From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Career

In his early days at the Ticket, the Great Gordo hosted a late night weekend show, from midnight to 2 am which included "Jeremy" and his original hypnotic renditions of pop songs along with a myriad of intoxicated and odd bird callers. The show eventually morphed into his Saturday morning show "The Rant". The Rant tenure included a couple of well known Ticket personalities as co-hosts, "GenX" Davey Lane and Corby Davidson. Some of the highlights from "The Rant" included the rat that ate the nose off a baby, the untimely death of Bumpot, and the notorious coverage of Kennedy Jr crashing on Gay Head. He started with "The Hardline" where his on air Lambeau Field escapades landed him jail with Dr. Thornhill and in the forefront of P1 popularity. In addition to his notable radio career, Keith has also found success in other forms of media.

Arrest

During a trip to Green Bay, Keith was arrested for trespassing at Lambeau Field. While on air, Keith went into the empty stadium and walked on to the field. From the prodding of the on-air hosts, Keith screamed "Jerry Kramer was offsides" and "Bart Starr was not that great". Lambeau security attempted to restrain him and Keith immediately tried to leave the area, only to be arrested by the Green Bay Police Department outside of the stadium.

The Nestor/Keith controversy

A long-running feud has existed between members of The Ticket and Nestor Aparicio (also known as "Nasty Nestor"), an American sports writer and radio personality. On January 30, 2009, during Super Bowl week in Tampa, Florida, while roaming the Radio Row with a wireless microphone, Keith approached Aparicio in an alleged attempt to bury the hatchet.[5] Aparicio attempted to assault Keith before the scuffle was broken up by Super Bowl security. The incident was broadcast live during The Ticket's morning show. [6]
