When C-FUN dropped out of the Top 40 format in September 1967, it adopted a mixed format consisting of  "Easy Listening" music, along with some talk radio.  Later it morphed into an all-news station and in 1969 it adopted the new call letters CKVN which signified "Voice of News" (some say Vancouver News).  This format failed to catch on with the listening public, lasting only until the Spring of 1970 when the station decided to return to Top 40, going head-to-head once more with CKLG.  In January 1973 CKVN was purchased by CHUM Limited in Toronto and by September of that year the station regained its call letters CFUN.

Presented here are the charts from the brief few years when it was CKVN.
