Mike Gastineau spent 21 years at Sports Radio KJR, hosting more than 5,000 shows.

Last December, he decided to leave the station to explore other creative opportunities, including writing a book.

His non-fiction work entitled “Sounders FC: Authentic Masterpiece” went on sale in mid-October.

The “Gas Man” answered questions about his new book, the Seattle sports scene and much more in a live chat on Wednesday afternoon on seattletimes.com.
