Does anyone remember the song (I think there were actually two) that was on the jukebox the entire time the place was there? They would put in new records, but a couple of songs always stayed...

Really? I would have thought that they had their own for a long time, but not at the mall location?

Anybody remember the old radio remote show from the look out from CJIB? One time we heard our Uncle on it. (We were expecting him).

Trying to remember what they called out.

Nope, CKAL had the location up the hill there, but CJIB did the remote bits at the lookout, and were doing it before CKAL existed.

Yes. They used to do it from the Kal Lake lookout. I think they would just talk to whoever was there.
I remember one day it was Jim Byrnes. Don't remember what it was called though....hmmmm...reaching way back....
