Paisley is a type of pattern found very often on fabrics. It looks like vegetation, and originated in Persia. It originally was a religious symbol in the Hindu religion, much like the yin-yang in ancient Chinese religion. It often takes the form of a teardrop. Paisley was a very popular design in the 1960's and 1970's. It was mainly printed on ties, bedsheets, as mentioned in the book, and drapes. The most famous use of paisley at this time was John Lennon's Rolls Royce painted with this design. In the late 80'/early 90's, this design was used popularly as a sign of gang affiliation, most notably with the Bloods and Crips. This connotation continues today. The origin of the name paisley comes from the Scottish town of Paisley, where soldiers went after returning from Persia with scarves of the same design.

CHED Chart

(found on page 12)
CHED was the most popular Top 40 AM station in Edmonton. It had a large market share in
North America in the 1960's and 1970's. After FM radio was widely used, in the 1980's, it
lost its popularity. Faced with this problem, the station then turned to news, talk, and
sports, with no musical content. Its current hosts are Bryan Hall, Bob Layton, Dave Rutherford,
and Leslie Primeau. The CHED chart, discontinued in the 1980's, listed the Top 40 songs of
each week. CHED is moderately successful in its new format, but it cannot compare to what it once was. You can listen to some older audiocasts here.

Northgate is a shopping centre in North Edmonton. It contains over 100 shops and services. It was originally called Northwood Mall, so the author calling the mall Northgate is an anachronism. It is anchored by three stores: Safeway, Future Shop, and Zellers. Its popularity has waned in recent years, due to the construction of the West Edmonton Mall, once the largest mall in the world. It was built in the early 1960's, for Woodward's department store, with the growth of suburbs. It has recently given a revitalization, with the addition of many shops. it has also changed its format, now a power centre, which is outward-facing. It has been renamed the Northgate Centre, and the exterior has been redone in red brick.
