 CFNY Fan Page Testimonials
I listened to CFNY from about 1980 or 1981 when the airwaves were filled with the sweet sounds of my youth up until it was replaced by the acrid sounds of crap.
CFNY was ground zero for many a Toronto band and I've gotta tip my hat to Peter Goodwin and Liz Janik for giving Bullseye Records their commercial radio debut for our acts Moving Targetz and Swedish Fish on 'Streets Of Toronto' starting in 1985.
CFNY's reception was really bad in the early 80s and my little camp friends from Kitchener-Waterloo and the Niagara region would lament that they could only get it on clear summer nights.

CFNY 102.1 was a very unique and special radio station in the Toronto area that had become alive in July 1977.
At that time, according to sales manager Jim Fonger, CFNY was "positioned in the marketplace for the 25- to 34-year-old who "can't stand the heavy metal and rock sounds generated by CHUM-FM, CHUM-AM and Q107, and who isn't ready for the "easy listening" sound.
Although CFNY gained about 100,000 listeners in BBM's winter 1989 survey as a result of joining the mainstream, its overall market share was down quite a bit.

Since CFNY (which is tangentially what has become The Edge 102.1) was a 10-watt station in Brampton that broadcast from atop a Meccano set in the Halton Hills, it had the added romance of being hard to get.

I used to love cfny back in the days when it was the Toronto station for breaking new music...I'll enjoy this thanks...
When CFNY first hit the airwaves (late 70's), it was one of the best things in my teenage life.
As for Cross, he was most approachable and personable when I'd bug him during breaks working at the CNE while he broadcast live from there and he's most approachable and personable when I've bugged him via email over the past few years.

While the term "breaking" a band on radio has no strict definition, it was CFNY who first promoted the band on radio when Keith Elshaw, a CFNY DJ, played SUBURBAN DREAM and INSECT LOVE from MatM's 1979 indie release of the same name.
Nevertheless, CHUM-FM was hot on CFNY's heels, playing MatM's indie disc as well as hosting a MatM live broadcast from Toronto's Palais Royale on June 18, 1980.

'The Edge,' after his brief (but too long) stint with 'The Mix.' I missed him when he left CFNY in '91, and considered following him to 'The Mix' but I stuck with CFNY because Fred was still there, and I really like him too.
(Besides, I had a gut feeling that Howard would return to CFNY, because he and Fred had become good buddies.) Humble and Fred are clever, funny, spontaneous, honest, animated -- love that group of animated shots of Howard -- and that front cover!
They are definitely a cut above some of those other radio jocks who rely on contests and come-ons to keep their listeners tuned to the radio.
