The History of 97.3 - From Easy to Boom


YouTube user Retrontario frequently uploads fantastic retro-Toronto-centric gems.  These clips never fail to bring back a ton of memories for me, so I feature them from time to time.

I've been listening to Boom 97.3 since it launched last Boxing Day.  If you're looking for some 80s stuff, I recommend checking it out.

Before becoming Boom 97.3, it was EZ Rock since 1995.  Before EZ Rock, 97.3 was a classic hits station known as Z 97.3FM, but it didn't start that way.  It started as Easy 97.3, Toronto's easy listening music station.

Here's an old ad for Easy 97.3, a station I'm certain I would have hated.
