A baby boy was born on Ramstein Air Base in 1988, where his parents had been stationed to help aid the infamous Polish Strikes in the neighboring People’s Republic of Poland. The parents instantly noticed their baby was an over-achiever, mastering the art of crawling only 3 hours after birth, and extremely curious. As fate would have it, the unique combination of such attributes and a shortage of head scarfs for Polish workers, led the baby to an open box of babushkas in the hospital, to which he entered, fell asleep, and was transported to an outgoing supply plane headed for Warsaw. Unfortunately, the pilot missed his drop zone, dropping the child inside a gypsies’ bazaar on the outskirts of Warsaw. The gypsies took him in as their own, as they take most things, and named him Tyler. Tyler instantly took a liking to an old transistor radio he found and listened to nothing but Polish Sports talk. He knew it was his true calling in life and at the age of 21, hitched hiked his way to the coast of Portugal, snuck onto a boat headed for Austin, Texas. Everyone he met on his travels had told him it was the best-kept secret in the world, which he found odd, seeing as everyone knew about it. Upon his arrival, he found a job at Doc’s Motorworks on South Congress. There he met a man named Erin Hogan, who Tyler discovered worked for a sports radio station. Using his gypsy skills of manipulation, Tyler finagled a job at 104.9 the HORN, where Tyler quickly rose to the role of producer and show host. You can find him behind the glass from 3-7pm where he produces “The Big Show” and on-air Saturday mornings as the co-host of “Schwartz and Coe”. Tyler was never reunited with his parents.
