When I moved here in’76, he was already a “legend.” Keep, Walker and L.B. Lenny were all working on the air when I arrived and others, now retired, whose names became inscribed into PDX radio culture hadn’t even hit the Portland market yet except for B.A. grinding away at 1480.
Never heard Pat on the air, then again, I never listened to Top 40 radio since I was 13 years old. B.A. told me stories about him when we worked at KVAN together. I went to see him at some club where Pat did some gig. That was the only time I heard him.
