A heaping plate of comedy is on the menu each week at Alternative Talk 1150 thanks to The Spud Goodman Radio Show, which airs Sundays at 12 a.m. and at 4 p.m. The one-hour program has been on KKNW 1150AM for over five years, which is a huge feat in radio.

Prior to KKNW, the show was featured on cable TV in Seattle/Tacoma market for many years and later KTZZ for four seasons. The show was then picked up for syndication with FOX NET for over two years.

“KKNW was an opportunity to bring a TV model to radio,” said Spud, adding “We market our program as TV on radio.”

The cast of the show describes themselves in an aptly tongue-in-cheek fashion:

Host, Spud Goodman, “a man who has seen better days with a future that is bleak at best.”

Co-host, Gerald Holcolmb, “a man who desperately clings to the hope he will someday ascend to the host position.”

Designated Laugher Aunt Dorothy, Spud’s aunt who “fills the position necessary for all drive time programs. . .she is always available to provide forced laughter to fill the dead air.”

Spud says the show has always been different from other programming options in the market. Adding that they originally set out to produce a hybrid program that straddled reality and an off-beat, self-created universe. The world, he explains, includes well-known celebrities along with those who don’t quite fit in with mainstream entertainment.

It’s made for an odd mixture for sure.

The show’s team shares duties beyond the studio, pulling together to promote the show on their website, Facebook page, YouTube channel, Twitter account and Wikipedia page.

Spud admits they “are terrible at promotion,” but says that does not stop them from at least trying to sow the seeds necessary for world comedy domination.

“In the past, we have attempted to place our show outside of the NW market, but currently we have run out of the energy required to maintain this effort. We are carried on a few public radio stations and have been picked up by various online stations around the US, one in the UK and one in South Africa.”

Ask their fans and you will likely hear the same; once they listened to the program, they became hooked. And why not. . .doesn’t this world need more great comedy?
