Working at KGON in the late 80's was a big part of my early broadcasting career. I have great memories from that time in Portland and at KGON. Playing timeless Rock Classic that were produced when budgets for recording were so high and the psycho acoustics and analog warmth made listening such an enjoyable experience. Mix that audio Phatness with today’s HD and it is better sounding then ever! KGON Rocks with a perfect amount of cowbell!
Friday afternoon. Usually people are looking forward to heading out the door and on to the weekend. I was spending today looking forward to talking to the legendary Grammy Award winning guitarist, Albert Lee. He’s played with everyone you can imagine…Eric Clapton, the Everley Brothers, Willie Nelson, Bill Wyman, Dave Edmunds, Rodney Crowell, Emmylou Harris, and so many more that he mentions in this interview.
Albert Lee will be appearing at the Alberta Rose Theater with Portland’s own Terry Robb on Tuesday, July 16th.
A documentary is being made of his amazing career in celebration of his upcoming 70th birthday in December, and a couple of great concerts with many of the people he’s played with are coming up in 2014. One in London, and one in California.
Enjoy the interview. He even talks about the time he went fishing in Portland with Eric Clapton, no joke!!
