KRBZ Brings In 'The Dick Dale Show' For Mornings
February 1, 2007 at 4:35 PM (PT)
ENTERCOM Alternative KRBZ (96.5 THE BUZZ)/KANSAS CITY will launch "THE DICK DALE SHOW" in mornings, beginning FEBRUARY 12. KRBZ has been doing a music-intensive morning show -- dubbed "MYLIST," airing top 10 songs lists from listeners -- since AFENTRA's BIG FAT MORNING BUZZ moved to sister Alternative KNDD (107.7 THE END)/SEATTLE to join "THE CHURCH OF LAZLO" in afternoons last NOVEMBER (NET NEWS 11/27).
DALE was previously doing afternoons at LOTUS Active Rock KOMP/LAS VEGAS. DALE will be reunited with his former co-host JESSICA CHASE, who has been multi-tasking in CHARLESTON, SC -- morning show host at LM COMMUNICATIONS Active Rock WYBB (98X), stand-up comedian, and columnist.
DALE, an 11-year radio veteran, was "discovered" by current afternoon host LAZLO (also KNDD PD/afternooner) while the two were living in FLORIDA.
While DALE might owe some of his career to LAZLO, CHASE owes at least one aspect of her career to DALE. After realizing she couldn’t make a living doing stand-up and writing comedy exclusively, CHASE became a traffic reporter for APEX BROADCASTING Alternative WAVF (96 WAVE)/CHARLESTON, SC, where DALE was working. The two quickly developed chemistry, and CHASE became DALE’s on-air sidekick.
DALE said, "I’m a malcontent, sardonic, and callous. Although I’m not sure what any of those words mean, hopefully they make me sound like I have some depth."
He added, "Fans of LAZLO’s show will probably enjoy mine. My show has been compared to a radio version of 'The Daily Show.'"
