Steve Pringle Family Cancer Fund

Please support a Portland treasure, Steve Pringle and his family, who was recently diagnosed with Solitary Fibrous Sarcoma, stage 4; a rare and incurable cancer. 

Steve has more than 25 years’ experience on the airwaves of Portland radio, including time with KKJZ and mornings and middays on KINK.FM. His passion for blues music led to his hosting KMHD/OPB’s Friday Freeway Blues and taking over for his mentor Bob “The Big BA” Ancheta on KINK.FM’s Sunday Night Blues after Ancheta’s retirement in 2011. In 2017, Pringle took his blues show to KGON where it remained on air for two years. 

A longtime, steadfast supporter of the local blues scene, Pringle’s blues programs highlighted numerous Portland-area blues bands. In 2018, Steve was honored with a Muddy Award from the Cascade Blues Association for his work on behalf of the local blues community.  That work has often included volunteering as M.C. at benefits for sick musicians. 

Steve is currently unable to work and undergoing chemo treatments to treat his own aggressive cancer, leaving his wife, Caryn to support him and their two children who reside with them.  Please help out Steve and his family if you can.

An All Star benefit "Bluesmania" is planned for Steve Sunday, November 24th at the Roseland Theater in Portland, Oregon.  We hope you can show your support by attending this very special event.


Thank you, 
Tracy Pain
