It's the late "D Dogies" D'Arcy Scott, Canada's Colonel of Country Music and prolific concert promoter. From June 1965, recorded near Lundbreck, Alberta, around the time of 1060 CFCN Radio's increase to 50,000 watts of daytime power. CFCN Radio would increase nighttime power to 50,000 watts in 1966.

The audio is a compilation of clips, taken from a nearly 60 year old reel, including a dedication "to the boys in the newsroom."

Not certain about the voice on the last segment referencing Dave Brown, host of CFCN's easy listening evening show, who followed D'Arcy's show in 1965.
