CHOM 97 7 and Virgin Radio flip for April Fools’ Day – Bell Media

CHOM 97 7 and Virgin Radio flip for April Fools’ Day

— April 1st, 2014

This morning, listeners may have heard Katy Perry on CHOM 97 7 and AC/DC on Virgin Radio. Their ears weren’t lying. Between 7am and 8am, the Bell Media sister stations flipped frequencies for fun, to mark April Fools’ Day! CHOM 97 7 broadcasted Mornings Rock with Terry and Heather B. on Virgin Radio and likewise, Freeway & Natasha in the Morning, aired on CHOM 97 7.

It’s not often that the worlds of pop & rock collide, but they did this morning resulting in a few confused and concerned listeners. Virgin listener Marie said: “I thought my car radio was broken!”. CHOM listener Steven called to say that he “nearly gagged in his own mouth” upon hearing Lady Gaga on CHOM! 

Not to worry, the joke is over, and CHOM 97 7 is back to being The Spirit Of Rock, while Virgin Radio remains Montreal’s #1 Hit Music Station!
