Steve Shannon; First Show, 680 CFTR Toronto | June 23, 1973

680 AM Toronto, CFTR

Sometimes the best recordings come out of nowhere.

Sent in by Contributor Daniel Coulombe (CKTS Sherbrooke), here’s the CFTR debut of longtime & legendary jock Steve Shannon. Its 1973 and this is seriously the hottest station in Canada during this time period. In fact, CFTR was arguably the most popular AM Top 40 station for almost 10 years.

The station hung on as a music outlet until the plug was mercifully pulled in 1993, when CFTR went All-News. But so many fans will remember the days when the station sounded like this!

      I cant believe this sick freak is still in radio. He did damage to alot of people. He does have a criminal record. What goes around will come around.
