New Book & Airchecks Highlight Classic Montreal Top 40 Radio

This is a post for anyone who ever listened to or worked in radio in Montreal. A new book purports to cover the classic days of AM Top 40 Radio in that city. Among the stations highlighted are CFOX, CKGM, CFCF, CJAD and more. 

The tome, called "Rock ‘n’ Radio: When DJs and Rock Music Ruled the Airwaves" goes on sale this month and promises lots of stories from the jocks who were there. Some of them wound up working in Toronto during their careers. 

Still waiting for someone to write the definitive history of the format in T.O. (beyond "The CHUM Story," which was great but only really dealt with one station.)

A look back at Montreal's English radio heyday 

In the meantime, the book's author has assembled a website filled with artifacts of those golden years including charts, pictures and airchecks from all the stations in his book. You can find that here.
