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!
1Seeing REO Speedwagon at the Memorial Coliseum in the 70’s was amazing. They were one of the most energetic bands I had ever seen, and the songs transcended the studio versions. Neal Doughty, founding member, and the keyboard player was a big part of what I loved and still love about the band. In all the years of being at KGON, I never interviewed anyone from REO before, and this was a true pleasure. Neal talks about the very beginning of the band and how they got their name, the Midwest work ethic that helped them get that first record deal, and their endless touring. Down to earth, and a pleasure to talk to, I hope you enjoy this as much as I did! ~Iris
