Jeff's back on the air

Two weeks after his firing from The Zone (KZZO 100.5 FM), Jeff Jensen returned to the radio Monday as the afternoon DJ on The Flash (KXCL 92.1 FM).

And get this: He's competing directly against his longtime radio partner, Shawn Cash, who now holds down the 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. slot on The Zone.

As soon as Jeff was shown the door after 13 years of partnering with Shawn as morning drive-time jocks at KWOD and The Zone, Bob Ryder, The Flash station manager, got on the phone and offered him a job.

"It would be criminal not to have both these guys on the air," Ryder says. "They're kind of like the Paul and Phil of our generation. He was a little shell-shocked when I called, but he was also eager to get back."

If you miss Shawn and Jeff on the air, here's an idea: You can switch back and forth between stations each afternoon and it'll amost be like having them back together.
