Big "J" The D.J.1st Aired Week of 7/9/88

Jamie, competing with Reggie for school radio D.J., uses Vicki's voice mimicry to fake an interview with football star Lyle Alzado -- who happens to be in town listening in.

It was fun having Lyle on the set, his bag of quips and jokes even bigger than he was, and his presence polishes an otherwise silly-bound episode introducing Brandon's golddigging, braggardly, name-dropping move-in sister, Ida Mae, who must be funny to somebody in the wake of McClurg's defection to The Hogan Family (funny how Harriet doesn't mention Mommy anymore). Notable: Another chess bout between Vicki and Ted — and he cheats the worst way. Brissette cuts up with impersonations of Cyndi Lauper and Michael Jackson.
