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.

Would You Take a Shuttle Bus to Seahawks Games? [POLL]

We have had many inquiries about the availability of any 'Seahawks Super Fan' bus trips for the upcoming season. Sadly, none are scheduled for this season as there are no group tickets available at CenturyLink Field as in years past.

With that said, we would like to know if you, your friends and family or other Seahawks fans who already have game tickets would be interested in putting together a 'Rooter Bus' for the eight regular-season home games.

Joe Montana Thinks Seahawks Are ‘Capable’ of Becoming Next NFL Dynasty

While us fans in the Pacific Northwest are certainly biased about the prospects of the Seattle Seahawks becoming a dynasty for years to come, that thought becomes more legitimate when confirmed by a Hall of Fame quarterback who played for one of the league's greatest dynasties, former San Francisco 49er Joe Montana.

All right, KATS Krazies ... need a little help here!

Two new songs from one established, very polarizing band, another from an upstart.
In this corner, Nickelback and their new tune "Edge of a Revolution," and in this corner, ISLANDER with their cut, "Coconut Dracula."  Yes, I said "Coconut Dracula."

Todd E. Lyons, Esquire Blog: ‘Throwback Thursday’

I love the concept of “Throwback Thursday” and seeing all of the vintage pics on social media sites.
Personally, I think it says a lot about a person who is willing to share, in many cases, photos of themselves that they might otherwise consider embarrassing. It’s especially interesting when it’s of a person that one hasn’t necessarily known their entire life.
