Welcome to 99.9 The Bay.
On January 1, 1970 two cities joined together and Thunder Bay was born. Founded on a true sense of community, pride and a feeling of home, the young city thrived with the help of hard working people with giant hearts.
Throughout the 70s and 80s as the city grew, out community’s playlist was born. The music scene in Thunder Bay thrived with live bands and nightclubs that were all about the music. We jammed into the Inn-Towner, The Expressway Lounge and Buttons every weekend as the soundtrack of our life was born.
Every once in awhile an up and coming band or group with hits we heard on the radio would perform at Fort William Gardens. Do you still have your ticket stub from 1975 when the Bee Gees introduced us to disco? Were you front and centre when AC DC wowed the crowd in the summer of 1980. The Guess Who, Foreigner, Rush and Tragically Hip all helped us create memories at the Gardens.
Then we moved to the Auditorium to hear Hall and Oates, The Doobie Brothers, Tom Cochrane and many more. Like the Bruce Springsteen song decreed it was our glory days. We were young and filled with big dreams.
Today, whenever we hear one of those hits from the 70s, 80s and 90s it takes us back to that summer night at the Gardens or the Auditorium. We remember the car we were driving. The date we were on. The bad hair doo we thought was so cool. It is why when we hear that song we reach for the radio so we can turn up the feel good. Wouldn’t it be great if you could feel like that every day?
