Walter is a masterful story teller as was his founding partner Bob Hall. The families have gone on to develop stations in Salmon Arm, Revelstoke, Invermere, Golden, Kelowna, and a television Cable system Sun Country Cable in Salmon Arm that was eventually sold to Shaw Cable.
This is a timeless story of young men with a vision that proves as true today as it was the first time they put the needle on the record.
Do you remember the AM transmitter towers standing on lower Fly Hills. Those two blinking lights were on until a short few years ago when CKXR became an FM station. Known as the Big R and now EZ Rock, we take pride in reflecting our community and the caring nature it holds within.
Great speaking with Walter Gray. Walter was a founding partner in CKXR and CKCR that opened the same week in Revelstoke. Quit a feat for two young men 25 and 34. Their legacy and vision of community programing within radio lives on today.
