, C, Foster Kane
and Jim Arnold present real radio for real people.From the keen, comical, and credible presentation of "Thee News" by C. Foster Kane
, to the somewhat twisted banter between the three; The RadioMen
(along with their official Radio-Ladio) are unlike any broadcasting team America has ever heard.First together in Europe as children of circus performers, C.
and Jim came to America in the '50's.

, RadioMan, delivers a special kind of news every weekday.With thirty years of broadcast experience behind him, "Thee News
" with C. Foster Kane
is credible and sometimes wierd."Thee News
" is today's top stories told with a twist.Factual, flagrant, and free; "Thee News" with C. Foster Kane is unlike any news you've ever heard.
THE BEGINNING..............................C. Foster Kane
grew up in Los Angeles, California surfing, playing baseball, and chasing cars.He
attended Don Martin's School of Radio and Television in Hollywood, and got his
first radio gig at KINO
in Winslow, Arizona.From there he
attempted to work at (or get fired from) nearly every radio station known to broadcasting, including stations from Sarasota to Butte, San Diego to Casper, Houston to L.A., Kansas City to Seattle, and many places he
won't mention. THE MIDDLE..........................C's mouth has been moving in many major markets.In 1978, C. Foster Kane (AKA John Langan) worked mornings at KISW, Seattle's Best Rock, with Mike West.
It was here that C.
became friends with an overnight disc-jockey named Jim Arnold.
Totally devastated and not happy, C.
moved back to Seattle, and did mornings with John Posey at KZOK.
Tired of the soot, stench, traffic and lawsuits of the big city, C.
moved to Spokane in the mid-eightees.There, C. worked as Program director at KZZU, and met up again with the original "Breakfast Boy" Jim Arnold (now-aka RadioMan Jim).
From 1987 to 1991 C. Foster Kane
did a lot of things, however, most will not be mentioned here.He
did return to KISW
in Seattle, spent time doing Kansas City radio, and moved to Alaska where he
made what he
called "soup" for the homeless. From 1992 to January of 2000, C. was the Program Director and General Manager of KKZX-FM.He
has since left that position to pursue something more enjoyable.TODAY................Today, C.
works mornings at KKZX (Spokane, Washington) and afternoons at KNST (Tucson, Arizona) with his good friends Jim Arnold and Luna Moon.
...C. Foster Kane
lives a secluded life in North Idaho with his
wife, dog, and 2 cats; and is the father of an eighteen year old son.His
hobbies include snowboarding, pipe smoking, not eating meat, belt weaving, boating, hiking, staring at the night sky, stump collecting, glaring at the neighbors, cancer research, boiling old buttons and pouring them in the sink, writing, sewing scarves for the homeless, and cleaning out the barn - among other things.
...RadioMan Jim Arnold, one of the smoothest disc jockeys ever, can be heard weekday mornings on KKZX (Spokane, Washington) from 6 to 10am broadcasting with his partner, C. Foster Kane, and again from 3pm to 6pm on KNST (Tucson, Arizona).
