    Wow! Sorry to hear that. I did not know he was 10 years older than I am. I remember him well on KISN Radio….Ah, the good ol’ days when Top 40 Radio was king!

    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.

    KISN ran a three and a half hour tribute to Pat last Sunday afternoon. It contains a lot of his airchecks and some of his favorite music. One of the airchecks used is a two reel unscoped aircheck that Pat recorded of his KISN 10th anniversary show in December, 1971. It’s by far the best sounding Pattee aircheck I’ve ever heard. The reels were provided by Pat’s family for us to share.

    The tribute show and both reels of the 10th anniversary show are on the KISN Soundcloud page that you can find here:

    Lots of other KISN goodies there too. If you click on the play arrow the tribute show just plays. If you click on “KISN Good Guys” it takes you to the Soundcloud page.

    Oh my goodness, I remember listening to Pat on KWIK in Pocatello when I was growing up. In my previous lifetime, I started working at KWIK in 1964 a few years after Pat moved on to Portland. My radio career ended in 1976 when I moved to Eugene and began a new job total outside radio. I have, however, kept my fingers partially in the field. I spent many days and nights helping build am and fm stations in southeast Idaho. What was top of the line equipment then, is now junk. I remember when CBS Labs introduced AudiMax and Volumax. They really changed things. My how things have changed. What was live then, is now computerized.

    On another note, one of the people I worked with at one time was Larry Barwick. He came to KWIK soon after leaving a lengthy career at KOMA. This big powerhouse in OK City could be heard everywhere at night. If you lived in a small market with no “top 40” station, this is what you listened to at night. I grew up listening to Larry and then wound up working with him for a while. Small world. Just wondering. Not exactly sure of the dates. After all, it was a long time ago.
