In all the years I've been posting broadcaster obits, this one has confounded me. Is this Ken Lomax, broadcaster? There is no mention of radio in the obit. It says he was born in 1949 but Ken was already on the air at the time. Was this a typo for 1929 which would fit perfectly?
Ken Lomax began his Radio career in 1947 at KUGN Eugene while attending the Univ. of Oregon. In 1950 he moved to KORE Eugene and in 1952 Ken began at KERG Eugene. For a short time he was at KRNR Roseburg.
On October 12, 1955 it was announced Ken was voted Oregon's top deejay outside of Portland.
On October 29 1956 Ken began at KPOJ taking over the "Magic In Music" program 12:30 to 3:00pm. On September 9, 1959 it was announced Ken Lomax had been appointed KISN Account Exec. On October 1, 1968 Ken was a newscaster at the launching of "Beautiful Music" KYXI. By 1972 Ken was a deejay at KYXI, on the air 9 to Noon.
On December 28, 1973 it was announced Ken had joined "The Swing Four" playing nightly at "Jester's Club.' Lomax played electric bass and sang. The band played "Swing Jazz."
