History of Funny 820

The radio officially signed on-air for the first time in November 1959 at the 1280 AM frequency under the CHIQ with 5,000-watt power. Its initially broadcasting format was classical music. Later in the 1960s, it adopted a rock and roll format. In 1965, its broadcasting power was increased to 10,000 watts day and 5,000 watts night. (Ted) Rogers Broadcasting Ltd purchased the channel from CHIQ, Ltd in 1967. FM also changed its call letter to CHAM. On November 1, 1967, it launched a “Middle of the road” music format.

Moffat Communications, Ltd. acquired CJJD in 1981, and Moffat changed its call sign back to CHAM in 1982. In July 1983, FM moved to country format and broadcasting in AM stereo.
