Todd Lyons

My name is Todd E. Lyons. On the radio you probably know me as “Todd E. Lyons, Esquire.” Every morning, hundreds of women wake up with me. I have shared the airwaves in the mornings (6A-9A) with you since 1998 and look forward to it every day. I was born in Seattle, Washington, the son of a sharecropper. My family and I moved to the “Fruit Bowl of the Nation” when I was a wee lad of only seven. I spent my formative years in the West Valley of Yakima area, indoctrinated in public school. I became keenly familiar with the “special” desk while attending Apple Valley Elementary. The teachers referred to it as the “isolation booth,” but I called it the “special desk.” Most of what I know today however can be credited to the “School of Hard Knocks.” I am extremely fortunate to work on the very radio station I grew up listening to. I loved listening to KATS so much when I was younger that I not only was a client, I became an employee! If you ever see me stumbling about this great valley of ours, please give me a shout. I would love to talk with you and find out what you think about 94.5 KATS!

Plenty of “Too Slim” Fans at the Inaugural ‘Downtown Summer Nights’

Thursday, 94.5 KATS, along with Legends Casino and the City of Yakima kicked off the first of many fun family nights on 4th Street at Downtown Summer Nights.

Yakima Police estimated the crowd to be between 800 and 900 strong, despite that the rain had come earlier in the day.

Part of the reason so many braved the potential for inclimate weather was to see one of the Northwest's all-time great working bands, "Too Slim and the Taildraggers."
