2XL turn 75 (hear Brad March as a jock)

Staff Writer

2XL are celebrating their 75th birthday today.

Many memories are being shared on the station as well as on their Facebook page.

Some fast facts about the station…

  • 2XL stood for 'to excel'
  • Before aligning with the ski industry in the 70's they ran everything from horse racing, book reading sessions and radio serials
  • Rumour has it, in a storm years ago their satellite dish came loose and blew down the street where one listener thought it was a UFO
  • Ex announcers include Phil O'Neil (Ugly Phil) and Brad March (hear their interview with him below)
