CFCO Radio 2012

March 25, 2012

Radio Station: CFCO 92.9FM & 630 AM
Home: Chatham – Kent Ontario
Year: 2012
First Aired: 1926 (AM Station)
Format: Country Music
Website: http://country929.com/

Location: 117 Keil Drive South, Chatham, ON, N7M 3H3
Phone: 519-354-2200

Notes: Country 92.9 & AM 630
On March 3, 2008 at 9AM, after sixteen years as an oldies station, “Classic Gold 630” came to an end with the song “The Beat Goes On” by Sonny and Cher, after which CFCO signed on the new country format with “Play Something Country” by Brooks & Dunn. Opening the station was thirty two year CFCO vet George Brooks. This is the first time Chatham-Kent has had its own country music station, although now-sister station CHYR in nearby Leamington was a country station for most of the 1990s and sister station CJSP, also in Leamington, debuted its own country format prior to CFCO’s change. Besides CFCO and CJSP, other country stations owned by Blackburn Radio are CHOK in Sarnia-Lambton, CJWF-FM in Windsor, and CKNX in Wingham.

In March 2011 CFCO began referring the station as “Country 92-9 FM CFCO” with no mention of 630AM.
