FROM CONNOISSEUR JON PEARKIN'S REEL RADIO FILES - DJZigZag and SWEET DADDY FONK's 2001 CHMB-AM 1320 SOUL XMAS RADIO SHOW . . . ALL CHRISTMAS ALL THE TIME . . .


                                    Photo: Shepperd Wong

DJZigZag SOUL CHRISTMAS - CHMB - VANCOUVER, B.C. CANADA DECEMBER 9, 2001
The original 2011 REELRADIO Holiday Presentation again this year of this aircheck marks the sixteenth anniversary of the CHMB broadcast on December 9, 2001. There were some parts missing in the original recording, so a few segments from the December 2, 2001 show were merged into this exhibit.
Bill Reiter's impact on Vancouver radio is substantial. His voice is still heard most days on the radio as far away as Edmonton, Alberta. This special All Christmas, All The Time show is a continuation of his franchise Groovin' Blue show, featuring "New World African Music", comprised of "Jazz, Soul, Funk, R&B, Reggae, Blues and Gospel". 


Groovin' Blue, produced and hosted by Bill Reiter, first aired on Vancouver radio station CKLG-FM in October, 1967. CKLG management wanted to air a unique program that echoed the type originally hosted in San Francisco by Russ "The Moose" Syracuse on KYA's "All Night Flight". Since that original show, the Groovin' Blue format has aired on other
Vancouver radio stations including CKST-FM (Coast 1040), CJVB-AM/1470, and CHMB-AM/1320.
For this special Holiday show, Bill is DJZigZag, and his co-host Sunny Wong appears as Sweet Daddy Fonk. Sunny never worked in radio, other than with Bill. One promo that includes short clips from Wolfman Jack on XERB and Art Laboe offers a clue for Reiter's influences. He dedicates a song to the fans of Groovin' Blue who are incarcerated ("things are bad, but they could be worse") and tells a story about a poor pal receiving a Rooty Toot Toy for his only Christmas present. 

                                     Sunny S.D.F. and Joon Guy Joe - the Rooty Toot Boy ! !
