Celebrating the 35th Anniversary of Ottawa's legendary CLUB 747!
Celebrating CLUB 747 is really celebrating the vision, concrete efforts and long term dedication of CKCU FM alumnae LEN PUCKERIN (pictured). After starting as a special co-host on THE GROOVE, LEN would continue with shows on CKCU and CHOU FM. His CLUB 747 disco would appear and reappear in a variety of locations over three and a half decades - keeping up a constant interest in the Soul, Hip Hop and Funk of the 1970's and 1980's. That is a rare accomplishment that has left a lasting impact on thousands throughout the National Capital Region. Here are some of his own words about the subject: "During 1978 - 1991 Mr Ebony, Having Established Le Club 747 @ Agostino's Restaurant in Hull Quebec in the Summer of 83.
