FOR the last decade, citizens of Chicago have come to know Mancow Muller as the scrappy morning drive host of "Mancow's Morning Madhouse," a loud mix of libido and religion, libertarian politics and celebrity interviews, call-ins and rants. To his fans, it all makes sense somehow that he advocates free speech but has cleaned up his act, can put "Jesus" and "dirty joke" in the same sentence, and bitterly denounces both the FCC and Howard Stern.

It bills itself as Sports Radio, but XTRA-AM (570) is moving away from an all-sports format in favor of programming aimed more generally at young men. The station, home to Jim Rome and Lakers basketball, added Phil Hendrie's nighttime comedy program a few months back and now plans to introduce a Howard Stern-like morning show, announcing Wednesday that the syndicated "Mancow's Morning Madhouse" will air weekdays 4:30 to 9 a.m. beginning May 23.

Tony Bruno will be doing what he calls a "victory tour" next week. Proclaiming a victory at this point is premature, but what the heck, this is sports talk radio, where just about anything goes when it comes to self-promotion. KMPC (1540), where Bruno began doing the morning drive-time show April 4, still hasn't shown up in a ratings book. But the KMPC spin is that Bruno and sidekick Mark Willard, beginning Monday, will have the only local morning sports talk show in Los Angeles.

XTRA, the sports station that used to be on two frequencies, 690 and 1150, moved to KLAC's 570 frequency Feb. 3 amid much fanfare. Although as far as the FCC is concerned the call letters remain KLAC, the station bills itself XTRA Sports AM 570. The implication is that the station is giving sports fans something extra. But, it appears XTRA Sports AM 570 may be giving sports fans less, at least less sports programming.

The Santa Barbara district attorney's office says it won't prosecute the man who let the air out of the tire of a van--with a wheelchair lift on the side--that was parked in a judge's spot. The air-letting culprit: the judge. According to a Sheriff's Department report, Superior Court Judge James Slater was returning from lunch in his Porsche when he saw that his spot was taken.

Making up reports about the death of Britney Spears, castrating a pig or having a lewd conversation with a porn star--shock jocks are continually pushing the limits to show that nothing is sacred. But after a stunt in which a couple were charged with having sex during Mass in St. Patrick's Cathedral, a pair of New York DJs are finding out that their bosses and regulators think otherwise.
