Bonus Aircheck - Sharkey Collection - Bruce Kenyon

Postby albertaboy4life » Tue May 18, 2021 5:34 pm

Our pal Sharkey (Mark Summers, http://sharkbytes-studios.com/) has a bonus CHQR (ahem News Talk 770) aircheck to go with our QR77 1991 aircheck posted earlier -

Sharkey's former colleague from the days of the "Breakfast Club" on Edmonton's K-97, Bruce Kenyon, finished his radio career at Calgary's News Talk 770. Here's part of his last show -

And the RadioWest posting at the time of Bruce's retirement announcement - viewtopic.php?f=2&t=27160

Bruce started his radio career in Peterborough, ON as an Operator in 1975 and worked his way up to being on air. His next move was to Edmonton, CJCA FM “On the Rocks” and was even “Voice of the CJCA Flying Tiger” during traffic reports. Then in 1979 Bruce was part of the legendary launch of K-97 (CIRK FM) Radio. He had a brief stint in Montreal at CJFM in 1985 doing the morning show before returning to Edmonton and K-97. In 2000, he moved to Calgary as host of the morning show on QR77 for a few years, before hosting mornings on sister station Q107 FM. Bruce returned to (CHQR) News Talk 770, a few years later and had been the morning show host until his retirement in 2017. Gord Gillies succeeded Bruce in mid-August 2017.

Thank you, Sharkey!
