On Tuesday, October 11th around 50 folks enjoyed socializing, lunch, and listening to an engaging talk by Pat McMahon at Karsten Golf Course.

Pat has been in the valley for some 60 years. Not only is he well known for his over 100 characters in ‘The Wallace and Ladmo show’, but for his commentaries on the Arizona Morning News and his talk shows on both radio and TV. He shared some interesting vignettes about his early life, as well as some fascinating stories about his record and movie experiences, as well as some of the interesting people he has interviewed.

Besides being well known outside of radio, he has had a multi-faceted career as an actor, producer, recording artist, writer, and broadcaster. He has earned 7 Emmy’s, major National and International radio awards as well as numerous civic, educational, religious, and humanitarian awards.

He was also a recipient of an Honorary Doctorate from Ottawa University and the Arizona Broadcasters Lifetime Achievement Award.

It was the Arizona State University Retirees Association’s pleasure to present him as our featured speaker.
