Nice article. I see he spoke with World Famous and Jason.
Yeah, World Famous and Hardly Famous
Better to be Hardly Famous than Famous in your own Mind….lots of that in radio.
By the way… we now have three Erik Lacitis columns at PSM. This one, then yesterday I posted one on Pat from the 1980s. And back in April I posted an old one about Tom Murphy and Michael Mates who helped on the ‘World Famous’ show.
Eric does an outstanding job in recounting the era. I think when Eric goes, so does the mid 60s to early 70s era of Seattle. Anyway, I thought I would share this link from My Northwest https://mynorthwest.com/2074193/legendary-northwest-dj-pat-oday-passes-away/
KIRO has recognized quite a few of the areas veteran personalities, through interviews and stories from historian Feliks Banel.
