~~Who in the hell is Bob Van Dyne? Nobody has ever heard of him; he doesn't google up; he's been a mystery, a horse with no name. We now know why he's been hard to locate. He's the former DJ NoName, the morning (and “Afternoon Experiment”) guy bumped from Entercom rocker, The End (KNDD, 107.7FM) to install Adam Corolla during the musical chairs when Howard Stern went missing last January. Now he's a new voice on KIRO doing fill-in on the weeknightly 9p-1a. He has a sound that's too FM for us; not unlike Ronda & Donna, (m-f, 4-7p) also FM refugees newly given AM talk time on KIRO. Noname Bob is libertarian-leaning and a little lite on the issues, but like Ron & Dumber, he seems to be buckling down each morning to the 4-color meat of USA Today. It's all very depressing, frankly- he's rumored to be favored to get that important slot; which we were hoping would go to a liberal. The good news: he's not Frank "Shudder" Shiers.
~~What does blog success look like? A way ours does is that if you google, "MSN ratings boy's and girls on toilets" you'll get to BlatherWatch. If you like boys and girls on toilets, you might enjoy this.
