Author Ian Howarth – Montreal’s Rocking Radio Days


Ian Howarth taught in Montreal for many years, and one of his passions was radio. He knew one day he would want to write a book about all those wonderful moments and sounds that emanated from great radio stations like 1490 CFOX, 980 CKGM, and later CHOM 97.7 once AOR became a thing in the early 70’s. In this episode you’ll hear names like Dave Boxer, Charles P. Rodney Chandler. (Chuck Chandler) Marc “Mais Oui” Denis, Ralph Lockwood and many more.
