  1. Hi Steve. This was a jockless, uninterrupted music sweep that lasted all weekend. The jocks began live again on Monday, June 9th.

    Rock Radio Scrapbook has the format change along with a message from then program director, Terry Williams, about the change. After We Built This City, a montage was played of many of the big hits heard on 1050 CHUM through the years.

    The format change happened on a Friday afternoon, according to the link I posted above.

    Hope this helps.

  2. The “uninterrupted music” was temporary during the introduction of the new music format. When things returned to the ‘new’ normal, the jocks were back.

  3. The delivery became very adult, many of the same jocks from that era stayed. Don Percey who I worked with in Winnipeg was brought in for mornings.
