Puppet Parody Perplexes KXL/Portland's Clyde Lewis

ALPHA BROADCASTING Talk KXL/PORTLAND "GROUND ZERO" host CLYDE LEWIS has inspired someone to create a YOUTUBE parody channel with a puppet standing in for the veteran host.
The first video popped up on the "CLYDE LEWIZ" channel on MONDAY (1/30), titled "Life on other planets? One caller thinks so." Another video, also hosted by the LEWIS puppet, "I see strange lights -- CLYDE LEWIZ Mound Zero," appeared three days later. Neither LEWIS nor the station, both of whom say they enjoy the videos, has any idea who's doing the parodies, and they are inviting anyone who knows to send along the information to email@example.com or (503) 517-6000.
LEWIS said of the videos, "I'm flattered by them. Several people have asked if I'm upset by the parodies. I actually think they're very funny and very well done. I would love to know the creator and visionary behind them."
