Q107 Ad From 1983


YouTube user WNED17 recently uploaded some fantastic retro-Toronto-centric gems.  These clips have brought back a tonne of memories for me, so I'm going to feature them one by one over the next few weeks.

I wasn't listening to Q107 in 1983.  At that time, I was a young AM listener who enjoyed the top 40 music on CFTR.  As the 80s progressed, I started listening to harder rock, and that meant discovering Q107.

There were years in the late 80s that I awoke to Q107.  There was Jesse and Gene, and then Brother Jake Edwards and the Edwards Air Force Base when Jesse and Gene moved to the AM dial.  I remember around the time Appetite For Destruction was released that Q107's Top Ten at Ten was essential nightly listening for me.

Here's an ad for the mighty Q from 1983.
