AIRCHECK OF THE WEEK
Edition #1231 - February 5, 2023


JAY DOUGLAS
CFCO Chatham, Ont.

January, 1967

(Contributor: Roy Geldart)



We pay our first visit to CFCO Chatham. a station whose roots can be traced back to 1926, when a local butcher, John Beardall, founded 10BT and ran it out of his home from a homemade transmitter.

10BT became CFCO in 1928 at 250 watts. In 1930, as the station started to grow, studios were moved from Beardall's home to the William Pitt Hotel in Chatham.

Beardall remained with the station until 1962, when he retired ending a 36-year association with the station he founded. He died in 1969, aged 77.

Enjoy Jay Douglas on CFCO from January, 1967 ... in the Aircheck of the Week.
