Costumed anti-hero, noted horse's ass, and craven blabbermouth Tim Eyman will fill-in next week starting Monday for the vacationing Dave Boze on KTTH morning show, Sytman & Boze (m-f, 5-9a).
According to Program Director Tom Clendening (he's returning our calls!), the initiative-whoring opportunist Eyman will co-host the first week with Dan Sytman; the second week, he says will be probably an assortment of co-hosts, as yet to be announced.
Tim Eyman? robust exchange of ideas? a conversation? asking questions and listening to the answers? Shutting up when told? Whoa! Conceptualizing these in terms of the Mukilteo demagogue are beyond our meager powers of imagination.
What do you think? We think Mr. Clendening has been smoking Dutch cleanser.
Talking, you'd think, would be something Eyman would do well; after all, he never stops. As for radio, where the mission is to sell something for somebody else? We're skeptical.
Expect Eyman to stay on his talking points and use the show to pimp his regressive yet profitable initiatives. It'll be fun to hear if Sytman can rein him in and make the 3 hours about something other than Tim Eyman.
Will he be Tim Eyman the guest? Or Tim Eyman the host. Will anyone call in and challenge him? We hope so. It could be great radio, though our doubts are grave.
We, for one, will be listening.
