Businessman established Top 40 radio, MuchMusic
A money-losing station at the outset, CHUM became broadcasting empire
By Fred LANGAN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Monday, December 5, 2005, Page A3
Allan WATERS, who died Saturday at the age of 84, started Top 40 radio in Canada, making a huge success of CHUM, the small money-losing Toronto radio station he bought in 1954. He built his stake in CHUM into a radio and television empire that included Toronto's CITY-TV and other television stations across the country.
CHUM went on the air in 1945 and was Toronto's fifth radio station. It broadcast on a weak signal and only from sunrise to sunset. Mr. WATERS, who had made some money in advertising and the pharmaceutical business, bought the station in 1954 from a man he worked for, Jack PART.
He took his time learning the radio business and the station began to break even. He increased its power to 50,000 watts -- the maximum allowed in North America. He also started to listen to recordings of the kind of radio stations that were making money in the United States. He liked the style of the Storz family of Omaha, Neb., which is credited with inventing Top 40 radio on their U.S. stations.
In a speech in May of 1957, Mr. WATERS told the small staff at CHUM: "I haven't been in the radio business as long as anyone in this room, but if I was in the shoe business and operating a poor shoe store, I think I would find out who is running a good shoe store and copy his style. CHUM is going to be patterned after a Storz station. As Storz owns five stations and is first in each market, it's actually not a bad pattern to follow."
All Shook Up by Elvis Presley was the No. 1 song on CHUM's Top 40 radio when it started on May 27, 1957. Within five weeks, CHUM's slice of the audience went from 5 per cent to 24 per cent. By 1958, its 1050 CHUM was the No. 1 radio station in Toronto. By 1968, CHUM Ltd. was listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange and Mr. WATERS was a rich man.
He was born in east-end Toronto. At 16, he finished school and went to work as an office boy for $16 a week. Mr. PART, his employer, ran a successful patent medicine operation. Mr. WATERS worked his way up the ladder in sales and advertising. All his life he would say modestly, "I'm just a salesman."
The war interrupted his business career as he served overseas with the Royal Canadian Air Force from 1942 to 1946. He returned to work for Mr. PART, who had also started York Broadcasting and established CHUM at the end of the war.
CHUM's success allowed the WATERS empire to expand. He had the rights for Muzak in Canada. In 1963, he started CHUM-FM and later bought a television station in Barrie, north of Toronto. He was frustrated when he was not allowed to move the station's transmitter closer to Toronto to tap into the larger metropolitan market.
Expansion into television came slowly. He bought into the Maritimes, but failed to win regulatory approval to buy CFCF in Montreal. With his television stations he became one of the owners of CTV, the private television network that at the time was a kind of co-operative.
Perhaps his biggest success in television occurred in 1981, when he bought the floundering CITY-TV. He left the charismatic Moses ZNAIMER in charge, but the station was owned by CHUM Ltd. It expanded into pop video with MuchMusic, as successful and innovative as Top 40 radio in the 1950s. This decade, 1050 CHUM.com became the world's first all Internet radio station.
"Everyone criticized him when he [went with the Top 40 format]," his son, Jim WATERS, said on the weekend. "They said: 'Allan, you must be crazy. You're not going to really play that loud music are you?' Even my mother criticized him."
The son, now chairman of CHUM, said his father had a knack for picking winners, whether it was Top 40 radio or a new local television format.
"I think a very significant move that Dad made was buying CITY-TV in Toronto. We weren't in television. The move into specialty television was groundbreaking with MuchMusic," Mr. WATERS said.
Allan WATERS didn't have a gift for picking records or television programs, but he knew how to pick people who did.
"His great talent wasn't as a programmer, but as a salesman. Mr. WATERS was a super salesman. He had a system where he knew what every salesman and every station was doing week by week," said Senator Jerry GRAFSTEIN, who co-founded CITY-TV and worked with Mr. WATERS for decades.
His personal life was the opposite of his business life. While the music was flashy, he was not; while his station thrived on publicity, he was a private person. MuchMusic was hip; he sported a crew cut and glasses. Most entrepreneurs and business people in Canada are listed in Who's Who, but there was never an entry for Allan WATERS. He wasn't interested.
He also thought long hours were a waste of energy. Most days he went home to his wife at 5: 30. "If you work 20 hours [a day], you're doing too much or you're doing something wrong," he told a reporter.
Mr. WATERS was a frugal man. For many years he walked to work from his home in the neighbourhood of Leaside. His office was relatively modest. His companies almost never borrowed to make purchases. And in a business that thrives on global glitz, he never invested outside Canada.
He was generous and loyal to his employees and in a business where hiring and firing was the norm, even some disc jockeys and announcers -- such as Gord MARTINEAU at CITY-TV -- stayed with his stations for decades. Mr. WATERS did part company with announcer Larry SOLWAY after the boss refused to allow him to discuss a sex manual on the air. Later, CHUM Ltd. would own Sex-TV.
At his death, the CHUM empire Mr. WATERS built owned and operated 33 radio stations, 12 local television stations and 21 specialty channels, including MuchMusic and Space. It also controlled other sideline businesses, including Muzak.
When he died peacefully in his sleep Saturday morning in hospital, he was surrounded by family, including his wife of more than 50 years, Marjorie. He also leaves two sons; Ronald, deputy chairman, and Jim, chairman of CHUM Ltd. The funeral is private. A public memorial will be held on Wednesday in Toronto.

SMELLIE, Lt. Col. R.G., C.D./Q.C.
The death of Robert Gordon SMELLIE on Thursday, September 29, 2005 at Victoria General Hospital, brought to a close a lifetime of service to community, province and country. Bob is survived by his wife of 25 years, Jean and her daughter Penelope (Paul) INKSETTER; his first wife, Lois; their daughters Susan (Tsugio) KURUSHIMA in Victoria, Carol (George) GAMBY in Winnipeg, and Linda (Doug) GAGE in Calgary; grandchildren; Carmen and Brad KURUSHIMA, Christopher and Andrew GAMBY, and Scott and Graham GAGE; and great-granddaughter Emily GAGE. Also surviving are Bob's sister, Patricia PARTAKER of Winnipeg; brothers George (Taisia) of Winnipeg, and Logie (Dorothea) of Esterhazy, Saskatchewan. as well as numerous nieces, nephews, great-nieces and greatnephews. Bob was predeceased by his parents, George and Jessie SMELLIE of Russell and Winnipeg. His life began in 1923 at Russell, Manitoba., where Bob received his elementary and high school education. The service began when he interrupted his education at Brandon College and enlisted in the Canadian Army to serve in World War 2. Within weeks of surviving the D-Day landing at Juno Beach in Normandy, Bob was wounded and evacuated to England for treatment and recovery. Officer training followed, and he received his commission as a Lieutenant. Returning to Canada after the war, he completed his interrupted education, and married his fiancée, Lois COCHRANE of Silverton, who became mother of their three daughters. After obtaining his law degree, he acquired a legal practice in Russell. Several years later, he joined the Aikins MacAulay firm to practice law in Winnipeg. While still in Russell, Bob was elected to the provincial Legislature and served a period as Minister of Municipal Affairs with the Duff Roblin government. He subsequently chaired a provincial boundaries commission and, after retiring from the practice of law, served as chairman of the Municipal Board of Manitoba. Bob maintained a close relationship with his wartime regiment, the Royal Winnipeg Rifles and, in 1986, was appointed Honorary Lieutenant Colonel of the regiment. His service in the community included volunteer work at the Deer Lodge Centre, and with organizations like the Heart Foundation and the Manitoba and Canadian Bar Associations. After many years of membership and leadership at various levels with the Royal Canadian Legion, his service there reached a pinnacle in the early Seventies when he presided as Dominion President. Bob joined the Canadian Corps of Commissionaires in 1978 as a governor of the Manitoba Division. Serving in various provincial and national offices led to his selection as National Chairman in 1995. After 20 years of service, the Corps awarded him its highest honor - a Distinguished Service Medal. In 2003, he was awarded a Queen's Jubilee Medal. A Celebration of Bob's Life will be held in the Minto Armoury, 969 St. Matthews Ave., Winnipeg at 7: 00 p.m., on Tuesday, October 18.

He attended the Schotten Gymnasium where classmates recalled he was the tallest in the class, the worst in gymnastics and the funniest.

Among the Internees was Crown Prince Friedrich of Prussia and the former chef of the Ritz in London. So the internees ate royally on army rations. In 1941 they were released in Canada where he has lived ever since. He did panel shows on Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, wrote original scripts and English adaptations of German language scripts. He also did drama reviews for the Globe and Mail and tried his hand at directing which is where he met his future wife, Sheila CRAIG who was an actress. He also wrote for MacLeans, the Telegram and economic articles for the Financial Post. From 1981 to 1996 he was the Canadian Correspondent for the Neue Zuercher Zeitung based in Zurich writing Economic and political Analyses. During this time he traveled, often with his wife to some 65 countries as a foreign corespondent. He leaves his sister Ina and her husband Dipl.
