Today's show started off with Howard not having all that much to say. All he had to say was that it was Monday and that they should let Cabbie come in and do the show for them because he was all fired up this morning for some reason. Fred tried to say something while they were talking about that but Howard couldn't hear a word that he had to say. His microphone wasn't working all that well. Howard talked about the stuff Cabbie was talking about when they came in this morning. Howard said the guy has a lot on his mind and it all comes out at once. Gary said that Cabbie tried to call him into the studio as he was walking by but he had to get to his office. Cabbie came in the studio a short time later to talk about what was going on. Howard finds it kind of funny that Cabbie has to have a baby sitter in the studio while he's doing his show these days. Cabbie had one guy helping him out with that but they didn't get along all that well so they have a new guy, Tim Reid, in there with him now. Howard thinks that they're about a week away from having Cabbie saying that Tim isn't a nice guy even though he likes him today.
Gary said that Cabbie was talking about a lot of stuff when they came in this morning. Artie said that he just blurts stuff out and it's like being around a 4 year old with Tourettes. Cabbie has also gotten rid of his porn collection and he's trying to be more spiritual now. Gary brought up how Cabbie had a picture on his cell phone of a nude woman or something and that seemed to turn Cabbie on him. He gave him a look that apparently didn't look so nice. Gary thought the nude woman was his girlfriend but Cabbie said it wasn't her and he'd gotten rid of that picture. Cabbie tried to explain how he really is trying to change now and getting rid of the porn has made things go smoother in his life. Howard told him that he should stop doing stuff like that for a year before announcing it. Gary said that Sam Kinison was like that because he'd come in and brag about being sober for 18 days which isn't all that much. Cabbie said that he's not Sam Kinison and he's been sober for 88 days now.
Cabbie mentioned that they have a staff meeting today and a lot of people are afraid of losing their jobs. Cabbie says he's not afraid though and thinks that he does his job right. He says he has an idea about what the meeting is about and has figured it out. Howard says he knows what's going on but he's sworn to secrecy.
Cabbie was talking about this guy Tim Reid who has been sitting in on his show. He said the guy taught him how to put his show on CD instead of cassette like he's been doing for 3 years now. Tim came in a short time later so Howard talked to him about the other guy that had been sitting in with him before. Tim said that he just makes sure that Cabbie follows the music log that they have there at the station. He tries to make sure that Cabbie does his job. If he doesn't, then he's supposed to go tell Tom Chiusano or Rob (Cross) about it. Howard asked Tim if there has been any close calls with Cabbie doing anything wrong. Tim said there have been no problems at all. He does believe that Cabbie could do the job alone, without supervision. Howard said Tim has a lot of odd jobs around the station but Tim said that he was gone for about a year and just came back recently. He left the station and moved down to Washington for a while but came back to be with his family that didn't make the move with him.
Howard asked Tim to keep a journal of things that Cabbie says during his air shift so they can share it with his audience. He thought it could become a really good book or even a feature length movie. Gary said that Cabbie told him last week that ''It takes a thousand lies to un-tell one.'' That's the kind of ''Cabbieism'' that Howard is looking for Tim to keep track of. Cabbie said that Gary didn't take it right and didn't say it right but he didn't want to correct him. Howard took a call from a guy who thought Tim was lying about how he thinks Cabbie could do his show without supervision. He said that Cabbie's show is a mess and it's got dead air and some technical problems all the time. Tim said that's not the case and the last time they had a problem was on Thursday morning because Cabbie wasn't told that he was in delay or something like that.
Howard, Artie and Fred were doing impressions of Cabbie for a couple of minutes kind of goofing on him. Cabbie seemed to think it was kind of amusing. He had to stick around until their 9:15 staff meeting this morning so Howard and Artie goofed on him about that as well. They were goofing on him about being locked up like King Kong until that meeting happens.
A listener called in and brought up a conversation he had with Cabbie when he was on the air one time. The caller said that Cabbie gave him his cell phone number and when he called him back Cabbie called him a jerkoff or something. Howard didn't know what the point of the conversation was so he hung up on him and went to commercial break.
Howard was down in Florida this weekend so he didn't hear all that much about the Pope. He took his family down to Florida and had a nice time. He took some of Beth's family and his friends Pat and Deb down there as well. Howard did some fishing at a lake down there and liked it. He said he caught a couple of fish but threw them back. He's laughed at Tom Chiusano about his fishing in the past so Robin pointed that out as she laughed at him. Howard said he doesn't like sharing his personal life with Robin anymore. He and Beth are thinking of getting fishing rods now because they both enjoyed fishing. Howard said it sounds dumb but it was relaxing. Howard said he also golfed about a year ago and thought it was okay but he wouldn't waste his time with it because it's an all day thing. Howard said there are just too many other things he'd like to do. He may do some fishing this summer when they get some vacation time. Tom Chiusano came in and said that he feels somewhat vindicated now that Howard has talked about liking the fishing. Howard said that he goofed on Tom because he showed pictures of his fishing trips. Tom said that Howard goofed on him about the whole fishing thing, not just the pictures. He told Howard that he should try Fly fishing. Howard didn't know what kind of fishing he was doing so Tom was boring us all telling us the differences between casting and fly fishing. Howard told Tom that they are not bros now that they've both gone fishing. He wanted to make that clear to him.
Howard said he went fishing with his friend Pat since he was the only one who knew what he was doing. The trip to Florida was relaxing for him and it was just nice to be down there. Robin told Howard she once played Bocce ball down in Florida and was thinking about creating her own bocce ball course at her house.
Howard brought up the Pope's death and how Gary was watching the coverage over the weekend. That led to him talking about the shoes they had him dressed in while he was on display for everyone to see. Gary said he found it odd that people were praying for the guy to live another day when it was obvious that he wasn't going to get better. He was also telling Howard about some of the stuff he learned while watching the coverage of his death. They were showing the pope's room and explaining how his room light was on or off and he didn't know why he was seeing that stuff. Howard talked about one news report where a guy was trying to do his report on what was going on but a producer blurted out that the pope was dead and blew the reporter's coverage. It turns out that this happened on Friday before the Pope was actually dead so it was a mistake. Howard thought that it was just the producer blowing it. Scott the Engineer came in and said he saw that report and found out later that he wasn't dead yet. Howard said the one good thing about that story is that the Terri Schiavo case has basically been dropped from the news coverage.
Artie said he was down in Dallas over the weekend and had a great time down there. He went to do a DVD signing and there was a line of people there to get stuff signed. He said that some kid announced that the Pope was dead and the people in the line couldn't have been less effected. Artie also went down to see the spot where JFK was shot. He said they've turned the depository into a museum and you get to stand about 2 feet from where Oswald shot Kennedy. He said they actually have an X out on the street so you can see where Kennedy was shot. Fred was there a few years ago and said that someone could have killed Kennedy with a brick because it was so close. Artie went and checked out the Grassy knoll as well and he said that it could have happened there as well. There were a bunch of conspiracy theorists there at the grassy knoll and one guy said he hates Howard because he doesn't believe the story. He gave Artie a DVD for Howard to watch but that probably won't be happening.
Howard spent some time talking about the Pope's replacement. He wondered if the ''black guy'' is going to get the job. Artie said he thinks that's all for show and there's not much of a chance that he'll get the job. Howard was also saying that they're crediting Pope John Paul with the fall of communism in Poland but he's not so sure that's right. He said he's not so sure that they be giving the guy as much credit as they are. Howard brought up the Terri Schiavo case and talked about how wrong it was for Michael Schiavo to block the family from visiting their daughter in her last hours. Howard has been saying that it was okay for the guy to let his wife die but he did think that he should have let her parents see their daughter. Now the guy isn't even going to give the family one bit of her cremated ash.
Howard is thinking of having a contest where they try to make Eric laugh since he doesn't seem to laugh much. Eric said there are things that he does laugh at like sitcoms and stuff. He said Howard makes him laugh once in a while but he didn't laugh at the George Takei prank call they'd just played. Howard said that he'd give anyone who could make Eric laugh a $500 prize. Richard Christy came in a minute later and said he'd give it a try. He asked Eric ''What's the difference between High Pitch Eric and a whale?... A whale doesn't stink.'' Eric kind of chuckled but it wasn't much of a laugh. Richie from E! came in and tried next. Richie asked Eric ''What's the hardest part of eating a vegetable?... The wheelchair.'' That didn't work, Eric didn't think that was funny either. Howard told Eric he still believes in him as an actor and he wishes him luck with his career. Artie told Eric that he needs to work on a fake laugh so he can amuse the producers out in Hollywood. Eric didn't want to do it though.
Bong Hit Eric tried to make Eric laugh. He told a really lame joke that didn't make anyone laugh. Artie told him to take a hit off his bong, maybe that would help. Bong Hit took a hit and coughed a bit since he'd just gotten up a short time before. Eric the Actor wasn't laughing. Another guy called in and asked Eric ''What do you say to a woman with two black eyes?... You don't, you already told her twice.'' Eric didn't laugh. Zolar called in and tried to make him laugh by saying he ran over High Pitch Eric but that didn't work. Howard let a few other callers through to try and make him laugh but no one was successful. There was a delay hit at one point because someone cursed when they called in. Joey Boots called in and said that he would give Eric half of his $500 if he just laughed. That didn't even work so Howard hung up on Joey. High Pitch Eric tried calling in and telling a story about Richard Christy crying in the back of his car over the weekend because he was driving without a license. Richard told one more joke that finally worked. He said ''High Pitch is so fat that he has to go to Sea World to get baptized.'' Eric let out a laugh that got Richard a $500 prize. Howard had to take another break after that.
Howard said he's upset that the Pope news knocked Pat O'Brien out of the news. Artie said that they're talking about Pat going back to The Insider eventually. Robin said she doesn't get why it's a big deal because he's just reporting on Brad and Jen type stories. That led to Howard replaying the audio clips of Pat's alleged voice mail messages to a woman he was seeing. Howard was trying to figure out some stuff that Pat was saying in the clip. He wondered how this woman was supposed to respond to Pat with the wink that he was asking for. Gary said that Vinnie Favale tried to explain it to him the other day and he heard that it was a woman that was out at a bar with him but had gone home early or something like that. Artie said that he'd like to see the chick that he left the message for. Howard said she's probably not even that hot. He played a song parody they made using those audio clips and the delay was hit at least one time while he played the song. Howard said that he would never have left messages like that on anyone's voice mail when he was dating. He wouldn't even send e-mails because he'd be afraid of something like this happening. He played a second song parody they created with the Pat O'Brien clips. They also got Gary the Retard to remake the voice mail messages so Howard played that.
Howard brought up actor Tom Sizemore and played some audio clips of an interview he did on Dateline recently where he talked about the problems he's had. Sizemore claims that he never hit Heidi Fleiss like she claimed. Sizemore walked off the set of the interview at one point because he was so upset about the whole interview. He went back and finished up the interview and talked about how bad things have been for him.
Howard got back to the Pat O'Brien voice mail clips and goofed on them for a couple more minutes. He and Artie were creating their own voice mail messages but the delay button was hit multiple times. Gary came in and said that he got a call from Pat's publicist who asked when they were going to stop playing this stuff. Artie said that they're never going to stop playing this stuff and Gary should tell the publicist that. Gary said that he tried to explain that everyone is playing the clips but the publicist said that when Howard plays them, everyone is listening. Howard kept going with the goofing and kept making up more of his own voice mail messages where he was talking about doing all kinds of weird stuff that had Artie laughing pretty hard.
Ralph Cirella called in and said that he likes Pat now that he's heard these tapes so he'd tune in to watch the guy now. He seems to think the publicist should be thanking Howard for playing the clips instead of asking them to stop. Gary said he had a picture of the woman that Pat was calling. Howard saw the picture and said she was pretty cute. He also read a note from an anonymous woman who claims that Pat used to hit on her like that as well. The woman said she asked Pat what his wife would think about that and that made him stop bothering her for 2 months.
Howard pointed out that Hugh Hefner is almost as old as the Pope was and he looks a lot younger. The guys were talking about how having all of those chicks must keep the guy young.
Howard asked Cliff if he could get his mother to call in with him so they could ask her why she never got the operation for him. Cliff said he didn't think that would happen because she wouldn't like being on the radio. Robin asked Cliff if he has any brothers and sisters. Cliff said he does have a brother and a sister. He said that his brother is an alcoholic but he doesn't have any cleft Palette or anything like that. Howard let Cliff go after that.
Howard took a call from a woman who told him how hot she finds him. That led to Howard doing his Pat O'Brien impression using his megaphone. He was telling the caller how hot she was and how he wanted to do stuff with her. She was just calling in to tell Howard he was hot so she ended up hanging up on him. Artie said they should have Cliff Palette remake the Pat O'Brien tapes like they did with Gary the Retard. Howard replayed that bit and then went to commercial break.
Artie told Howard to tell everyone his other idea for April Fools. He said that he wanted to have Ralph and Dominic Barbara do the show. Tom put a stop to that because he didn't want to spoil it for the sponsors who demand that they have an audience for their advertisements. Howard said he would have fought for that years ago but he didn't bother.
Ralph was on the phone a short time later complaining about Tom Chiusano since he put a stop to the whole thing. Tom came walking in just as Ralph was calling him a name. Tom said that he couldn't care less about what Ralph thinks of him. Tom said he thinks Howard has a lot of great ideas but that just wasn't one of the good ones. Tom told Ralph that he's the most polarizing guest on the show and he didn't think that it was a good idea to let Ralph take over the show. The guys spent a few minutes talking about that stuff.
Ralph mentioned that he overheard Tom editing a song that they play on the station. Tom said that he wasn't editing the song, he said there were a couple of lines in the song that they couldn't play on the air and he made a couple of suggestions so the band actually went back and rerecorded the song with the new lines. He said one of the lines was about a sexual position where a woman would be on her knees so Tom suggested that they change it to the guy being on his knees begging for forgiveness. Ralph said the song was horrible either way though so he was wasting his time. Tom had to get going because he had his big staff meeting in a few minutes. He said a few final words about turning down Ralph as the host of the Stern Show for a day and left the studio.
Ralph brought up ''The Contender'' and how gay it's gotten lately. Howard got him off the phone a minute later but continued to talk about the show. He said there are some gay things going on with that show. That led to Artie talking about some stuff he's heard about professional boxers and the weird stuff they do with their sparring partners. He said he's heard that boxers will go into the showers and basically rape their sparring partners to show their dominance. Howard and Robin didn't seem to believe Artie's story though. Howard had to take another break after that. Artie said he was going to run down to the staff meeting to find out what's going on with that whole thing.
Howard spent a few minutes talking about his father since he'd spent the weekend with him. He said that his father's hearing said weren't working so he didn't hear much of anything and he didn't talk all that much while they were away.
Howard played tape of Will calling Eric the Actor off the air and getting him to laugh with some Chicago Cubs jokes. The jokes weren't all that funny but Eric was pretty amused by them and chuckled a few times.
Program Director Rob Cross came in to give a better explanation about what the format change really involves. Rob said that they will have a new internet channel where they will be playing the alternative stuff. They will throw some of that into the mix but they won't get to it that often on the air. The K-Rock 2 is supposed to premiere this morning on their web site KRockRadio.com. Howard wondered why Artie couldn't have been in the meeting. It wasn't that big of a deal to kick someone out. Artie thought that the format change was great in his opinion.
Howard called Crazy Cabbie back into the office because he heard that he was off his meds. Cabbie said that he tried to get the meds refilled but his coverage had expired so he couldn't get it filled. He said they wanted $700 for the prescription because of that. Howard let Cabbie go a short time later. Howard took a phone call from a guy who was upset about the format change even though he hadn't heard the first song yet. Tom told the guy to go to their web site and let them know what songs he wanted to hear. Another caller said he wants to hear some real heavy metal on the station but Howard has nothing to do with that stuff. Howard said he doesn't care what the station plays. He said they'll be out of there in about 8 months anyway. Tom said that the first song they play in their new format will be an AC/DC song. He didn't know the correct name for the song so Artie had to correct him. Artie also ended up doing his AC/DC impression for a few seconds. Tom then corrected himself and said the first song was going to be ''Welcome to the Jungle'' not the AC/DC song he thought it was. Howard had Robin finish up her news and ended the show around 10:20am.
Howard started off the show talking about an article he was reading in the paper this morning. A person wrote a letter to the newspaper about how the mother of the kid who is accusing Michael Jackson of sexual abuse has the phone numbers of a bunch of comedians and she didn't bother to call 911 when her son was allegedly abused, she called other comedians. That led to the guys talking about how comedians aren't looking to help anyone out. Howard started to repeat the lines from the Pat O'Brien voice mail tapes. Artie said he saw a giant poster of Pat O'Brien over by the CBS building in the city when he was driving through yesterday. Howard heard that Pat is going to appear on the Dr. Phil show when he makes his return to TV. Robin said that Dr. Phil is getting into that area where he humiliates kids on his TV show. She saw him berating a young girl who says she started having sex at the age of 12.
Howard played a tape of a reporter out in Los Angeles talking about Pat O'Brien's problems with the voice mail messages. The reporter said that Howard Stern was having a field day with the messages. He also mentioned that a lot of other deejays around the country are playing them as well. Howard said they're also all over the internet so anyone can find them and hear them.
Howard took a call from a guy who asked Howard if he's ever played a stripper game with his girlfriend Beth to find out how smart she is. Howard said he wouldn't play that with her and she seems pretty smart to him. Howard doesn't see any reason to do that because he already gets to see her naked and he has no reason to bring her down there to humiliate her. Howard was going to question the caller but his phone connection sucked so he ended up hanging up on him instead.
Howard replayed the George Takei prank call he played yesterday. The guys took clips of Takei's voice from a book on tape and used the lines to call a redneck from Arkansas. Howard took a commercial break after playing that call.
Ronnie the Limo Driver came in and told Howard that the Fink bakeries went bankrupt a few years ago. Gary came in and said that the family had sold the company in 2000 and it went bankrupt in 2002 so Jimmy was probably fine. Gary also said that the stuff he was reading said that the company had a lot of big companies as clients and they lost a lot of the business after 9/11 since most of their customers were from lower Manhattan.
Howard said that the head of the radio division at Infinity was saying that people really like to hear about local information when they listen to radio so satellite isn't going to be all that attractive. Howard said that's the same old tired argument that he's had from people through his whole career. He proved it doesn't matter though and it won't matter when he makes his move. Howard read an article about how XM has added half a million customers to their subscriber base. The companies are growing faster than cell phones are. Howard zipped through the article which mentioned both XM and Sirius information. That is forcing regular radio stations to change the way they do business. Howard said that his station, K-Rock, is now streaming music through their web site now. Howard read the quotes from Joel Hollander where he said that people like to hear local news and stuff when they listen to radio. Artie said that the people down in Dallas didn't seem to care much about local content from what he could tell when he was down there this past weekend.
Howard was talking about how a lot of people think that they can do his job and they think they can tell him how to run his show. People like Tom Chiusano who wouldn't let Howard do what he wanted to do with Ralph on April Fools day. Tom came in a short time later to defend himself. Howard told him that he's actually not that bad of a guy, there have been worse. Tom said that he treats the other jocks pretty well but Howard thinks that people like Tom treat them with contempt. Howard busted Tom's balls about that stuff for a short time and talked about some of the other bosses he's had over the years that were worse than Tom. Howard said he could never go through that stuff again.
Howard mentioned that he got an invitation from Tom's son Timm for a party they're throwing after his wedding that's coming up on Friday. Tom said he leaves tomorrow to go to the wedding which is out in Oregon. Howard said he asked Tom if he should try to talk his son out of getting married. Tom told him not to bother. Howard said that he's spoken to some people and has talked at least one person out of getting married. Howard wondered if Tom tried to talk his son out of it. Tom said he did ask him some questions but he didn't try to talk him out of the marriage. Tom's son is 27 years old which is pretty young. Tom said that he got married when he was 29 so it's not that far off. Tom told Howard that they have a couple of hundred people coming to the party. They've invited a bunch of people from the company including Joel Hollander. Howard asked if Dead Air Dave is going to be at the party. Tom said that he didn't want to talk about all of the people who he invited. He didn't invite Dave and didn't want to go over the rest of the guys who were left off the list. Robin said she was invited to the party. Tom said that he invited Gary and Robin Radzinski since he's friends with her. He's not all that close to the rest of the E! guys though. Tom mentioned that they're going to have an open bar there so Artie said those are his two favorite words... ''Open Bar.'' Tom told Howard about some of the other people who have been invited to the party and there were quite a few people from the station who were invited.
Tom said he's worked with Howard for almost 20 years now so he had to invite him and Robin. Artie was invited as well and he's only known Tom for about 5 years. Scott the Engineer wasn't invited so Artie said he can't wait to tell Scott about the party. Scott the Engineer came in and said that he seems to be the point where people draw the line when they invite people. Tom said he's just keeping up the tradition by not inviting Scott to the party. Tom told Howard that he's going to have a band at the party but it's going to be a jazz band. Howard said he would like to dance at the party but he can't dance to jazz.
Howard changed subjects and said that it's looking like the new Pope could end up being a black guy. Artie said if that happens then they'd better reinforce that ''bullet proof tube'' that the Pope drives around in. Howard had to take a break a short time after that.
Howard said he got a memo from Jason about this guy who was busting Howard's balls for taking a day off last week. Jason found that Oprah Winfrey takes about 32 weeks off a year and she's scheduled for 37 weeks vacation in 2006. Howard just wants a break.
Howard said the guys were on the GodHatesFags.com web site and found that Shirley has been saying that the Pope is burning in hell. Shirley thought that Howard had moved to the new place after hearing the stuff they were playing before putting her on. Howard said they haven't moved yet but they will be able to say a lot more when they move. Artie told her that they have some new names for her when they move but they can't say them on their station now.
Shirley told Howard that the Pope was in charge of a lot of Pedophiles and he had to have known about it so that's why he is burning in hell now. She called the Catholic church a ''monster'' and the Pope should have gotten away from it. She said the same thing about Mother Theresa and rambled on about some stuff from the bible. Howard asked her what religion she is. Shirley said she's just a servant of God and then said that she's a Baptist but not a Southern Baptist who are apparently liars according to Shirley. Shirley said that she has been standing out on the street holding up a sign of the Pope that says ''Pope in Hell.'' She said she does that in Topeka but she has also been traveling. A lot of people have been giving her the finger and cursing at her but there was one person who gave her the thumbs up when he drove by.
Howard took a call from a guy who said that this lady is a psycho and she doesn't know what she's talking about. The caller said that the Pope has done wonderful things and what she believes isn't true. Shirley said that the Pope was an enabler and that's just as bad as being a pedophile. Another caller cursed at her and said he'd like to take a 2X4 to her head. Yucko the Clown called in and told her to shut up. He called her some names and pointed out that she's got ugly yellow teeth. He also told her to kiss his clowny red ass before Howard hung up on him. A few other callers went off on Shirley about her nonsense.
Howard asked Shirley about her husband and how they found each other. She told Howard about how he chased her around for a while and eventually got married at the age of 25. Howard asked Shirley if she ever made out with a guy before the age of 25. Shirley claims that she didn't kiss anyone else before that. Shirley kept trying to change the subject when Howard asked her to swear on the lord Jesus Christ that she never had sex with anyone other than her husband. Howard asked her if she ever pleasured herself before marriage. She kept avoiding the question but eventually said that she has never done anything like that. Shirley said she wanted to ''elevate the dialog'' from what they were talking about but Howard didn't want to do that. He also had Shirley repeat her pronunciation of ''Pedophile'' which sounded like ''Peedofile.''
Howard let a few other callers go off on Shirley about the stuff she was talking about. One woman said that Jesus told people not to judge others. Shirley rambled on and on about what Jesus actually said and how the woman had it wrong. Will the Farter called in and blasted a few farts over the phone which seemed to upset Shirley more than anything else. A woman called in and asked Shirley if she has a bush. Shirley said that she has a bush in her yard and then asked if anyone who listens to the show has a brain. Shirley said that just about everyone is going to Hell. Howard asked her to name someone current who is worthy of going to heaven. She couldn't come up with an answer. She said that a person like Mel Gibson is going to hell because he's Catholic. She said that Terri Schiavo won't be going to heaven either because she ''didn't serve god'' while she was on earth. Robin wondered how she could know that, she didn't know Terri Shiavo. Howard took some more phone calls and let some more people goof on his kook. The guys asked her about some other people who could have gone to heaven. She said that the only person she knows of that's in Heaven is Abraham.
Howard summed up the conversation and said that Shirley didn't have sex or even kiss a guy until she was 25 and she's never pleasured herself. He said he doesn't buy it but Shirley doesn't care what he buys or not. Howard also said he finds it funny that she won't swear to god that she never pleasured herself. Shirley said that even if she did something like that it wouldn't change anything. Howard continued to goof on her about everything and she just kept telling them that they were all going to hell. Howard said that he thinks that someone like Fred Gwynne, who played Herman Munster, went to heaven. He said that the guy never hurt a fly and he made people laugh so he probably went to heaven. Shirley said that has nothing to do with serving god so he went to hell. Mr. Rogers was also brought up and Shirley said he went straight to hell because he was a pervert.
Howard said he wishes that her sons urn effeminate when they grow up and turn on her. She said that they won't turn on her. Howard wrapped up and gave her some plugs for her many web sites. She has GodHatesFags.com, GodHatesAmerica.com, and GodHatesSweden.com. Howard got off the phone with her and said he just likes that domain name ''GodHatesSweden.com'' The guys continued to talk about her nutty thoughts for a couple of minutes before going to break. (And don't forget GodHatesShirley.com)
Artie said that Jason wrote a transcript of the Pat O'Brien tapes and one of the lines read ''your kids can watch'' so he wondered if that was right. Howard had to listen to the tapes again to see if he was right. Jason said he listened to them a bunch of times and other people listened to it and that's their best guess at what he said. Howard played a couple of clips and tried to figure out what was going on. They couldn't find the right clip so Howard ended up taking a phone call from a guy who said he agreed with Shirley from earlier in the show. The guy said he agrees about the pedophile stuff she was talking about. Howard said he agrees that if someone knows that they have pedophiles in the church they should do something about it. Artie asked Howard if he would fire him if he found out he was a pedophile. Howard said Artie has a lot of talent so he's not sure if he would. Howard gave up on that call and got back to the Pat O'Brien stuff.
Howard played the clips that Jason suggested so they could figure out what the guy was saying. It did kind of sound like he said ''the kids can watch'' in one clip. They moved on to another clip where he may have said ''your kids can watch.'' The guys listened closely and tried to figure out if he really said ''your kids can watch'' after talking about getting some coke and hookers. That's what it sounded like to the guys but Howard said that he wasn't sure that's what he was actually saying or not. Howard said they're not even sure it's actually Pat O'Brien on those tapes.
Howard took a call from a guy who said that it sounded like Pat was saying ''Bets can watch'' because he was talking about a woman by the name of Betsy during the call. The caller also told Howard he can't wait for him to make his move to Sirius. Howard said he can't wait either. He's really impatient about making the move. Robin said he's like a little kid who wants something as soon as he sees it. Howard ended up goofing on the Pat O'Brien clips again by making up his own lines and doing an impression of the guy. The delay was hit a couple of times but Artie and Howard were cracking up over whatever it was he was saying. Both of them were goofing on how old Pat is and how they're sure that the woman was really thrilled to have a 57 year old guy leaving those messages on her voice mail. Prank Caller Captain Janks called in and said that he thinks that Pat O'Brien thinks that he's so popular that other people should want to do things with him just because he's famous. He said that Michael Jackson is the same way.
Howard read a bunch of other mail and then brought up Jane Fonda who is out on a book tour. Howard and Artie were talking about her Vietnam pictures where she was visiting the enemy and laughing while sitting on their tanks and stuff like that. Howard said that she was really hot back then too and he would have given anything just to have been able to feel one of her boobs. Howard had some audio clips of Jane being interviewed recently and she sounded kind of wacky according to him. Howard did defend Jane's visit to Vietnam by saying that the blame for the war isn't on her, it's on the government. Fonda also talks about the chicks she used to pick up for her husband when she was younger. Howard said she must have been able to get some really hot chicks because she was so hot herself. Howard said he could have been perfectly happy with just Jane back when she was still hot.
A listener called in and asked Howard if he's going to be airing the show live on Sirius when he moves there. Howard said it'll be live at 6am on the East coast but it it'll be 3 hours earlier out in the area where this guy was calling in from. Howard said he thinks that it will all be worked out but he's not able to figure it out at this time. The caller also asked Howard a question about Tom and ''Insanity broadcasting.'' He wondered why the company won't help pay for him to do a farewell tour of the country and if it's got to do with them not wanting the word to get out about his move. Howard said the company could benefit from the tour but he's not sure he wants to do with them because they've apparently gone back on their word about something that he's no too happy about. Howard is now planning to wait until he's let go from the company before doing the tour. That may mean the tour will be happening in the middle of winter though. That won't be the best time to travel across the country.
The phone caller asked Howard if he could bring back the ''Stump the Joke Man'' bit they used to do but do it with Artie. Howard said that's not really Artie's thing. The caller asked Howard ''What do you call a black man who flies a plane?'' Howard and Robin both knew that the answer was ''A Pilot, you racist'' but Howard gave the guy a $500 prize anyway and went right to commercial break.
Howard brought up this guy Sergeant Paul Ray Smith who was killed in action over in Iraq after killing off about 50 Iraqis when they were ambushed. Howard said that's the kind of stuff they should talk about every day. Robin said they ended up giving a medal to the guy's son and it seemed very odd to her that the President was the one handing it over to the kid.
A phone caller asked Howard what he thinks about ''Lost'' and what was in the bit locked capsule that Locke found on this week's episode. Howard said that he's not good at guessing what they're going to do with that show. He said it would be cool if they were on a different planet or something like that but it's never that cool. Gary came in and said that they're supposed to be killing off one of the major characters on the show by the end of the season. No one is sure who that is though. The caller ended up asking for some prize money so Howard gave it to him and moved on.
Howard said he watched a lot of TV yesterday and couldn't stop watching ''Fear Factor'' last night. Gary said that he has one episode on his TiVo that he can't throw away. He said that they had reality stars on the show and they had to do all kinds of sick stunts. Howard said he thinks that Joe Rogan has to be on ''the juice'' because his neck is huge. He said he looks fat now that he's so pumped up. He thinks that Joe is getting too wide and it's looking a bit strange now. Gary said he likes when Joe gets on the megaphone and yells at the people that they can do it. Howard changed subjects and said he loves ''Joan of Arcadia.'' Gary said he's tried to watch that show but he just can't get into it. Howard complained about how they talk way too soft on that show though and that's really annoying. The boyfriend on the show is one who talks way too soft and no one talks like that in real life. Artie said he ended up watching an old episode of ''All in the Family'' that was great. He said that Archie ended up giving CPR to a woman that turned out to be a guy and Meathead asked him what he would have done if he had known that it was a guy before. Artie said that Archie responded ''I would have found a fag fireman...'' Howard had Robin start her news after that. They ended the show around 10:15am
Howard started off the morning talking about how he was trying to eat his breakfast before the show but he had an audience of Sal the Stockbroker, Dan the Song Parody Man and Richard ''The Perv'' Christy watching over him while Gary filled him in on what was going on. He said he's got to get used to having that kind of crowd watching over him like that.
The Guys brought up all of the bad news lately with people dying, Peter Jennings announcing that he has cancer and that actor Vincent Pastore has been accused of beating up his girlfriend. Howard said Pastore has a lot of nerve beating up any chick looking the way he does. Howard said the guy should be thankful that he's getting laid at all. Dominic Barbara is Pastore's lawyer and he's saying that the whole thing is just a misunderstanding. Howard read an article about the incident and played an audio clip about it. The audio clip wasn't re-cued so Howard was kind of pissed about that. He said that it just stops him in his tracks when something like that happens. He ended up getting even more pissed off about that.
Howard also brought up how biased FOX news seems to be these days. He said he tried to watch Hannity and Coombs the other day and they were calling Jane Fonda ''Hannoi Jane'' in a promotional scroll at the bottom of the screen. He doesn't get why they haven't gotten past that point in the woman's life. He said that Sean Hannity was interviewing Billy Graham's son Franklin and letting him ramble on and on about how people have to pray to Jesus. Alan Combs asked if they really believe that everyone in the country has to believe in what they believe in. Hannity and Graham apparently went off on him as if he were un-American because of that. Howard had to turn the show off because it was so ridiculous to him. That discussion led to Artie bringing up how Jimmy Swaggert is doing an infomercial where he's selling a new version of the bible and he doesn't understand how a guy who has allegedly picked up hookers can get away with pushing religion and selling bibles.
Howard read an article about this new indecency jail time thing and wondered where this is all coming from. He said that he's just entertaining people in an adult way and there's nothing wrong with that. There is no reason to jail people over anything like that. He said that it would be the one way that the government could finally make him go away because nothing else has worked so far. He said he's still got his audience and advertisers. Now they're threatening people so much that Comcast cable is thinking of dropping the E! channel so they won't have Howard Stern drawing attention to them. That way they won't hit by the indecency crackdown if it comes to that. Howard's show on E! is shown in what's called ''Safe Harbour'' where they should be able to show stuff on network TV that they can't show at other times of the day yet they're still thinking of removing the whole network because of it. Howard said he'd just like the government to come to him and tell him if they're going to keep coming after him for this indecency crap. He said he'd rather walk away from all of this stuff than go to jail for it. He said it's really frustrating when he's just trying to make his move to satellite and they still have the government talking about cracking down on indecency on cable and satellite.
Howard said that satellite radio is going to be successful with or without him and if the radio companies out there, like Clear Channel, think that he has anything to do with it, they're wrong. It's just something that's going to take off no matter what as far as he's concerned. He said he feels like he's being set up in all of this to take the fall and he doesn't get it. He claims that there are things going on behind the scenes that he doesn't even talk about on the air because he doesn't want to talk about it. He said he can't begin to tell people about the number of government agencies involved with him. He asked to be let out of his current contract so he can move on to the other place and try to get away from the controversy. He said he can't take the pressure anymore and he wants out for self preservation.
King of All Blacks called in and said that what's being done to Howard is crazy. He said that the station doesn't want to let him go but they also find some kind of joy in all of this stuff that's coming out. Howard said he doesn't feel like he's in the company of friends at that company anymore. King said that Howard is now going to bring all of that heat to satellite radio when he makes the move. He also said that everyone is going to subscribe to satellite and then people are going to get pissed when the crackdowns come there. Howard said that people shouldn't subscribe to satellite and told everyone to stay away from it. King got in a quick plug for KingOfAllBlacks.com before he got off the phone. Artie wondered how he was able to get that domain name while he can't even get his own name because it's owned by a Japanese porn company. Howard said he lucked out and a fan had grabbed his domain name and handed it over to him no problem. Artie hasn't been so lucky and the Japanese company wants a lot of money for his domain name. Howard had to take a break after that quick discussion.
Howard played an audio clip of a news report about Vincent Pastore getting into trouble for allegedly beating up his girlfriend. Howard said it really is a man's world when a guy like that goes off on a woman like that.
Howard talked about how there's a bishop in the news who apparently covered up for a bunch of child molesting priests and yet that guy gets to vote for the next Pope. Howard said he finds that hard to believe and he almost wanted to agree with that woman Shirley from GodHatesFags.com who was on the show yesterday talking about how the Catholic church covers up stuff like that.
Howard brought up an article in The Globe about Al Roker having gained back some weight after having his stomach stapled. That led to Artie talking about how he broke his ''no food after 3pm'' edict. He said he was walking past Uptown Pizza in Hoboken, New Jersey the other night and had to stop in and get 3 slices of pizza at 6 o'clock in the evening. He said he didn't just get one slice though, he had to get three. Howard read through the article in The Globe about Roker who has been back to eating a lot of food, but not quite as much as he was eating before he had his stomach operation. Howard said it's really not fair that people like that can lose weight by getting an operation while other people have to limit their food intake. Howard had to take another break a short time later.
Howard had a new gay porn clip that they listened to quickly. Artie joked that it was exclusive tape from the Mets locker room. Howard replayed the Gary the Retard, Wendy the Retard and Racist Daniel Carver phone call he played yesterday where they talked about the black pope for a few minutes. He said he had quite a few requests to replay that bit. Howard and the guys spent a few minutes talking about the call and how Daniel was able to fool Wendy into talking about the blacks the way he did.
Dan the Song Parody Man came in and told a story about how he and Artie were out one night at a club where they were hooking them up with strippers and tons of booze. Artie told Dan they were going to get out of there and go to someplace better so Dan thought they were going to go to another great club. They got into a cab and Artie told the driver to take them to an all night burger place...
Howard had the guys bring in male model Fabio so he could promote his new TV show. Before the break Howard had mentioned that he hoped Fabio had lost all of his looks. Robin and Howard both checked him out and Robin said he still looked pretty good. Artie said he'd met Fabio out in the hall and he seemed like a good guy. Howard asked Fabio if he ever went to any bachelor parties like Artie did. Fabio said he'd been to one or so. That led to Artie telling another story about another party he'd gone to years ago. He had a friend who wanted to go down and party in Atlantic City. The friend had some connections to the cops so he had an out if they got pulled over at all. They were mixing drinks in the car and did manage to get away with a few things. They got down to Atlantic City and blew the thousand bucks that his friend had for gambling. The friend went and got $60 so they could get a motel. They went to the hotel room and Artie had to do a number 2. He said it was the most disgusting number 2 ever and it was like peeling the paint off the walls. As he was in there he heard his friend talking to someone. The friend had picked up a whore and when Artie came walking out of the bathroom, they were both holding napkins over their faces to cover up the smell. The whore said that the friend had paid the whore to do something to Artie. Artie said that she ended up doing something that got the delay hit. Fred was playing some gagging clips so we can assume it was oral. The friend ended up going after Artie and he spent like an hour and a half with the whore. Artie said he eventually went back to the room and tried to go to bed. He heard something crash during the night and it turned out the friend had left the used condom on the mirror between the beds and it fell off and splashed on Artie's shirt. Howard jokingly said that the friend was actually Fabio.
Howard moved on to talk to Fabio for a little bit. Fabio told Howard he looks great and he can't wait until he moves to Sirius. He said that he has satellite radio in his car and he loves technology. Howard figured that the guy was kind of out of it because of that accent of his.
The guys were talking about how they never hear stories about Fabio doing anything crazy. Fabio told Howard that he was actually banned from the Playboy mansion because he used to sneak friends into the mansion in the trunk of his car. He was at one party where he brought in 3 friends of his to a costume party. He said that he thought he was going to be able to sneak them all in but the guards decided to check his car for some reason. They found the friends and he was banned from driving there in his own car and was told he could only come over on the bus that visits the mansion. Howard said that he's heard that when you want to bring a girl there you have to send them a head shot and tell them who it is. He said that the girls can be rejected from the parties they hold at the mansion. Fabio was just trying to do a favor for his friends by bringing them there. Howard said he would never risk not getting into the mansion by doing something like that.
Howard asked Fabio if he's still doing modeling. Fabio said that he's just doing endorsement deals now and no more modeling. He's got a clothing line for women out there as well so he told Howard about that. Howard asked Fabio if he's ever been offered money from a woman, to have sex with her. Fabio said that has happened and told Howard about what happened. He was hired to do some modeling by this woman and she was going to give him a little extra for sex. He turned it down though. He didn't want to say how much money he was offered. Howard and Robin tried to get it out of him but he wasn't going to give in. Howard read that Fabio has settled down with a woman but Fabio said that he was with a woman for 2 and a half years but they're no longer together. Howard wondered what happened with the relationship. Fabio said that they just fell out of love. He asked Howard what happened with him and his wife. Howard said his wife just told him that he had to shape up or ship out after seeing him sitting around like a lummox all the time. Fabio told Howard and Robin that he just broke up about a month and a half ago and hasn't had sex since then. He has to pleasure himself and claims that he just watches Howard's E! show to get off.
Fabio told Howard about how great it is when he visits the offices of the Oxygen Network because the place is full of hot women. Howard said it's the same way over at Sirius. Fabio has a new show on the Oxygen Network so Howard gave him a plug for that. The show is called ''Mr. Romance'' and Gene Simmons is the executive producer of the show. Fabio said they teach guys how to treat women by showing them how to romance them. They take 12 guys and they all try to win a $50,000 grand prize. Howard asked Fabio if they teach guys how to tell a woman that she stinks down below. Fabio just laughed at all of those types of questions. Artie jokingly said that Fabio probably just rolls over and bangs the other chick he has in bed if one chick is smelly.
Howard gave Fabio a plug for the show and then took some phone calls for him. One guy asked Fabio if he would do a remake of ''Twins'' with Artie. Howard thought that would be funny but Artie thinks that they'd need someone like Matt Damon to play him in the movie. The guys somehow got on the subject of oral and Howard asked Artie if he kisses Dana after she does that to him. Artie said he avoids it and kisses her on the forehead. Howard said he goes out of his way to make sure he kisses her after that because he feels bad for her. Fabio said that he does the same thing as long as it's a girlfriend. Howard mentioned that Fabio's show is ''Mr. Romance'' and it airs on the Oxygen Network on Monday nights at 10pm. He spent a short time talking to Artie about how he doesn't seem to be all that physical with Dana when he's out in public. Artie said he may not be like that all the time but that just makes it all that much more special when he does. Robin said that Artie is too busy keeping his hand on the Jack and waters he has. Howard also asked Fabio if he's ever been with a famous woman before. Fabio said there may have been a famous woman but wouldn't say who it was. Fabio said he likes normal women like Robin. Howard wrapped up a short time later.
Howard brought up Peter Jennings again and talked about the reports of his lung cancer. Howard played the rest of the audio he started to play earlier in the show. Howard was kind of surprised that Jennings was reading the statement he was making on the news last night. He wondered if those guys ever do anything without a teleprompter in front of them. Howard seems to think that Jennings is finished and he probably won't be back after the chemotherapy. Howard talked about some pictures he saw of Jennings house out on Long Island and how nice it looks. He said that if he had all of that, there's no way he'd smoke. Robin said she saw a report on E! recently about how a lot of the thin celebrities out in L.A. are smokers. Howard said he finds it hard to believe how many people still smoke these days.
Howard replayed the bit that Richard Christy put together where he was interviewing audio clips of Richard Simmons. He also played some audio of Simon Cowell on Oprah Winfrey's show promoting a band that he claims to have discovered. Howard said it just shows that the guy has no idea what he's talking about. In the clip Simon talks about how they searched around for four guys who were the best at what they do and he thinks they've found an amazing group. Howard played one of the band's songs and he thought it sounded like a goof because it was so bad. The guys goofed on that for a short time.
Howard read that Sean Penn is retiring for a few years to get away from the industry for a short time. He said he's kind of burned out and needs a couple of years off. Howard said that even if you are burned out, you don't tell regular people who go to real jobs every day, that you're burned out.
Howard read through some e-mail he's gotten lately. One person asked Howard not to catch fish and throw them back like he was doing last weekend. Howard said that he'll promise to catch and kill them from now on. He read through a few other e-mails and talked about their ''From a Lard Ass to a Hard Ass'' contest. Howard said they had another name for the contest but they weren't allowed to use it. It was supposed to be called ''Pig to a Fox'' but Tom apparently didn't like the use of ''pig'' referring to a woman.
Howard asked Tom if he thinks Peter Jennings should give up pleasuring himself like Tom did. Tom said that's all up to Peter and he will allow him to make his own decision. Tom gave up pleasuring himself after he went through his cancer battle. Artie said that is the one thing he wouldn't give up if he was going through chemotherapy like that. Tom told Howard that he tried to contact Peter Jennings through e-mail yesterday but he wasn't able to get through.
Howard took a call from a doctor who told the guys that the survival rate for lung cancer like Peter Jennings has isn't all that high. He corrected Tom about some of the stuff he was saying. Howard ended up playing a bit they had with a phony Tom Chiusano talking to people on a morality hotline about not pleasuring themselves. Sal the Stockbroker called in as Peter Jennings pleasuring himself and told Tom that he didn't know what he was missing. Howard had to wrap up and take a break after that.
Howard gave Bob a couple of plugs for his upcoming gigs which you can find out about at revboblevy.net. Howard asked Bob what it's like for his kid to have mom and dad living in different parts of the house. Bob said he hasn't told his 6 year old son that they're divorced. The kid thinks that they're just fine. Bob said they pretend that things are fine and continue to fight and go their separate ways. Artie said it sounds like a regular ''Jersey type'' relationship. Howard said his youngest daughter took it pretty hard when he divorced. Artie told Bob that it might be a good idea to let the kid in on the story. Bob said he's been through two marriages so far and now it's going to be all about him.
Howard heard that Bob still gets his hair cut by his ex-wife. Bob said that's true so Artie asked him who dyes the hair. Bob told him to stay out of it and said that at least he still has hair. He told Artie that he's losing his hair like a cancer patient. Howard said it must be pretty tough to live with Bob. Levy gave up his house to his ex-wife and he thinks he made it out of the marriage pretty good. Howard said he heard that Bob mixes up the jokes about his girlfriend and his wife when he's on stage. Artie told a story about how Bob keeps telling jokes about his mother-in-law who has passed away. Bob wasn't sure if he should take them out or not.
Bob said that Richard Christy has been doing stand-up comedy but it's just horrible. Bob said that Richard's act is so bad that it could stop a rape. He also said that he looks like a burnt cheese doodle when he's up on stage. Richard came in a short time later and said at least he doesn't have to eat cheese out of a woman's bad place. Bob and Richard talked about the stand-up act and shared some of the jokes that Richard does. Richard apparently spends quite a bit of time talking about his masturbation and stuff. Richard told one joke that didn't go over so well with the guys in the studio. He also jokes about his accent and some other stuff that wasn't all that funny. Howard let Richard go and got back to Artie and Bob. Howard said that Levy tries to book everyone on the show on his comedy gigs but Bob said that's not true, they call him. Bob said he's just waiting for the Will and Jason tour to come up.
Howard had Robin do her news reports so they could wrap up the show. Bob hung out and commented on some of the news stories that Robin brought up. Howard ended the show around 10:40am.
Howard started off the show playing some tape of himself throwing a tantrum while recording commercials the other day. The commercial didn't make a lot of sense so he didn't want to read it. The commercial was stupid and Howard said he thought it was written by an f'n a'hole. He eventually got back to it and read through the whole commercial even though he wasn't thrilled with it. The first line was ''If you're a slouch...'' which is something that Howard just wouldn't say. Anne Marie was in the studio with him at the time and tried to explain the commercial to him even though Howard was just asking a rhetorical question. He suggested that she not try to defend poorly written copy.
Howard played some audio of Paula Abdul talking about how hard her job is on American Idol because she has to ''keep it together'' and find the good in all of the contestants. The guys didn't buy that and Howard said they could replace her tomorrow on that show and no one would notice.
Howard had an audio clip of a CNN news report about the possibility of jail time for indecency. Of course they bring up Howard's name in those conversations. The CNN reporter doesn't bother talking about how insane it sounds to have a congressman trying to get jail time for indecency, they just take a poll on it. That led to Howard talking about how ridiculous it would be for him to be sent to jail for indecency while there are so many other shows on cable that are even dirtier than what he does. In the poll results the reporter read a couple of posts they got about what people think about the jail time. Someone suggested that maybe people should get community service or something like that. Robin said that those people should remember where they are. Howard said that 20 percent of the people polled think that he should go to jail for the indecency.
Howard played some more of his tantrum from that commercial recording session. He tried to fix the copy by making up his own stuff. He ended up taking a phone call from Bong Hit Bill who brought up last night's E! show and how ugly the guys were on the show when they were dressed up as women. The guys talked about how funny it was when Big John from Scores ended up falling for Dana the transvestite.
Howard took another phone call from a guy who brought up the indecency thing again so Howard talked about how crazy it would be to jail people for stuff like that. Howard said that if he was threatened with jail time for all these years, he wouldn't have been able to be creative and it's a good thing to be able to do that. He believes he was able to change the face of radio by doing what he's done. He had to take a break after talking about that for a short time.
Howard interrupted that discussion to talk about the reason they didn't embalm the Pope. Howard said that they think that if he doesn't decay, then he's a saint. Howard got back to the Cochran funeral pretty quickly after that. He played more of the Jesse Jackson stuff and he was rhyming like crazy. Howard had to listen to it a second time to hear the rhyming. Stevie Wonder performed a song but his voice cracked as he was starting out.
Howard brought up this new contest they have called ''From Lard Ass To A Hard Ass'' and talked about how there are women out there who may be like 10-15 pounds overweight but could be 10s if they just lost those pounds. That's the type of woman they're looking for in the contest. He said that whenever he sees Alicia Keys, he wonders why she doesn't just lose 20 pounds because she'd be really hot. He thinks she just needs to cut back on the food intake a little bit. Howard mentioned that the contest has a $10,000 grand prize. Howard asked for any women out there who want to be part of the contest to send in a 2 minute video of themselves. Howard and the guys will sit back and evaluate a few of them and pick out a winner.
Howard mentioned that he heard a story about Scott DePace that was kind of disturbing. They were talking about the Peter Jennings cancer thing yesterday. Howard said he was talking to Will about how he had Hodgkins disease when he was a little kid. Howard asked Will what it's like after you go through something like that. Will said that he does fear the cancer thing and when he gets a cold he wonders if the cancer came back. Will also said he can't have kids because the chemotherapy may have wiped out his sperm. Will told Howard that he told Scott DePace that he couldn't have kids so Scott responded with ''Eww, you're gonna have to adopt!'' DePace said that he never said that but Will told the guys that's exactly what happened when they were out playing golf one time. Scott said that he must have just been busting his balls at the time and he didn't mean it in a mean way. He apologized for saying it if he actually said it. The guys goofed on Scott for a couple of minutes. Howard also told Will that he could name the kid ''Eww'' if he does adopt. Howard played some more of the Kelly Clarkson song for Scott.
Howard played the number one song after that and said that it was 50 Cent's ''Candy Shop.'' He also took a call from Vinnie Favale who said that he's right about the Kelly Clarkson album and how it's unusual for a performer to have a second album that's a hit like hers is. Vinnie said he had sent Howard a version of Kelly's song that was performed by the guy who wrote it for Kelly Clarkson. Howard couldn't find it in his mail so Vinnie had to play it over the phone. It sounded kind of gay when the guy was performing it and Artie kind of goofed on Vinnie saying that he would cancel his trip to the Eagles concert tomorrow night if he could go see that guy perform. Howard said he was going to go to that concert but he didn't want to hassle anyone at the show by showing up. He said he'd be kind of stressed going to the concert so he's not going to bother even trying. He might just go out to Fran Drescher's party since she invited him.
Gary told a story about working with Joe when they shot a bunch of pilots for FOX TV many years ago. Joe Walsh kept asking him for alcohol while he was doing an appearance on the show. When Joe performed ''Rocky Mountain Way'' in the rehearsals it was great. By the time they did the actual shoot though, Joe was so wasted that he ended up picking up a trombone and playing it. The only problem was that he'd never played the instrument before. Howard remembered when Joe Walsh and James Taylor were on the show together and jammed on the song ''Goodnight Irene.'' They pulled that song out and played it for anyone who hadn't heard it before. He wrapped up after that and took another commercial break.
Howard mentioned that Artie had gotten a voice mail message from his mother after the show yesterday because of what he had talked about while Fabio was there. His mother left a message saying ''Great hooker stories on the show today... can't wait until you get to ''Eh, eh, eh'' so I can hear more of them.'' Artie said he talked to his mother yesterday and she was just busting his balls. Howard also played a clip from an answering machine message that the local Z-100 station left on Artie's machine. It was basically a commercial for a bit they do on the station. Artie said that Howard can't get through to him sometimes because of what he has on his phone but the Z-100 people can get right through. He's been able to avoid listening to the station but he can't avoid them on his own answering machine. The guys couldn't believe how fast the DJ talks and wondered how he gets through a day.
Howard played a new bit that they did with the Pat O'Brien audio clips. They used them to call a bakery and the woman on the line hung up after just a couple of lines.
Howard quickly mentioned that a friend of his had held a concert to raise money for the troops who are over in Iraq fighting for this country. The guy now has a web site where you can donate money to the fund as well. The money goes directly to the troops from what Howard said. You can find out more at SupportTheCorp.org
Howard had a caller from Fort Myers on the phone who is kind of upset that he has to wait 8 months for Howard to move to Sirius. Howard thinks that Infinity should drop him now so he can just move over there already. He thinks that the longer they keep him on the air, the more he'll be able to promote the fact that he's going over there.
Howard replayed the news report that he played about the possible jail time for indecency thing. He pointed out that CNN is owned by Time Warner who owns the Adult On-Demand that he uses at his home. He finds that kind of amusing since they're basically making it seem like Howard is the only indecent thing on the air. Another listener from Fort Myers called in and said he was pissed this morning when he found out Howard wasn't on down there. Howard explained to the caller about what had happened with Beasley and how it was the wackiest rationale for them to think they could kick him off in one market and call him indecent but then want to keep him on in another market, in the same state. The caller asked if he could play a game to stay on the air a little longer. Howard had a few games to play so Gary came in and gave them a few choices.
Howard had a few bucks to give away so he played a John the Stutterer game where he sings a song and everyone has to try and figure out what song it is. Howard played the first line and John was only able to stutter out ''Every.'' Howard and the guys seemed to think that it was ''Every Breath You Take'' but it could have been ''Everything She Does Is Magic.'' Howard said it could have also been their Backside Boys song ''Every Homo.'' They ended up playing that song before figuring out what it was that John actually sang. The guys talked about how funny the song was. Gary thought that Fred's remix today made it even funnier. Fred threw in some porn clips while it was playing. The phone caller guessed that John the Stutterer was singing ''Every Breath You Take'' because that's what Robin figured it was. They were right so the caller won $500.
Howard replayed some of the Pat O'Brien prank calls they've done lately. He also played some Kiefer Sutherland bits that they've put together using clips of him from ''Inside the Actors Studio.'' They have remixes of the interview, song parodies that Dan the Song Parody Man has worked on and more. Artie seems to think all of the Kiefer stuff is the greatest.
A woman who was on the show back in February called in to tell the guys that she's been trying to lose some weight since that's what the guys suggested to her. She said she's lost some inches on her body but not all that much weight. Howard told her to send in her submission for the ''From a Lard Ass to a Hard Ass'' contest and maybe she'll get in on that. He had to take a break right after that.
Howard read an article that ended up getting the delay hit. Howard managed to get some of the article out which was about a guy who tried to get out of a drunk driving charge by crapping himself and shoving the doody in his mouth to try and trick the breathalyzer. It didn't work according to the article.
Howard played an audio clip of Mel Gibson talking about Terri Schiavo on Hannity and Combs recently. Gibson said he has been in contact with the family and he believes that she wasn't in a vegetative state and they basically executed her by removing her feeding tube.
Howard gave Greg a plug for his upcoming gig at the Baltimore Improv and said he had to take a break but ended up talking to Greg about this radio guy Ted Brown who passed away recently. Greg knew the guy but didn't know that he'd died. Howard talked about how Ted Brown was kind of mean to him back when he was first starting out. The guy told Howard that he wasn't going to last 5 minutes in the city because he knew nothing about radio. Howard used to hammer the guy on the air. Howard's father ran into the guy one time and Brown begged him to ask Howard to stop hammering him so much. Howard got a call from his father who asked him to stop but Howard was glad to hear that the guy was upset about what he was doing because he was such a dick. Howard did stop goofing on the guy after that though.
Greg mentioned Stuttering John's name while they were talking about the Pope's replacement. Howard said he heard that they're not even letting John announce live anymore and they're pre-taping all of his stuff before the show. Robin seemed to find that funny but Howard said he's happy for John and didn't seem to want to goof on him. He took another break before getting to Robin's news.
Howard finished up the replay of the Johnny Cochran funeral tapes and also replayed Gary Garver's interview with Cochran that he'd played earlier in the show. Robin started her news a short time later. During the news a phone caller brought up the fact that the anniversary of Sam Kinison's death is coming up soon. He wondered if Greg ever hung out with Sam. Greg said Sam was before his time but did bring up the fact that the great Mitch Hedberg had passed away recently and talked about what a great guy he was. Greg said they're holding a memorial service in L.A. next Tuesday and one in New York City the week after.
Greg told a story about how he was caught pleasuring himself recently. He said he rented the movie ''Quills'' thinking there was some nudity in it. Greg said there isn't much nudity in the movie but there's one scene where Joaquin Phoenix has sex with a dead woman. It was the best Greg could get so he started to pleasure himself. As he was about to finish, there's a scene where Joaquin looks up at a Jesus statue on the wall and there is blood coming out of his eyes. That's when Greg's wife walked in the room, saw what was on the TV and said ''Congratulations'' and walked out of the room. Greg said they never talked about that again. Greg also told a story about how his wife is breast feeding since they have a young child. He had to help her relieve the pressure in her breasts one night because they were away from the baby. He told the story but the delay hits were chopping up the discussion like crazy. Greg basically said that he had to suck out about 5 ounces of breast milk and ended up having sex with her while he was doing it.
Porn star Savanna Samson called in during the news to promote an appearance so Howard put her on. She said she'll be dancing at Scandals in Long Island City on Friday and Saturday. Howard spoke to her for a minute before he had Robin get back to her news. They ended the show around 10:30am.
Howard started off the morning talking about an article in the paper about the Pope stuff. He said he really doesn't care all that much about it and he thinks that it's like rock star adulation and most people don't even know what the guy did. Howard read that this guy Bernard Cardinal Law from Boston is going to be leading the Pope's memorial mass even after he was involved in a sex scandal up there. There are some people who can't believe that they're letting him do that. The Pope was apparently pretty close to this Cardinal and that's why he's leading the mass. Howard said that it does kind of give that Shirley from GodHatesFags.com some credibility about some of the stuff she was screaming about the other day... even though she's vile according to Howard.
Howard read another story about an Australian guy who was arrested for having gay sex down in Fiji because it's apparently illegal down there. Howard pointed out that they're talking about locking people up in this country for just TALKING about gay sex or even farting too much. He said it's really unbelievable and even CNN is doing polls about it. Artie said that if Howard smoked they'd probably make it illegal to smoke. Howard read through the article about the guy who was arrested for having gay sex down in Fiji. The guy is apparently getting 2 years in jail for that. Howard said he also doesn't care about the Michael Jackson case but he saw a big headline that said a maid saw Macauley Culkin and Michael making out. Then he said he found out that the maid had tried to sue Jackson and tried to steal some stuff from Jackson's home so she apparently had some kind of axe to grind with the guy. Artie said that it really depresses him that he might be a child molester. Robin said that's because Artie cried at a Michael Jackson concert one time. Artie said he told his buddy that he was crying because of the weed they were smoking.
Howard said that he almost cried when listening to Joe Walsh's version of ''Desperado'' yesterday. He said some people thought it wasn't that great of a version of the song. Artie said Joe did leave out a whole verse from the song but it was still good. He had Fred put it on CD for him so he could take it home and listen to it and listened to it about 20 times. Howard replayed the song after that and Artie said it's one of his most favorite songs ever. Howard really likes it as well so they spent a couple of minutes trying to analyze the lyrics. Artie told Howard about the lyrics that Joe left out and ended up singing them for everyone.
Howard said that Fran Drescher and Joe Walsh would be stopping by today. Joe hasn't been on the show in like 11 years so it's going to be like a reunion show. The caller Howard had on the line said that he couldn't get tickets for the comedy show that Artie is doing up in Boston. Artie ended up telling the guy that he'd put his name on the list to get him in. That led to the guys talking about how great Boston is. Howard talked about how many hot chicks are up in Boston because there are so many colleges there. Howard went to Boston University up there and talked about some of the chicks he got while he was there. He claims to have gotten a model at one point but she just wasn't the right chick. He was the one who broke up with her even though he didn't have another girl as a backup. He said she was so hot that there was a lot of pressure while dating her. He said he had football players coming up to him and saying that he couldn't be dating that chick.
Artie said he tried watching the John Stamos show the other night and on the show he picks up two girls and had them back to his apartment. Artie said that's probably what his life is like for real. Howard said Ralph has been to John's house and he has chicks coming and going from his place all the time. Howard had to take a break after that.
Howard said that he's going to want people to sound like the voices he hears in his head and it's going to be tough to find people like that. He also said that they had to make up some stories for the scripts instead of using real stories from his life. There was one episode where little Howard has a gay experience but Howard didn't want to do that because it didn't really happen. He said it might be funny if it was a fantasy sequence about something he's afraid of but not something that really happens. Howard said he had to argue with the writer about the story and joked that he changed it to have Scott DePace as the guy on his knees. Howard claims that he's not homophobic but he can't imagine having himself doing stuff like that. There was also a scene where Howard's dad was having a back rub from a friend but he had to tell the guys that would never happen. His father is so removed from everyone that he doesn't even know his kid's names. Howard wrapped up that discussion because he had to take another break. He told the caller that he loves writing but he doesn't think that there's a book in the near future. He's got a life going right now and he doesn't want to spoil it by getting involved in something that takes up so much time. He said he's barely functioning at this point because he's so worn out from waking up so early. They went to commercial break a short time later.
Howard brought up the Pope thing again and talked about how disturbing it is that the guy is still laid out and rotting away. He said there is a ''Pope Cam'' that you can get through AOL but he can't remember his password to log on. Robin said that she and Sal were on IM watching the Pope Cam together. Howard didn't know that she did the IM thing so she's not on his list. Robin said that there were people trying to take pictures near the pope and it was like there wasn't a dead guy there. Some people are there praying while the other people are jumping around trying to take pictures. Howard is obsessed with the shoes that they put on the guy because they just don't go with the rest of the outfit. Howard said they look like $2,000 alligator shoes or something like that. He also said that he would like to have his picture taken next to the dead Pope if he had the chance. He said if he waited on line for 14 hours to see the guy, he'd want to dress him in a Santa outfit or something like that. Artie asked him if he would wait for anything for 14 hours. Howard said there's nothing he'd wait in line for 14 hours for.
Howard complained about Gary's breath stinking yesterday. He said he had to back away from him because it was so bad. Gary said he didn't know it was that bad. Will came in and told Howard that Gary's breath has been horrible for the past week and it's tough to take. Gary told Will that he should say something to him if it's that bad. That led to Howard talking about the news story he told yesterday about a guy who crapped himself after being arrested for being drunk. The guy then ate the doody to try and cover up the breathalyzer test. It didn't work though.
Howard replayed the interviews that Sal and Richard did out on the street about the possibility of having a black Pope. After that he said that he just got the FHM top 100 hot chicks issue and they seem to keep the same people on the list even though they're getting a little long in the tooth. He said there are people like Angelina Jolie, Alyssa Milano and a few others on the list who just don't belong. Howard said that Scarlett Johansen is on the list but she doesn't belong at number 9. Number 100 was Rosalyn Sanchez and she looked good to him. Artie said he did a movie with her and she was grossed out by him. Rebecca Romijn-Stamos was number 99 and she looked good in that picture but Howard thinks that the picture might be kind of old. Even Kelly Clarkson was on the list. Uma Thurman was on the list and Howard said he's not even sure it's her in the picture they show. Howard said that Mischa Barton from The O.C. is in there but he doesn't think she's all that hot. The Olsen Twins are on the list and Howard said he would do them. He claims that John Stamos could have gotten them to go out to dinner with them last night but he had a meeting to go to and couldn't do it. Howard said it might get messy if he ended up banging the two of them. He said he told Stamos to go ahead and bang those two since he's already banged just about every other chick out there.
Howard replayed the CNN report he played yesterday about the poll they were having about the possibility of jail time for indecency. He also had a clip of Joy Bahar defending Howard and Opie and Anthony on ''The View'' about the jail time for indecency thing. She said that we're fighting for democracy in Iraq but we're destroying it here in our own country. Howard and Robin thought that was a great statement that she'd just made.
Artie said that he just rented a great porn movie on his cable system called ''Where the Boys Aren't.'' He said the movie was pretty good. Howard had to take a break but Janks got in a plug for an appearance he's making tonight at some place in Blue Bell, Pennsylvania. He'll be doing Stern Show trivia so Howard asked him to give him some of the questions. Janks asked what Robin's middle name is and what Fred's real name is. Artie asked Janks if he knew his middle name. Janks didn't know it so Artie told him that it's Steven and his confirmation name is Anthony. That led to the guys asking about Janks' real name which is Tom Cipriano.
Howard took a call from a woman down in Ft. Myers, Florida where Howard is no longer being broadcast. He quickly told the woman why he's no longer on down there. Beasley Broadcasting put him on a couple of stations down there, one in Miami and one in Ft. Myers. When they took him off in Miami they stopped paying him and said that his show was indecent. Then the Ft. Myers station's contract came up for renewal but Howard turned it down because they haven't paid their bills from Miami. The woman pointed out that there's no way Howard could be considered indecent in a place like Miami. Howard said that people just don't think that they have to pay their bills even when they have a contract with him. The woman said that she hates that she can't hear Howard every morning and it's only been two days so far. Howard told her she'll be able to hear him in 8 months when he moves to ''Eh, eh, eh.''
Another caller said that he saw some pictures of Howard at Camp Welmet. Howard told the guy that some of the pictures of the girls on that site are girls he may have gotten back then. Howard ended up hanging up on the guy because he was talking a little too much, plus he had to take a commercial break.
Howard wanted to bring Fran in so Gary went out to get her. Howard said that Fran still looks good and was all proud of herself when she came walking in. Howard brought up the dog thing and Fran claims that she has always brought the dog around with her. She used to have a dog by the name of Chester who died but this new dog is Ester. Howard talked to Fran about the young boyfriend she had and how they broke up. Fran said that she hasn't found another guy yet and that guy is still her muse. Howard said that the guy looked like a boy toy to him and he was 16 years younger than she is. Fran said she doesn't think so much about age when she picks a man. These days she thinks that she should find a guy who is successful, like she is. Howard said he got a call from her a couple of months ago and she told him that she's dating men who are successful now. Howard took that as meaning she wanted to date him. Fran said that she might not even want to get into a relationship and maybe she's got to have that booty call thing going.
Howard said Fran would be good for him because she can't have kids. Fran told Howard that she has dated some guys since her break up. There was one guy who was a doctor but when she showed up he was much older than she expected and he told her that he stays in ''grandpa's room'' when he goes to visit his son in another state. Fran said that she would think about dating a guy who has kids as long as they're a little older. Fran said that she's got a good F-buddy right now so she can get laid when she needs to. She said she doesn't sleep with her ex-boyfriend but she has kind of put out the offer for him. He apparently doesn't want anything to do with that. Fran isn't doing her ex-husband anymore either. She said that her F-buddy is a retired basketball player but she wouldn't say what his name was. She said he is a black guy though. That caught Howard's attention and he seemed kind of surprised at that. He asked her if she's ever gone anywhere with the guy and found that she was the only white person in the room. She said that hasn't happened. Howard asked her if he's got white features or if he's really black. She said that he's very dark and not all that tall. He's actually shorter than Howard. He wondered if Fran was trying to find out where he was at in his relationship when she called him a couple of months ago. She said she would never come between a man and another woman.
Howard gave Fran a plug for her new show that starts tonight on the WB network. The show, ''Living with Fran,'' airs tonight at 8:30 and 9:30. She told Howard a bit about the show and what the story will be like. Howard thought Fran wasn't wearing a bra this morning but she said she actually was wearing one. She was also asked if she was wearing panties. Fran said she was wearing a g-string. Howard is going to her premiere party tonight and skipping The Eagles concert. He asked Fran if she's going to ''bring her black'' with her to the party. Fran said that she doesn't think she'll be bringing him.
Howard took a phone call from a guy who asked her if she's let the guy hit her in the rear yet. She said she's not into that stuff and hasn't done that. Bong Hit Bill called in and asked Fran if she smoked a little bud. Fran said she has done that in the past but it's not a regular thing. There were times when she was a ''wake and bake'' but it's not like that anymore. She said she got this thing called The Vapor that just heats up the weed you have in the bowl but it doesn't burn it. She seems to like it but said she can't do it as often since she got sick.
Howard asked Fran if her parents are freaking out since she's dating a black guy. She said her parents are proud of her and don't care if she dates a black guy. Fran was once raped by a black guy so that's kind of surprising. Fran talked a little bit about how she still has to talk herself down about being scared of being raped again when she's in her own house since that's what happened.
Howard wondered what time she should show up to this party of hers tonight. He figured he'd show up around 9:30 and she was fine with that. Howard told her he was going to show up to the party in black face tonight but he was just joking around. Fran said that her uncle Stanley is going to be at the party and she hopes that he doesn't bother Howard too much. The band The Black Eyed Peas will be there as well as Mario Cantone, the guys from Queer Eye and some other people.
Fran told Howard about something that ended up getting censored out. She was talking about a sex party or something like that but the delay hits were chopping it up so much that we didn't hear it. Howard wrapped up the interview after that and went to break.
Joe said that he didn't stay in contact with Howard and the guys because he had a lot of stuff to get over and had to keep himself sober. He said he's now been sober for just over 11 years. He claims he came pretty close to dying because of the drinking. Joe said that he was just having fun like a rock star would. Howard thought that Joe looked good for his age and he was amazed at that. Joe told Howard that he has gotten kind of spiritual over the years.
Joe told Howard that he never planned for grandmothers to be at their shows so that's something he has to get used to these days. He said that they throw up their panties, which are actually Depends, on stage. Joe also told Howard that he ended up getting married and having a couple of kids. Robin was shocked by the news that he'd gotten married. The kids are now 10 and 6 years old. Howard wondered if they realize how great Joe is. Joe said that he thinks they wish that he'd be home more. Artie said hello to Joe and reminded him that they did a sketch on MAD TV back when he was on it. Artie played the owner of an Air Guitar store and Joe came in to play some air guitar. Joe actually refused to come back and shoot the scene that night so they had to shoot the scene during rehearsal.
Joe told Howard that The Eagles have been working on a new album for about the past 30 years now so he's not sure it would ever come out. Howard said the whole record industry is kind of weird right now. Joe said there is no industry and it's tough to get anything played. Howard said that satellite is playing a lot of new stuff though. Joe said he doesn't know what he would do if he was just starting out as a musician these days. The guys told him he'd have to be on American Idol. Howard asked Joe if any of the new guys out there are jamming with him. Joe said there is a guy by the name of Wes who jams with him... and he's in ''that band'' that Howard should know. Howard didn't have any idea who he was talking about though.
Howard asked Joe about his wife and how old she is. Joe told him to ask Smokey because he wasn't sure. Howard went on to tell a story about Joe making an appearance on a FOX pilot they were shooting years ago. Joe ended up drinking so much that he slept through the shoot. Gary said they looked all over for Joe and ended up finding him in a crate they had in the studio because there was a pillow in there. Joe told Howard that he doesn't even smoke cigarettes anymore. He talked about his spirituality and how he does believe there is a god but he's not into religion. He said that God does for him what the alcohol did for him but it takes a lot longer to get there.
Howard took some phone calls for Joe after that. One guy brought up that version of ''Desperado'' that Joe performed on the show years ago. Howard said he still plays it to this day and it still causes controversy. Joe said it didn't almost get him fired like they thought but there were some grumblings from the band about it. Joe also talked about how he misses Sam Kinison from the old days. Howard said that Joe would have had to have stopped hanging with Sam if he'd kept up the drug use and all of that stuff. Howard thinks that Sam would have had to have given up the drugs to stay alive himself though.
Joe's buddy Smokey used to hang out with John Belushi and try to keep him off the drugs and stuff. It wasn't an easy job though and John would sneak away from the guy so he could go out and do coke and stuff. Artie said that when you're doing coke you will do anything to get it. Joe said that's true and he would do anything. Gary came in and asked Joe about that Desperado thing again and if it caused any problems in the band. Joe said that it really didn't but he had left a message for Gary years ago that they replayed today. Joe was really pissed at Gary after that for some reason and they're not sure why he was so mad.
Vinnie Favale from CBS called in and asked Joe what kind of money he thinks he made from co-writing the song ''Life in the Fast Lane.'' Joe said he really has no idea what kind of money he makes because he has a guy who takes care of that stuff for him. Another caller asked Joe about how he almost got killed one time when he went alligator hunting with a friend of his. Joe told Howard that they went hunting and found a really big gator that they ended up shooting about 9 times, which really pissed off the gator. Joe said the gator hopped in the boat so he hopped out of the boat, into the water with more gators. He said he didn't think much about it before hopping into the water. Another caller told Howard how great Joe and The Eagles are and he should skip the Fran Drescher party to go see them perform tonight. Howard ended up telling a story about Joe playing a joke on him at a gig one time. Joe taught Howard how to play some chords and told him that they'd keep him unplugged. Howard agreed to do it but Joe ended up keeping him plugged in and turned the amp up to 10 so he was the only one the people heard.
Captain Janks called in and told a story about Joe. He said he saw Joe order a drink and when the waiter came over with the drink, Joe sneezed on the guy's hand, and the drink and then told the guy he didn't want the drink because he didn't want to get sick. Janks said that it was the funniest thing he's ever seen. Janks also asked Joe to play some stuff for them. Joe said he brought his guitar with him so he could play something. Joe wanted a smaller amp than the 100 watt amp they had there. Fred told him they had an acoustic that he could play if he wanted. Joe said he'd play both. Howard played the version of ''Goodnight Irene'' that Joe and James Taylor performed on the show years ago. Howard said the song really moves him and Joe should get together with James and record something. Joe ended up performing a little bit with the acoustic guitar he had. He then took some requests from Janks and ended up playing some ''Life's Been Good To Me So Far.'' He made up his own lyrics and said ''Those Lakers suck without Shaq'' which cracked the guys up. Howard wrapped up after that and went to commercial break.
Howard got Mike Walker on the line next. Mike wasn't there immediately but he did get on the line a few seconds later. Howard was hoping to hear Mike yelling at someone on the phone or something but that didn't happen. Howard tried to move on to the game right after giving him a plug for his book ''Rather Dumb : A Top Tabloid Reporter Tells CBS How to Do News.'' Artie said that they were going from ''Cool to Gay'' by going from Joe Walsh to Mike Walker. Howard asked him why he has to do that to Mike. Mike got in a plug for the new and improved ''National Enquirer'' which is now thicker and has more pages in it. Mike told Howard that they have pictures of Michael Douglas' face lift and it looks pretty bad. He said there's blood seeping from his face and his eyes are blackened. The stitches are out of his face but you can see blood on his shirt in the pictures. Howard had Mike get to the game after that so 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:
A listener from Ft. Myers, Florida called in and told Howard that the station down there is claiming that he's not renewing contracts at this point because he's moving to Sirius at the end of the year. Howard said the real reason is that the company wasn't paying their bills for their contract with him in Miami so he decided not to renew with them for the rest of this year because they're not treating him right. Howard said he's being honest about this stuff and that company is telling their listeners a bunch of B.S.
Howard had Robin finish up her news and ended the show around 10:25am.
