Sam Lawson’s Audio Vault: Gary Lockwood’s Last Show at KGW


Gary Lockwood and Joe Cooper, KGW, Portland, 1974

Or is it Joe Cooper and Gary Lockwood? You decide. This is a portion of Gary’s last show on KGW before transferring to sister station KING. He’s training Joe Cooper to take over the 6-10pm slot. It opens at the end of a tongue-in-cheek tribute from Bruce Murdock.

Audio credit and thanks to Joe Cooper who shared this with me in 1978.

Runtime: 8:55
