stars to appear on CKY in the '60s include Chuck McCoy and Daryl B. This wonderful find by Charlie Ritenburg is a real treasure and a rare peek at Winnipeg Top 40 radio in the mid-'60s.
