Events

  • June 18 - Controversial KOA/Denver radio talk show host Alan Berg gunned down in driveway of his home.
  • Sports writer Ralph Barbieri joined KNBR to host his own sports talk show.
  • In October, CKLW-AM in Windsor, Ontario, the former "Big 8" Top 40 giant plagued by falling ratings for years, fires 79 staffers and goes mostly automated in preparation for a format change to Music of Your Life on January 1, 1985. CKLW's FM sister station CFXX experiments with a Top 40/Rock hybrid format called "94 Fox FM" in some dayparts, but its application to make "The Fox" a full-time format is denied by the CRTC and the experiment lasts only a few months.
