About Viewing This Site
This site is intended to be viewed on a desktop computer. Fortunately, it also views well on an iPad or tablet of similar size. I do not recommend attempting to view this site on any device as small as a cell phone.
The surveys here are not scans of the originals but rather they have been retyped from the originals, one by one, the old-fashioned way, and this is primarily for clearer reading and to save server space. The surveys have been typed using web-friendly fonts commonly installed in computers running Windows, Mac and IOS . Do not change the default font size in your browser's preferences. If you need a closer view of the text use your browser's "zoom" control.
You will find here an extensive collection over 2300 surveys from the Vancouver radio stations that adopted the "Top 40" format at one time or other. Some series' of surveys have been styled to resemble the originals while other series' have been given original styles. Many of the typing idiosyncrasies and errors that were on the originals have been retained, although some corrections were necessary. Enjoy.

Update #32 - October 16, 2021
The recent additions include:
CKLG 1985 - all charts complete
CKLG 1986 - all charts complete
CKLG 1987 - all charts complete
These years saw the beginning of the famous Morning Zoo hosted by zookeepers Dean Hill and Graham Hatch, along with a strong supporting cast. Radio would never be the same.
The Index Pages for each of these years contain audio and other memorabilia listed as follows:
1. CKLG 1985
-Four audio clips including the a) Morning Zoo Shower Tape, b) Morning Zoo meets the Volcano, c) LG Hot Hits Jingle Montage, and d) LG 1985 AM Stereo Promo. All audio courtesy of RadioWest.ca
-Newspaper ads promoting the Morning Zoo and an article from the Vancouver Sun by columnist Denny Boyd.
2. CKLG 1986
-An audio clip featuring Morning Zookeeper Dean Hill trying to scam his listeners into thinking this is his last program. Courtesy of Owen Coppin.
-A YouTube video featuring a TV ad with Dean Hill promoting the Morning Zoo. Courtesy of Radio Rewinder.
-An oh yes, 1986 was the year of Expo 86 and somehow I couldn’t let that year go by without some reminder of that great event. So I engaged in a small act of self-indulgence by including, as a backdrop to the 1986 Index Page, a shot of Expo 86 at night taken on Kodachrome by yours truly, from the roof of the Via Rail station.
3. CKLG 1987
-Five audio clips including a) two Jingle montages, b) two Morning Zoo montages, and c) a short aircheck with late-night DJ John Buchanan (aka John Saboe). All audio courtesy of RadioWest.
-A Morning Zoo article from The Vancouver Province.
More Morning Zoo years, with charts, audio and memorabilia, will follow.
