He's been doing much of that schtik even before he began his talk radio 
career.  When he was doing AM drive on KC-101 in New Haven in the mid-late 
90s he was playing up the recovering alcoholic bit, and could get a bit 
weepy at times.  Sounded a bit out of place on a CHR.  Don't get to hear 
his syndicated show very often (I think WGIR carries it, or at least they 
did), but when I've heard him I've found him entertaining.
