BRUNO, SK – Tourists and scientists from across the province have congregated to Bruno, SK, after the baffling discovery of a grain truck whose radio still plays CK 750: The Best of 60s and 70s, despite the fact that the radio station had been discontinued and replaced by Beach Radio, which plays 80s and 90s hits. The grain truck in question is a 1978 Chevrolet C65 owned by a local farmer, Joseph Poncelet (63). According to Poncelet, he thought nothing of the truck’s AM radio playback until his grandson, Jonathon Poncelet (26), had driven the truck to the shop for some routine maintenance and noticed the discrepancy in the radio station.

“The old 750 had definitely changed to Beach Radio at least a year ago, probably more by now,” said Jonathon. “I also don’t think the truck radio’s been on anything aside from 600 and 750 and it doesn’t even have FM, so I was expecting one of the two stations. What I wasn’t expecting was In the Year 2525 by Zager and Evans.” Word had spread quickly in the area after a number of local handymen and electronic technicians inspected the farming vehicle and determined that there was nothing wrong with the vehicle, despite it playing a radio station that is no longer in circulation.

“We had studied the vehicle for about three hours,” said Dr. Darren Parsons, an Electronic Engineering professor brought in to investigate the anomaly from the University of Calgary. “We did get side-tracked for about an hour of that time listening to Paul Harvey’s The Rest of The Story, but at least I can say that my team and I didn’t walk away from the inspection without learning anything. Did you know that Veronica Lake had a pilot’s licence and once flew solo from L.A. to New York in her own plane? I didn’t, that’s for sure.”

While Dr. Parsons and his team continued to reverse engineer the enigma, he told reporters that while they do know that the music from the 60s and 70s is obviously from the old station, they have yet to determine if the commercials for The Northern Lights Casino and Melody Motors are from the new station or ghosts of the past.
