A radio site without audio is like a TV station with no pictures.

On October 10, 1995 the former CKDA 1200 in Victoria came back to life as 1200 CKXM "Today's Hot Country", Here's the sign on and a portion of the first hour with CONNIE MITCHELL including a phone call from GORD LANSDELL who is now webmaster of Vancouver Broadcasters and Northwest Broadcasters

Thanks to the same Gord Lansdell mentioned above, here's some classic MONTY MacFARLANE from September of 1965 and his Saturday morning "Fair Exchange" program on Vancouver's CJOR 600. Personality radio really did exist 40 odd years ago.

Those who danced were thought to be quite insane by those who couldn't hear the music.

How many people out there actually hosted one of these kinds of shows?

I was actually very surprised to hear that The Fox stations here in Alberta (NewCap) still run these shows, locally in each of their markets (OK, I suspect they don't run one in Jasper). Westlock is the one I can hear here in Edmonton. Not sure if it is weekly, or daily, but it is part of the live Morning Shift.

I took special note, because a long-time friend, and co-worker before I retired, remembers these "Swap and Shop" shows as the main distinguishing thing about small town radio when he grew up in the '60s and '70s. And listened to CJNB in North Battleford, Saskatchewan.
