I remember one day back in the 80's when we were bored with nothing to do, my best friend and I decided to drop in to CFNY and visit whichever DJ was on that evening. I roped in my brother to drive us to Brampton in the family Aspen, and off we went.
If I recall correctly, it was Ron Bruchal's shift. We couldn't believe it when he answered the door and welcomed us in. We had brought a few 45's from my friend's parents record collection which we thought were really cool and we hoped he'd play. One was a song called 'Do the Monkey' and another was called 'Shoe Shoe Twist,' which was sung in German or Austrian. Ron did play one on the air and loved it. We were thrilled to have contributed to the show.
This illustrates what was so great about CFNY back in the day. That would never have happened at any other station. I don't think there will ever be another CFNY, which is a real shame. It was the soundtrack to my youth and I remember it with great fondness.
