Cadigan, a well-known Northland disk jockey, passed away earlier this week. He was one of the first rock 'n' roll D.J.s in the area and recently co-hosted the KDAL morning show.

Kenny Kalligher was one of his co-workers and recalls one of his first memories of Cadigan.

"The first time I ever saw Pat was when he was on the T.V., and my mom would call all of us kids the television because Grandma was dancing in the crowd. 'Come out and see grandma!' But there was Pat Cadigan, front and center. Handsome-looking guy, playing the bass leading the band, emceeing, singing the songs. I thought, 'This guy's cool,'" Kalligher said. "He was a legend. He's old school. We're going to miss him."

Cadigan was 81 years old.
