Sam Lawson’s Audio Vault: Goodbye To Gary Lockwood (KGW Aircheck)


More from Gary Lockwood and Joe Cooper, KGW, Portland 1974

With the news of Gary’s passing, this tape seems sadly appropriate as Gary and Joe Cooper celebrate Gary’s last hour at KGW. Thanks again to Joe for letting me dub this in 1978. And thanks to Gary for the many hours of radio fun and entertainment he gave us.

Runtime: 12:00

I don’t know if there’s any hidden meaning, but right after Gary’s last words, the cassette decided to eat itself. Insert Twilight Zone theme here.
