August 17, 2011 at 4:34 AM (PT)
TALK RADIO NETWORK and CLEAR CHANNEL Talk KFI-A/LOS ANGELES host PHIL HENDRIE was a guest on actor KEVIN POLLAK's Internet video talk show this week.
The wide-ranging interview on "KEVIN POLLAK'S CHAT SHOW" included discussions of HENDRIE's inspirations (LAUREL AND HARDY, LENNY BRUCE, JONATHAN WINTERS and JACKIE GLEASON, of whom HENDRIE said, "He was my Dad, a big man who would come through the door, ebullient and happy one night and the polar opposite the next .... Impotent anger makes me laugh my ass off!"), the inspiration for his characters ("Bobbie Dooley" was patterned, he said, after his mother), and his show's place in the radio business ("I'm in the tie-dye department of the tuxedo shop ... If RUSH and HOWARD are Corvettes, I'm an off-road vehicle").
POLLAK told HENDRIE, "Damn you for doing something no one else is doing, no one else ever or has done. Damn you for being original. You're going to have to pay a price forever for being one of a kind."
