SUNDAY in Broadcast History .. May 31st

IT WAS MAY 31st … when the first Canadian TV signal on the prairies took to the air as CBWT Winnipeg signed on…
When the weekly Odessa Texas TV show featuring Roy Orbison and the Teen Kings boasted Elvis Presley as their singing guest…
When Bobby Darin appeared on CBS-TV’s Ed Sullivan Show singing his two top pop singles “Mack the Knife” and “Dream Lover.” And Canada’s Wayne & Schuster did a takeoff on TV crime shows…
..and when Mel Cooper (pictured) received approval to acquire 71% of Victoria’s CFAX 1070 from Clare Copeland. Cooper kept CFAX at the top of the Victoria radio ratings for the next 30 years, before selling to CHUM in 2004.
