Rob Vie on CJAY 92 Calgary | February 1985

92.1 Calgary CJAY

Fourth in our series of airchecks from the Calgary market features yet another rock station. This one, however, has had great success since it’s sign on, June 1, 1977. It exists today as an Active Rock station, recently having celebrated it’s 30th anniversary! How many stations can claim that?

Like the CKIK aircheck, this one is fairly laid back and also boasts a fair variety of music, but does lean a bit more into the hard rock side, which may explain it’s staying power. Still, like any great rock station… no jingles, no overblown production and promos (at least for it’s time – this WAS 1985!), just a capable jock and his rock.

    Hey gang.. double check the name on that aircheck I believe it was Rob Bye. I also worked with Rob in Kelowna.

    Actually the guy’s name is Rob Bye. He is now a GM at a station in Nanaimo. The lady doing traffic was Marilyn Denis (does a talk show on CITY TV now called CITYLINE) Wayne Nelson is the news guy and he is now on QR77 doing afternoon news. The ski report guy is Racy Dave Tracy and he is now at 660 News as Trace St. John doing traffic in the afternoons. A rock solid line-up from a rock solid station. Thanks for the trip down memory lane.
