Listen to the Rainbow


It's no secret I'm a big fan of just about anything Retrontario uploads to YouTube.  He just uploaded an ad for CKEY Radio 590.  It's from 1980, years before CJCL / FAN 590 took the spot on your dial.

Today, that ad would be seen as promoting 590 as LGBT-friendly.  Something for 103.9 PROUD-FM, perhaps.

It turns out "Listen to the Rainbow" was CKEY's tagline for a while.  Here's a poster from the days they promised "Good music, nice people and solid news".


I think 103.9 PROUD-FM should license this campaign!
