When I was about 8 years old, I remember listening to the radio on my parent’s hi-fi. (an all one stereo that played record (LP) and 8 tracks.) One day I was bored with the AM stations and decided to see what FM was all about. I moved the dial around until I found music and when the music stopped, I heard the station’s name; Q-107 Toronto’s Rock, and I have been listening ever since.
While Q-107 is my most tuned in radio station, I do occasionally like to switch it up a bit and change stations, depending on my mood. It’s ok, we just won’t tell them.
During the 1980s, I would wake up to hearing Chicken Man -bok bokbokbok during the morning show, listened to Sunday night Sex with Sue and of course my all time favourite, Psychedelic Psunday, where I was able to listen to music from the 1960s and 1970s, the best part of waking up Sundays. They may have lost me for a bit when Howard Stern was on, I could only take so much of him.
Listening to the Mighty Q all these years has given me an appreciation for music, and to make the experience even brighter, there has been a load of fabulous “On Air” talent, with humour, great stories and the love of music.
