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 (6 to 9) with you since 1998, and look forward to it every day. I was born in Seattle, 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 7. I spent my formative years in the West Valley of Yakima, 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!

Todd’s Take: Can a Dream Change Your Life? [POLL]

A few days ago, I had a terrible, horrific dream. In it, my 9-year-old son was badly injured. I thought he was dead at first. Without going into graphic detail of what was a very vivid, realistic image in my mind, I awoke just as my boy began to open his eyes.

It stuck with me all weekend.  It's still with me right now.  It scared the hell out of me.

The World Lost Jimi Hendrix 44 Years Ago Today

My mother was about six months pregnant.  I was inside her womb. Clearly, I had no clue about the passing of James Marshall Hendrix on Sept.18, 1970.

I'm not sure if my mom is even all that familiar with him to this day, but 44 years later I sure as hell am and I'm sorry that he isn't still around.
