Todd E. Lyons, Esq.

Todd E. Lyons esq.

My name is Todd E. Lyons.

On the radio, you know know me as “Todd E. Lyons, Esquire.”

I have shared the airwaves in the mornings (6-10) with you for the last 14+ years.
It feels much longer than that.

Now, more about my favorite topic…  me.

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 area, attending 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!

In summary, it is my belief that I will probably take my last breath whilst on the air at 94.5 KATS.

Todd’s Take: Cornell’s Passing Reminds Me Of Other Concerts I Never Got To See

Like every other rocker, I was floored this morning at the news of Chris Cornell's passing. I immediately was thankful that Yakima had the chance to see him in concert at the Capitol Theatre last July 18. My mind then skipped to those fans who were holding on to tickets for the current Soundgarden tour, which still had four stops remaining. How disappointed those fans -- especially those who have never seen Cornell or the band in person -- must be today.
