Talent: STIRLING FAUX
Station: CFTR Toronto
Date: June, 1973
Time: 6:00



The contrast was dramatic when beautiful-music formatted CHFI-AM became Top 40 rocker CFTR in the early '70s. Instead of Don Parrish playing the Living Strings on Candlelight and Wine, we were hearing Doc Holliday blasting out the Edgar Winter Group's Frankenstein. It was quite an adjustment, even though the easy-listening sounds did continue on the FM side.

But CFTR was a great rock station, a perfect foil to the well-established CHUM. Deejays like Jim Brady, Steve Shannon, Holliday and others gave the station a somewhat raunchy quality missing from CHUM, for years Toronto's top 40 mainstay.

In 1973, Sterling Faux was on the 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. shift at CFTR. Here him here

Sterling Faux, former announcer of the 6/49 numbers on BCTV and now a CKNW talker and possible replacement for Rafe Mair if they choose to not renew his contract, was seen leaning against a back wall; as was the lean and lanky former BCTV sportsman, who now shills on the radio, John McKeachie. There were many more among those that came to celebrate the life of Jack Cullen. I was pleased to be one of them.
