The very funny co-host of The Mark and Dave Show on KPAM, Dave Anderson, lost his two year battle with cancer Sunday night, 2/7/16. Mark posted on Facebook:
I lost my best friend tonight. Through the many conversations I have had with Dave about the potential for this moment, it’s still difficult to accept. I can tell you his wonderful wife and loving family were with him, easing his and everyone else’s burden, a beautiful sight to behold. Of course, there are lots of tears, including my own. Buddy, buddy, buddy. Rest in Peace. UPDATE: We’ll have an “open mic” for Dave on the show today, we invite you to please share your Dave memories. More later.
Sad day. Worked with Dave at KKGT, back-in-the-day and when he was teamed with Mark at KEX. I will cherish the last Christmas card I received this past year. A radio brother gone too soon. Honored to have known him.
I never was able to meet him but listened to him on radio and TV for over 20 years. What has impressed me the most is the comments on the Oregonian page. There is not a single negative comment. That never happens on oregonlive.
