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 (6A-10A) 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, 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, 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.

M-F 6:00 am - 10:00 am

Comedian Craig Gass Asks Seahawk Russell Wilson a Crazy Question

Last week I had the pleasure(!) of having comedian Craig Gass in the studio with me all week leading up to the a.) Seahawks season opener last Thursday against Green Bay and b.) his weekend residence at the Laugh Lounge.

Many of his stories, both on-air and onstage, were Seahawks-centric. Sometimes, it's hard to believe the number of crazy stories he has to tell about his run-ins with famous athletes.

Well, here is a video Craig recently uploaded to YouTube showing that, indeed, he speaks the truth!

Week #1 of the N.F.L. season wraps-up tonight with a double-header when the New York Giants travel to Detroit and the San Diego Chargers head to Arizona for a pair of Monday Night Football games airing on ESPN.

While there were a few surprises (New England's loss to Miami, anyone?) maybe the most unbelievable feat occurred in the season-opening game in Seattle on Thursday night.

Craig Gass and Aaron Bennett Sing ‘Baby Got Back’ in First-Ever Christopher ‘Walken-Off’

Earlier this week on "The Big Show," I challenged Craig Gass and Aaron Bennett of Manic Thunder Comedy Improv Troupe to the first ever "Walken-Off."

They chose to tackle Sir Mix-A-Lot's "Baby Got Back" as if it were sung by legendary actor Christopher Walken.

What happened next was not of this world and must be heard to be believed.
