630 CHED News Director Bob Layton posted on our twitter, that he’s looking for long time radio personality Chuck Chandler. Chandler, was one of the original line-up of 630 CHED disc jockeys in the 60’s and 70’s. From what we understand, his last on air gig was with CKDA 1200 Victoria before they signed off in 1995.
Chuck, who once contributed on our old Eblah forum, back in April of 2014 was last time we heard from him. He was living in Victoria. Any one, and there must be someone who knows where the man has gone, please let Bob, and us know where he is. Why is Bob looking for Chuck? because Mr. Layton is writing a book about Edmonton Broadcasting, which should be a worthy ready.

Chuck is still on the Island. I’ve sent a note to Bob to call KJ as he has contact info.
When l heard of Chuck’s passing, l remember the last time l heard him on radio. It was
his challenge to “break up” Ed Mason…. and as the “moment” carried on, l even broke up
with Chuck’s antics. What a great, entertaining man. Will be missed
rip CHARLES P RODNEY CHANDLER; you were a terrific radio guy playing oldies on MG 1200
