Lewis Sawyer 1930 ~ 2018

Our colleague Lewis O. Sawyer Jr. has died at the age of 87. His health had been deteriorating of late and he died at a doctor’s visit. Lewis was a dedicated KPFA apprentice and music programmer. He hosted Early Morning Music with The Experience Collective previously titled, The Lewis Sawyer Experience. Lewis had a magnificent voice and radio presence. He was passionate about social and criminal justice. He served for many years as a staff representative on the KPFA Local Station Board. Early in his life, he was a boxer and always kept in great physical condition. Lewis was a wonderful, kind and warm-hearted man. Our condolences to his family, Jaz Sawyer and Esther Sawyer.
