Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame DJs Pat O’Day & Marco Collins Count Down Seattle’s Top Songs


Generations collide as MARCO COLLINS invites fellow SEATTLE radio legend PAT O’DAY to co-host the “SEATTLE TOP 20 COUNTDOWN” on FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 28th at 3p (PT), when they showcase the most important songs to emerge from SEATTLE during their respective eras of the ’60s and the ’90s. COLLIN’s weekly online feature on JET CITY STREAM covers the best-selling albums from SEATTLE artists, based on local record store sales.

With their influence on music separated by three decades, the two personalities’ expertise covers a lot of ground, particularly regarding SEATTLE’s contributions to contemporary music. O’DAY is a legendary promoter and DJ of the ’60s who worked with the like of JIMI HENDRIX, LED ZEPPELIN, THE ROLLING STONES and BOB DYLAN. Similarly, COLLINS helped bring bands like NIRVANA, PEARL JAM, BECK and WEEZER to national prominence, and generated early attention to the grunge genre that is a pillar of ’90s music.

COLLINS is best known as the flagship DJ and MD at Alternative KNDD (107.7 THE END) during the ’90s grunge explosion. O’DAY is probably best known as the afternoon drive personality at Top 40 KJR-A in ’60s; he eventually became PD and GM. He later owned KYYX (FM 96.5 RADIO) in SEATTLE in the mid-’70s and early ’80s. COLLINS and O’DAY also have the distinct honor of being the only two DJs from the PACIFIC NORTHWEST to be included in the ROCK AND ROLL HALL OF FAME.

JET CITY STREAM emerged onto the SEATTLE Music scene on APRIL 11th, 2012 via the Internet at http://www.jetcitystream.com to support and celebrate local music, musicians and businesses with a unique, online digital entertainment platform.
