107-3CFGQ former CKIK

Lisa Flairhe / Rhino, CKIK Calgary | August 22, 1996


Recorded six years before a noteworthy call letter and format change (CFGQ Q-107 Classic Rock), here’s the Adult Contemporary version of CKIK that was sandwiched in between two Rock formats.

A few notables on this 10+ minute scope: Lisa Flairhe(sp) (pronounced Flair-hay) is heard towards the beginning, in just one break. She talks after the music stops, like an old AOR approach. After a commercial break, Rhino steps in with a live Top Hour Legal ID over a music bed, and is heard often, talking over the music in a more CHR approach. I’m not sure if this was typical of the format or a fluke. The imaging voice is a guy by the name of Zak. Don’t remember his last name but he voiced a lot of Alternative and Modern AC stations in the 90s.

The logo below is from the 1980s, before this aircheck was recorded.

Our Canadian visitors are invited to comment especially if they are familiar with CKIK and the Calgary market.

Ha ha, this brings back memories.

The logo on the bottom is the current logo used by the station, who now only play classic rock. Alice Cooper’s radio show is one of the highlights now.


The old logo is here:

the station also went by the name “kick 107”.

Pretty sure it’s Lisa Player. Sounds like she just happens to say “hey” after giving her name.
