Hearing Voices? Yes, It's Phil Hendrie, Saturdays on KFI
By GARY LYCAN
THE ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER
If you hear strange voices when you tune in KFI/640 AM Saturday evenings, don't touch that dial or pre-set. You have discovered Phil Hendrie and his new "live and local" show 7-10 p.m.
"Saturday night there are a lot of people driving around town. They'll have some real radio to listen to. It'll be local, live, funny and we'll be mobile with our videocast of the show too," e-mailed Hendrie.
Phil Hendrie, heard weeknights on KTLK/1150 AM, is also doing a "live and local" show 7-10 p.m. Saturdays on KFI/640 AM.
"It is an honor and a thrill to have Phil Hendrie back on KFI. Phil is a one of a kind talent and is a perfect addition to KFI's more stimulating weekends," e-mailed KFI program director Robin Bertolucci.
Now, don't sweat it if you listen to Hendrie between 10 p.m. and 3 a.m. weeknights on KTLK/1150 AM. He's still there. Both KFI and KTLK are Clear Channel stations programmed by Bertolucci. The difference is the weeknight show is aired on more than 100 stations across the U.S. The KFI show is local.
Hendrie was on KFI from 1996 to 2005. He has an incredible range of voices or "callers," including "Bud Dickman," "Craig Dooley," "Father Dwayne Poppick," "General Gayland Shaw," and, well, the list goes on and on, but the fun is not knowing who will "call" in next.
Hendrie left radio briefly in 2006 to start an acting career. He also voiced characters on the animated shows "King of the Hill" and "Futurama." He returned to national radio in 2007.
If you are a Hendrie fan, you know what you get. If you are a new Hendrie listener, check out his site: www.philhendrieshow.com.
You will also find out on his site about pre-show videocasts at 9 p.m. weeknights.
FROST STAYS AT KFI
KFI is also making other weekend changes: Frost Stilwell is on 4-7 p.m. Sundays and Wayne Resnick is on 7-10 p.m. Sundays. Bill Carroll, the station said, "will take weekends off," but remains on the air noon-2 p.m. weekdays. More info: www.kfiam640.com.
Stilwell e-mailed, "Robin & I had lunch Monday. I remember the shrimp and scallops were delicious. So was the news of my new weekend slot on KFI. And I can't think of a better person to add to the schedule than Phil Hendrie, I have been a fan of his unique show for years.
"Just look at that entire weekend line-up on KFI now. How are you going to compete with that? You can't. We had raspberries with whipped cream & coffee for dessert, and talked for two hours. Nothing like a good meal with a side of good news, and talking radio over damn good coffee," he wrote.
