WEST PALM BEACH, Fla., Sept. 9 (UPI) -- A Florida lawmaker forced to resign for sending sexually explicit e-mail to underage U.S. congressional pages will host a talk show, a radio station announced.

Former U.S. Rep. Mark Foley, R-Fla., makes his debut Sept. 22 on WSVU in West Palm Beach, ABC reported Wednesday.

Foley's new show, entitled "Inside the Mind of Mark Foley," will amaze you, says WSVU spokesman Joseph Rainier. Rainier says Foley will reveal the "inner workings of D.C." in between the music of Frank Sinatra, Barry Manilow and Barbra Streisand.

The former Republican lawmaker taped the first half of his one-hour premier show Tuesday, Rainier said.

Foley, 55, resigned his seat after ABC News questioned him about instant messages with former congressional pages, some of whom were under 18 at the time of the exchanges.

WSVU describes itself as an "adult standards music station catering to an older audience that is concerned with the current healthcare issue."
