KAOH Halloween Special: Dave Campell, Kell’s Ghost

EIn which we learn that Portland celebrity ghosts can haunt where ever they fucking well choose. A big thank you to Katie Montana Jordan, Barney Blaylock (and here’s a link to his book on Oregon Prizefighters), Johnny Ash at Kells and Rose and Lester. This isMichelle DeVona’s Haunted Portland Restaurants post. Here’s a photo of Dave Campbell the fighter in about 1885 (thanks to OHS!). This is the #Portland Firefighters Park on West 18th and Burnside. It honors the 36 PFB members that died keeping this city safe. The bust features Chief Dave Campbell, who died in the Union Oil Depot fire on the east side of the river in 1911. I imagine this park was quite nice at some point, but now it is full of trash and wet, discarded blankets- orange syringe caps littered about. Campbell and his interesting life (and afterlife too??) are the subjects of this year's KAOH #halloween special #podcast- which takes place @kellsportland. It drops on Wednesday, and we hope you'll check it out! A post ...
