Top Ten Tuesday: CKTS (900 AM, Sherbrooke PQ), 8/1/80

From Wikipedia:

CKTS was an English language Canadian radio station located in Sherbrooke, Quebec. It broadcast on 900 kHz with a power of 10,000 watts as a class B station, using a directional antenna which had a slightly directional pattern during the day and a much tighter pattern at night, to protect Class-A clear-channel station XEW-AM in Mexico City at night.

The station was shut down in 2006 by its owner, Corus Entertainment.

Here’s their Top Ten from August 1, 1980.

  1. The Spinners, “Cupid”/”I’ve Loved You For A Long Time”
  2. The Rolling Stones, “Emotional Rescue”
  3. Peter Gabriel, “Games Without Frontiers”
  4. Billy Joel, “It’s Still Rock ‘n’ Roll To Me”
  5. Genesis, “Misunderstanding”
  6. Electric Light Orchestra, “I’m Alive”
  7. Olivia Newton-John, “Magic”
  8. Elton John, “Little Jeannie”
  9. Rocky Burnette, “Tired Of Toein’ The Line”
  10. Burton Cummings, “Fine State Of Affairs”

And that’s Top Ten Tuesday for August 2, 2022.

        1. Right, and since this was Canada, they’ll be even more different, because they have (or had, anyway) the Canadian content laws, which explains why Burton Cummings had the #1 single which I hadn’t heard until yesterday…
