Edge 102 ~ CFNY


Martin Streek Swearing on 102.1 the Edge

When Pete Fowler visited for his appearance on Toronto Mike'd, he told a great story about co-hosting The Thursday 30 with Martin Streek in 1994 when Martin Streek dropped an F-bomb. He even brought in the memo sent by Stu Meyers about this incident. I read this memo in its entirety during this episode with Fowler.

Jason Barr was also witness to this from his perch in Brampton, and he shared his memories of this moment in CFNY history.

And now, thanks to Brother Bill who shared it with Pete Fowler who shared it with me, we have the audio of Martin Streek swearing live on the air at 102.1 the Edge.

3 Hours of CFNY From 1983

My buddy Andrew passed these audio treats along, so I thought I'd share them with the masses.

This is how CFNY 102.1 sounded in 1983.

Do You Remember Club 102 on CHCH TV in Hamilton?

I've been conversing with a documentary filmmaker producing a film about Martin Streek. He's been listening to my podcast as a source of research, which fills me with great pride.

We had a chat yesterday about Chris Sheppard and his thoughts on Martin Streek. Shep would often say "often imitated, never duplicated" and there's a hypothesis that this was a reaction to Martin Streek taking over Club 102 from him after he left CFNY. One day I'd love to have Chris Sheppard on my podcast to hear his take on that, but in the meantime it's interested food for thought.

We also talked about Club 102 being broadcast on CHCH TV. There's little about this short-lived show online except for a couple of YouTube clips and this comment left on this very site.

Do you remember Club 102 on CHCH TV in Hamilton? What can you tell me about this show?
