The 1050 CHUM Tribute Site
Hosted by Rock Radio Scrapbook
This site is a tribute to Allan Waters, the Waters family and everyone who worked at 1050 CHUM as a music station from 1957 until the music era ended in 2009.
Allan Waters bought CHUM in December of 1954 and on May 27, 1957 launched Canada's first 24-hour rock and roll radio station.
On this site, you'll find bios of CHUM personalities, plus photos, memorabilia and every CHUM chart (front/back/inside) in pristine condition from May 27, 1957 until April 26, 1975 when the personal CHUM chart was discontinued.
A very special thanks to Jim Waters for his unwavering support of all things CHUM. Enjoy CHUMbugs!
