Michael Godin's aircheck.

Post by Guylaine on Thu 8 May - 15:41

Talent: MICHAEL GODIN
Station: CFOM Quebec City
Date: Summer 1974
Time: 3:10

The story of CFOM is well-documented by Marc Denis on our Rock Radio Goodbyes section. As Marc says there, it was "the little Québec City English-language Top 40 station that could and did ... for a while anyway."

Few airchecks of CFOM have surfaced, but we do have this one for you. Enjoy Michael Godin on CFOM in 1974 here. http://rockradioscrapbook.ca/michaelgodin.ram

Many Internet-savvy oldies buffs make Michael Godin's Treasure Island Oldies a regular stop on the web. His weekly oldies show there has won much well-deserved praise. But Godin's broadcast and musical background far pre-dates the World Wide Web. Starting in 1969, he was a program host and music director at Montreal stations CFQR, CFCF and CJFM and CFOM in Quebec City. In 1975, he became Director or Artist and Repertoire at A&M Records in Canada, signing and developing stars such as Bryan Adams and winning many platinum, gold and diamond records. It was the beginning of an incredible career in the music business for Godin. Read more about that career http://www.treasureislandoldies.com/html/your_host.html

In 1973, Godin was at the legendary CFCF Montreal. He told Rock Radio Scrapbook about his time there...

"CFCF was a great time for me. I started in 1971 at their FM station, CFQR, as an operator. Within the year I was made Music Director and at the time it was the #1 FM station in Montreal. A year later I was moved over to CFCF as Music Director and also ended up with a weekend airshift, courtesy of Jim Kidd, the Program Director (who also had previously made me MD of CFQR-FM). CFCF was my first real on air shift and while I was clamouring for a Top 40 format, this AC station was a tremendous entry point for me on air. There were also many radio veteran personalities there: Ned Conlon, Jimmy Tapp, Jack Curran, Gordon Sinclair and Ken Dobson. CFCF was an amazing learning opportunity as I was so fortunate to work there and not have to get my start in 'Small Town" Canada. It was also special to be working at the first commercially licensed radio station in North America. In fact, CFCF stood for Canada's First, Canada's Finest.

I was about 17 or 18 at the time of this aircheck and although I do sound like a young kid, and an inexperienced DJ it is a treat for me to hear myself way back then."

Highlights of this aircheck include Jimmy Tapp voicing a spot for Acrilan Velvet and an upcoming Gilbert O'Sullivan concert, sports talk host Ted Tevan for Western Exterminating and Michael cross-plugging the Monday morning breakfast show with Ned Conlon.
