Legendary Seattle Top 40 DJ, Program Director, station owner, hydroplane enthusiast, alcoholism treatment pitchman, and (most importantly) friend of BlatherWatch Pat O'Day is heading in for brain surgery Thursday. From MyNorthwest.com:
O'Day's family feared the worst on Monday when he lost memory and use of his fingers. He took a ferry from his San Juan island home to the emergency room in Anacortes.
Doctors discovered a benign tumor was pressing the right frontal lobe of his brain against the skull.
Medication has already improved 77-year-old O'Day's condition, and surgeons believe the tumor is easily removable.
O'Day, 77, for years a mainstay of Old Seattle Radio Saturday, certainly has the best wishes of all of us in the Seattle radio community, listeners and broadcasters alike, as he faces this latest challenge. Add your good thoughts in the comments!
