During the years from 1976 to 1978 it was a must to have a 630 CHED logo on their vehicle as the CHED Guys were often in the CHED Van looking for stickers and giving away $100 bills.

The studios at that time were located at 100006-107 Street. 630 CHED was one of the first radio stations in North America to introduce a computerized music system that announcers could view and select music from a playlist on a screen. There were many well known personalities that made their home playing the music or reading the news/sports and kept 630 CHED in the forefront until FM Radio started to draw listeners from the AM frequency. It was in 1993 that CHED stopped the music and became a Talk Radio Station.
