If you’re of a certain age, you may have grown up with CFNY-FM/Toronto (now 102.1 The Edge) during the Spirit of Radio years, which extended from roughly 1977 through to 1991. It was an amazing time for both alternative music and radio. There’s a group of us that believe this era needs to be memorialized with a documentary.
We’ve started down the road towards making this a reality, but we’re still looking for material. This includes you in a CFNY t-shirt or hat or at a concert with a CFNY banner or a concert ticket with CFNY on it? That pic of you and that cool artist together before it was called that stupid selfie thing! We’re looking for material that may be used in the documentary. We need your help! Especially video which is so rare! Or audio! I know you’ve been dying to go through all your old stuff. It’s Spring! Perfect time!
We’re especially interested in home movies and video of CFNY events, concerts, the station and personalities. And you on staff during that era, we need to hear from you, too. We’ve been trying to find many of you, but you seem to have fallen off the grid.
If you can help, lemme know at [email protected]. Deadline is Monday, May 3. We wanna get things into production this summer.
