Congratulations, Scott, on the redesign
and resurrection of this site. I was wondering
what had happened to the web site.

Please keep up the fine work!

Hi Scott! Please remove the Mike Stafford "And Another Thing" article. It's copywrited and, more importantly, it sucks! Seriously, I own the material and I don't want it published. Thanks,

Wow. A friend refered me to this site. I thought no one really remembered the REAL spirt CFNY! Glad to see it resurrected again.

It was a delight to read about and remember the old station. I miss it terribly.
You've done a great job with the site. I'll look forward to any updates.

Hi Aleks,

I can't take the credit for the graphic design - it was done by my good friend Jeff Goebel over at Frogstar:


But thanks for the compliment. Good to see your site is back up and running again.

Way to go guys, your effort here is much appreciated. I found some old CFNY lists a year ago and thanks to napster have been on a slow rebuild of the glory days. I'll cherish any playlist you find and post (or more stuff like your sounds link...Great)

Q. for CFNY Alumni, I have been trying to ID a song with very little information other than a shadow of a memory of it, can you help?

It has a vocal sound like Sqeeze ("Cool for Cats")
or maybe Ian Dury("Hit me with your rythm stick")

song partially revolves around making breakfast-sounds of making it in background-the artist is humming a bit-and a refrain says "and a little bit of toast!"

Keep up the good work (Thanks for the link Dave)

Sad news that Alan Cross is leaving to head off to Y95 as PD.

Does any one no 1> if he will be on air there? and 2> what is happening to The Ongoing History?

Thanks all!

Hi Paul,

The song you are talking about is called "Toast", and it is by the Streetband. It was a Pete & Geets staple song, and you can find it on the Pete & Geets Morning Show Music album #1 on this page:

Also Paul,

You can download the MP3 of the "Toast" song from the sounds page on the site here:

I have a few tracks I cannot positively ID so if anyone knows the correct bands or titles for these I would appreciate it.

Vis a Vis - Not sure whether the proper title is
'I am the night' or 'Heart and Soul'

c. 1980 - 1982 Kinetic Ideals? - Fire? (sounds like goth)

Darkroom - Living in the shadows?

?? - Call me (chorus: call me call me no time to hesitate we must communicate call me call me won't you call this number now)

I have sound samples I could provide if anyone thinks they can help on this.

Another classic CFNY music mystery from an old tape.

Name the group...i'm stumped

My guess is title:"Why Me"
Some lyrics:

I was waiting on the pad
all systems were go
the man up in the tower was enjoying the show
Then I got this feeling
that I never had before
hey let me out of here
what am I here for
why me
why me
there must be a thousand other guys
must be some other way to look good in her eyes
why am I up here
what do they see in me
must be one thousand other places to be
why me


By the way, Thanks for the "Toast" link Scott

....long live the spirit of radio......

Hmm. That one is not sounding familiar. However, the Vis a Vis song George mentioned above I think may be called "Shadowland".

Darkroom had a few tracks out, but their most popular one was "Test of Time."
