Scrapbook In words, sound and images... The Golden Age of Top 40 Radio Enjoy the Aircheck of the Week
AIRCHECK OF THE WEEK Now in both Real Audio and MP3
Edition #899 August 21, 2016 TOM ALLAN CFGO (ENERGY 1200) OTTAWA APRIL 13, 1988
It was a perfect match - Energy 1200 and Tom Allan.
Thoroughly fitting the station's moniker, the high-energy Allan rocks the airwaves in this aircheck from an era we rarely feature - the late '80s. By this time, AM Top 40 music stations were dropping like flies but CFGO had just rejoined the fray, having jettisoned Top 40 for a short-lived adult contemporary format. Energy 1200 lasted nine years before finally switching to alternative and underground rock as "The Buzz" in late 1997. Less than a year later, the Buzz became all-sports Team 1200.
Enjoy Tom Allan on CFGO (Energy 1200) from April 13, 1988 ... in the Aircheck of the Week!
Thanks to Russ Horton for
another great aircheck!
