Pat O’Day and Dick Curtis present The Rolling Stones


Regrets!, he’s had a few… especially about leaving concert promotion. As a long time Seattle radio listener during the sixties, I first tuned into KOL 1300am when Lan Roberts first worked the station before the Worlds Fair in Seattle. When Lan moved over to KJR, I was soon to follow and was introduced to some of the greatest disc jockeys of all time, including Dick Curtis. Dick Memories opened up my memories, and for others who grew up during the sixties, I’m sure will not only retrigger some of those memories, and with great delight – Mike Easton
Come inside and read much more….

seannajefferson2 (1)

It took exactly one conversation with a PD for Seanna Jefferson to get her first on air gig. I mean, sure, she had to bust her ass for a while before that conversation, but when the time came, even she was surprised and how quickly she got mic time
