Howard started off the show saying that the equipment must have been messed with over the weekend because it sounded different than usual. He admitted that he was irritated already. Scott the Engineer came in and said he didn't think anyone had changed anything as far as he knew. Howard asked him if he had any new book reports from his son. Last Friday he came in with a book report that was about censorship that his 18 year old son wrote. Howard read it very late in the show on Friday and didn't know what the hell was going on with it. He said he wanted to read it again but it may have gotten thrown away. Howard said that it was supposed to be about not censoring shows but when Howard read it, it seemed like he was saying there should be some. Howard spent a few minutes talking to Scott about his baldness and stuff like that. Howard seemed to cheer up a little bit after that.
Howard brought up Scott's son's paper again and goofed on that a little bit. Howard also asked Scott how his son's band is doing. Scott said that his son is in college even though he's in the band. Howard goofed on Scott for a little while after that. Artie was calling him the ''Mr. Kincaid'' of the band. Howard took that idea and goofed on Scott even more. While he was doing that he popped a zit that had been bothering him for a while. He said that there's nothing like popping a zit that's been annoying you for a long time. He said it probably looked like he was picking his nose but it was actually a zit.
Howard said that he thought he was losing his hearing on Saturday night. He went out to dinner over the weekend with some friends, Will and Carrie, to this club Lotus. He said that he wasn't able to hear Carrie speaking at the table and kept saying ''What?'' to her. He said that Beth could hear her but she was sitting close to her. While he was talking about that he said that he'd just gotten aroused for some reason. He asked Artie if he was as well. Artie said he wasn't and laughed when he heard that. Howard said that he's aroused like 90 percent of the time he's doing the show.
Robin said that Howard blew her off last night for some reason. Howard apologized to her for that and said that he had a lot of stuff going on yesterday. He agreed to go to this Entertainment Weekly Oscar party even though he had a feeling that it would be gay. He said that when he thought about it, he knew that all of the reporters there would ask him about everything going on with censorship. He knew that he'd look awful if he went because he'd have to wash his hair before going. He tried calling Robin to let her know that he wasn't going to show up. Robin said she didn't know that he'd called even though she was home when he did. Gary also bailed out on the evening because he was sick.
Robin told Howard that the reporters weren't inside the party so he wouldn't have had such a bad time there. Howard said he just wasn't in the mood to go there. This woman Lorrie Levine was trying to get Beth and Howard to show up for a while and when they didn't show up, she got upset. Howard said they did the same thing to her last year when the war started over in Iraq. Howard said that he didn't want to be seen drinking champagne at a party when the war was starting so he blew it off then.
Robin told Howard that she saw people like Liza Minelli, Regis Philbin, Star Jones, Monica Lewinski and Tatum O'Neil at the party. She told Howard about the run-ins she had with a couple of those people at the party. Robin said she also saw John Leguizamo at the part and she accidentally called him Emilio for some reason. He had to tell her who he was so she apologized and told him what a fan of his she was. Robin said she also saw Rose McGowan and a couple of other people.
Fred said that they were at a table with Ice T and a few other people. Robin mentioned a few other people that were there at the party before Lorrie Levine called in. Howard took a call from Lorrie and apologized for backing out of the party at the last minute. Howard said that Beth was really pissed at him for backing out of the party. He said she had this great outfit that was cut down to her pubic area and he was ready to trot her out in public. Howard said he didn't want to be a dick to the interviewers there because he knew they'd all be bugging him about the censorship subject.
Howard said he wouldn't tell Lorrie ''yes'' again for one of these parties because he's blown her off two years in a row now. She said that he will say yes again. Lorrie told Howard about Robin at the party and how good she looked. After hearing about some of the people who were there, Howard said that he should have gone. Lorrie told Howard about the ''Queer Eye'' guys who were there and said that Liza Minelli was very coherent at the party last night. Howard apologized to Lorrie for not showing up because he knows how much work goes into a party like that. Lorrie told him that it was okay and she understood why he didn't want to go. Howard wrapped up the call shortly after that.
Howard said he felt really bad about not going to the party. He just knew that the reporters would ask him about being kicked off the six Clear Channel stations last week. Artie said they're bringing out video of Howard from a long time ago on every news channel. Howard said that he saw Carson Daly defending him with Deborah Norville. He also saw one channel interviewing Chaunce Hayden about him. He spent a minute talking about that before he went to commercial break.
Howard then brought up the comedy show that Artie did with Stuttering John and Nick DiPaolo. Howard thought Artie said that John was booed off the stage but Artie corrected him and said that he got booed when he tried to bring him back up on stage at the end of the show. Artie said there was a lot of booing going on when Jay Leno's name was brought up. Artie said that it was John's final ''dirty'' comedy show. Howard goofed on Leno and did an impression of him talking to John a little bit.
Howard said that he saw John at Scores on Friday night. He had gone over there because Beth was out of town. He said he had a great time there. Howard said he was him with Ralph and Ronnie the Limo Driver at Scores. He also had Booker, Ross and Stuttering John who stopped in for a short time. Howard said John didn't stay long though. He said that John had dinner plans. He was having a goodbye dinner party or something like that.
Howard said that his daughter had a party to go to at a hotel. He and Robin talked about that for a short time. Howard said that it's ridiculous how much money people out on Long Island spend on their kids to entertain them. Howard said he was supposed to spend the day with his daughter but she was at the party so he went to Scores instead. He said he spent an hour talking to one of the girls for about an hour there at the bar. He said he had dinner with the guys and that went on until about 10 o'clock. He'd gotten there at about 8 o'clock. He didn't drink though because he'd had such a hard time after the Valentine's day party. He said he'd order a drink and would just start sipping it and say that it's a waste of time.
Howard said he ended up hearing two stripper's life stories while they danced for him. He said he was interested in talking to some people and that's who he heard. KC came in and said that you have to be strong to not drink in a place like that. Howard said he heard from the guys the next day and Ronnie said he was there until about 2 AM. Ronnie came in and told Howard about some of the stuff that went on after he left. Howard and Ronnie said that the girls will come and sit with you while you're eating and talk to you. Howard said it's great that they'll talk to you but one girl asked him how old he was. She said she looked about 34 years old but when he told her that he was 50 she said that he was only 5 years younger than her parents.
Howard said he should have told the woman that she wasn't allowed to ask that question. Ronnie said that Lonnie gets asked that question a lot as well but he doesn't tell anyone what it is. He said that Lonnie tells them that his birthday is on April 32nd. Howard said that the woman he was talking to was 28 years old and she was pretty hot. Ronnie said that they have a lot of new girls there because they're opening up a new club later this month.
KC was in and told Howard that his 24 year old friend is dating a girl who is only 17. Howard said that's just wrong and he shouldn't be doing it because it's illegal. KC thought that 17 was legal though. Howard said it's still creepy even if it is legal. KC said he heard that his buddy asked his girlfriend what she was doing last night and she said ''Well, it's a school night'' because she's still in high school. He said you have to be careful when you date someone that much younger than you.
Howard said he dated a 21 year old after his divorce. He said it was just too young for him. He said that now his cut off is 26. He and the guys got back to their Scores party discussion. Howard said he was there until about 1 in the morning and time just flies when you're around girls like that. Ronnie said that Ralph was there talking to a bunch of girls and introducing them to him saying that they were his ''friends.''
Howard was wondering if they were back on the Clear Channel stations yet because they were supposed to have just been suspended. Howard said that must mean they're fired. He said that the callers were saying that they weren't on this morning in those markets that he was removed from last week. Howard spent a short time on that subject and talked about the head of Clear Channel just kicking him off their radio stations a day before he had to go down to Washington DC to testify at some indecency hearings. Howard said this is the same guy who was trying to hire Opie and Anthony and some other guys like that for their radio stations. He's been on their stations for 10 years and now, all of a sudden, his show isn't right for their stations. Howard said that no one in the press is defending the show and it's really weird. Howard had to take a break after talking about that for a couple of minutes.
KC was in and noticed that Robin was sweating. She said that she was a little warm in her booth. That led to Howard talking about how he knew that moving into that building was a bad idea. He said he told Tom that he needed a studio with high ceilings because the E! lights would get really warm. He said that the ceilings ended up being lower than they were in the previous building. Howard said he asked for high ceilings and temperature control for the studio. The temperature controls don't work though. He said that Tom is an idiot and he told him that after all of this stuff went down.
Tom came in and said that he's not an idiot. Howard told him that he is an idiot and people like Gary the Retard don't know that they're idiots. Howard brought up how Gary the Retard was born on February 29th so he only celebrates his birthday every 4 years. He said the guy has only had like 11 birthday celebrations because of that.
Tom told Howard that they spent a lot of money to make his board work for him in the studio. Howard and Robin didn't know how that had anything to do with the ceiling height in the studio. Tom said that the ceilings were high enough, it's just the lights that hang too low. Tom said that the high ceilings aren't good for radio sound. They're good for the TV show but not for the radio show. Howard said that it affects the radio show though so it does matter. He wanted to kick Tom out of the studio but KC said that he could probably beat Tom in a general knowledge quiz. He said he only got an 820 on his SAT tests.
Howard had 5 questions but Tom didn't want to play the game. Tom said that he could ask KC some questions. Howard asked KC ''How many cards in a deck of cards?'' and he got it right. He asked Tom ''How many centimeters are in a meter?'' Tom said ten and got it wrong. Howard asked the two of them a few more questions and both of them got a few correct. Tom didn't want to play the game but Howard made him answer the questions anyway. KC knew more than he should have so Tom thought that he wrote the questions and the game was a set up. KC said he didn't though and did miss a question or two. They were tied up toward the end of the game. They both got a couple more questions wrong so Howard said that neither of them are all that bright.
Howard went on to talk about all of the stuff that has been going on. He said that this is all tied into the Martha Stewart case. He explained how she had to go through all of this crap and the government spent tons of money on trying to convict her. Now the biggest charge against her was thrown out by the judge. He said that back when the FCC fined his station for indecent broadcasting, his boss should have taken them to court instead of paying them. He said that the guy from Clear Channel should have done the same thing because they're just being bullied by the government. He said that they wouldn't be able to prove anything if they were taken to court. He said he thinks they would have won back when the first major fines were paid off. He said it's a form of racketeering that this country has never seen before.
Howard said that some people are saying that after he started bad mouthing President Bush and how they should vote him out, that's when Clear Channel took him off the air. He said that it may be the reason he was taken off the air by Clear Channel. He said there's no court for him though and he can't do anything about it. Howard said this is one of the bad things about letting two companies own most of the radio stations out there. He said that if they cave into something like that, there's no other companies to put him on the air.
Howard said that Lenny Bruce was hounded over stuff that he was saying years ago and when you look back on what he said, it was nothing. Howard also said that they're thinking of having rules enforced on cable channels just like they do on network TV. Howard mentioned the gay marriage thing as well and how these nuts are saying that gays can't get married because they can't have kids. He wondered why they don't ban people who are sterile from getting married if marriage is just for couples that can procreate.
Howard then pointed out that the religious nuts are the ones complaining about violence in movies but they have no problem with ''The Passion of the Christ'' which is one of the most violent movies out there. He went off on that for a short time before saying that Andy Dick was there.
Howard said he'd tell Beth that Andy was gay but Beth told him ''I don't think so.'' Andy said that she reminded him of his ex-girlfriend. He said that his ex is getting married to Madonna's guitar player. He said he's going to give her a gift of the two cats they bought when they were together. He said that the cats are crapping all over his house now that he's moved. He wants to just wrap them up in a box and give it to his ex as a wedding gift. Howard said that Andy is looking pretty good for a 38 year old. Andy said that he hasn't had any work done on himself.
Howard told Andy that he can't perform his song because of all of the stuff that's going on with censorship. He and Andy spent a few minutes talking about the insanity of the whole thing. Andy wondered what it means to be kicked off the six stations and if he'll ever be back on. Howard said he doesn't think he'll be back on those stations. He said they will have to pay him off though so it won't affect his income that much. Robin said in the long run it would because the contract will eventually expire.
Andy told Howard that he's been banned from a bunch of comedy clubs. He said that he's actually banned from the whole state of Florida because of what he's done on stage at clubs there.
Howard said he thought that the celebrities out there at the Oscars last night might have said something about his treatment but no one said anything. That led to the guys talking about the Oscars. Howard asked Andy if he thinks that Billy Crystal sucks as a host. Andy didn't want to say anything about that. Howard and Andy talked about some of the other stuff that went on during the award show and how Bill Murray cried when he lost to Sean Penn.
Andy said he thinks that he'll get some kind of movie offer eventually but right now he's not in anything. While Andy and Howard were talking there were a few delay hits for some reason.
Howard asked Andy if he'd seen ''The Passion of the Christ'' yet. He hadn't seen it so he talked about how he asked his parents if they'd seen it. He talked about how his mother doesn't want to see it because it's violent and she has enough problems in her own life. He said she doesn't want that kind of anger and violence in her life.
Andy said that the show he's on, ''Less than Perfect,'' is going into it's third year next season. He said that they're on after ''According to Jim'' and they're getting good ratings. He said that they're usually number 1 in their time slot. Andy also told Howard that he's doing a bunch of other shows today. He said that he can get on just about any show but can't get on Letterman's show for some reason. Andy said that he doesn't remember what he did the last time he was on Letterman's show. He also talked about how Leno will never have him on his show either. That led to Howard goofing on Jay and saying that he's a big pussy, that's why he won't have him on.
Andy said that he has a new MTV show coming up soon but it's supposed to be a big secret. Howard told him he was really good on the last MTV show he had.
A listener called in and said he wanted to goof on Billy Crystal's man-boobs on the Oscars last night. Howard and Andy goofed on Billy for a minute and talked about his man-boobs and how it looked like he shaved his pubes. Howard said it looked like he had an A-cup breast. The guys spent a couple of minutes goofing on some of the other stuff that went on during that award show.
Howard ended up asking Andy if he's had sex with any guys lately. Andy said he hasn't done that and he's had some chicks in the past few months. KC came in and told Howard that there was a girl there in the green room who Andy picked up at a club last night. Howard had KC bring her in a minute later. Howard said that she was really cute and that Andy has an eye for talent. She was only 18. Howard asked her what her name was and if she was still in High School. Her name was Cara and she's out of school. Cara said that she'd like to be an actor but Andy thought she wanted to be his assistant. She said she wants to do that as well.
Howard tried to find out what she and Andy did at this club Bungalo 8 last night. Howard had her take off her jacket and he said she really was hot after seeing that. Howard told her he might be able to hook her up with an agent. She said that every guy she meets just wants to be her boyfriend. Howard asked her where she slept last night. She said she stayed at Andy's place but then changed her story and said that she actually went home. Andy said that he doesn't think he's going to get anywhere with her. Howard said he thinks that he'll get into her pants though. She's only been with one guy so far and has only been having sex for about 2 years or so. She's still with the guy who is now down in Texas.
Howard said he thinks that Andy will be banging her soon and she might as well spread her legs now. He said in two years she's going to hate him and he'll have to deal with that on the radio show. Cara told Howard that he looks like her father. Andy told Howard that he might have a chance now that she's said that. Howard asked Cara not to have sex with Andy because he'd be really jealous.
Howard asked Cara if she's been invited to L.A. To see a taping of Andy's show yet. She said she's flying out to California on Friday. She wasn't invited to see the taping though. Howard started to wrap up the interview a short time later. Andy said that it sucks that Leno is stealing Stuttering John.
Howard spent a little more time talking to Cara about Andy. Howard said that he thinks that she'll eventually sleep with Andy even though she was saying that she doesn't just sleep with guys just because they're in an exciting world. Andy said that he's not going to go there with her because he really does believe in the ''code of men.'' He doesn't want to go there as long as she's dating the other guy. Andy wanted to perform one of his songs (''Leonard's Ass is Bleeding... because he drank too much'') but Howard couldn't let him do it because it was too dirty. Andy said that if you want to hear the song, you can listen to it on his web site AndyDick.com. Howard went to break a short time after that.
Howard had a voice mail of Artie's mother leaving a message for him on his answering machine. He said he has so much tape to play that it's going to take him all week to get to it all. He said he doesn't want any guests tomorrow because of that. KC came in and said that he didn't think Andy's girlfriend was all that hot. He said that she seemed kind of conceded and really didn't like her. Howard told KC that he thinks he hates women. KC said he knows that he has a lot of problems with women. Howard said he doesn't think he's gay but he does seem to hate women. KC said that he doesn't think it all has to do with his father like Howard does. Howard tried to explain to KC that he probably had anger toward his parents and that's where a lot of his problems come from. Howard wanted to know why KC is so angry in his life. KC didn't want to get into that stuff but Howard kept on him about it.
KC said that he hates people who won't give him his space and people who go through his things. Howard asked him if his mother ever did any of that stuff. He said he doesn't think she did. Howard wondered if he ever felt powerless when his mother wouldn't let him do stuff. Howard eventually got KC to talk about some stuff. KC said that he hates women who lie about the reasons they do certain things. Howard said that KC is just a really angry guy. KC said that a lot of women lie to him and he hates that. He said he knows that he probably sounds crazy talking the way he is. He said he's still going to the psychiatrist to try and figure this stuff out though. He's only going once a week though and Howard seems to think that he should be going more often. KC said that they corrected the medication problems he was having. Now they've corrected that and they have to work on his depression.
Howard and the guys were goofing on KC about his problems after that. Fred had some eerie music playing in the background as they goofed on him as well. Howard had to move on though because he had so many other things to play.
Howard had tape of Artie's mother leaving a message on his machine. She was just checking up on him about the sausage bread that she left for him in the refrigerator. Artie talked about how great this sausage bread is and what it's made out of. Howard wondered if his mother sees his weight and worries about that. Artie said she makes a couple of weeks worth of food and loads up his fridge with it. He said that she's coming over tonight with a ton of meatballs. He said he just has to throw it in the microwave to heat the stuff up.
Artie told Howard about how he reheats some of the food he gets from his mother and ends up with oil and cheese running down his arm. KC said that he went over to Artie's house one time and there was a giant tray of black and white cookies there. He said that it's not just a small box of cookies, it's like a catered party size box. Artie said he just can't control himself when there's a pizza or something like that in the room.
Dominic Barbara called in to talk about KC's psychiatrist since he's the one who sent him there. Dominic said that he hasn't gotten any bills from them lately and he's worried that KC isn't really going. KC said that he would tell them if he wasn't going and he has been going every week.
A listener called in and asked if the Las Vegas shows are still on. Howard said that they are still on and it's the second week in May that they're going. Howard said they're going to have homeless people bowling in his suite at the Hard Rock and a bunch of other stuff.
Howard took a few more phone calls and people were wondering if there's anything they can do about him being taken off the air and all of this censorship stuff. One guy asked him if he's ever going to move to satellite radio. Howard said if he went to satellite tomorrow, they'd sell a ton of satellite radio subscriptions and he might just revolutionize the whole satellite thing. He said he was thinking of retiring in a couple of years but now he's thinking he might just move to satellite and make that whole thing work.
Howard said that he was going to organize a march on Washington DC but he doesn't think that anyone will show up. Robin told him that people would show up like they have to so many other events of theirs. Howard said he just doesn't want to do it himself. Howard said he might just send Beetlejuice down there to do it for him instead. Fred played some tape of Beetlejuice mumbling stuff and yelling out as Howard was talking about that.
Howard said it would be funny if he announced they were going to Washington and everyone showed up in Washington state. Mariann from Brooklyn called in and said that she has a petition that she's gotten about 100 people to sign so far. She read the petition to Howard and told him to keep the faith. She said that he doesn't realize how much people love him and what they're willing to do to keep him on the air. Artie goofed on Mariann's crow-like voice for a few seconds after her call.
One listener in Kentucky called in and said that the station he's on was counting down how much longer Howard had on the air. The guy wasn't even really clear about what the station was doing. Howard said it sounded like they were just counting down how many hours he had left on the air today. Howard had to take a break shortly after that call.
Howard moved on to the Junk to a Hunk guys who are trying to lose weight on a Bally Total Fitness plan. They've been working on losing weight for the past few weeks. First up was Tomas who originally weighed in at 423 pounds. Last week he was down to 393 pounds and today he weighed in at 386.
Rob was the second contestant who weighed in at 335 on the first weigh in. Last week he was at 315 and this week he was down to 304. Howard said that the winner wins a ''date'' with a porn star as well as $10,000. Howard spoke to both of the guys for a couple of minutes. Tom asked Howard if they could win some tickets to Wrestlemania. Howard didn't even have those to give away so he doesn't know what they were talking about. He got rid of them a short time later.
Howard and Robin ended up talking about a bit they'd like to do where they do a spoof of ''The Passion of the Christ'' with Howard as Christ being crucified by people like Michael Powell of the FCC.
A listener called in and told Howard that he thinks this whole thing has to do with the fact that Clear Channel is behind the Republican party so much. Howard said that it is kind of odd that after he started bad mouthing Bush, Clear Channel took him off the air. The caller also told Howard that he's glad that Stuttering John is off the show now. Howard talked about that for a short time and said that John seems to think that going on the Leno show might be his ticket into doing sitcoms and stuff. The caller said that Jackie probably thought the same thing when he left the show. Howard had Robin start her news after that quick phone call.
Howard started the show off talking about Sophia Coppola and how she doesn't look like she has any fun. Howard said she looks like she's always sucking on a sour ball. He also talked about how he just fast forwarded through the Academy Awards on his TiVo and watching them that way isn't so bad. He thought some of the stuff was funny but he had to fast forward through it because he can't sit through the whole thing. Howard went on to complain about how the TiVo doesn't automatically record extra time for live shows. He wants the thing to record an extra half hour of a live show if you don't have anything scheduled after it. Gary and Robin tried to tell Howard that he can set up the thing to pad the time automatically but he didn't want to hear that.
Howard complained about his vision for a short time as well and said he needs to get that laser surgery. He also said that Gary was back today after being out sick yesterday.
Howard asked Robin how her farewell party for John was last night. She said it was sad but good and she had closure after the party. Gary was there as well and said that he saw Bryant Gumbel there. He knew about John leaving and figured that Howard was there giving John a big toast to wish him well. Howard didn't sound like he was so thrilled about John going to Jay Leno's show and he didn't make it to the party. Howard ended up goofing on Jay again. The guys said they heard that John has to fly out there to get fitted for wardrobe and some other stuff before he starts his announcing gig on Leno's show.
Howard said that he said goodbye to John on Friday night so last night didn't really matter. Gary said he heard that even that was kind of weird for them though. Howard said he gave John a big hug there so he doesn't know what they're talking about. Gary said John wasn't the one who said it though. Howard went on to talk about how weird John is about some things. He said he was there at Scores and was trying to talk to chicks so John may have said another goodbye but he was busy talking to a chick.
Robin said that it was good to have the people from work at the dinner last night. She said she just told people to invite other people to the party so there were a bunch of people there. Artie was there so Gary told Howard about some of the things he did there. That led to Howard saying that he had to tip Artie off to something kind of disturbing. They didn't say exactly what it was though.
Artie is going out to the Aspen Comedy Festival out in Colorado. He said he doesn't want to go to the thing but his ''representation'' wants him to be seen out there. He's turned it down in the past and this time he's doing it. He said he'll be gone the rest of the week. He said that he doesn't like stuff like that and he doesn't ski. There's no one out there for him to have a drink with and he doesn't know what he's going to get out of it. He said that the people at Touchstone want him to do it as well. He's got a deal with them and ABC so he's going to do it.
Howard said that he thinks Artie shouldn't be going to an event like this. He doesn't need to kiss anyone's ass. Artie said that his act does well with people who are like him, not show business people. He said that he may offend some of those people if they're a little bit ''uppity.'' Artie said that his act is a dirty comedy club act and he thinks that this whole thing could hurt him. His manager is the one who wants him to do this whole thing.
Howard brought up Sophia Coppola again and said she seems really damaged or something. She looked really wasted physically and like she didn't want to get up when she had to. Howard said that Julia Roberts didn't look good on the pre-show coverage but once she was up on stage she looked great. He spent a short time talking about how he'd like to foul her. That led to them playing some of Vinnie Favale's love tapes and goofing on those for a short time. Artie said those don't ever get old to him. Howard talked about how Vinnie seems to think he's better looking than he really is and it's really disturbing.
A listener called in and told Howard that the instrument that Sting was playing was called a Herdy Gerdy. They talked about the instrument for a few seconds and then moved back to the Academy Awards. Howard had tape of Liv Tyler talking about something in a funny voice. Howard said he had a ton of tapes to play today but he had to take a break first.
Howard brought up Mel Gibson and his movie ''The Passion of the Christ'' and how he's being ripped to shreads by the Jews. He talked about mel's father and how wacky that guy is. He compared Mel's movie to these ''Passion Plays'' that used to be done in Germany to subtly bash the Jews many years ago. He said that this is why people hate Mel Gibson and that's why he didn't show up to the Academy Awards.
Howard said that Jay Leno interviewed him on his show and didn't even mention the anti-semitism thing with him. Howard called Jay a big pussy for not bringing that stuff up. He said that Jay is a ''lying douche'' and a ''half freak of nature'' as he was complaining about him. He said that television is disgusting and ''safe broadcasters'' are disgusting. That led to him complaining about the head of Clear Channel having no balls and how he caved when he had to go up in front of Congress.
Howard said that he thinks his show is going to be off the air within a month. He said that it's too dangerous and there are too many people who feel that way. He also said that he's going to film a movie where the FCC guys come in and rip him to shreads for two straight hours. He said he'll be naked but his penis will be covered because he doesn't want to show that.
Howard moved on to the phones and took some calls from some fans that were upset about him being taken off the air. One caller said that they've been posting advertisers who are using Clear Channel stations in newsgroups so they can stop using them. Howard said that he was warned not to talk about this congress woman that he has goofed on over the past couple of weeks. He said he can't even play a phony phone call that has her name mentioned in it because of the warnings. Howard didn't mention her name but I will... Heather Wilson.
Howard said that his agent has been waiting for a call back from Clear Channel about them dropping the show. He hasn't heard back and they have the right to go to another station in those markets. Howard said that Clear Channel is afraid to make the phone call for some reason. They called another person in the company instead. The caller Howard had on the line had tape of his local radio station about how they don't even know what's going on with the show being dropped. Howard said the managers at those stations are upset about the show being dropped. Howard said that Clear Channel just renewed his show in some of those markets so he doesn't get what's going on.
Howard had to bail out on the phone caller he had on. He just went on and on too much for Howard so he bailed out. Howard said all he wants to do is go on the air and make people laugh. He said he was trying to set up something yesterday to create some great radio but with the way things are going, it's not easy. Robin said that some people think that they're off the air everywhere even though they were just taken off of 6 stations.
Howard took a call from a guy who changed subjects and mentioned the ''Stuck on You'' show that was on E! last night. Howard and the caller talked about the show and how crazy some of the stuff was. Howard said that Jeff the Drunk falls down in the street and gets pissed when the E! guys don't help him stand up. Artie did his impression of Jeff for a few seconds and goofed on that whole thing. Howard said that the second episode of that show is airing tonight at 11pm on E!. He went to break shortly after that.
Howard took a call from a listener who can't hear Howard's show anymore. Howard went on to tell the guy that he thinks he will be pulled off the air soon and won't be able to communicate with his fans. He thinks that the country is being set back by 50 years because of all of this stuff. He went on to applaud New Jersey Governor James McGreevy and how he recently announced that he wants to keep up the stem cell research thing even though President Bush doesn't.
Howard took a call from a guy who said the only way he has to keep up on the show these days is MarksFriggin.com. Artie gave it the thumbs up after hearing the mention. (Thanks guys!) Robin said that they might have to start a site to keep the fans informed as well.
Howard got back to the stem cell research thing and how Bush doesn't want to allow it. Howard said that it could lead to cures for many things but Bush doesn't want it to happen. Howard spent a couple of minutes on that and then moved on to other stuff.
Howard brought up how Clear Channel fired Rick Dees recently and hired Ryan Seacrest (RyanSeacrest.com). He said he doesn't see the difference between the two of them though. He said that Ryan went on the air for his first show without a delay and took some phone calls. Howard said that you have to remember that this is on Clear Channel. He said that Clear Channel claims they removed him because a caller used the N-word one day last week. When Seacrest took calls they used the S-word and F-word and now they're blaming Howard for it. Howard said they think that Howard is in cahoots with those callers and he set them up. Howard sounded pissed that they're blaming him for something so ridiculous. Since there was no delay, the F-word made it out. They took a second call a short time later and the S-word made it out over the air.
It was a little kid who said the S-word and Howard is still taking the blame for that crap. Robin said that the show sounds just like the Rick Dees show. That led to Howard goofing on Seacrest and his lame sounding show for a couple of minutes. Howard said ''Poor Rick Dees.'' He said they fired a horrible guy to hire another horrible guy. Howard said that the F-bomb probably never got out on Rick's show though.
Howard had tape of Carson Daly and Deborah Norville discussing what's going on with his show. He said he was asked to do Norville's show but he turned that down. Daly defended Howard and said that nothing that's been happening on his show lately is any different than it has been for the past 10 years. Howard got bored with his thoughts pretty quick. Daly was saying that someone may not have been doing their job at the time. Howard said that these people who are defending him just don't know what they're talking about. Howard says that there was no reason to hit the delay and he wasn't going to censor a phone caller for saying the N-word. That's what Clear Channel is claiming was the last straw.
Howard had tape of Chaunce Hayden defending him on the Fox and Friends show. He played that and the host said that Chaunce can be heard on Howard's show just about every day. Howard said that he does call in often. There was a woman on the air talking about how the FCC has laid down the law as far as indecent broadcasting but Howard pointed out that it's not true. They just randomly fine people without clearly defining what's indecent. The woman, from the Parents Television Council, has no idea that the FCC is not the law. She also said that Howard was indecent with what ''he'' said on Tuesday. Howard said that it was a caller who used the N-word that Clear Channel found to be indecent. The woman kept saying that the Supreme Court has ruled on this stuff but they haven't. Howard said that they only ruled on the 7 dirty words. Howard said that he doesn't use those seven dirty words.
Howard said that Chaunce wasn't really equipped to handle the conversation he was having. He said that he should have been asking the woman what it was that Howard said that was so upsetting. Howard went through that stuff for a couple of minutes before moving on to Mancow.
Mancow was on a show talking about Howard. Sean Hannity was talking about how Howard was fined for talking about pop star Selena. Robin flipped out when she heard that because that's not what they were fined over. Howard said that was the most ridiculous part of his career. Then Hannity put Mancow on the air and asked him what he thought about that. Mancow said that Howard is big but he beats him in Chicago. Howard said that's not true but let the tape keep playing. Mancow said that what's going on is pretty scary. Mancow also brought up how Howard talked about raping the corpse of his father at one time. He said he'd like to see a bullet put in Howard's head after that. Howard went on to talk about Mancow's father again but the delay was being hit on everything he was saying. He got back to the tape shortly after that.
Hannity and Mancow continued their discussion but Howard said it just goes on and on and on. He said he was afraid to listen to anymore of it. He had tape of a few other people who defended him. He got back to the Mancow tape and let that play. Howard ended up goofing on Mancow's delivery and how fast the guy can talk. He also interrupts Hannity as they're trying to have this discussion. Robin suggested that if they're on the same boat that they ship them out of here. Howard and the guys were goofing on Mancow's wacky way of talking and interrupting Hannity.
Howard had tape of this lawyer Jason Shrinski who claims to have represented him at one time. Howard said the guy never represented him, he was on the other side in a contract negotiation. Shrinski says that there will be a lot of change because of all of this stuff. Artie pointed out that none of these people made good points in any of these interviews.
Howard said he might have to do an interview since none of these people made good points. He said that he pitched the idea of doing an interview with himself to ABC and they liked it. He demonstrated that idea on the show recently. He'd ask himself a question and run back and forth from one chair to the other to answer the questions. Artie and Fred continued to goof on Mancow for a couple of minutes.
A listener called in and said that part of the Jason Shrinski thing got a delay hit for some reason. Howard checked with the guys and they told him that they didn't hit the delay on that. Howard told the guy that he may have just had something funny going on with his radio.
Howard said that if he goes and does an interview, it's not going to do any good. He said he knows what people want to hear on the air and that's why he's having Jeff Levy the vomit guy on the show.
Howard brought in this guy Jeff Levy who likes to have women vomit on guys. A woman was also coming in to vomit on him because she's so sick of hearing him complain that there aren't enough chicks out there to vomit on him. Howard spent a minute talking to Levy who KC said smells awful today. Levy used to be a Postal worker who got off on disability. He said that he was on it back in the late 80's but it took him a while to get it. Howard said they may have given it to him because they think he's crazy.
Levy said that he lives off of about $700 a month from the disability. Howard thought he was still living with his parents but Jeff said that his mother died last year. Howard wondered if she's still in the house. Jeff said that she is buried. Jeff now lives with his father. Howard read that he Jeff had the cops called on him one time because he was yelling at his father. Jeff said that he doesn't know who made that call but the only thing he yells at is the TV set.
Howard talked to Jeff about how he spends a lot of money on lottery tickets. Jeff told Howard that he doesn't have to pay rent because he lives with his father. Howard wrapped up that discussion a short time later and wanted to get to the vomiting.
KC came in and said that Jeff had vomit poems to read but Howard wasn't interested. Howard heard that Jeff also goes to the bathroom when he takes a bath. Jeff denied that though so Howard just moved on.
Jessica was the woman who came in to vomit on Jeff. She used to be a stripper. Howard asked Jeff what he thought of her and he found her attractive. She said she's so disgusted by him that she wanted to puke on him right away. Jeff said that he went to a dominatrix a few months ago to get vomited on him but it costs too much. He said it costs him about $250 for an hour or so to get that done.
Howard spent a couple more minutes with Jessica and found out she was going to be wearing clothes while she did it. She said she's not that happy with her body because she lost a lot of weight a few years ago and her boobs are saggy. She said that she finds the guy so vile that she'll be able to vomit on him no problem. Jeff said he has a girlfriend who understands his fetish but she doesn't like to do it. That's why he has to go out and do this stuff.
Howard said that this really disgusts him and he doesn't think he can watch. Jessica said she was doing this for all of the Bulimic girls out there. KC came in and said that Baba Booey was boycotting the segment and refused to come in during it. Howard wanted him to come in but he wasn't coming.
Robin asked Jeff if he'd be into having a guy vomit on him. He said he's not into that, he's only into chicks vomiting on him. Howard had Gary come in even though he didn't want to be there. He was afraid he was going to puke.
Howard had Jessica go ahead and vomit on Jeff. They had the microphone right there in her face so you could hear every gag and the sound of the vomit coming up. Howard had to ask her to stop because she just kept going. Gary said he came close to puking as well. Jeff was rubbing it in all over himself.
Both Jessica and Jeff got in some plugs for some things. Jessica said she works at the Village Idiot in New York City and Jeff got in a couple of plugs for VomitOnline.com and HowardShrine.com. Howard had to kick them out because he was so disgusted by what just went on. Richie from E! was freaking out according to Howard. As they were walking Jeff out they were wiping him down. They had a towel all filled with vomit. KC said that it smelled awful. Howard said it's the last time they ever do that. KC suggested that they do it out on the street next time.
Howard took a call from Ralph who said he can't imagine what it must have been like. He said he thinks that Howard should be taken off the air for that. A couple of other callers also called in and talked about what just went on. Howard said that six cities missed out on that bit.
KC came in a short time later with Howard's lunch. Howard wasn't in any rush to eat it though since he'd just seen the vomiting. He took a few more calls after that. A couple of callers from Pittsburgh called in and said that's what they miss about the show. Another guy called in and said that he wasn't sure if he should laugh or vomit himself. Howard said it looked really bad and it was almost like Manhattan Clam Chowder when it came out. One caller asked if they can even show that on E!. Howard said they can.
Howard took a few more calls and let some more people give their thoughts on what had just happened. Robin said that she was exhausted after that. Captain Janks called in and said that he threw up on his front porch and saw a bunch of people in their cars vomiting out their windows. Gary came in and said he came really close to losing it himself. Fred said the same thing. Gary was disgusted by the sounds she was making before she threw up. The guys tried to figure out what happened to Levy and why he likes stuff like that. Howard said he might be able to do a psychological profile of the guy but it would take quite a while. He whipped through a few more phone calls after that.
One caller brought up the FCC again so Howard mentioned that he hasn't been fined by the FCC in over 10 years which is the crazy part of the whole thing. The caller also told Howard that he thinks he should sue Clear Channel for defamation after what they did. Howard said that's a good idea but he doesn't know that he'd want to get into something like that. He said he'd have a pretty good case against them but he's not sure what he's going to do. He had to take a break after that but he quickly mentioned that Jay Leno is planning on doing shows from Las Vegas the same week they're out there. Howard said that they don't want to be there when he's there. He may just run over with a microphone and confront Jay. He went to break right after that.
Howard took a phone call from a guy who asked Robin if she could smell the vomit in her booth. She said she couldn't smell it. The caller also asked Howard if he's going to move to satellite radio. Howard said he has two years left on his contract and if that doesn't last, he might move to satellite. Howard said that his company might have a no compete clause in the contract and he may not be able to go right to satellite. He said the whole idea of satellite is intriguing to him.
Howard read that the FCC wants to start going after cable and satellite services over indecency. Howard said that it doesn't make any sense but they're saying that when you buy cable packages you are forced to take channels you don't want. Howard thinks that the whole thing is ridiculous of course.
Howard had Jon Hein from JumpTheShark.com to talk about February Sweeps month that's actually over now. Howard didn't know what he wanted to talk about that stuff for so he spent some time on some other stuff first.
Howard said that Jon got involved with Vinnie Favale a couple of years ago and if he'd heard Vinnie's love tapes before that, he would have never gotten in the same car with him.
Howard had Jon talk about some of the stuff that's going on with American Idol this season. He said it seems like there's not enough talent on the show this season and they're relying on the bad singers more instead. John also said that Paula and Randy have taken over the show and are always cutting off Simon when he's talking. He and Howard talked about that show for a couple of minutes and Jon seems to think that the show has Jumped the Shark.
Jon also said that ''Friends'' has Jumped the Shark big time in the final season. They talked about ''Super Millionaiare'' a little bit and how it's really not that good. Jon said that it got good ratings the first night but it dropped off after that during the week. Jon and Howard talked about the Academy Awards for a short time as well. Jon seemed to think that Billy Crystal didn't do that great of a job as the host.
Jon talked about the Grammy's and how that wasn't all that great this year either. Both Howard and Jon seem to think that Joan Rivers' coverage of the red carpet is more entertaining than the award shows themselves.
The Super Bowl half time show came up as well and Howard said he actually enjoyed it. He said that Janet's breast was covered with the silver thing anyway so he doesn't know what the big deal is. He wondered where all of the people are who actually enjoyed that part of the half time show.
Jon said that he thinks ''The Sopranos'' is going to be good this season even though he thought it Jumped the Shark in it's last season. Robin asked Jon what he thinks of ''8 Simple Rules'' bringing in David Spade. Jon said that's like bringing in Scott Baio to play Chachi on ''Happy Days.'' He said that he thinks Spade is really funny but that show should have ended after John Ritter died.
Jon thought that the final episode of ''Sex and the City'' was good. Howard said that he'll actually go to see the movie when they bring that out. Jon thought that it was worth tuning in each week because you could rely on them showing nudity. Howard said he thinks that it did well because it was well written. He thinks it'll do well in syndication as well because of that even though they will have to censor out the nudity.
Howard asked if ''Whoopi'' was still on the air. He was surprised to hear that it is. Jon told Howard that ''Scrubs'' is a funny show. Howard read through some other shows that were on his list and said that he was asked to do the ''Hope and Faith'' show. Howard said they want him to play Kelly Ripa's ex-husband on the show. He said that he will participate in the show if he's allowed to have sex with Kelly. Jon said that Ted McGinley is on that show and he's the kiss of death to any show he's on.
Jon and Howard talked about ''The Apprentice'' and Jon likes that. They also talked about the Paris Hilton show and how that will Jump the Shark in the second season. He said people have expectations now and they won't live up to them. Jon said he thinks that ''Survivor'' Jumped the Shark long ago.
Howard said that Gary was out in Chicago doing a couple of appearances out there. Gary said that everything went great but he was in a quick car accident. Howard asked him if he went through the windshield or something. Gary said that a lot of people out there asked him when they were going to be back on the radio. He said he had to tell them that they're still on the radio there. Gary said he ended up getting sick as he was heading home on the plane. He threw up 3 times and had diarrhea as well. He was in coach and ended up getting bumped up to first class by someone who recognized him. Gary said that it was a really bad scene because he'd puked on his pants in the bathroom. He also said that he messed his underwear and his wife was the one who had to wash it. Howard wondered why he didn't just throw it away. Gary said that something happened when he was sleeping at home that night as well. He ended up messing up the sheets in bed.
Howard spent another minute with Jon before taking a break. Jon talked about the season finale of ''Average Joe'' and how the chick on that show picked the good looking guy and then told him that she once dated Fabio. The guy ended up bolting and dumped her after finding that out.
Howard asked Jon what he thinks about Jay Leno stealing Stuttering John for his show. Jon said that he's just stealing more stuff like he's been doing for years. He said that people think that ''The Tonight Show'' Jumped the Shark when Jay took over. Howard and Jon talked about how Jay could have developed his own intern or something for the show instead of stealing Stuttering John. Jon seems to think they did that to get a younger audience and time will tell if it will work. Howard gave Jon a plug for his paperback book ''Jump the Shark'' and went to break shortly after that.
Howard said someone told them that ARtie had better be careful drinking in Aspen because it's at a high altitude and if he drinks too much, he could kill himself. Artie sadi he'd be drinking right through it though. He said if he feels light headed, he'll take it easy. Howard said if the person who is upset actually comes around, they'd bring him in during Robin's news. Robin started the news but 10 seconds later KC came in with the person who was upset. It turned out to be Beetlejuice (JollyDwarf.com). Beet was in a bad mood so Howard asked him what the problem was. Beetle said he doesn't care about the government or anything. Howard asked him if he's upset about the government and if he feels defeated. Beet just took a sip of water and said he doesn't care. Howard asked him what makes him feel this way but Beet said he just doesn't ''care about nothing.'' Beetle had no idea what Howard was talkign about as far as the government, he just doesn't care about anything.
Howard asked Beetlejuice if he cares about him or Robin. Beet said that he doesn't care about anyone else. He said he doesn't care about Sean (his manager) or Sean's son. He said he only cares about himself. Beetle told Howard that someone said something to him that made him mad but he wasn't giving him any details. Howard noticed that Beet had a bruise under his eye so he figured he got punched or something. He said he didn't though.
Howard told Beet that he wanted him to lead their march on Washington DC but Beet said he wasn't up for that. KC asked him about a speech he was working on for the march. Beetle said he didn't need a speech. Howard continued to try and figure out who siad something to Beetlejuice to upset him so much. Beet said he might kill someone over this. He told Howard he has killed people in the past and they don't want to know about that. Howard kept asking Beetlejuice about all of these people who work there at the station but Beetlejuice wasn't saying who gave him a hard time. The guys were throwing in names of people that Beetle doesn't even know trying to get him to talk.
Beet's manager Sean called in and told Howard that the reason Beet is so upset is because his Grandmother died recently. He siad that he's been waking up on the wrong side of the bed lately because of that. Sean's son got on the line as well and sadi that he heard that Beetle doesn't care about him. Beetlejuice told him he didn't say anything like that... but he did. Howard told Beet he was sorry to hear about his grandmother and said he hopes he's alright. Beetle said that he has some stuff to figure out. Howard let him go after that and sadi he really does feel bad for the guy. Howard said Beet was strangely more mature than they were today.
Howard started off the show saying he was exhausted this morning. He said last night he smelled fire at 8:30 last night so he ran out of the building. There was something going on in an elevator shaft. He didn't get back in until 10:00 last night. He had to carry his dog back up 50-some flights of stairs so he was worn out. He said they were running down the stairs and Beth said that the dog couldn't make it.
Howard said he had to calm himself down after all of that so he watched ''American Idol.'' Robin said she doesn't like the show anymore but she has to watch it to keep up on pop culture. She said she does enjoy hearing Simon's comments though. Gary came in and said that Paula and Randy interrupt Simon and it's really annoying to the audience.
Howard took a call from a caller who said that his local station that dropped the show is using stuff from current shows as promos. Howard said he doesn't know how they can do that because Clear Channel is in breach of contract so they have no rights to the show at this point. Howard said there's a lot going on behind the scenes about all of this stuff and he wants to say some things that Robin wouldn't believe.
Howard said that there are reporters saying that this had nothing to do with what they were saying on the air, it all had to do with him saying they have to vote President Bush out of office. He said that Clear Channel has apparently gotten rid of anyone who says anything about getting Bush out of office. Howard said that he did say something about anal sex on the air last Tuesday but that's not why he was thrown off the air. He said that the FCC had nothing on him then.
Howard said that FCC now wants to force Viacom to get rid of Howard to level the playing field in the markets that Clear Channel and Viacom compete. He said that he said he thinks that he's done now because of this. He suggested that the caller quit his job today so he can stay home and listen to the show today. The caller lives in an area where he can't hear the show though.
Howard talked about the fire fighters that he met during the fire scare last night. He said that some of the guys looked like they'd just stepped out of a magazine or something. One guy asked Howard to shoot a picture with him so he had to do it. He had been getting ready for bed so he wasn't looking his best at the time. He said that it's so hard being ugly and this morning he was telling his hair stylist to put his hair in his face to cover it up. He said she wanted to show more of his face but that's not the way he wants it.
Howard took a call from a guy claiming to be a fire fighter. He was saying that Howard could never be a fireman because he couldn't even carry his dog up a few flights of stairs. Howard didn't believe he was a fire fighter and they ended up arguing about whether or not the guy was a fireman. Howard asked him a bunch of questions trying to figure out if he was lying but it all became a joke so Howard hung up on the guy.
Robin said that Mr. X once ran into a burning building to make sure people got out in time. She said she just stayed out on the street because she's not that brave. Howard said that if that's the case, she can't be having good sex with him because he must be really bored to run into a burning building. Howard said that he likes Mr. X but he's not that brave because he's still known as ''Mr. X.'' Howard said he didn't like Robin's other boyfriend, Warren, because he'd always bring a video camera to events that they went to. Howard said the guy was a nice guy but he was glad when Robin dumped him. Robin also said that the guy had a pretty large package so they spent a minute talking about that.
Robin told Howard that she went to see the premiere of The Sopranos last night and Mr. X actually let someone photograph him. She said that the they saw the first two episodes at this premiere and they were really good. Howard said that he has to get to a lot more stuff this morning but he has to take a break. He first goofed on Ryan Seacrest about his new sign off that he does at the end of American Idol. He said that he says ''Seacrest out...'' as the sign off. Howard said he must use that on his TV show and on his radio show as well. Howard told Robin that he and Beth were goofing on Seacrest after seeing that. He said Beth could use it if she had her own show. She could say ''O Out'' or as Robin suggested ''O-Ver and Out.'' Howard could use ''Stern Off'' if he gets kicked off the air. Robin suggested doing a ''Stern In'' when he starts the show as well. Howard had to take a break right after that.
Howard said he did some research on Clear Channel and their ties to George W. Bush. He said that he found out stuff about this guy Tom Hicks from Clear Channel and how they've had a lot to do with defending Bush. They banned the Dixie Chicks albums from all of their stations after they spoke out against Bush. There were other things that Howard read about the company. He had an article about how they hired this guy Michael Savage after he called a caller a Sodomite and hoped that he'd get AIDS and die. They had no problem hiring him for some reason.
Howard read another article (by Maureen Farrell) about how much power he has and how Bush could lose the election after all of this stuff. Howard read that he had spoken out against Bush just 4 days before Clear Channel took him off the air. The reporter pointed out some of the stuff that Clear Channel has done over the years censoring people who speak out against Bush and all of that. Howard said he hates saying stuff like that because it sounds crazy. Howard read a couple of other things that show that Clear Channel just boots people from their company if they speak out against Bush.
Howard continued to read stories about Clear Channel and what other people are saying about the whole thing. Howard also pointed out that the FCC is run by Colin Powell's son and Clear Channel is tied to Bush. Howard said that he's heard that there is a case being prepared against him to get him kicked off of all of the Viacom stations. He said it's in the works so his days are numbered. Howard spoke out against Bush even more and said that this is the scariest thing ever and Bush has to be voted out of office. He said that even though we're still hearing the show now, it's just a matter of weeks before the FCC comes up with a list of things he's said that will force his company to fire him.
Howard said he had a lot more to read about this whole thing. He pointed out that John Kerry isn't saying anything in his favor either but it's better him than Bush. He said he didn't want to bore people with all of this stuff but it's really pissing him off. He said that he's going down in flames and he wants people to know why that is. Robin wondered if the press is going to pick up on this stuff and let people know. Howard said they'll just ignore it and laugh when they bring the story up in the news.
Howard read more of the article and said that he's pretty sure that he's done. He spoke to Tom last night and he was taking tapes out of his office because they know that there's a case being prepared against him. Howard said he doesn't know what Michael Powell has done in his career to have gotten to where he is. He said that he knows that it's over for him as a broadcaster. He said all they have to do is fine them and they're done. He said that he knows that if his company even tries to take them to court, they'll take their licenses away. There's no way for them to win.
A listener called in and said that he used to work for Clear Channel and spoke out against Bush after the election and they eventually fired him and black listed him in every market. Howard said he would have called him crazy years ago but now he knows better. Howard said he hopes that John Kerry can continue and fight the good fight. He said he hopes he can win because that's his only hope. Howard said he can't believe that he can't change his opinion about who he wants to vote for without getting kicked off the air.
Howard pointed out that Clear Channel has a zero tolerance policy about indecent broadcasting but they didn't do anything to Ryan Seacrest after the F-word and the S-word made it on the air the other day. Howard continued to say that his days are numbered and he's a dead man walking. He said there are people getting away with stuff that he could never say on the air but that's because they don't have as much of an audience as he does. The caller he had said that the fans have to do something about this. Howard and Robin told the guy that they won't be able to do anything once they're taken off the air.
Howard pointed out that all of these reporters out there are making a joke about this whole thing. They laugh about it when they bring it up in the news and it's no joke. The caller Howard had on said that he had to quit the business after he got kicked off the air. He said that he ended up inventing a hot pepper nasal spray to get rid of migraines and cluster headaches. Howard said that they had something in common, he invented a nuclear reactor out of tin foil and breast implants out of rice. The caller got in a plug for his spray which is called Sinus Buster and it's available at SinusBuster.com. Howard went to break right after that.
Howard went on to goof on Ryan Seacrest and his ''Seacrest out'' sign off. Robin said that they have to talk to him about that. She said she hasn't been watching the end of ''American Idol'' so she wasn't sure if he's been doing that for a long time or if it's new. Howard played a little history of his slogans. He started off with some ''Seacrest here'' sayings and it led up to ''Seacrest out.'' Robin said that he'll probably go to one name, Seacrest, and he'll be ''Seacrest in'' and ''Seacrest out'' in his shows. Robin doesn't want Howard to buy into that and start calling him just Seacrest. Howard said that guy is slick. He goofed on him for a couple more minutes about the whole thing. He said it's scary that they're in the land of the bland Ryan Seacrest and Jay Leno.
Howard went on to talk about these Passion Plays that the Nazis used to put on to subtly bash the Jews. He said that this is what Mel Gibson has done with his ''The Passion of the Christ.'' He has produced a modern day passion play because of the warped logic of his father. That led to Howard playing tape of the lame Jay Leno interviewing Mel about his movie and not even mentioning that it's an anti-semitic movie. Howard said that Jay told him it was a good film and he's proud that he stands by his convictions. He thanked him for having the courage to make the movie. Howard had more audio from that interview so he played it and complained about how Leno will suck up to anyone famous.
Leno just couldn't ask Gibson about the movie being anti-semitic. He skirted around the subject and tried to get Mel to talk about why people were bashing the movie before it ever came out. Howard said that Jay is the biggest pussy on two feet. He went off on him for a couple of minutes after that. Howard said he wanted to throw up on his TV when he saw it.
A listener called in and told Howard that he has to cool down on Bush. He said that there's no proof that Bush ever used cocaine. Howard said that when they ask him about it he doesn't answer the question so it's possible that he has used drugs. He said if he never used the stuff, he would just say that he hasn't. Howard told the caller that he thinks that anyone is better than Bush at this point. He told the guy that his show is already finished because of Bush and anyone else would be better in office than him. Howard talked about how Bush is against gay marriage because they can't procreate. He said that if that's the case then why did they let Liza Minelli and David Gest get married. Howard ended up yelling about how much power he has and how he can swing a vote and this is the reason they're going to try and get him off the air. He has no power against this whole thing.
Howard said that there was a judge up in New Paultz, New York who was arrested after marrying off 19 gay couples. Howard said that the judge who gave Liza Minelli and David Gest a marriage license should be arrested as well. Howard ended up calling the phone caller an idiot and hung up on him after he suggested that Howard use his own money to make a movie of his own.
Howard said he's sick of talking about this stuff and people should just understand it. He changed subjects a short time later and said that they've apparently found evidence of water on Mars. Howard read about it and saw that there is no water there now, they've found salt left over by water that was there. Howard wondered why there's no water there now if it used to have water. He said the only reason they're saying this stuff is so they have a reason to fly there some day. Howard talked about what a nightmare it's going to be for astronauts to get to Mars and what a waste of time and money it is. He said that they should be using the money to clean the water in New York City. He went to another commercial break after that.
Howard had tape of Gary Garver at the Night of A Hundred Stars which is some kind of Oscar party. He said that he was invited to an Oscar party himself but ended up backing out of it. He and Robin talked about that for a couple of minutes and then got to the tape.
Howard said that Garver found Gary Busey. Howard said they told him to ask everyone about what's going on in Haiti. Garver first asked Busey about filmmakers who are making movies in Canada. Busey talked about that for a minute and then Garver asked him if he's for the President's plan to ban gay marriage. Busey didn't want to get into that. Garver asked Busey what was going on in Haiti and Busey just said there was a war going on there. He didn't want to talk about it anymore than that. He said he doesn't want to talk about politics so Garver asked him who has the best ass in Hollywood. Busey walked away after Garver asked him if he thought the President was a draft dodger.
Howard said that Busey is a funny guy. He didn't sound like he was for gay marriage though. He said that Garver ran into a few other celebs like Lou Ferrigno and Sid Caesar. He wasn't going to play those but had to play the Sid Caesar interview. Garver asked him if there are too many award shows. Sid, who sounds 100 years old, tried to answer Garver's questions. Garver threw in a few other questions about Mel Gibson's movie, actresses who have the best ass and stuff like that. Sid told him to pick it out himself. Garver asked Sid what he thinks of Howard and his situation. Sid said that free speech has to stay around and that was about it.
Howard laughed as he said ''I can't believe he's gone.'' Dees played clips of himself doing good things for his fans and talking about big news stories. Howard said all he knows is that there's an awful lot of Enya in that bit. Gary had Howard keep playing the stuff because Dees plays his son reading a poem for his father on the air. Howard said that the kid sounds like he's 40. He also said that if Rick cared about the fans, then why didn't he ever do anything funny? After hearing Dees' son reading that crap he said that he felt like ''gaying off.'' He wondered what planet Dees grew up on.
Gary said he heard that the son knew that Howard wasn't going to be into the whole dinner thing. Howard said it wasn't that bad and he had some fun there. Gary went on to tell Howard that the NFL gives each of the teams a certain number of shirts that are known as ''Locker Room Jerseys'' and there are only 7 that don't go to team members. Howard said that he didn't know how to tell people what it is. He said he actually threw it out already. He said he actually doesn't know where it is. Robin said it's probably in storage somewhere. Gary told him that if he put it on eBay.com he could get something like $10,000. Howard said he doesn't think he'd get more than $400 for it. It's got his name on it and it's an official Super Bowl shirt.
Howard took a call from a guy who claimed to be Dr. Michael Gray. He told Howard about the stuff he was talking about earlier about the trip to Mars and the moon. The guy was trying to explain it to Howard but he didn't like the way he was talking to him so he hung up on him.
Howard read an article he saw about his show. The writer defended his right to be on the air and how many celebrities have consented to be on his show. The article appeared in the Buffalo News. Howard had Fred play some sad music to go with some letters he had to read.
Howard said that they could forget about Ralph Nader for President because he hates them. Howard went on to read a letter from someone who lost the show in their area. The writer said that they're being deployed to Iraq where they're fighting for the freedoms we have here and yet Howard is being taken off the air. Howard had the sad music playing in the background as he read the letter. He went on to play the Rick Dees tape a little bit until KC came in with his lunch. KC told Howard that his lunch was there and said ''Armstrong Out'' which was a reference to the Ryan Seacrest thing they were goofing on earlier. Howard had to take a break so he could eat his lunch.
Robin said that there's no way he'd go for that. Howard played the tape and Jeff said ''No way!'' and said he'd rather go to court. KC then asked him if he'd give up his bad arm to get out of the lawsuit. Howard and Robin both said that Jeff wouldn't go for that either. Howard played the tape and Jeff said he actually would give up that bad arm. Next up was a sex change. Jeff said no way to that one as well. Jail for 6 months? Jeff said yes. Not drink for a year? Jeff had a hard time deciding on that one. He said he would if he had to. Howard didn't think he'd be able to do that. KC asked him if he'd be an undercover prostitute. Jeff said no to that as well. He said he would go undercover to find drug rings in New York City.
Howard said that it was a dumb game and asked KC if he could spell ''Intellectual Property.'' That was a better game. KC tried to spell it out on a piece of paper. He spelled it ''INTELLECTUAL'' and got it right. He spelled property correctly as well. That seemed to surprise the guys. Howard asked him to spell definitely. He got it wrong when he spelled it ''DEFINATELY.'' Howard asked him to spell scissors. He spelled it ''SCIZZORS.'' KC said he never claimed to be a good speller.
Howard took some other phone calls and people are saying that the show is still staying interesting even with all of this crap going on. A listener from the Syracuse area called in and said he has pulled advertising from the Clear Channel station he has been advertising on. Howard said that's something he can get behind. He went on to say that he had a little bit of Clear Channel stock and his financial guy sold it off for him because their company was saying that it might be a good idea to drop it because of what's been going on lately. Howard said his broker unloaded what he had as well. Howard said he only had a few shares, nothing that would blow their minds.
The caller asked Howard about the uncensored E! show DVD that he was supposed to come out with. Howard said that he put that on the back burner and he has to talk about it with Robin Radzinski. He's working on a bunch of other stuff on the side like his cartoon for Spike TV and the Robert Schimmel show. Then he's on the phone with Tom screaming his brains out every night.
The caller also told Howard that he made plans to go to Las Vegas the week he was going to be there in April, then Howard changed the dates. Howard said they screwed him around there at the station and changed the dates. They changed it to the second week in May after changing it to the first week in May. Howard said he doesn't even know if he'll still be on the air then though.
A listener called in and said that there's a site out there with a petition to get him back on the air. Howard said he saw one site that had 53 signatures which depressed him. The caller said that this site has about 4000.
This guy who accidentally broke a chick's neck called back in and said that he couldn't believe that some of what they censored out of his conversation. That led to Howard talking about how Tom has been censoring out ridiculous stuff lately because of what's going on. Howard said that he bleeped something the other day that was not even close to being dirty. He read what Tom bleeped yesterday. He was talking about being with Mancow's father and Tom didn't like the line ''I broke his hip in two places.'' That's ridiculous but Tom said it was context that it was presented in.
Howard asked Tom how long he really thinks they have left on the air. Tom said he thinks that they will be on the air through the remainder of his current contract which is about 22 months. Howard can't believe that and thinks he'll be off before the Las Vegas shows in May. The guys ended up talking about some other DJs and what they're doing. They were talking about this guy The Greaseman who is apparently paying a radio station to be on the air himself. Howard said if he gets fired, he has plans. He said that he will destroy everything that he has created.
The caller who broke his date's neck got back to his story. He said she told him that she was 27 years old, she turned out to be 17. He said that he's in a detention center right now and he's waiting to be transferred somewhere else. The guy told Howard the story again and how he's still claiming that his hand got stuck in this girls hair and when she pushed off the bed he couldn't let go and broke her neck. Howard and Robin didn't believe his story so Howard hung up on him.
Howard told Nick that it was sickening to him that Bush wasn't truthful about avoiding the Vietnam war. He said that there were a bunch of other things that turned him off to the guy. Nick has his own issues and thinks that things have gotten a little too liberal lately so he can't be against Bush completely.
Howard took a phone call from a guy who said that he has stopped advertising on Clear Channel stations because of what they did to Howard. Howard let the guy get in a plug for his bar down in Florida. It's called Tailgater's Sport Bar and Grill. He gave him some free advertising for that.
Howard gave Nick a couple of plugs for his gig at Carolines through Sunday. Nick's web site is at NickDip.com. Nick told Howard that he ended up getting there late because he got into an argument with his driver about Howard on his way there. He said they were arguing so much that they ended up missing their exit and got there an hour and a half late. Howard had to take a break after that quick discussion. Nick stuck around during Robin's news.
Howard had his new slogan ready today. He said it's simply ''Stern IN!'' just like Ryan Seacrest's ''Seacrest OUT!'' that he was playing on the show yesterday. He and the guys goofed around with that for a couple of minutes. He decided to do roll call where each of the guys had to say their name and say that they were present as a goof.
Howard said that the weather in New York has been really nice lately. He said he doesn't know how that happened. He went on to talk about President Bush and how he's got his campaign commercials running now and he's using images of 9/11 to promote that. Howard joked that Bush is coming out with an ''I Survived 9/11'' t-shirt.
Howard took a phone call from a guy who asked Howard who he's going to vote for if he doesn't vote for Bush. Howard said it's Kerry, not Nader because Nader hates him as well. Howard said that Bush didn't win the election the last time either, he cheated to win. Howard said the election was a joke and you'd think that we lived in a third world country.
Howard played KKK member Daniel Carver's latest voice mail message where he talked about Mel Gibson's movie ''The Passion of the Christ'' and how correct it was. Daniel went off on the Jews and then moved on to the Mexicans after that and bad mouthed them for a short time. Daniel said he can't wait to see the movie. Howard said that Mel Gibson did a good job of finding like minded people with that movie of his.
Howard took a call who wanted to know why he was going off on Bush so much. Howard ended up telling the guy about Bush using the images of 9/11 to help with his election campaign and how tacky that is. He said that if he put out a commercial for his show using his 9/11 broadcast, people would go nuts.
Crazy Cabbie called in and said that Bush using those images is no better than the fire fighter who stole stuff from the World Trade Center site while he was helping out there. He and Howard spent a few seconds on that subject.
Howard said that he read some disturbing stuff about Clear Channel. He said that they own most of the big places where music acts perform. He said that they own about 70 percent of the venues in this country. When a band goes out and tours, they've locked up every place. He said that he read that a local guy in Philadelphia tried to open his own place with like 100 seats and Clear Channel came in and had him shut down. Howard said that Pearl Jam wanted to go out and book their own gigs but it doesn't work because Clear Channel controls it. The Dixie Chicks aren't being seen anywhere because Clear Channel banned them and won't let them play at any of their venues. Howard and Gary talked about how this is all because the FCC allows Clear Channel to buy as many radio stations as they want to. Gary also pointed out that their company, Viacom, doesn't do anything like this. Howard said that's because the guy at the top, Mel Karmazin, doesn't conduct business like that.
A phone caller asked Howard if he thinks Mel Karmazin would back him up if he was fined by the FCC. Howard said he doesn't think that Mel can back him up. He said he thinks that they'd have to get rid of him because they won't be able to afford to defend him. He said the government is already building a case against him and his days are numbered. Howard told the guy how the FCC fined him about 10 years ago and they were going to go to court to defend themselves but the FCC just put a stop on all of their paperwork for licensing and buried it. They ended up paying the FCC off so that they could get back to business. Howard said that the company folds because they can't deal with a hostile government. They never got the chance to go to court over the stuff they were going to be fined for. Howard said the FCC just refuses to process licenses and stuff like that when they're challenged on that stuff.
Howard said he went on the FCC web site last night and went to Michael Powell's personal page (Here). He had pictures of himself with all of his celebrity meetings. He said that it's like a 16 year old's blog. There's a picture of him with Sponge Bob Square Pants and some other celebrities and the tax payers are paying for that crap. He said the next thing you know there will be a Bobble Head of Michael Powell. Howard said that he's probably going to brag about putting a stop to free speech right next to his picture of Sponge Bob. Howard complained about all of that crap for a couple of minutes and then took a break.
Howard said he got a call from Judith Regan who wants him to write a book while all of this crap is going on. He said she told him it would be easy. He talked about how much he loves Judith even if her staff hates her. He said he has too many other things going on right now and doesn't have time to write a book. He said he could just write on every page that the FCC sucks.
Howard said people are coming to his defense and Jimmy Kimmel was the latest one. He wondered why that didn't make the news. He played a clip of Jimmy talking about the indecency fines that might be coming soon. They've raised the fines from $27,000 to $500,000. Jimmy talked about how ridiculous it is that just one letter from one person can lead to one of these $500,000 fines. Howard said he wasn't even aware that the fines were raised to that amount.
Howard talked about how dumb it is to have a fine that high. He said that there should be a way to take the FCC to court when they want to fine them for something ridiculous like that. He talked about how the FCC would just stop answering their phones and returning messages. He retold the story of how his boss had to go through that with them years ago. Howard said that as soon as that new fine amount is approve, he will be fined and kicked off the radio. He said he'll never get his day in court either. He said they just screw with you and it's all legal.
Howard said that he got a note from his agent who said that Ashleigh Banfield wants to interview him. He said that he might have to do that because she's hot. He read a note from her where she says she doesn't just want to ask him about his recent Clear Channel stuff.
Howard moved on to some other stuff and said that John Kerry got a call from President Bush the other day to congratulate him on taking the democratic nomination thing but Kerry was reluctant to take the call because he thought that it might be a Howard Stern fan making a prank call to him.
Howard played a phone call that Benjy made to a talk show. Benjy called in to talk about who he voted for. He told the woman he was talking to he was voting for the guy with the biggest (something censored). He called another guy and talked about someone he knew was his teacher and then told the guy that he heard he had big testicles. Howard thought the calls were pretty funny.
A listener called in and asked Howard how he felt being the Lenny Bruce of 2004. Howard said he never found Lenny that funny. He went on to talk about how he has an outlet bigger than Lenny did as well. He said he still doesn't think the media gets what's actually going on either. He said that everyone is missing the point of what can actually happen. He said that Jimmy Kimmel seemed to get it but a lot of the other media outlets out there just think it's a joke. He talked to the caller about how they can still be taken off the air and how he can't go on the internet because it's not fair to the stations that broadcast his show now.
Howard took some other phone calls and ended up saying that Mel Gibson is getting treated better than he is and he just created a hate filled movie. Howard and the caller ended up talking about the politics behind all of this nonsense. Howard also said that he got an e-mail from a fan who asked where all of the politicians are who Howard has backed in the past like Arnold Schwarzenegger and Christie Todd Whitman. Howard said that Whitman was on Bill Maher's show the other day and she wasn't really getting behind him like she should have.
Howard said he was already getting phone calls about how he was talking too much about that nonsense. Robin said that's great because the callers wouldn't be able to hear him much longer on the air anyway. Howard told the caller that he did have a naked chick coming in later in the show. While he was talking about that stuff the delay was hit for some reason.
Howard said he and his buddy Pat saw a woman out on the street who looked exactly like Robin. He said she had the same hair style and sunglasses. He said they went up to say hi to her and she looked at them like they were nuts. Howard told Robin about that for a minute and then took a commercial break.
Howard played a commercial parody about Mel Gibson's latest movie ''The Jew Hating Movie'' starring his anti-Semitic father, Hutton Gibson. Howard said the heard that Jay Leno will probably have him on the air soon to congratulate him on his convictions like he did with Mel.
A listener called in and told Howard that Clear Channel has the right to change and take him off the air if they want to. Howard said he feels the same way but that company isn't changing their ways, they still have controversial people working for them but those people back Bush so they keep them on. Howard said that company was trying to hire other controversial DJs not that long ago and now that the government is getting strict, Clear Channel is changing their tune. Howard said the government decided to change their minds for them.
Howard read about a woman who was fired from Clear Channel after she opposed the Iraq war and didn't want to participate in pro-war rallies. Another guy was let go from his position after he bashed Bush as well. Howard said he didn't want to stay on this subject but the callers kept him on it.
Howard read about some other people who were kept from Clear Channel venues because of their political views. Howard said it's obvious that he's a ''dead man walking.'' He said he really doesn't want to keep talking about this stuff this morning but everyone brings it up. A woman called in and wondered how people can ignore how evil the government is. Another caller said that the FCC will eventually regulate satellite radio as well so that won't work for Howard either. Howard said that Clear Channel owns 30 percent of XM radio so he won't be going there.
Howard played an old The Onion Radio News bit where they talk about a child who is starting to look like his ugly parents. He asked Robin what she wanted to hear about. He had e-mail and other stuff. Robin wanted to hear the e-mail so Howard read about some of the mail they got about the Jeff the Drunk ''Stuck On You'' special. People liked that whole thing and talked about how crazy some of that was. Howard also read an e-mail from a woman who pointed out that the Bush administration is okay with parents protecting their kids from guns but not a radio.
Another writer told Howard that he's starting to sound as unfunny as Lenny Bruce toward the end and he should just get over it and bang Beth more. Howard said that's what he did last night. Howard read a few other e-mails. One guy complained about Howard saying that it's okay to be gay. Someone else pointed out what hypocrites the Clear Channel people are because they hold concerts that have R-rated material in them. Howard had to take another break shortly after that.
A listener called in crying about the fact that Howard might be taken off the air. The guy said that he just lost his job 2 weeks ago and everything is falling apart on him now. Howard told the guy to get a grip and moved on to the lame Rick Dees stuff he played during yesterday's show. He played a couple of seconds of that before a phone caller asked him about something else.
The caller wondered if Howard was jealous of Jay Leno or something. Howard told the guy that he's no jealous of Jay. He told a story about how Rupert Murdoch came to him years ago when Joan Rivers' show wasn't doing all that well against Johnny Carson's ''Tonight Show.'' He said he thought about it and didn't know if it was for him. Howard said he was asked to check out Joan's show in person to see if he'd be into something like that. He said he didn't want to take his career and throw that in the garbage to interview farmers and their huge pumpkins like Joan was doing. Howard said he sat there watching Joan's show and Richard Simmons came on stage. He then decided, as Richard Simmons had the audience doing jumping jacks, that he couldn't abandon everything he believed in to do a late night TV show. He said he turned to them and said he just couldn't do it and he'd stay where he was on radio. He said that the late night thing is something he's stood against his whole career. He pointed out how lame Jay Leno was interviewing Mel Gibson and how he didn't confront him about the anti-Semitic stuff in the movie.
Howard asked her if she's had a lot of guys. She said that she started back when she was 15 when she was really flat and has had a lot of guys. Howard said he had a ''key for her ignition'' and he'd like to put it in. Fred played some car starting sound effects as he was talking about that.
Rita told Howard that she is the manager at a Blockbuster in New Milford (CT?). Howard said he really couldn't believe the body she had for a 19 year old. Rita said that she wants to be a financial planner some day. Howard asked her what she'd do with his money if he gave her some right now. Rita said she'd probably take it and run right now because she's not prepared to do anything at this point.
Howard asked Rita to do some queefing (vaginal farting) for them. She immediately let some rip. They may have been the best sounding queefs ever. Howard then played some Enya music and had Rita queef along to that. She was able to control it pretty well and played along with it. KC told Howard that Rita is kind of ''injured'' right now so she can't perform as well as usual. She said she's on her period so it wasn't the best time to do this stuff. Howard asked her to come back some time to do it again.
Howard found out that Rita got something like a 1500 on her SATs. He said that she's smart and beautiful. He asked her some questions about who she's slept with in her life. She said she's been with quite a few guys for a 19 year old.
A listener called in and asked Howard how her feet were. She didn't want to show her feet because she hadn't had her feet done lately. Gary came in a short time later and said they had $500 for her if she wouldn't do it otherwise. She took her shoe off within a minute so they could check it out. Howard said they didn't look that bad.
Gary said that the guys in the back room didn't believe that she could have gotten a 1500 on her SAT. Gary asked her what the square root of 81 was. She knew it was 9. She also knew what a Rhombus was and how many sides were on it. The guys seemed to be surprised that she could answer them. Gary had a real SAT test question that even he didn't understand. Rita said that she could answer it if it was in front of her. She read it and the guys had a hard time figuring it out. She knew the right answer though.
Howard told Rita she could get going and let her get in a plug for SandBarUSA.com. She left shortly after that. Howard said it's amazing to see a 19 year old with that body. He had to take a break right after that.
Ronnie the Limo Driver came in to talk about the opening since he's always down at the club. Ronnie said that the new place is about the same size as the other place but it's long instead of square. He said they have a mezzanine level so VIPs can sit up top and look down on everyone else. Ronnie told Howard that they're going to have stereos in the rooms so you can pick your own music. Howard said it's a real man's place to go. They have great food there as well as the strippers.
Howard and Ronnie talked about ''The Doctor'' who helps guys out in the bathroom to get rid of the glitter, perfume and any other evidence you have on you when you're leaving the place. Howard said they should have showers there so guys can clean up before leaving. He also suggested having a locker room so you could change and get into a jump suit or something for the lap dances. Ronnie left shortly after that discussion.
Howard took a call from a guy who said that Clear Channel is still using commercials that he reads up in Rochester even though they took the radio show off the air. Howard and the caller spent a short time discussing that before Snoop came in.
Howard said Bill O'Reilly was supposed to have Snoop on his show but Snoop backed out of it. Howard went on to talk about how O'Reilly tells him on the phone that he owes a lot to Howard but then he went on the air the other night and didn't defend him in this whole Clear Channel thing. He said he'd play tape of that later in the show.
Howard had the guys bring in Snoop (SnoopDogg.com) a short time later. He came in with Don Magic Juan and Snoops uncle. Howard said that his uncle was the guy who got Snoop into pimping. Howard spent a short time talking to Don about smoking through his nose. Don said that he likes the smell so that's why he does it that way. Howard asked Snoop if it's true that he's back to smoking pot. Snoop said he's not but he likes to be around it. Howard figures he likes the contact high.
Snoop said that he's playing Huggy Bear in the new ''Starsky and Hutch'' movie. Howard asked him if he was good in it so Snoop told him he has to go see it himself. Robin wondered if he's going to get an Academy Award for his performance. Snoop said they ain't gonna give a ''nigga like me'' an award.
Howard asked Snoop about some of the people that were with him this morning. He said that one of the white chicks that was with him was his stylist. Snoop said he doesn't bang her though. He said he doesn't mix business with pleasure. Howard talked to Snoop's Uncle June Bug and the guys about a bunch of stuff.
Howard asked Snoop when he started with his own stable of hoes. Snoop said that he was about 18 and he started out with about 2 women. All of the guys were talking about their pimping and how that all works for them. They told Howard about what some of the rules are when you're a pimp.
Snoop said that they were just down in Brazil recently and most of the women down there are hoes. Howard got back to the entourage that Snoop had with him out in the hall. Howard said that he got an e-mail from Bill O'Reilly's people who were upset that Snoop backed out of their show. Snoop told Howard that it's just not his type of show and he didn't want to do be in an environment like that if he didn't have to be.
Howard had tape of O'Reilly talking about Snoop backing out of doing his show. He said that it seemed that Snoop was hiding after backing out of the show but Howard said that O'Reilly would be the one hiding if he went to Snoop's house to do the interview. Howard and Snoop talked about that for a minute but Snoop wanted to move on to other stuff.
Howard and Robin asked Snoop about his new video series ''Black Girls gone Buck Wild'' that's with the Playboy people. Snoop said that the guy at Girls Gone Wild didn't want to have Latino and Black girls in his videos so he went out on his own to put out that stuff.
Howard talked to Uncle June Bug more about his hoes and what kind of money they can bring in. Uncle June Bug said that the girls make as much money as he tells the girls to make. He said that he wants them to make him about $2,000 a day out there. He said if they don't bring back that much then they aren't doing anything out there.
Howard asked the guys how old their oldest hoes are out there. Snoop said he's got a 41 year old and Don has a 54 year old. Uncle June Bug said that his oldest is 102.
Howard and Snoop talked to Snoop about the ''Starsky and Hutch'' movie for a few minutes. Don said that he shot a scene with Carmen Electra and Amy Smart but he didn't have sex with them. Uncle June Bug thought that it was pretty amazing that his nephew has gotten to where he is.
Robin asked Snoop what's up with his black super hero movie he wants to do. Snoop said it would be called ''Super Nigga'' and he wanted Adam Sandler to write it for him. He's busy with other stuff right now though. Snoop told Howard about some of his ideas for the movie but the delay got hit for some reason.
Howard wrapped up the segment shortly after that. Snoop said that he always makes a point of doing Howard's show because it's real and people always tell him they've seen him on his show out on the streets. Don Magic Juan led the group in a prayer against the FCC as they were wrapping up. Fred played some church music and Howard did some preaching of his own. Howard then wished Snoop luck with the new movie ''Starsky and Hutch.'' Snoop said that the movie opens tomorrow.
Howard asked Don about his jewel encrusted cup and what he was drinking from it. He said that he had Champagne in there. Howard wanted to know what a cup like that costs but Don didn't want to say. Howard was going to end the interview but had a few things to say about how he was being treated like a black man with the whole Clear Channel and FCC thing. He went to commercial break shortly after that.
A woman called in late in the news and said she'd like to come in and cook for him while she's naked. Howard thought that would be disgusting but said that he might want to check her out naked. He put her on hold so the guys could set her up to come in.
Wendy the Retard called in a little while later and told Howard that she had a dream about them having a baby together. Wendy also told Howard that she's in love with him. She said that she's not that upset about losing him because she's been having great dreams about him. Wendy said that she's been listening to the Monsters of the Midday instead of Howard since he's not on the station down there anymore. Howard wanted to hear what was on right then so Wendy put the radio up to the phone so he could hear it. There was a lot of static though so it was hard to hear. Howard wondered if she listened to his show with all of that static. She said she did and then gave Howard the run down for the whole station and who is on after that.
Howard asked Wendy if John Hogan of Clear Channel radio raped her. Wendy said he did and George Bush was in the room with him when he did that. Wendy said ''yes'' to every question Howard asked her though. Wendy ended up asking for some money to help out with the groceries in the house. Gary came through with $500 courtesy of Bally Total Fitness. Howard asked Wendy why they don't just kill their dog and eat that. Wendy said that they don't have anything to kill it with and she's tried. Howard put Wendy on hold so she could listen to the rest of the show since it's not on down in Florida.
Howard said that Brian Phelan from E! had a really sad story about his dog. He said that it really bummed him out when he heard about it. Brian came in and said that they had a 7 year old dog that was hit by a car. Howard said that the dog tried to drag itself back into the house with it's two front legs even though it's back was broken. Brian brought the dog to the vet and they couldn't do anything so they decided to put it down. Brian said that his two year old was looking for the dog and he had to tell him that the dog went to heaven. Robin got upset that Howard didn't get that upset about her cat dying. Howard wondered why she was making it about her. She said that she was affected by her cat dying but Howard didn't care. Brian said the dog was great with the kid and he really misses it. He said he wasn't sure if it was the right time to get another dog yet. Brian said ''I miss you Cheers'' as he was talking about it. The person who hit the dog didn't stop so it was a hit and run. Brian said the dog wasn't crying, she just looked like she was in shock. He said he thought she just broke a leg. Then they took an x-ray of her and found out that her back was broken. He said he spent about 5 minutes petting the dog before he had to go. Robin bragged that she stayed with her cat when she had to have him put down.
Robin was still upset that Howard didn't pay this much attention to her cat when it died. Howard couldn't believe that she was acting like that. Howard wondered if it was Robin that hit the dog. Howard spent a little while longer with Brian just to irritate Robin even more. Howard had Robin finish up her news after that.
Howard started off the show asking KC if he and Ralph played a game where they were touching each other's packages. Howard said it was unbelievable. He said he heard that they played ''Bag Tag'' where you smack the other guy in the nuts. KC apparently told this to Ralph and Ralph smacked KC in the nuts. Howard heard that KC got pissed and ended up playing the game with him. Robin thought that sounded like KC was coming on to Ralph bringing that game up. Howard said that he was with KC yesterday and KC couldn't get over the fact that Ralph touched him. Ralph told Howard that KC was doubled over in pain after he whacked him.
KC told Howard that Ralph hit him with his finger really hard. He didn't know that he was going to hit him in the nuts after telling him about the game. KC said he wants to see Ralph again so he can get back at him and either hit him or someone else. Howard told KC that if he hits his bag, he's going to take him out in an alley and have him beat up. Howard told KC that he should wait until Ralph is taking his pants off and then hit him. Howard said that all of this stuff is gay and the two of them are acting really gay. Robin wondered when KC is going to be having his gay marriage.
Howard said that KC is obsessed with that right now. KC didn't think it was gay to play that game though. Ralph called in and said that after KC told him about the game he saw KC sitting there with his legs open and had to just hit him. Ralph said that it was right there and KC told him it was a fun game so he took his shot. KC asked Ralph if he liked it. Ralph laughed and said that it was funny. KC told him he just did it too hard, it was a violent hit.
Howard took a phone call from a guy who wanted KC to explain Gay Chicken to Howard. Howard already knew about it because he's had the guys play. KC played against Scott DePace for an XBox one time. KC said if he was to play again, he'd just grab Scott's sack. He ended up losing the last time. One guy called in and said he'd rather hear about the FCC than KC's gay behavior.
Howard took a call from a guy who said that Bag Tag isn't gay. Hitting another guy in the balls is funny. Another guy said that he used to do it as a kid so it's not gay. He said that when you're a full grown man though, it's kind of gay. Ralph said that he's going to wear a cup from now on to protect himself.
Howard did his new ritual of calling roll in the morning. He asked each of the guys if they were there and they all said ''present.'' Howard then did his own goof on Ryan Seacrest and said ''Stern IN!'' He went to commercial break right after that.
Shuli told Howard that last night on E! they had video of Artie eating a donut in the corner of the studio. That led to Howard talking about how he's worried about Artie because he's out in Colorado at a comedy festival and they haven't heard from him. He talked about how the altitude could affect him out there because he's a heavy drinker.
Shuli asked Howard who he thinks benefited the most by going to a therapist. He said that Gary went for a while and so did Fred and Robin. He said he would have said Robin but after her reaction to the death of Brian's dog yesterday, he doesn't feel that way. That led to Howard talking to Robin about that whole thing and how nutty she sounded.
Howard said he heard that Robin is up for her own talk show but Robin didn't seem to know what he was talking about. Shuli changed subjects after that and asked Howard about his mother's thoughts on therapy. Howard said his parent's don't know him as well as they think they do and his mother doesn't think the therapy is needed. He said she doesn't think that all of the stuff that he claims happened to him ever really happened. She said that if she did such a bad job raising him, he wouldn't be doing as successful as he is.
Shuli said that Howard once told his mother on the air that therapy was very good for him. Her response was ''What do you know?'' Howard continued to talk about how she really doesn't think that he's as messed up as he thinks he is. Robin was laughing as Howard was talking about all of this. Howard did his impression of his mother telling him all of the stuff that he should do in his life.
Howard wanted to wrap up the call with Shuli. Shuli got in a plug for his web site RenegadeComedy.com and also found out that he's in the running for Stuttering John's job. Howard ended up telling everyone that it depends on if they're even on the radio in the future. He said he has some bad news later on in the morning about that stuff.
Mike Walker said that this Congressman from Oklahoma said the other day that a vote against George Bush is like a win for Osama bin Laden. He and Howard talked about how disturbing that is for a minute and then played the Gossip Game. Howard said that he thinks that next week will be his last week of shows on his station. He's not joking about that either. He said that the information he gives us later in the show will show that he's not joking about this stuff. He said he's going to tell us things that will chill us. He moved on to the game a short time after that. Here's how it goes... Each week Mike Walker calls in with four gossip stories. Three of the stories are from his National Enquirer gossip column. One of the stories is false. Everyone tries to pick out the false story. The stories will appear in Mike's gossip column each week after he plays with Howard. Here are this week's stories:
Mike got off the line and Howard was going to take a break. He spent a couple of minutes talking about how the Religious Right is taking over this country and people are losing their freedoms. He said he believes that we will be a religious state within 20 years because of this. He said he's been pulled from 6 stations and when he comes back he will tell us more about this stuff. He said that we've lost the fight already. He said he knows he won't be on the air for the upcoming election and all he asks of his fans is to vote against Bush. He said he's going to support Kerry himself. The biggest mistake these people could make is to kick him off the air. He said that he has the power to swing a vote and that's what he did with Governor Patacki when he ran. Howard said that it's the last minute votes that he got for Patacki. He said that if he can get his fans to rally, in a Million Moron March, we could swing this thing. He took a break right after that.
Howard said he's been really depressed about the way the country is going. He was watching a video by the band KoRn yesterday because they sent it over to him because they can't get it played on the air. He said that he believes that young people between 16 and 20 are freaking out now and they're angry about the stuff that's going on. He said that this KoRn video is the best video he's seen. He said that it's the band and their fans ripping apart a music store. He said they ask if it's okay that there all five of the big video channels are owned by the music industry. There were a bunch of things that they show in the video that show the band's frustrations. Howard said he knows how they feel because he feels the same way. Howard said that the video is great but it may not be seen anywhere but on the web. He said the song is good as well.
Howard said that you can't get anything done anymore in this country. He said that the President is talking about changing the Constitution because of the gay marriage thing and it's crazy. He also talked about Janet Jackson and how they're making a big deal about her being on Saturday Night Live. He said she's not going to do anything outrageous after what she did on the Super Bowl half time show. He said that TV has become very bland and people like Jay Leno are the ones who are dragging it there.
Howard said he got a call from someone who tells him about what's going on inside the FCC. He said that he heard that the FCC is going to fine him and make it impossible for his company to keep him on. He said he has to get this message out before he's kicked off the air. He said he kept thinking of the KoRn video and Clear Channel. He said that Clear Channel set him up and threw him to the wolves. He wasn't under any investigation by the government when they kicked him off. There's a congressman out there saying that if Clear Channel got rid of him then Infinity has to do the same to level the playing field. Howard said that no one has gone to court and none of this has been declared indecent yet.
Howard said the guy who told him this stuff told him that he was 99 percent sure that the fines would be filed. Howard read an article about it and said that he is one of the targets that the FCC is going after. They're also going to fine Emmis and Clear Channel. Howard said that they're going to reverse their fine over the Bono using the F-word thing. Howard said that the Government is going to do weird, odd tricks to pressure his company to get rid of him. There's nothing that we can do about it either. Howard said that we've already lost and all he's asking is to remember him when you go in the voting booth. He asked that we vote Bush out of office.
Howard said that people may never hear from him again and he had to get this stuff out now. He said it's outrageous and scary what these people are doing. He said he thought that 10 years ago he thought it was over too but this is really serious. He said he really does see the end now though. He said that if it was his company he would fight to the end but it's not under his control now. He said it has nothing to do with him.
Robin asked him if he's going to get on a ship and do a broadcast from outside the country. Howard said he doesn't want to do something like that. He likes where he is... He said he didn't say that he wouldn't go to satellite radio though.
Howard said that the FCC will probably issue the fines over the weekend. He went on to say that this Senator from Kansas by the name of Brownback, wrote a letter to Mel Karmazin and asked him why he hasn't taken Howard off the air yet. This is a guy who Howard claims, lives with some other politicians in a million dollar townhouse that's paid for by a religious organization. Howard said that this is disturbing to him and anyone living in a place like that has to bow to the pressure of the group. Howard said that the name of the group is The Fellowship. He read an article and said that these guys are out of control. They are in congress and in the senate. He said that the house is valued at $1.1 million and the people living there pay just $600 a month for rent. Howard said that the religious organization is actually the C Street Center which is part of The Fellowship.
Howard said that he has inside information from the FCC that says they're going to fine him for something that's 3 years old. He said he will never be given his day in court. He wants people to wake up and see what's going on. He said you can't believe that this isn't true and his days really are over. He said that there has to be a payback and he's running out of time. He said that when you go into the voting booth, just remember him when he's not on the air.
Scott DePace, a huge Bush supporter, came in and said that if this is all true, he's not going to vote for Bush. Howard said that the Republican party as they knew it no longer exists. They are changing things right before our eyes and the country is turning into a religious country just like the countries we despise in the Middle East.
Howard said that if the FCC would take them to court over this he would have no problem with it. He said that they just won't allow that to happen and the FCC is going to make it impossible for his company to do business instead. The call that Howard got last night was a guy who quickly told him what was going on with the FCC. He said the guy told him and then hung up like he feared for his life.
Howard told Robin that he thinks they'll be on the air next week but after that it's questionable. He said that he's already been asked not to talk about a certain congresswoman (Heather Wilson) and he may be asked not to talk about this senator who wrote a letter to his boss. Robin wondered why he's staying silent about that congresswoman if they're just going to be kicked off the air anyway. Howard said he's doing that because he's trying to follow the wishes of his company.
Howard said that this stuff all came down after he stopped supporting Bush a short time ago. He seems to think that it has something to do with that. A listener called in and told Howard about The Fellowship and how that all started. Howard spent a minute on that and then talked about how he thinks the whole FCC fine thing will go down. He said that he thinks the fines will come out today and his company will stick with him for a short time but they will have to fire him eventually. He said he's heartbroken that it has to end like this. He said it's real scary times we live in right now.
John the Stutterer called in and tried to get some thoughts out. He didn't get a chance because Howard hung up on him. Another caller told Howard that some of these Hollywood stars should be coming out for Howard. He said that Snoop was on yesterday and he should have the black vote. Howard listened to the guy for a minute but he was getting a headache trying to understand him so he bailed on the call.
Howard played a song parody of ''Video Killed the Radio Star'' that was changed to ''Radio Killed the Radio Star.'' He said he doesn't know how much longer he has on the air so he just wants people to remember this broadcast when they're in the voting booth. He said there are some scary assed dudes in office. He got back to this Senator Brownback and how he's backing Bush's gay marriage ban. Howard read that this is the same guy who bathed an employees feet as a way to say goodbye to him. It's all a bunch of religious nonsense.
Howard said that this guy asked about the ''indecent'' broadcasts that are still on Infinity when they haven't been deemed indecent by the courts. Howard said you can't even fight the power because you don't know where it's coming from. He said that everything is f'd up right now. He didn't want to bore everyone with the political stuff anymore.
Howard took a call from Jeff the Drunk who just wanted to say goodbye. He said he's going to miss all of the guys immensely. A few other callers were calling in as well. Someone from Toronto called in and said that Howard still has power and they should be protesting. Howard said that this guy was calling from a place where no one has the balls to protest. He said that he's got no business calling in and telling him what to do. Howard had to take a break shortly after that. He said he'd find a naked girl to come in or something like that. He said he'll go out with a bang.
Howard said he wants his day in court over the fines that are going to be brought out against him. He said that it probably won't happen though. A caller brought up how similar stuff went on in Nazi Germany. The guy also wondered how the separation of church and state can just be thrown away. Howard said that most people don't have time to write letters because they're out there trying to make a living.
Howard said he's not sure if he has a week, two weeks or even a month left on the air but he's pretty sure that he's going to be off the air soon. He said that once he's kicked off the air people will see their local broadcasters joking about how he's finally been kicked off the air. The caller said that we have to try and do something but Howard doesn't think anything will help.
A caller asked Howard why he doesn't arrange a rally. Howard said that most people who listen to the show have important jobs that they can't just leave to go to a rally. The caller said he hates what's going on and he's not going to sit on his thumbs. Howard told the guy how this is going to go down. He sid that the FCC will fine him today, the company will try to fight it for a month or so but the FCC will make it impossible for the company to do business and they'll have to get rid of him. He said after he's off the air, people will forget about it within a month. The caller said that these religious nuts who are out there are as smart as Nazi's and they're taking over the country. He said that he's not going to comment on any of the stuff that goes down over the weekend because he'll be doing it on his own radio show next week.
Howard played a clip of Bill Maher taking shots at him on his show. Howard played more clips from a bunch of TV shows like Bill O'Reilly's show and others. They all have something to say about him when they're on his show and then they change their tune when they're on their own show.
Chaunce Hayden (ChaunceHayden.com) called in and said that he thinks Howard will just come back to satellite radio in a couple of months. Howard told him that the FCC now wants to regulate that industry though so it might not work for him. Chaunce said that he thinks Howard would be a martyr after being kicked off the air. Howard said he doesn't believe that and no one knows what's going on out there. Chaunce said he thinks it'll be a wake up call for the country and they'll finally realize what's happened if Howard is taken off the air.
Howard said he feels like he's in The Matrix or something and he's just waking up to see what's going on in the country now. He said it's all a bunch of little things going on that are opening his eyes. Howard told Ralph about how powerful the FCC is when they hold back licensing and stuff like that. It makes it impossible for the company to do business. Howard said that the FCC stopped their company from buying radio stations when they wanted to take them to court over the fines they had against them years ago. Howard said they had to pay the FCC off to get out of that. He said that his show is over. Ralph asked why the FCC doesn't react to the support they get from the fans who don't want him taken off. They just don't react to anything but complaints for some reason. Howard continued to say that his show is over no matter what. He said that he's too powerful and these people don't like that so they want him off the air. He has bigger ratings than the local news stations and that's power that people are afraid of.
Dominic Barbara called in and said that they picked the 3 year old broadcasts to fine him over so they can just keep adding up fines to the point where the company just won't be able to pay them. Howard said that he knows that these news reporters are going to just mock the whole thing. He talked about that senator who wrote to the head of his company and how he was able to dig stuff up on him immediately. The guy is part of a secret religious society.
Howard played a kid's song where they sing about wiping front to back. Howard said that he heard that and realized he's been wiping back to front and he's been doing it wrong all these years. He said that the reporters were starting to call in already. He took a call from a guy claiming to be a reporter with NBC but it was just an idiot fan. Another caller said that they're just afraid that Howard is going to expose stuff in the government and he's too powerful. Howard agreed with the guy and took a break right after his call.
Howard said he was just waiting for the axe to fall on him and he didn't know what else to do. He and Robin said that it's kind of odd that Tom wasn't even coming in to talk about this stuff. Howard said he told Tom that all of this would go down and he didn't believe him. Tom came in and said that he only knows as much as Howard knows. Tom said he believes that they will be on the air long enough to get to Las Vegas (in May). Howard said he's got a lot of confidence then.
Howard said he walked in on Tom yesterday and he was listening to tapes of DJs to replace him. He was joking though. Tom said he heard that Chris Kidd (actually Kidd Chris) is good. Howard corrected him on the name. Howard said he doesn't think they have more than a month left on the radio. Tom said that they're still planning on being in Vegas the week of May 10th. They're recording shows on the 11th, 12th and 13th. Howard said he is looking forward to that because he's going to be in the room with the bowling alley. He can't wait to have homeless people bowling against each other.
Howard asked Tom if he's as freaked out by this whole thing. Tom said he is and that's why he's there at 6 in the morning. He said he's trying to protect the show and that's why he's getting there so early. In other words, he's there to hit the delay all morning so nothing that could be considered ''indecent'' gets out on the air. Howard said that they need to get a Rick Dees to replace him. He also said that Captain Janks would be a good replacement. Cabbie was also mentioned by Tom. Robin suggested putting him back together with Cane so they could fight with each other. Tom said that won't work.
A woman called in and said that she wanted to announce a rally she's trying to organize. She said they want to meet at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington D.C. on March 20th. Howard asked her what she looks like and after hearing that, he said that no one is going to show up for that.
DJ Will Pendarvis called in and said he was calling in to talk to Tom about Howard's job. He was actually calling in to ask Howard why he's not doing interviews on shows where the people who don't listen to the show might hear what's going on. Howard ended up getting aggravated with Will's thoughts on the whole thing so he had to bail out on the call.
Howard wondered if they should do a Million Moron March with the fans. Robin thought they should and maybe they should do it in Vegas. Howard moved on to play the WCCC promo that they run in Hartford, Connecticut. They talk about how no one is going to take Howard off of their station because they're not a corporate station. Howard said that he loves that they're not corporate. He said that's kind of cool.
Howard had an article from The Bergen Record that he wanted to read for Tom. A black woman wrote an article and complained about Clear Channel taking him off the air. She said she's been listening to him for as long as she can remember. She brought up (Clear Channel's) John Hogan's comments about Howard's broadcast where a listener used the N-word being offensive to women and black people. She said that it's up to her to decide if it's offensive to her. She also wrote about how she likes to tune into a show where a guy doesn't take life so seriously. The woman thinks that she's actually a better person for deciding for herself to listen to Howard's show. Howard said that the woman who wrote the article was Ashante M. Alvarez.
Howard said that Richard Roeper from Ebert and Roeper also wrote a good article. Howard read that article where Roeper talks about how disgusting Maurey Povich's show is and wonders where the congressional hearings about that show are. Roeper says that he's frightened by the overreaction to the Janet Jackson breast flash and all of the other stuff going on. After finishing up the article Howard said that the reason he's talking about this stuff is because he knows that the FCC is bringing fines against him soon and it means the end of the show.
A listener called in and said that John Ashcroft was just rushed to the hospital with chest pains and he thought that could mean the end of Howard's problems. Howard had no idea what the guy was talking about because Ashcroft has nothing to do with his problems.
Howard wondered if he should drop all of this. Robin said she doesn't know what else there is to talk about. Vinnie Favale from CBS called in with a few questions for Howard. He wondered how much money the fines will be. He said he has no idea yet. He told Vinnie that if the company doesn't pay their fines within a matter of months, the FCC will stop issuing them licenses. Howard said it's basically racketeering. That's what they did to the company years ago when they tried fining them the first time. Howard said that they paid them off $1.7 million to get out of that. Howard and Vinnie talked about that stuff a little longer and Howard said that his problem is that he can't get in front of a judge. He said that the government won't let them get to court because they know they don't have a case. Robin said that this is a branch of the government that has gone out of control.
Howard still thinks that this all started when he stopped supporting Bush. That's when Clear Channel pulled his show off of their stations. Howard said he knows that people think this is a bit but his days are over. He said his time has come and he's going to be taken off the air. Not willingly though. He told Vinnie to just remember him in November and vote against Bush. Howard said that people will have something to listen to once he's off the air. It'll probably be a Z-100 or something like that.
Howard said that in about three months he envisions getting on satellite radio and he'll take down the industry he has built up. He said that he'll sell millions and millions of satellite radios. He said he'll embrace it and will take down the very industry he created. Vinnie said that this week has been a bummer week. Howard said that he hates it as well. He had bits set up to do this week but he's got all of this other stuff going on. Howard said he just wants to get the message out to his fans and let them know not to vote for Bush. Howard said that he's not anti-republican though.
Gary told Howard that there was somebody political who called in and said that he hates what's going on with this stuff. Howard read the name and said that he's not going to be able to help them. Howard said this guy backed Al Sharpton. He said he was embarrassed to even mention the guy's name.
Howard said that Bush talks to Jesus in the oval office in his spare time. He said that this is a drunk who used to drive his car into bushes. He said it's time to put a stop to this nonsense. Howard said he hasn't had fines filed against him in 10 years and 2 weeks after he comes out against Bush he's whacked with more fines. Vinnie said that his wife is really depressed about this stuff and they barely spoke this morning. He told Howard to hang in there.
Ralph called in and said he had a more important discussion for him. He wanted to talk about ''Smallville.'' He and Howard argued about this week's episode and how Clark Kent got a call from the future. Howard thought it was perfectly reasonable that the phone lines hit Kryptonite and that caused the time shift. Ralph didn't think it was believable and didn't know what was up with that story line. Howard had to take a break so he cut Ralph off and hung up on him.
