How'd you like to be the one taking over the morning radio slot not only on one of the top-rated stations in the second-biggest market but also in a chair previously occupied by one of the true innovators of morning radio? Charlie Van Dyke, just named to the post at KRTH-FM (101.1) vacated by the retirement last year of Robert W. Morgan due to the lung cancer that would claim his life in May, says he isn't feeling any pressure.

Most coaches agree that it's not how you start a game that's important, but how you finish. That theory proved to be true Friday night as Notre Dame High overcame a first half filled with penalties and mistakes to record a 45-14 victory over Lompoc in a Division III quarterfinal at Notre Dame. Notre Dame (11-1) recovered a Lompoc fumble on the opening kickoff and drove 41 yards in five plays to go up, 7-0, on a Justin Fargas five-yard touchdown run.

They were more than just the kings of the radio dial. They were more than just No. 1. They were Boss. More accurately, they were the Boss Jocks, spinning those Boss Hits for an adoring, young and huge Boss Radio audience in Boss Angeles. Even some of their names had more than a hint of Bossness to them--the Real Don Steele, Humble Harve, Dave Diamond, Sam Riddle, Walt Baby Love, Charlie Tuna. Back then, the Beatles were fighting for chart space with the Mamas & the Papas and Dylan.

'I'm listening to things like 'Jungle Love' on KIIS and Dees has got the nerve to criticize? How can you compare that to a song like 'You're the Reason God Made Oklahoma'?" KLAC-AM (540) morning deejay Scott Carpenter sputtered into momentary tongue paralysis over the issue of country music as mental and musical cirrhosis.

Ready for another dose of Mark McGwire? Well, don't get too excited. Fox is televising the St. Louis Cardinals' game Saturday at Houston, with the Astros' Randy Johnson pitching against McGwire, to 69% of the country, but not Los Angeles. We get the Angels at Baltimore at 10 a.m. instead. You can't really fault Fox this time. Let's not forget, the Angels are in a division race. Everyone is talking about the resurgence of baseball, but "Monday Night Football" on ABC still got a better national rating than McGwire's record-breaking performance Tuesday night on Fox, 14.8 to 12.9.
