Show Information Edit
The first hour of the show is known as the "Wonderful One O'Clock Hour," the second hour the "Terrible Two O'Clock Hour," and the third hour the "Throbbing Three O'Clock Hour." Whether you are "The President" Slothman in all of his gory glory or S Dot who keeps stirring the pot of controversy; not to mention "Jack" who keeps us updated with the variable "Deaths of the Week," this is the place you want to be for your daily dose of Sassy. Read up on your favorite late night radio host; take a look at the image gallery; hell, maybe link yourself up and listen in live via WCSB's Webcast.</i>
The show was voted as Cleveland Scene's Best Of in 2005.
As the "sick, sick mind behind 669," Craig Callander helms the most scatological show on the Cleveland airwaves. Otherwise known as Dr. Lance Underpants and Sweet Ass Sassafrass, Callander comes with a nonstop barrage of oddball in-studio guests (everyone from the Insane Clown Posse to Cleveland furniture czar Marc Brown) and humor as black and sticky as an oil spill. In between blasting everything from vintage punk to Tiny Tim, Callander fields calls from naked Puerto Rican chicks, cops, and dudes pretending to be robots named Zeldar. During a recent show (his program airs Saturday mornings from 1 to 4 a.m.), Callander attempted to encapsulate the mirth and misanthropy that is 669. "Let's sum it up with a few adjectives," he began. "Obviously, it's musky. It's helpful, inflammatory, swollen, subliminal, special - like short-bus special. It's Dee Sniderish and Judas Priestly. Understandable? Not so much."
The show and Callander as the leader of the program have been nominated as the best radio show in Cleveland on more than one occasion and constantly receives praise from some of the alternative publications in the city including Best College Radio Personality for 2005.
The show has also been a place for both local and major celebrities to stop by on a late Friday night. Most recently Crispin Glover of Back to the Future fame was on the show; along with people like Drew Carey, Insane Clown Posse, and Doug Stanhope.
Norton Furniture Commercials Edit
Sweetass (Craig Callander) has taken part in a slew of Norton Furniture commercials including "Caveman," "Look At Those Babies" and "Twas The Night Before Christmas." He has appeared in over ten commercials to date (Jan 2008) and continues to take part in the filming of addition quirkly spots for the late night furniture salesman. Most of the videos can be seen on the YouTube website with a simple search; including ones of the far past that have been uploaded by fans of the quirky commercials.
