Happy belated birthday CJSR!
The very first FM broadcast took place on Saturday, January 7, 1984. Steve Cumming was given the honour of being the host. Cumming had left CJSR the previous year to pursue graduate work at Simon Fraser University but decided to extend his Christmas vacation in Edmonton for a few days to accept the invitation to do the first broadcast. He chose Joni Mitchell’s “You Turn Me On, I’m A Radio” as the first tune to grace the airwaves at 88.5 FM. That afternoon, the station was filled with long-time volunteers, staff, and supporters, all justifiably proud to be on hand for CJSR’s debut on Edmonton’s FM dial.
Here we are 28 years later. Still amazing volunteers some long standing, some brand new. The support for CJSR is still strong. Congratulations on being 28.
