His real name isn't Rantz- that was his nom de goon as a right-wing talk host and radio producer.
He's really Jason Antebi and the new Asst. Programming Director at KTTH and KIROFM.
As is not untypical of his kind (radio talk hosts, real or aspiring) what Jason lacks in social skills or taste, he makes up for in narcissisism and the expectation the rest of the world actually gives a shit about where he throws his dirty socks.
You see his "eco-friendly toilet" and as it gapes invitingly (doesn't seem to be any females around... alas). Jason fills us in on his ruddy bouts of emesis, and hints darkly at other usages de toilette "like poo and pee."
He shows us his shower, it's curtain, and the eco-friendly, wooden "thing" he steps on when he steps out of the shower. (We're free to fantacize about Jason stepping nakedly out of that shower and onto that "thing." )
There's the art on the walls and its origins; a picture of his dog (where is it? is it dead? Jason never bothers to share that vital); descriptions of common items like a leather Ikea couch and a wall thermostat (eco-friendly setting: 69∘F) made special by Jason's daily touch.
A tour of his fridge without much in it, though we noted he had the useless yet ubiquitous box of Arm & Hammer baking soda recommended by everyone's grandma to soak up the odors that might want to accumulate there. (Kitchen scientist Harold McGee agrees with chefs: it's an urban myth, and a very successful baking soda marketing ploy).
There's much more we won't bother you with: Jason takes a lot of footage video-touring a one-room apartment. Like talk radio: so many words/so little else.
We're hearing that Jason is working on changes to KTTH which is especially limp at the moment. They (he) have been giving Dave Boze (KTTH m-f, 3-4p) a chance to fill-in on the John Curley Show (KIROFM m-f, 7-10p) to see if Dave can talk outside his usual narrow range of conservative politics. Turns out he can't, much. But for actions flick with such as Chuck Norris, he disaproves and is ignorant of most other pop culture.
We think the Celebrity Toilet Tours would spruce the mynorthwest.com site, and perk up interest for KIROFM. How many clicks would you give to a walk-through of Dori's magnificent executive john? Wonder if he's a toilet paper over or under-the roll guy. Do you suppose a guy like Dori changes his own t-paper? Probably not.
These and many other are questions we might have answered in the future of a Jason Antebi at Eastlake. Welcome, Jason.
