AIRCHECK OF THE WEEK

Edition #986 - Week of April 22, 2018

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.

Enjoy Roger Ashby and Mike Holland on CHUM from April 26, 1985  .
.. in the Aircheck of the Week!

Thanks to Doug Thompson in the CHUM Archives for this wonderful aircheck!
