I can't find a proper page anywhere dedicated to CKST-FM Coast 800 / Coast 1040, so here's where people will land when they Google this stuff. I'll post as many as I can remember, and I hope people will come to fill in the blanks.
David Marsden was the captain. He created the format, and led the station out of cow-strewn Langley into the big city.
JB Shayne: Early morning. Known previously by pseudonyms Captain Midnight, Raouel Casablanca, Chuck Stake, Reverend Rock. One of the originals.
Michael Klassen (aka Kino Klassen): Sometime reporter, and Shayne's writer and co-performer on Hollywood North segments.
\"Long\" John Tanner, the friendly giant: Late morning. Another original. Known for frequently, accidentally playing the same song twice between 6AM and 6PM, for which the station gave away $1040 (originally $800 when they started at 800AM)
Scott Eagleson: Early afternoon. CFNY refugee, the only one to make this move.
Jason ______: Early afternoon. He seemed pretty young. My guess is that he attended BCIT, probably graduated BCIT's broadcasting program sometime in the late 80s/early 90s. There was a Jason Manning fitting this description at post-mortem CKST, the sports station. That's just a wild theory with no basis in fact.
Cory White (actually Cory Perry-White): Afternoon traffic. Coined the phrase \"orange-vested vermin\" when referring to construction workers.
Shadow Stevens: Evenings. I wonder if this is our frequent song ID visitor. Not the Hollywood Squares regular, this guy had a British accent. I also wondered if he might be phoning in his shows (literally) because I never got an answer when I called the station while he was on.
Paula Spurr: Evenings. Now a musician performing local gigs in smalltown Alberta.
David Hawkes: Weekends. Broadcast live on Friday nights at some club whose name I forget, and which probably disappeared about the same time Coast did. Hawkes went on to Z95.3, with David Marsden if I remember correctly.
Wade Comer: Graveyard. Had an all-request show called Play Misty For Me.
Jim Summers: Nights.
Jackie Underwood: News.
James Ufton: Music Director and Asst. PD
Stevie Smith(?): Creative.
Guys I don't remember much of (if at all), but were part of it:
Jack Taylor, Gary Thomas, Terry Fleming, Norm Foster, Ron Bencze, Craig Peters, Craig Pfeifer, Ched Miller.
