AIRCHECK OF THE WEEK

Edition #1120 - November 29, 2020

TOM RIVERS
CHUM Toronto
December 5, 1970 (UNSCOPED)

In a star-studded lineup, Tom Rivers was a superstar.

 Rivers, who never found a post he couldn't hit, was hired at CHUM when program director J. Robert Wood heard him on WKNR while driving back to Toronto from  Michigan. The "Riv" would go on to do four tours of duty at CHUM over a span of more than three decades. He died in 2004 at the age of 57.

Enjoy Tom Rivers on CHUM from December 5, 1970 (UNSCOPED) ... in the Aircheck of the Week.

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