News and sports are updated by Steve Duffy, who worked at 100.3 the Q after his time at AM 1200 ended his 40 year career in Victoria radio in January 2017 at C-FAX 1070. Donna Tunney has the traffic.

Stirling Faux and an edition of the BC Lottery Corporation's Luck Radio, which aired throughout the province, is also featured.

On July 1, 1986 CKDA 1220 moved to AM 1200. https://radiowest.ca/ckdaswitch.html

This is about the time (give or take a month or two) that I discovered CKDA from Vancouver. Charlie O'Brien makes reference to Chuck Chandler being "the new guy on staff". Was Chuck brought in to replace Al Ferraby? Al arrived at CISL for middays in June of '92, and I know he spent some time at CKDA before making the move to Vancouver.

I had the chance to visit CKDA at Pandora and Douglas on a number of occasions, one of which was almost a year to the day of this aircheck. By this time, Charlie O'Brien had left the station (I believe for Japan?), Chuck Chandler moved to mornings and the late Murray David Collins was brought in for PM drive. Steve Duffy was moved into a part-time news role on both CKDA and CFMS.
