AIRCHECK OF THE WEEK
Edition #976 - Week of February 11, 2017
Talent: JIM BRADY
Station: CKAR Oshawa, Ont.
Date: February 15, 1983
After his champagne days in Toronto ended, Jim Brady had a cup of coffee in Oshawa.
Brady had a tremendous run as CFTR's morning man from 1972 to 1981 (with a brief hiatus at KOPA Phoenix in 1978). He left 'TR in 1981 for rival CJCL, but that lasted less than a couple of years.
Brady moved to Oshawa - just east of Toronto - for a stint in mornings in 1983. But he wasn't there long. Before the year was out, Brady had moved to CHQR Calgary. He would make one more radio stop in the Toronto area - at CFGM Richmond Hill - in the late '80s before leaving Hogtown for good.
