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!
In our hearts and our minds...Today is the 43rd anniversary of JIMI's passing into the next world. The date is etched in my brain forever. I took my first trip to Europe in 1970 and was flying into London's Heathrow airport on Sept 18th...an overnight flight from Boston. Landed that morning to hear the news that he was gone. I'm so pleased that his music has endured and that new generations of rockers are still discovering and being influenced by his genius. Celebrate JIMI!!!
