From the RadioWest aircheck archives -

This time for sure, it's Barry Bowman the "Morning Mayor" on Victoria's CFAX 1070. It's from a Thursday morning in October 1991, the day before the BC provincial election and Ed McKenzie has the news, Blane Coulcher has the weather, and Ken "The Dobber" Dobson has the sports. Drew Snider reports morning alert traffic.
