C-FUN, April 1962

Sixty years ago this week, I began one of the most exciting phases of my radio career when I made the move to C-FUN, “The Bright Exciting Sound Of Tomorrow!”

Dave McCormick, Al Jordan, Brian Lord, Frosty Forst, Buzz Leboe, Jerry Landa, Al Jordan, Ronn Grimster, Tom Peacock, Fred Latremouille, Ed Karl, John H. Tanner, “Mad” Mel Happy, Daryl B, TD Mulligan, Neil Soper, Roff Johansson, Don Richards, Cameron Bell and Jim Nielsen were just some of the talented people who passed through the doors of 1900 West Fourth Avenue.

And how about the music? Roy Orbison, Elvis Presley, Del Shannon, Bobby Curtola, Cliff Richard, Ricky Nelson, Brenda Lee, Ray Charles, Neil Sedaka, Sam Cooke, The Everly Brothers, Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons, Bobby Vee and Gene Pitney dominated the Funtastic Fifty, the Battle Of The New Sounds and the C-FUN Soundathon that year.

Much more to come… as we celebrate “The FUN Years” on 1410!
