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

In December 2012, 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 last October.

In April, he launched “Seattle Soccer Talk”, a dedicated soccer show which airs weekly on Tuesday nights from 7-8 p.m. on KJR.

Unlimited Digital Access. $1 for 4 weeks.

The “Gasman” answered questions about his new radio show, his Sounders book, the Seattle sports scene and more in a live chat on July 9.
