    Got to work with Keith at my first commercial job at KLIQ. Wonderful guy to this greenhorn back in 1969…

    Very sad news. Here is a 1974 Oregon Journal newspaper article on KPCC with quotes from Keith.

    Meant Keith in late 1979 (Had a girlfriend that was part of his student class on Radio & TV at PCC)..He really ran a great program for many, many years. You think of all the broadcasters – radio – TV that got into the business because of his encouragement and training it has to be in the 1000’s of the years.
