Sports (1980 - April 2001)
Humble & Fred morning show (1989 - April 2001)
Fred has been a part of CFNY for longer than most people can remember. A part of the original Pete & Geets show, Fred stayed on as the morning sports announcer through Steve Anthony, Humble Howard, and all the morning show people in between. Left CFNY with Humble Howard in April of 2001 to do the morning show at Mojo 640 (what used to be Talk 640).
From Fred, November 2001:
First of all, let me say this. I'm lovin' the talk radio thing. It came along at the perfect time for Humble and I.
Cause we're old.. especially me.
Secondly, I love the idea of a reunion. There are so many great people I've worked with through the years, and I'd just love to see them again.
Thirdly, I went to Calypso Garden for some Carribean Chinese food on 16/11/2001. It's located in the strip plaza that used to house CFNY.
Whilst waiting for my food, I climbed the stairs to have a look at the old NY studios. For the most part, they're gone.
Nothing but cheezie lawyers offices and immigration hustlers.
But still there, somehow they survived, are the NY control room and production studio. There's no equipment of course, but the rooms are still intact. Stickers on the walls, nicotine on the roof and a lot of ghosts.
I stood there for a few minutes and my mind raced. I worked in that building for 15 years, and loved every stinkin goddamn minute of it. Yes, even when we played Madonna.
My point, if you're an old NYer, and you get the chance, check it out. Before its gone for good.
