RADIO SHOW OF THE WEEK.

Byline: - Fred Shuster

--``Outlaw Radio Live From the Lighten-Up Lounge'': A fast-paced talk show, hosted by ``Magic'' Matt Alan (called Mr. Cigar on the air) and guests, that dwells on the good life - big steaks, good cigars and mega martinis.

--Where: KRLA-AM (1110).

--When: 3 p.m. Saturdays.

--Typical segment: Depends on what's in the news or if Alan had an especially great martini the night before.

--Quote: ``I combined my passion for entertainment and cigars for a very male-skewing program. I believe we all have a right to our own brand of self-destruction, as long as it's legal.''

--Off the air: Alan spends time gathering sponsors for his 4 1/2-year-old show, which he broadcasts from his Encino hills back yard and syndicates to 58 markets.

--Background: Alan moved to Los Angeles in 1989 from New York's top-rated Z100, where he was unbeaten in his afternoon-drive time slot. Alan, who got his nickname from his fondness for magic tricks, also worked at KIIS-FM (102.7) for three years.

--Taking a stand: ``Sometimes I just won't allow females to listen. Isn't it amazing what a divorce will do?''

--You'll like this if: You like Don Imus or Howard Stern.
