Russ Martin, Back on the Air

Just got a e-mail from an elated Russ Martin fan: "He's back on the air." Sure enough. Says David Henry, general manager at KLLI-FM (Live 105.3), of the decision to put Martin back in the air, following his July 18 arrest, "Russ came on at 3:15 today. I mean, we just decided to put him back on, simple as that." As for what Martin can and can't talk about, Henry tells Unfair Park, "The only thing I can say about that is, we've got a case in the hands of local authorities, and we don't want to comment on the matter till it's resolved. That's all I can tell you." But will Martin say more? --Robert Wilonsky
