Pat O’Day Memory: Erik Lacitis in Seattle Times – 1984


Puget Sound Media would like to thank Gary “Shannon” Burleigh for his help in keeping us “in the loop” on all things KJR. From a personal viewpoint, Gary said upon Pat’s passing yesterday:

“He was always bigger than life and we were better for it.  Who can look at a radio and not think about him?   Who can look at an old 45 and not think about him?  Who can hear the roar of a hydro and not think about him?  Who can say Seattle or Northwest and not think of him?  He was part of our identity.” Gary Burleigh
