Nine months ago I posted details of the 1974 Bike Expedition To Spokane’s Expo ’74. I just found some of the Seattle Times coverage of the June 1974 trip. The state sponsored event was on the front page of the Times for almost a week.

You might remember I never made it to the Expo ’74 fair grounds. Five miles out of town, on that hill down into Spokane, my bike’s front wheel hit a groove and I went flying . . . breaking my right collar bone. And it didn’t even warrant a headline or a lead paragraph in Lacitis’ coverage!!

What is going on here? I have been digging through My Collection of photos, news clippings and other documents from my 35 years in radio. The daily postings began on May 19, 2011. The Collection can be sorted:

By radio station: KPUG • KJRB • KJR • KZOK • KQFM • KOMO • KJR-FM

By year: 1961 • 1963 • 1967 • 1968 • 1969 • 1970 • 1971 • 1972
1973 • 1974 • 1975 • 1976 • 1977 • 1978 • 1979 • 1980 • 1981 • 1994
