CKLG on 730 kHz traces its roots to 1958 when it moved to that frequency from 1070. It originally launched in 1955. CKLG, or, for a time in the 1970s, known as “LG-73” was a major top forty station with a 50,000 watt signal! It’s popularity declined as FM became the dominant music outlet.

This high-powered format is best remembered right here. Roy Hennessey is the jock, and you can hear a lot of RKO-General-type elements to this approach, although the station had no ties to the American-based broadcaster. CKLG was owned and operated in 1973 by Moffat Broadcasting.

We think you’ll enjoy this 5 minute scope of CKLG 73 from December 30, 1974!
