All Kristen All Eliot All the Time All Weekend

March 14, 2008 |  7:40 pm

In case you hadn't heard, there's this working woman named Kristen who apparently got paid $5,500 for one night's duties in a Washington hotel with someone identified in a federal wiretap transcript as Client No. 9.

He's now immortalized on T-shirts and buttons.

The subscription service Sirius is dedicating an entire channel until midnight Monday to the case involving Kristen, and the Emperors' Club VIP and the about-to-be-former governor of New York, who used to be against prostitution.

According to a company statement, "Client 9 Radio was created in response to passionate listener response to the story throughout the week.'' The photos probably had nothing to do with this passionate response.

They're going to have on the programs the usual talking suspects -- Ed Koch, Judith Regan, Bill Bennett and Alan Dershowitz, who'll go on any channel at any time to argue about anything.

According to the Sirius statement right here on the desk, the programming will also include interviews with real live prostitutes and with presidential Candidate No. 1 for the Republican Party, whose political advisors may not have been consulted when the communications team so eagerly booked him onto this temporary radio channel about illicit sex.

But you better hurry, because the show's already started.
