The CKFH Tribute Page - A Salute to #2 Radio!

Hosted by Rock Radio Scrapbook



They were Number-Two and proud of it.

CKFH, founded in 1951 by hockey broadcast pioneer Foster Hewitt, became a rock station on January 2, 1967, taking on long-time Top 40 kingpin CHUM in the battle for teenage ears in Toronto.

Gone was Mantovani, in were the Monkees. The Living Strings were replaced by the Lovin' Spoonful. James Last was supplanted by James Brown.

The New Sound had arrived at CKFH!

On this site, we are looking back at CKFH, the station that whimsically branded itself as Number-Two radio (because all the other radio stations are Number-One). While focus is on the rock years from 1967 to 1975, we'll also look at CKFH's history before and after that time frame. Enjoy this trip back in time when Number-Two radio was Number-One in our hearts!
