Bob Todd, The Big 8 CKLW Windsor (Detroit) | 1967
Listen to this and imagine a Summer afternoon somewhere in Ontario or Michigan/Northern Indiana/Northwest Ohio… the signal does travel that far! There’s some thunderstorm activity somewhere in the region based upon the static crashes, and this is a daytime signal evident by the lack of fading. Well, this is how CKLW sounded like in it’s prime! This was a monster station, marketed to the U.S. side of the international border, at a time before Canadian Content rules dictated station current playlists.
This is a very clean, clear recording. We once again point out the care with which Contributor Frank Davis maintained his tape collection! We and history thank him greatly!
