CKGW WAS TORONTO’S RADIO VOICE OF A FAMOUS DISTILLERY DURING PROHIBITION
With studios in the King Edward Hotel and transmitters in Bowmanville, CKGW was the radio voice of the Gooderham and Worts Distillery. It was on-air in the 1920’s and 30’s, coinciding with the US Prohibition era. <PHOTOS – City of Toronto Archives>
FULL DISCLOSURE: While the United States was under strict alcohol control around this time, TORONTO was busy making excellent booze in the Distillery District, and shipping it across the border.
