    Thinking of Toronto radio history, I’d have to look at

    Al Boliska (CHUM)

    Wally Crouter (CFRB)

    Andy Barrie (CFRB and CBC)

    Don Daynard (CHFI)

    Tom Rivers (CHUM and CFTR)

    Bob McCown (CJCL/FAN 590) – no intention of dating him, believe me, but look at the success of his show





    Calgary influential announcers:

    William “Bible Bill” Aberhart (CFCN)

    Ernest Manning (CFCN)

    Ralph Klein (CFCN)

    Ed Whalen

    Peter Maher (CFFR and CFAC)

    Gerry Forbes (CJAY-FM)

    Dave Rutherford (CKYL, CHQR)

    These are at least the big, recognisable names.
