From Alan, May 2002:
"I was moved into management in January 2001 when I was given the reigns of Y95 (now Y108), a former WIC radio station that was purchased by Corus, the parent company of CFNY. I still do "The Ongoing History of New Music" and the occasional "World Album Premiere" special for the station. The OH is heard on a whack of stations (Corus and non-Corus) from Ottawa to Victoria."

This is the end of The Ongoing History of New Music show, because Corus owns this show.
