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 shows and album rock specials. Sunday mornings and evenings after 7pm were filled with some of the most memorable shows. This is no exception.
Gord Johnson is your host for the Sunday Funnies. This aired Sunday evenings, followed by some Old-Time-Radio feature of police stories. Very entertaining indeed.
This was how many AOR stations did things back then. The real serious public affairs programs usually ran after 9pm, typically between 10pm and midnight. This should bring back some pleasant memories!
