Why Kitchener’s oldest radio station began in Brantford

From the Waterloo Record comes this bizarre tale of how what's now CKGL (aka 570 News) and used to be CHYM actually originated somewhere else.

Re: Why Kitchener’s oldest radio station began in Brantford

In 1922 most people in East Berlin (a.k.a. Kitchener) spoke German while most in West Berlin (a.k.a. Waterloo) spoke Amish and were forbidden by their Bishop to own a radio.   Glad to help.
