Scrapbook In words, sound and images... The Golden Age of Top 40 Radio Enjoy the Aircheck of the Week
ROGER ASHBY & MIKE HOLLAND CHUM Toronto April 26, 1985
It took big shoes to fill the morning shift at CHUM. For a while, they went with two pairs.
Mike Holland joined Roger Ashby
on CHUM's AM drive shift in the mid-'80s as the Top 40 giant went to a duo
in mornings for the first time. The pairing didn't last long as Ashby moved
to mornings at CHUM-FM in the fall of 1985. Holland left the station in 1987
and retired from radio to focus on his musical career.
Thanks to Doug Thompson in the CHUM Archives for this wonderful aircheck!
