Irving Clark Jr. has taken a summer sabbatical. In his stead, Howard hall, familiar as the morning host of Telescope on King 5, will substitute on the radio talk show Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday on KING AM. The Wednesday evening show will be hosted by Guy Shehane. Shehane is a radio amateur, although he has appeared on Clark’s program as characters such as Doctor Fontanelle, Major Aquarius Aquabane, and several other ficticious personalities. Shehane started as a caller to the show, but now he is a host. Shehane said, “The Fontanelle family has a motto that I agree with. If something is worth doing, it is worth doing for money.”
