In the early 70s Lee Rogers, who was well known as a country jock in the PNW at early KMPS and later KUPL, hired me at KBFW. At the time, he was Lan Rogers and he was the PD. Those were his early days, his only other radio job had been at KBAM. I want to do a piece on him, but the only sound I can find is a youtube video in which he is out of the biz, visiting the old studio and he is clearly very ill. It was shortly before he passed. I am wondering if you would consider posting on your site a notice to see if any of your followers might have access to audio of Lee. He was so popular in country radio that he received several national awards. It is surprising to me that there are not some obvious sound snippets around. Thanks.
