Your home for CKCO-TV

This site was designed by a former employee and is now in the hands of a current employee.  This is all done to not only remember the productions done at CKCO-TV but more importantly to remember the men and women who worked together under the roof at 864 King Street West, Kitchener and it’s bureaus.

We are always looking for more information about CKCO-TV as well as any pictures and memorabilia anyone has. Please feel free to email anything you might wish to share with us at info@ckco-history.com

No video is hosted on this site and this site has no affiliation to nor receives any support from CTV-KIT.

    You have a photo of a Song Spinner Trio on the website. The Joe Carlo “Song Spinners” actually was much more than a trio. It was a chorus of ladies who sometimes had male singers to accompany them. My wife, Marlene Faulhafer, was a member and soloist with the group in 1954-55 but left the group in early 1956 as she getting ready for her wedding. The SS’s did some off camera engagments, too! They sometimes practiced in the Kitchener Audiorium organ loft where Joe was the organist when the room was available. On one occasion, he had Marlene sing a solo between periods of a Junior B hockey game! A bit unusual but well received by the crowd. Joe was a talented musician and chorus leader and a nice guy! As I recall, Joe had some involvment with “Tiny Talent Time”, too. It sure brings back memories! I have some photo’s of the Song Spinners, and a few I took on the set during a performance. If you are interested I can emaill some to you. Blessings, Bob Faulhafer
