A Tube of Grease If you thought the “Dr. Chip Bandwidth” character appearing on a matchmaker.com infomercial early Sunday morning on Channel 9 sounded familiar, you were right: Sure enough, Bandwidth’s high-pitched squeal belongs to former WARW-FM shock jock Doug “Greaseman” Tracht. Fired in March for a racist remark about singer Lauryn Hill, Tracht now hits the nocturnal airwaves in a blue lab coat and black cowboy boots as Bandwidth, “one of America’s funniest and informed Internet gurus.” The dating-service site to which he’s luring viewers, meanwhile, features categories such as “Latter Day Saints/ Mormons,” “Ebony,” and “Yenta.” (“Whether on the hunt for a hot Mensch or truly searching for your Beshert, Yenta is the matchmaker site for you,” the site reads.) Let’s hope the Greaseman will tread lightly when he cracks wise about dating your own kind.
