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!
