October 1977: Can retired Montréal Canadiens’ legend Henri Richard deliver three morning sportscasts on the Great 98? That is the challenge put forth by CKGM sports director Jim Bay. If Henri succeeds, Jim vows to don a waiter’s apron and serve the patrons at Henri’s Park Avenue Brasserie that very evening. You guessed it! The Pocket Rocket delivers the hat trick on the radio in the morning and many members of CKGM’s Super 70s staff just happen to drop by in the evening to make sure Big Jim is delivering on his end of the deal.

Enjoying a round of Super 70s “stubbies”, left to right: David Wolfe (CKGM Promotions Director and Jock), Tom Castle (Sales), Doug Price (Production), Tony Van Doorn (Op, in Habs sweater), Mark Burns (News Director, standing), Hillary McLeod (News), a beaming Henri, a very busy Jim Bay (nice apron!), Danny Hughes (Op), Laurent Lavigne (News, almost seen), Greg Sullivan (Sales) and Steve Naymark (Sales).

Santé à toute la gang !

CKGM is home to one of the zaniest morning men ever, anywhere, Ralph Lockwood (1972 to 1982)
By the way... how's your bird?

September 1979: The CKGM / Loyola Super Slackers prior to taking on the legendary Harlem Globetrotters at the Forum, proceeds to the Ste-Justine and Montreal Children's Hospitals.

Top, left-to-right: Buster Bodean, Marc “Mais Oui” Denis, Big Jim Bay, Almost-as-Big Dan Willmott and MC Ralph Lockwood (in the dapper Dorion Suit. Ralphie can't play because of an apparent last minute injury...a “sore bird”).

Kneeling, left-to-right: Mitch Snaden, Doug “Curly Neal” Price and traffic reporter Omega Medina...who always knows how to get out of a jam.

The final score? Don't ask.

May 1978: the Montréal Canadiens have just won yet another Cup. WVBF Boston DJ Jeff Baker, who lost his Bruins Stanley Cup bet, to Marc “Mais Oui’’ Denis, visits CKGM prior to the Habs mammoth victory parade. It will be a long and messy adventure down Ste-Catherine St. for Jeff in his Boston Bruins jersey!

Left to right: CKGM Promotions Director & jock David Wolfe, Jeff Baker and a jubilant “Mais Oui’’.




Les Canadiens de Montréal, 24 Coupes Stanley

May 1979: six of the Montréal Canadiens' 24
Stanley Cup Championships occur during the
Super 70s, including four in a row culminating in
1979. That spring, they are to meet the New York
Rangers in the finals...and The CKGM Scrimmage

December 1975: the fall radio ratings are out and 980 CKGM has made huge gains and is placing ever closer to the top of Montréal’s English and French radio landscape. This is just one of the shots of the many revelers at the ratings party in the offices following announcement of the results.
