CKO The greatest hits.. well not even close..

Found a cassette tape of a thing I did back at CKO Toronto (99.1 FM) in 1985. Late one night while WineView was rolling out, I got bored and ended up in a small production room with a cassette, r2r and a triple cart deck and there were a bunch of 'boot' carts lying around the newsroom.

So I found some music on a tape, and played it while madly switching in and out carts on the fly. None of that gimmicky multi-track stuff here . Anyway, This was the result. I don't remember why I put it together but listening back to it 33 years later, I think it paints a picture of what it was like at the little station that couldn't.

Didn’t CNN launch with the world in 20 minutes or something like that.
All part of the 20/20 news clock I’d guess.
