March 15, 1972 we launched the first AC Radio Station in North America at CFTR in Toronto. It later evolved into a top 40 station which eventually knocked off CHUM.
Above is the loud Billboard we used to introduce our new soft sound to Toronto. The board featured Earl Mann, Bob McAdorey and the Magic Christian but our advertising agency refused to get involve with it. They claimed the only purpose it served was to be noticed. Huh?
Speaking of CFTR through the wonders of Facebook I recently connected with Earl from the above billboard and Sharon who helped put it together. Sharon was the love of my life but of course barely remembers me and Earl just wants to know if I still use the Voodoo he claims I used on him.

First time in a long time who won American Idol wasn’t instantly part of the evening news. That should scare the producers a tad don’t ya think.
Ermanno Barone claims the things we do for ourselves are gone when we are gone but the things we do for others become our legacy.
Some 40 year old divorced Women spend a lot of their time in bars tramping for trolls and the only Men they find there are simply trolling for tramps.
When you see a few white lines across the expressway slow down, they can calculate your speed from above.
I just hate it when my demons were right all along!
There has always been a debate about whether the the death penalty prevented the crime of killing. When I lived in Boston every crime in the North End where the mob lived had the death penalty attached to it. Net result, no crime.
Other than for money I have never heard a listener repeat a Radio Station’s slogan.
