Scrapbook Enjoy the Aircheck of the Week
PETER BELL CKOM Saskatoon April 6, 1974 (UNSCOPED)
We're going back to the mid-70s for some full service radio from Canada's heartland.
Peter Bell plays a mix of light rock and country, Bob Lundy is heard with the news and Tom Christian has the sports on CKOM, which went on the air in 1951 as "The Friendly Station." It's a Saturday morning in Saskatoon, from 45 years ago, and AM full service radio with music, news and sports - live and local - was still king.
Enjoy Peter Bell on CKOM from April 6, 1974 (UNSCOPED) ... in the Aircheck of the Week.
Thanks to Don Shuttleworth for this great aircheck!
