James H. Allen (May 15, 1928 – July 28 2015)
Allen hosted shows on KOIN, KPTV, and KATU as Rusty Nails in
Portland, Oregon from 1957 to 1972. In 1998 he wrote an
autobiographical book called "Send in the clowns." His show
on KPTV was the second-longest running children’s program
in Portland, second only to Ramblin’ Rod Anders.
A memorial service will be held at Beaverton Foursquare Church,
13565 S.W. Walker Road in Beaverton on Aug. 13 at 1 p.m. In
lieu of flowers, his family asks that donations be made to the
Oregon Diabetes Assn. or Legacy Hospice Portland.
