WGAN Portland (AM 560) is noting its 70th anniversary (August 1938) with a fun retrospective, both on-air and online.

www.560WGAN.com has some interesting press clippings and audio available on the 70th Anniversary Page -

and on the air -

they began Friday morning (8/1) with some recollections from many WGAN alum.

The on-air portion continues Saturday and Sunday morning with John McDonald (and you can do a listen-on-line thing at the above noted website).

Saturday morning will include Bud Sawyer, a former WGAN morning host for many years, plus a surprise phone visitor after 8am (while Bud is on...)

Sunday morning, the 1980's crew will be represented by Cary Pahigian who was squired away from WCCM to be the new whiz-kid for WGAN as program director (age 22), also Bruce Stevens, Nick Seneca and many more
