The story...

This was the meeting the started it all. Way back in 1991 I met the King Of All Media Himself! Coincidentally, the night before was the first time I saw the Channel 9 show. I had never listened to Howard on the Radio. It was the Channel 9 episode where he played this really short guy in basketball and lost.

Anyway, my parents and I went to see Penn and Teller on Broadway. My Dad and I went to the bathroom before the show started. I was waiting outside the men's room when Howard walked right by me and into the bathroom. My Dad tell's me Howard Stern is in the bathroom.

So, we go back to our seats. The show is about to start and guess who comes it sits down directly behind my seat... I kid you not, HOWARD STERN! He is right behind me, Alison and the two kids behind my parents. It was really cool!

During intermission a few people came over to say hi to him. I decided to go for the autograph. I simply turned around and he was happy to do it. After the show, I also got Penn and Teller's autograph on the same playbill.

The next morning, I woke up and turn to KROCK. It's been non-stop ever since!
