He struck out with a pilot for NBC earlier this year but radio comic Phil Hendrie hasn't given up trying to make the leap to television -- even if it's in cartoon form. Hendrie will team with Steve Levitan to produce a pilot for a prime-time animated series for Fox about a character much like Hendrie -- a radio host with a wife and three stepchildren, Daily Variety reports. Hendrie would supply most of the voices for the show -- as he does now for his weeknight faux talk program on KFI-AM (640).

* The master of a thousand voices hosts a unique and entertaining talk-radio show on KFI-AM (640) from 7 to 10 on weeknights. Food Wonderful Food: It takes me about 45 minutes to get home to Westlake Village after I sign off at 10 p.m., but my wife, Maria, always stays up to prepare something special. We had a martini picnic one night. Recently I came home and my wife had prepared a Greek meal. I know you think I'm making this up, but it's true.

When he hears "I usually don't call in to radio shows, but I can't believe what this guy is saying," Phil Hendrie knows he's hooked another one. The caller is incredulous about the moronic or deviant suggestions of the guest on Hendrie's program, whether it's a Catholic priest rationalizing molestation or a columnist saying the elderly should forgo air-conditioning during power shortages so celebrities can keep cool. Often, Hendrie joins the outraged listener in berating the guest.

The woman calling Phil Hendrie's evening radio program on KFI-AM (640) is furious. Sputtering on the verge of apoplexy, she fumes about Hendrie's guest for this hour, an elderly woman on the phone from Florida calling for a boycott of the Christian group known as the Promise Keepers.

Hurray to KSLX deejay Phil Hendrie--for the countless times my son and his friends have stood in the pre-dawn dark outside a Music Plus to be first in line for concert tickets--only to find that the good seats were already gone (Pop Eye: "Jocks Crusade Against Ticket Brokers," March 6). There's no way for kids (most of whom have to save up for every record and ticket they buy) to get an even break with the current pre-sale ticket system. Let's outlaw the pre-sale deals--or at least restrict them!

If the TV networks are losing viewers in prime time, perhaps it's due to the nightly genius of Phil Hendrie ("All Mock, All the Time," by Steve Hochman, Oct. 26). His imagination and concentration are amazing, and the nature of his program practically demands that listeners tune in for the entire show. KFI should take pride in the fact that they've hired someone who has re-energized the radio medium. DAWNA KAUFMANN Los Angeles When Hendrie's program comes on, I can't turn him off fast enough!

Rock deejays tend to show more interest in Run DMC than in Ronald Reagan, so the upcoming Moscow summit is the last thing that commuters might have expected to hear about on morning drivetime radio this week. But if they happened to punch up KLSX-FM's (97.1) Phil Hendrie, they would have heard "Just Standing Here Watching the White House Grass Grow," a jaded rap exchange between Mikhail Gorbachev and an addled Reagan, droned to the tune of Bob Dylan's "Watching the River Flow."

When Bob Odenkirk learned that Fox was going to produce a pilot of his sitcom idea -- "The Big Wide World of Carl Laemke," about a suburban father who refuses to grow up -- he was briefly elated. Then the dread set in. "I thought, 'Years of stories? I don't know, man,' " said Odenkirk, whose past TV experience includes the satiric "Mr. Show" on HBO. "And somebody from the network said, 'Don't worry, most shows don't make it.'

Popular KLSX-FM (97.1) morning man Phil Hendrie has been shifted to unspecified weekend work on the classic-rock station and is being replaced by out-of-towners Peter Tilden (from Philadelphia) and Roz (from Chicago). KLSX program director Tom Yates said Tuesday the shift was in response to the latest Arbitron audience rating reports, which suggest that the classic rock format needed some boosting in the mornings.
