RECALLING A LOCAL RADIO LEGEND

BARNEY KEEP RETIREMENT SHOW IN THE OREGONIAN 

Barney Keep,“Sweet,Lovable Ol’ Barn” as he was known by many,is

seen here in this Oregon Journal pic ringing the “goody-gong” one

last time at his retirement party in February of 1979. It was held at the

Civic Theater  with a capacity audience. That was Barney’s last  show

on KEX after 35 years and Portland radio has never been the same!
