I’m blowing the dust off things I’ve been trying to get to for years. I came across an old recording of Ray Horn on KGW radio from October 1959. I can’t recall who gave it to me. I just see the initials “alg” and 2012 down in the corner. If anyone knows, please let me know so they can be credited.
If you were up past midnight, this is what you might be listening to in Portland in 1959.
I worked with Ray Horn at KKEY. He had a segment on “Old Portland”, where an old lady called in and mentioned a couple of interesting things. She said that when the Burnside Bridge was built, the general consensus was that we’d never be able to use that many lanes. The one that got my attention though was when she said that when the Broadway Bridge was built, the thinking was that it probably wouldn’t be used very much because, “it was too far north”!
