In 1988, at 6:00 a.m, CISL Richmond became a traditional Oldies station, covering 1955-75, having previously played hits from 1955 to current. The station signed on May 1, 1980, on 940 KHz, switching to 650 KHz on July 1, 1984.

In 2002, at 8:00 a.m., 96.9 JACK FM was launched in Vancouver, after CKKS-FM (Kiss-FM) had spent the previous month playing all Christmas music. The station changed call letters a few months later to CKLG-FM.

In 2013, at 9:00 a.m., CRUZ-FM launched in Edmonton, replacing the Christmas music of LITE 95.7. CKEA-FM originally signed on as The Sound on September 6, 2010 at 9:57 a.m. Harvard won both a license and the frequency in 2009, over a competing application by Bell Media. Bell got a license but had to find another frequency, instead selling The Bounce to Rogers and abandoning their new license.
