Attention fans of Allan Prell, the former longtime WBAL radio personality: He didn't retire. He didn't join a cult. He didn't sell any of the screenplays he was always threatening to write. Instead, he's taking his act to Seattle. Starting Monday, the Allan Prell Show will air from 9 a.m. to noon every weekday on Newsradio 710 KIRO, the top-rated news-talk station in the Pacific Northwest. Prell, who was host of a popular morning talk show from 1982 to 1999 at WBAL Radio, signed a three-year contract with the station.

Allan Prell was back on the radio the other night and, as he might say, it was a glorious occasion. He laughed riotously at his own jokes. He made fun of callers foolish enough to share details of their personal lives. And he was oh so naughty. Baltimore remembers naughty Allan. His provocative and often hilarious morning talk show aired on WBAL Radio from 1982 to 1999. Since then, he's worked for stations in Denver and Seattle, before returning to his home in Northern Virginia. Tuesday night, he filled in on the nationally syndicated Jim Bohannon Show out of Washington.

It was a vintage tiff -- Feisty Radio Talk Show Host vs. Resolute School Superintendent.Allan Prell faced off against Stuart Berger in an hour of give-and-take yesterday about Baltimore County schools and what's happening in them.Mr. Prell pulled no punches and Mr. Berger ducked few of them.Listeners to WBAL's morning talk show heard Mr. Prell tell Dr. Berger he was "knee-deep and waist-high in political problems," that he was perceived as "arrogant and dictatorial" and that it "seems to me that Stuart Berger is in this rowboat and he can't understand that everyone isn't in the rowboat with him."

SILVER SPRING -- In this post-modern, omni-ironic world we inhabit, fewer and fewer things are exactly what they say they are. "The Movie Show on Radio" is one of those straightforward rarities. It's a show about movies. It's on radio. How hard is that? Think "Sneak Previews," minus the thumbs. And minus clips, too, at least visual ones. Once you get past "The Movie Show's" straightforward mission, however, its back-story is as full of twists and turns as the latest installment in the "Lethal Weapon" franchise.

IF YOU'VE LIVED in this town long enough and remember the great Allan Prell and wonder what he's been up to, I can now supply that information. Oh, you'll love this one. For starters, Prell is involved in another major project. By my count, this is about the 800th major project he's been involved with since he left WBAL-Radio (AM 1090) in a huff back in 1999, when he was the absolute best thing on the morning airwaves. This time, Prell, flaming liberal that he is, has written and produced a song called "Help Is on the Way," which he's trying to peddle to the John Kerry presidential campaign as a rallying anthem for the Democrats.

In the latest development in a two-month neighborhood battle, Baltimore County code enforcement officials have assessed $10,800 in fines against the owner of a new Pikesville methadone clinic who they say is operating illegally. An administrative hearing is set for June 18 for Helping Hand Inc. and its owner, Joel Prell, who contends that his clinic at 116 Slade Ave. opened one day before a county law banning such facilities in residential zones took effect. Neighbors claim Helping Hand and another clinic planned nearby are bad for the community.

I CATCH UP with Allan Prell at the sumptuous Reisterstown home of Morris the Remodeler, where the two are rehearsing a TV commercial that may set the advertising industry back 200 years. Right now, they're strolling with umbrellas in Morris' driveway and croaking their way through "Singin' in the Rain," thus doing permanent damage to the memory of Gene Kelly and the 1952 classic. "It may be so dreadful, it's good," Prell says of the commercial for his longtime buddy, home-remodeling guru Morris Ellin.
