Jackson Armstrong, 1050 CHUM Toronto | 1967

Perhaps it was the PAMS signature jingles, the incredible music, the enormous audience or just the mystique surrounding this radio station. But for a time in the 1960s and 70s, no other station in Toronto touched its listeners the way 1050 CHUM did. One of radio’s greats is featured on this worn but wonderful aircheck. The late Jackson Armstrong, complete with the Gorilla and the future R...

Jim Van Horn, 1050 CHUM Toronto | September, 1977

Courtesy of Big Apple Airchecks, here’s a snippet of 1050 CHUM in the salad days of late 70s AM Top 40. Its right after Labor Day weekend so we can nail the date of this recording down to early September, 1977. This is Jim Van Horn, a jock with big pipes and a big city sound to his presentation. The aircheck is a bit choppy and not altogether the best audio quality, but we restored it the be...

MicroChexx: 1050 CHUM Toronto, First Day as Gold-Based AC | June 6, 1986

What follows is all that could be salvaged from two sides of a C-60 cassette featuring music from the first day of the then-new AC format at 1050 CHUM. We don’t feature the music on this website, but endeavor to bring you as much of the radio station’s imaging, the ‘sound between the records’, so to speak. What happened here is, the person who recorded this obviously was re...

The “Sunday Funnies”, 104.5 CHUM-FM Toronto | 1986

Courtesy of new Contributor “Jay”, who sent this in without his last name and only with a download link to this in his collection, here’s something truly unique! The Sunday Funnies were aired on many AOR, Progressive and the evolving Active Rock stations of the mid-80s. CHUM-FM, if you believe the wikipedia version of history of CHUM-FM, was evolving from Album Rock to Adult Cont...

Jackson Armstrong, 1050 CHUM Toronto Composite 1968-69

Canada, as the United States, had it’s ‘golden Top 40’ age during the 1960s and 70s, and perhaps no other Canadian radio station had greater success with the format than Toronto’s 1050 CHUM. Imagine, a radio station that had so much success as a music station that it launched its own music company. Perhaps all that stemmed from the format’s early flirtations with payo...

Gord Johnson, The “Sunday Funnies”; CHUM-FM Toronto | October 4, 1987

For those of you familiar with AOR FM radio in the late 70s and 80s, remember how when most other commercial radio stations were broadcasting either church services or some other public affairs programming to fulfill the governments public service requirements? Many Album Rock stations took this opportunity to run the truly bizzare or fun shows of the day. Shows like Dr. Demento… even music ...

Ingrid Schumacher, CHUM-FM Toronto | November 29, 1980

Here’s a unique recording of 104.5 CHUM-FM from back in the days when the station was an Album Rocker. Ingrid Schumacher is listed on Rock Radio Scrapbook as being a weekend personality. She sounds very knowledgeable about the music and fits in well with the station’s overall sound. So good, in fact, by 2001, she was still at CHUM-FM in a full-time capacity. This was 1980. CHUM-FM was ...

The End of an Era: The CFTR Story, Part 1 | June 4, 1993

For more than two decades, CFTR had been known for being one of TWO contemporary hit music stations in Toronto. The other was the legendary 1050 CHUM. CHUM moved away from Top 40 in 1986 in favor of an Adult Contemporary format, leaving CFTR alone as Toronto’s Top 40 station. It all came to an end on Monday, June 6, 1993 when CFTR became 680 News. Leading into the change, was a weekend count...
