Lohman & Barkley

Growing up in LA Country in a little town of Glendora, our family often listened to the Lohman & Barkley show on KFI. In recent years, we have wondered what they were doing and if they would ever get together.

I remember they hosted a morning show Monday through Friday. Most of the time they played music, which no one liked, it was when they spoke. They were so creative and had so many characters such as Ted J. Baloney.

Unfortunately, they are both deceased. They are missed.

Roger Barkley died at age 61 of pancreatic cancer on December 21, 1997 at City of Hope National Medical Center in Duarte, California

Al Lohman died October 14, 2002 at age 69 of complications from bladder cancer. Bandleader Ray Conniff died at about the same time, and while Conniff's obituary in the Los Angeles Times rated an entire column, Lohman's took up nearly three pages.

You can do a search on Google for "lohman and barkeley" and there are a number of links with great information about them.
