Howard finally made it back and said they had to reboot something to get back on. He said he has to do the same with his TV. He said he was watching ''Zero, Zero, Zero'' on Amazon and his TV started giving him messages that the signal was going in and out. He said he spent so much money on that audio system. He said within a week he was being told it was old equipment. He said he went all in on that audio/video in his house. He said he has had the worst time of it.
Howard said he has been keeping his fingers crossed with the TV but he has to reboot them every day. He said he's praying the washing machine holds up during quarantine. He said he's thinking it's going to go 18 months and they're only one month into it. He said he went to his house on March 12 and he hasn't seen anyone since. He said they bought a Roomba vacuum and he got annoyed with it. He said there were no directions for it. He said it's a robot that vacuums your house. He said it's out of the Jetsons. He said it's like something from the 1960s. He said it does a damn good job of it. Robin said she was going to ask about it today. Howard said he had a Great Garloo robot when he was a kid and it was nothing like a robot. He said this thing is like a real robot. He said it's crazy. Robin said it remembers where it was. Howard said he has an app with it and he had no information with it. He said some of his directions must have been thrown out.
Howard said he called the help line with the Roomba and got someone there to help. He said there's nothing clear online about it. He said he was going to bash them on the air but once it was set up it was fine. He said he got it set up in seconds. This Roomba comes out of its base and maps out the room. He said he figures things out in the room. He said you're supposed to name it but he won't do it. He said Beth is in love with this thing. He said it was cleaning and doing it better than anyone. He said this thing is mind blowing. Robin said she never thought it would work.
Howard said he and his wife sat in the room with Roomba and watched it. He said he thinks it may be fucking with his TV though. He said he can control it right now and tell it to vacuum upstairs. Robin said she heard you can tell it when to do it. Howard said this thing was taking like an hour and a half to clean the room. He said he went for a walk and it got stranded and didn't make it back to its base. He said the thing knows how to get over the rug that it gets caught on. He said whoever invented this thing is a genius.
Robin said vacuuming is horrible. She said she has to get a Roomba. Howard said Beth broke the vacuum within the first week. He said she ripped it out of the wall and it cracked.
Howard said Roomba is amazing. He said you have to carry it upstairs. He said they're just using it for the bedroom right now. He said the cats are petrified of it though. He said their cat Pebble will attack anything but she headed for the hills when she saw this thing. He said Helen is fearless but even she wouldn't come into the room. He said she freaked out and fell out of his arms so he thought he hurt her.
Howard said their carpet sparkles now. He said he loves having a robot. He said he never thought he'd have a robot. He said they say they have a Roomba for your lawn too. He said it's not made by Roomba though. He said his mind was blown by this thing.
Howard said this thing docks itself in a base and then it empties the bag. Robin said she has to get one. Howard told her to pick up cat toys and stuff or it'll pick them up. He said if you don't see Fred today it's because he got picked up by Roomba.
Howard took a call from a guy who said he got one of these things a couple of weeks ago. He said he named his ''Girlfriend.'' Howard said he thinks of his as a dude. The caller said he has one of those lawn mower things that mows by itself. He said that's what he considers the dude.
Howard said this thing got caught on the rug and it got over it itself. He said it never gets stuck. The caller said that if it does get stuck it will notify you on the app.
Howard said he didn't name his Roomba. He said he could do that right now. He said the only problem is that the cats are freaked out by it.
Howard asked JD if he has a Roomba. JD said he has a knock off of it but it's not as good. Howard asked if it has a docking station. JD said they do but you have to empty it themselves. Howard said that blows. JD said he has to constantly kick the thing to get it moving again.
Howard said they have a vase on a stand and the Roomba encountered it and it figured out how to get under it and clean it. He said they also have a skirt on the bed and the Roomba figured out how to deal with that. He said it went under and cleaned and then came out before it was done. then it went back under and finished. He said this thing is great.
Robin said she has this big vacuum and it practically sucked a rug into itself. She said she had to stop vacuuming. Howard said this was the highlight of his month. He said he had Beth come in to watch this thing work.
Robin said she had to figure out how to use her washing machine. She said she didn't know where to put the detergent so she had to figure it out online. Robin said on the dryer it figures out by itself that the laundry is dry. She said that's amazing to her.
Howard got fake Donald Trump on the phone and talked to him about what's going on lately. Fake Donald sounded kind of down according to Robin. Fake Trump said that FOX is acting like CNN lately. He said they're not grading him properly like they should be.
Trump said no one can do a better job than him. Howard asked how he knows. Trump compared himself to Obama during the Swine flu and other things. He said they're doing a better and tougher job than Obama or Bush ever did. He said they're turning a huge problem into a success story. He said he thinks this might be the Chinese and the Democrats teaming up against him by creating this virus.
Howard asked Trump how Melania is doing. Trump said she's a great first lady. He said she's got great talent and she's a great role model. Trump said their passion has never been stronger during this thing. He said his marriage is stronger than ever. He said he thought by now he'd be on to wife number 4.
Howard asked if Melania is giving him everything he needs. Trump said that it has been good for his marriage. Howard asked how he feels about her turning 50 this year. Trump said they're looking into things. He said he can't get divorced at this point but 50 is the max.
Howard asked Trump about what he thinks about Mike Pence. Trump said faith is important to him and his base. He said Pence is a hard worker and he's been putting in almost 40 hours a week on this Coronavirus thing. He said he got him for the evangelicals. He said they now trust him. He said Pence has a secret weapon. He said he's closeted. He said they call him BGMP (Big Gay Mike Pence). He said he's kind of like Pete Buttigieg and he might be secretly winning over the gays.
Howard said this Dr. Fauci is saying if they had gotten on this thing quicker we could have beaten Coronavirus. He said now he hears that Trump is talking about firing him. Trump said these guys like to get on the microphone and have people look at them. He said these science people are like that. He said he doesn't need this guy contradicting him. He said he knows science like he does so he can do what he does. He said he could have told people to social distance in 2017 but he has to run a country.
Howard said Trump is kind of like Einstein but he gets hot chicks. He said a lot of people are praising Andrew Cuomo there in New York. Trump said he has been very gracious but he thinks Cuomo thinks he's tougher than he really is. He said he thinks he could lighten up a little bit like he has. They spent a little more time joking about the Cuomo thing.
Howard asked how his Easter was. Trump said he has strong faith and it's very important to him. He said this is when Jesus was born and this is very important to celebrate. Robin said Jesus wasn't born on Easter. Trump asked if she was there. Howard said she wasn't so he's right. Trump said some people are against him no matter what. Howard asked what his favorite thing is about Jesus. Trump said he loves that he was a blue collar worker as a carpenter. He said he was nice but he wasn't very strong. He said he could have been a little tougher. Trump said that Howard has said some not so great things about him. He said he's glad he still has some respect for him.
Howard said he can't believe he gave so much power to Jared Kushner. Trump said he wanted to have a guy who was part of a big real estate company join his family. He said he's no Trump. He said he's not even his father. He said he's kind of weak so what he's doing is putting him in a position to fail so he embarrasses himself and he ends up leaving his daughter. He had some jokes about his daughter still giving him a rise at her age.
Howard thanked fake Trump for calling in this morning. Howard asked who his favorite comedian is. Trump said he likes Nick DiPaolo and guys like that. Howard asked about J-L Cauvin. Trump said he's not a fan. Howard was trying to give the guy doing the impression a plug. Howard let fake Trump go a short time later. Howard said he was sharp as a tack today. He said he's being Christian. He said he really came down on J-L Cauvin though. Howard said he's going to take a break and get to more. He said tomorrow they will have an important call from Paul McCartney who will tell them what he's doing during quarantine.
Howard thanked Gardein for sponsoring their show today. He talked about how good their food is. Howard said they'll play a phony phone call during the break. He said they called a sports show and this guy lost it because of all of the questions they were asking about sports. Howard played that as they went to break.
Howard came back and talked about the great Perry Farrell who is one of the best lead singers in music. Beth came in and had an accident. Howard said she came in and tripped. Howard said she's going to end up killing herself. He said she brought him some water and she almost killed herself. Beth started to crawl in again so he told her not to do that. He said just get up for one second. Howard said her whole asshole was out. She spilled water all over the floor. Howard said she's going to end up hurting herself and going to the hospital.
Howard asked Beth about how much she loves her Roomba. Beth said she does love him. Howard asked if she has any message of hope for everyone. Beth said things are getting really serious now and things are very tragic and bad. She said she's not so optimistic now. Howard asked if the water boiling noise is bothering everyone. Robin said it's fine. Howard said his thoughts are getting to Beth finally. Robin said they can't do this for 18 months. Howard said when he's the upbeat one they're in real trouble.
Beth asked Howard not to put this on anywhere. Howard asked her for a kiss before she left. Howard got that and let her go.
Robin asked if they have toilet paper. Howard said they do. He said Beth doesn't shit and he has a Toto toilet so he is saving a lot. He said he uses 3 dabs to dry off and that's about it. Robin said she's wondering about their abilities to manufacture things. She said there are a lot of things that they're missing. She said she has toilet paper but there must have been a restocking of it. She said the 3 rolls she was getting disappeared. Howard said she might have to wash her ass in the sink like Ronnie. Howard said he's in fear that his Toto is going to die and he won't be able to wash his ass.
Howard said this whole thing is so crazy. He said they have food and he microwaves whatever it is for 20 seconds to burn off the Coronavirus. Robin asked how it's getting there. Howard said it probably loves the cold. Robin said it loves the cold and dry, not damp. Howard said hot salad is no good. He said that's one thing he learned.
Howard said Beth does everything around there. He said she hates the way he cleans. He said it's kind of great. Robin asked how bad he could be. Howard said she just thinks she can clean better. He said he takes shortcuts so she doesn't like that. He said he is in charge of cleaning his fruit. He said he's not sure it even works. Robin said she found out baking soda works for everything. Howard said he stocked up on that and he's the only one eating the fruit so he takes care of that. He said he has a setup and he has a way of cleaning. He said he goes through this process and he has it down. He said Beth asked for some grapes in her salad so she asked him to clean them. He figured now he was needed so he had her show him the grapes. He said she did that and there were like 30 on a stalk. He said he did his cleaning process and they went for a walk and he forgot about the grapes. He said they were in there for over an hour. He said the grapes looked like raisins by the time she got them in her salad. He said it ruined the grapes. He said he told her he did everything right. He said the Roomba was laughing at him.
Howard said the grapes looked like Larry King's balls. He said it was a mess. Robin said he ruined her salad. Howard said he used Clorox on the outside of his oranges. He said he doesn't know what else to do. He said Tom Hanks hosted Saturday Night Live and he looked great. He said he was able to get through the Coronavirus thing.
Howard said Sal's parents had Coronavirus and now his dad has to be on oxygen for the rest of his life. He said he's supposed to be quarantined but he snuck out to play some numbers in the lottery. He said he snuck out without his oxygen tank. Robin said the only thing he should be going out for is for the antibody test to see if he has immunity.
Howard asked Sal if he has that right. Sal said he does. He told Howard that one time his dad won the lottery and he was going to give the kids all $2000 and he went out and spent the money the next week on more lottery tickets.
Howard said he heard Sal is vaping more than ever. He said that's compromising his lungs and he could get sick and die from it. Howard asked if his wife hates him now. Sal said things are fine. He said that it does feel like he's on a job interview whenever they talk. He said they have been going out bike riding together.
Howard said he heard that Sal is happy that he's saving money not buying makeup and hair product right now. Sal said he's not driving and he is saving on tanning cream. He said his kids noticed his bald spot for the first time. Howard said his big expense is his vaping stuff. Sal said they're gouging vape juice now. Howard said he won't yell at him about that.
Howard said Sal's dad says he's home and not out playing the numbers. He took a call from fake Tony Governale who said he wasn't out of the house but then you could hear him asking for lottery tickets at the store. He said he's in better shape than Sal now. Howard let him go a short time later.
Sal said he had a Facetime for Easter and they had like 14 kids on there. He said it's crazy. Howard asked why they're so anxious to have celebrations with him if he abandoned them all. Sal said he's not sure. He said he has some sort of magnetic personality. Howard said it's wild that these kids love his dad after everything that went on. Howard said it must be that Governale Charm that they don't see with Sal. He said it skips a generation. He said Sal's kids have it.
Sal talked about the things his dad did to him growing up and the other kids hear about that and they think about his dad as the second coming. Howard said he thought his grandfather was a good guy when he was growing up but his mother told him about how awful he really was. He did his mother's voice telling him that story. Howard went on and on about how bad his mom had it as a child. He had his mother telling the story about being sent off to an orphanage and then coming home to clean the house for her father. He did his father's voice during that talk too. He had his parents talking about what it was like when they got married. Then he had them talking about how Howard and Robin are still doing the show on ''the machine'' now. He had his mother telling Ben over and over what was happening but he can't hear so she had to keep repeating herself.
Howard had his mother talking about how good Howard was as a boy. She said that she had to be tough with him and he knew she meant business when she talked. She said she never wanted to hear him say he was bored. She talked about Howard not wanting to go to day camp so she made him sit home and never say he was bored. He said he stayed in his room and never complained that summer.
Howard had his mother talking about going to summer camp and how much Howard loved that. Howard told her he has to go. His mom asked where he has to go because there's nowhere to go. Howard said he just doesn't want to talk to her the rest of the show. Howard kept going with his parents for a couple more minutes. He let Sal go after that too.
Howard said he went out for a walk and he saw some kids out in a group and they were all near each other and talking. He said they're not honoring the quarantine. He said they think they're fine but they're going to go infect some older person. He said they need to have a lock down to solve this thing like they did in South Korea.
The caller said someone in Detroit is spending the week taking down the hoops. He said basketball is the worst because you're sweaty and all of that.
Howard said Jon Hein is living in Manhattan now. He said he talked to him and Jon is pissed that people aren't social distancing. He said he walked his dog and people came over to pet his dog. Jon said people are out without their masks on too. He said people want to pet the dog but you can't do that. He said it drives him nuts. Howard said Jon is a mountain of rage.
Howard asked why he shaved his head. Jon said it was getting long. He said he made a mess of it so his wife and daughter had to help.
Howard asked what Jon does in the elevator now. Jon said he won't get on an elevator if someone else is on it. He said people will avoid him too.
Howard said he heard that in India they have cleared the air since everyone is under quarantine. He said he had a wild turkey in his yard and he's never seen one before. Robin said that's because here are no people out.
Jon said things are really weird on the streets. He said that bikers are out driving really fast on the streets because there's no traffic out there.
Howard asked if Jon is playing guitar now. Jon said he and his daughter are doing that together. He said he's horrible at playing it but he is doing it. Howard said he can't wait to hear his debut on the air some day.
Howard said he was thinking about Greta Thunberg the other day because of all of this stuff that's going on. He said she must be thrilled that there's less happening out there and it's saving the world. Robin said she did say that the world can get together and spend money quickly when it has to.
Howard said they say that the rats in the city are getting empowered because of this lack of people. Jon said that the playground he lives near is overrun with rats now. He said the geese are all over too and their shit is all over the place.
Howard asked if Jon is wearing a mask when he goes out. Jon said he does and he gets angry when people aren't wearing them. He said you're supposed to wear one to protect other people.
Howard said he's wearing a bandana when he goes out. He said it fogs up his glasses. Howard said he ordered some masks and they were made in China. Robin said they all come from China. She said that's where they all come from for the hospitals. Jon said he can't wear his glasses out because they fog up like that. Robin said there is a tutorial out there about how to do that without fogging them up.
Howard asked if he can wear the masks from China. Robin said of course he can. She said that she has a device coming to her that will kill the virus too. She said she'll let Howard know about that too.
Howard said there are a lot of conspiracy theories about how this virus is spreading. He said some people say that it's the new 5G cell towers. Howard said we need that though. Jon said people just don't believe that this is what it is. Robin said people believe everything they're told.
Howard read about some of the other theories about what this really is. He said people have to make something up to give them hope. Howard said Governor Cuomo is going to call in to talk to them in about 10 minutes. He said he has about 20 minutes to give them. He said he has a lot of questions for him. He said he has to deal with Trump and he has to lick his balls to get it. He said it must be chaotic.
Jon said Andrew Cuomo is on the cover of Rolling Stone. He said they want to know if he wants to be president and he says no but how do you resist? Howard said he thought he should have run last time. Robin said Biden didn't run until late and that's working out for him. Howard said he's going to take a break and get the governor on. Howard had fake Alex Jones on the phone first. He had Jones on to talk about his conspiracy theories. Howard spent a short time talking to him about how George Soros is taking the Coronavirus dead bodies to eat. Howard let him ago and went to break a short time later.
After the break Howard came back and took a call from Mariann from Brooklyn who thanked him for keeping them alive with the show. She said that she's so sorry for Gary and his family losing his father in law. Howard said he didn't hear that. Howard said he has to go and talk to Governor Cuomo.
Howard got Governor Cuomo on the phone and talked to him about what a great leader he is and how he's showing that during this whole Coronavirus thing. Howard asked if he's taking care of himself during this time. Cuomo said that it's hard to sleep during this time. He said you know people are dying every hour in the state and you want to do everything you can do. He said he asks himself what else he can do. He said he is being very careful. He said his brother Chris got the virus and he got smarter afterward. Howard asked what he's doing. Governor Cuomo said he was doing a lot of public appearances and he had to cut back on that. He said he is more isolated now. Howard asked what he's doing right now. Cuomo said he's in Albany working on a public briefing. He said he was traveling all across the state. He said he likes to go around the state but now he's cut back and traveling very little. He said he does a press briefing in the morning and does the work in the afternoon. He said at night he talks to the scientists and health care professionals about what to do next. He said they get the numbers for the deaths and all of that at night and then it starts all over again like Groundhog Day.
Howard asked if he feels this is going to go on for 18 months like he does. Cuomo said that there will be waves of resolution. He said they'll have fewer people dying and that will be an initial resolution. He said that unfettered panic has no place. He said they have figured out how to slow down the beast. He said they'll get the economy going again. He said that they won't have ultimate resolution until they have a vaccine. He said then it'll be a non issue. He said that's probably 18 months away.
Howard said he has a feeling he knows what he's doing and he's organized. He said he has been critical of Trump and they have him on tape saying this will be a big nothing. He asked if he's in touch with Trump every day. Cuomo said it's not every day but he does talk to him several times a week. He said he has put his hand out to deal with him and he has been good in delivering for New York since he put that hand out. He said they sent the Navy ship there and he has delivered for them. Howard said that's a genuine thing then. He said that it seems to be a genuine working relationship then. Cuomo said it's not perfect but they are working on it. He said they have taken shots at each other but they are working.
Howard asked if he thins that Trump is happy that his brother got Coronavirus because he works for CNN. Cuomo said he can be vicious with his attacks. He said he has felt the sharp end of the spears and he can attack himself. He said that he has a confrontational relationship with his brother. He said he would say that CNN always attacks him. He said he has personally attacked his brother and that's partially because of him and partially because of what Chris has said about him. He said Trump does ask how his brother is doing when they talk. He said part of it is politics and the way things are going in Washington.
Howard said Governor Cuomo is on the cover of Rolling Stone now and there are many women out there who are falling in love with him. He said even Robin is looking at him differently. Howard said this whole thing is so wild. He asked how the Rolling Stone thing came about. Cuomo said he didn't pose for a picture. He said he doesn't understand this whole thing either. He said he is just doing the same thing he has always done. He said it's who he is and that's how he operates. Howard said he wishes he had run for president. He said he's backing Biden but he wishes that he had run. He said he seems like the right choice right now. He said he thinks he would win in a landslide. Cuomo said he is just doing what he said he would do and when you do that you have no regrets. He said he tells his kids who are with him now that no regrets is what you should end the game with. He said that you want to honor your word and your commitment.
Howard asked when Governor Cuomo knew he wanted to run for office. Cuomo said he was in his late teens. He said his father taught him that it was an art form to be a public servant. He said that everything else is second to public service and when it's done right it makes a significant impact on people. He said he hasn't changed but the public's appetite has changed. He said that it's no longer a celebrity contest. He said they're seeing that this affects life and death.
Howard said he was never jaded about politicians. He said he sees that some people have a calling for public service. He said he sees that he admired that he chose this life of public service. He said everyone is so jaded but he believes that there are people who are in it for the right reasons. Cuomo said you have to be able to do the job too. He said the job today is life and death. He said we haven't seen that in a long time. He asked when government has had to do something that impacted your life. He said government matters. He said you need that leadership and that has been reintroduced to the public.
Howard said he sees these nudnicks who say they don't want government but they're the first ones to crack during a time like this. He said they need government and competent people in it. Cuomo said they don't want it until they need it. He said if the government doesn't do its job there then it will change the course of people's lives.
Howard asked who he talks to when he's under all of this stress. He asked if he has a shrink. Cuomo said he doesn't. He said he talks to everyone. He said he's wondering who is going to help him with this problem when 700 people died yesterday. He said no one can help you with that.
Howard said he sees people out congregating and not wearing masks. He asked why they're not getting the message. He said they're nudnicks. Cuomo said you will always have a certain percentage of those nudnicks. He said that they had projections saying that many more people would get sick and die. He said the numbers the White House had were different than what the other places were saying. He said that they had to get people to listen to what they were saying. He said New Yorkers were upset that they were going to disrupt their lives. He said he had to have people believe what was going to happen. He said they told them that and they had to believe it was necessary. He said the compliance has worked and changed the numbers. He said that it did work and people believed and acted responsibly.
Howard asked if there are things they don't tell people that are too scary to tell them. Cuomo said that he knew Howard was going to think that. He said that he has all of the experts on and he has them tell you what they know. He said Howard knows everything he knows. He said he has to believe that he has the same facts that he does or the ball game is over. He said everything he knows is what he has told the public.
Howard asked about how he's dealing with Mayor de Blasio. Cuomo said he has to do what he has to do for New York. He said anyone who can help him he'll work with. He said anyone who is contrary to that he will go against. He said that he can't have things happen that are mistakes. He said there are local officials around the state who think they know when schools and businesses should open and close. He said you have to do them all at the same time for the whole state and the surrounding states. He said this virus isn't operating within county lines. He said the entire regional workforce has the same rules. He said they're all working together. He said you can't have this disconnected policy. Howard said this is leadership. He said you can't have people making their own rules.
Howard said Governor Cuomo is making it happen. He asked if he's the only one who hasn't watched Tiger King because he has no time. Cuomo said he has seen excerpts of it because his daughter is around.
Howard said he wants to know if there is anything they can help him with. Cuomo said their voices are so important. He said we're fighting a virus and emotions on an individual level. He said people are frightened and anxious and stressed. He said that you're home and trapped and afraid to touch anyone else. He said the communication is as important as anything else. He said he's fighting distrust and depression. He said we are going to get through this. He said we will get through it in phases. He said you can't go from darkness to light. He said that they will get through it but it is hard. He said it's okay to say that you're scared. Cuomo said even he's scared. Robin said don't tell her that.
Cuomo said he's frightened for her mother and his brother. Howard asked how his brother is. Cuomo said his brother is like Superman. Howard said he must not have been hit that heavy. Cuomo said he did get hit heavy. He said the day he was diagnosed he went on that night from his basement. He said that's guts. He said he went on that night and that really showed him who his brother really is.
Howard said he never wanted a brother because he never wanted to share his mother with anyone. He said that Andrew and Chris has a chemistry that is really sweet. Cuomo said that it's also genuine. He said he doesn't have an alternative. He said it's pure and genuine. He said his brother is a funny guy.
Howard asked if Chris was a burden to him when he was growing up. He asked if he felt that way when his father was governor. Cuomo said he is 13 years older than Chris and he felt for Chris because his father was very busy. He said he was somewhere between that brother and father role. He said it was a lot to handle. He said he was always helping his father who was very obsessive about his job. He said Chris was left at home and he felt for him and his plight. He said balancing all of that was a lot. He said he's a very special human being.
Howard asked if he resented his father for not being there for his brother. Cuomo said he doesn't think he realized it at the time. He said his father had him managing his campaign when he was 23 years old and that was like life and death. He said later in life he talked to him about it. He said his father was doing God's work and that was 24/7 and everything else came second. He said that's why he was so good at what he did. He said he did it with every cell in his body.
Howard said Governor Cuomo is unbelievable at his job. He said he's doing great. He said he's not sure what their future is but he has to thank god every day for him. He said he was going to offer Robin to him. Robin said she's being sacrificed once again. Howard said she might be his girlfriend once this is over. Howard asked if he is lonely. Cuomo said that he is not. He said he has his kids with him and he's too busy to be lonely. He said there may come a time though. Howard asked if he's on any dating sites. Cuomo laughed. Howard said please take care of yourself and he just wants to say thank you. Cuomo thanked Howard and Robin because they need their voice too. Howard said he was the one who passed the law to stop people from declawing their cats. He said he has to thank him for that too.
Howard said when this is all over he'd love to get him in the studio and talk to him at length. He said he won't burden him with them now. He said he'd love to sit down with him at some point. Cuomo said Howard intimidates him because he gets people to open up. He said he'll take a rain check on that. Howard asked if he has cried during this crisis. Cuomo said yes. Howard asked at what point. Cuomo said he can't get over the death numbers and he can't rationalize it. He said the health care workers are heroic and they're doing what they can but he can't get past those numbers.
Howard asked how many cell phones he has. Cuomo said he only has one but he has people around him with phones ringing all the time.
Howard asked how hard it is to get through to Trump. Cuomo said it's surprisingly easy. Howard said he likes to hear that. Howard asked if he's drinking at all. Cuomo said not since this whole thing started. He said he's not going to be in a diminished position at this time. Robin thanked him for his selflessness. Howard said Robin is hitting the sauce hard.
Howard asked if he's working out at all. Cuomo said he has been lifting weights and the treadmill but not that much because he doesn't have a lot of time. He said this will ease up and that wave will slow. He said that he thinks things will change and they just have to get through that.
Robin asked if the curve is flat. Cuomo said it is at a plateau. He said it has flattened but it still means that 700 people have died for the past 5 or 6 days. He said that the admissions to the hospitals are flat but that still means that thousands are going to the hospital every day.
Howard asked how he feels about these politicians and people who said that they have to let people die. He said he thinks that they'll be different when it's their mother or father. Cuomo said they will be. He said it's not easy. Howard let Cuomo go a short time later.
Howard said that is the governor of New York. Robin said what a position to be in. Howard said he met him at Dan Clores' house. He said he told him he'd be a great president. He said he has a natural style and people relate to him. Howard said he thinks he was waiting to see what Biden was going to do and if he hadn't gotten in then maybe Cuomo would have run.
Howard said he could end the show where. He said he could read some fan feedback. He went into some fan feedback and talked about the feedback they got about the Tom Brady interview last week. Howard said he called him after the show and thanked him for doing the interview. He said he's not writing notes anymore after that John Mayer thing.
Howard said he told Tom that he did a great job and Tom said he will be there any time they want him. He jokingly said he'll be playing Win Fred's Money tomorrow.
Howard said they got a lot of feedback about Gary's father in law dying. Howard said he got a note from an RN who said they hug their patient and she wanted Gary to know that.
Howard asked Gary how his wife is doing. Gary said she's alright. He said the funeral was on Saturday and it was way worse than they thought it was going to be. He said they took the casket out of the car and it was covered in a bag. He said Mary said it looked like they were throwing out the garbage. Gary said someone said it sounds soulless and that's what it was. Howard said maybe they can have a proper funeral after this whole thing is over. Gary said that could be in a year. Howard said it could be 18 months.
Howard got High Pitch Erik back on the phone and asked why he's taking Uber. Erik said he can't drive his car and he has to go out for things. He said he has to go to CVS and to Lowe's for things. Robin said he could order them online. Erik said don't be feeble minded. He said if he orders anything it'll take until the end of the month. Robin said CVS will deliver. Erik said there are certain types of prescriptions that he has to pick up himself.
Howard had Shuli on to get an update on Erik. Shuli said Erik has been to Best Buy. He said he had to get a new modem. He said he has an apartment filled with junk food. He said he just ordered a drink mixing machine for his bar. He said it makes mixed drinks for you.
Howard asked Erik why he's still drinking soda during all of this. Erik said he's not going to get Coronavirus. He said he's self quarantining. He said he's wearing a mask and gloves.
Shuli said he asked him if he wanted him to come over and help with the kids. Robin said he's not quarantining at all. Robin said by the time this is over they won't be able to get Erik out of the apartment because he'll be so big.
Shuli said he has a woman who comes over to clean his apartment and he makes it sound like he has a big apartment but it's just one room. Erik said he will be in his living room playing his PS4. He said she's buying him some stuff today. He said she's getting him pots and pans and things. Howard asked if he's afraid of getting Coronavirus from her. Erik said he cleans everything she brings and she wears gloves and a mask.
Shuli said this is a one bedroom apartment and he has a huge refrigerator and a Craftmatic bed in there. He said it's thousands of dollars that he's spending over there. Erik said he'll go on Zoom one day and show him what he has there. Howard said he's even looking at what Shuli has. He asked what's going on in that room. Shuli said the house is trashed and the kids are running them ragged. Howard asked how old they are. Shuli said they're 10 and 5. Howard said he has friends who are going insane with the kids being home. Shuli said it is rough. His dog walked into the camera range so Howard thought it was one of his kids. Howard asked what kid of dog that is. Shuli said she's a Shorkie. Howard said Shuli is breaking up so he has to go.
Erik said he has to say one thing. He said that the Mayor was talking about how they should have the schools closed through the end of the year. He said that should be decided by the Governor. Howard tanked him and let him go after that.
Gary said he thinks something Robin said about him may have upset John. He said he had sent him a couple of nots saying he wanted to come on but then he ghosted him. Howard said he's not angry with John Mayer at all. He said John was right and he should have put more care into that note.
Howard said John is not in the wrong. He said he wishes he hadn't talked about it on a national show. He said they pointed out what an idiot he is. Gary said even Andy is upset that they did that. Howard said Andy didn't do anything wrong either. He said he's not angry with John or Andy. Gary said he thinks that John may have had enough and now he doesn't want to fix things. Howard said they're calling this Comma-Gate. He said John held on to that letter for 6 years and called him out on it on Andy's show. He said he has to apologize for not putting that comma in that letter. He said he won't make that mistake again. He said he's going to Zoom with a grammar teacher tonight. Robin said if John wants to come on the show she won't bring anything up.
Howard said Michael Rapaport left a voicemail where he was upset about them not checking in with him. Gary said he's doing fine and he's full of shit. Howard said he called Sal like 10 times. He played some of the voicemail he left for Sal. In the message he was yelling at them to check in with him but then his wife started yelling at him to help her clean the house.
Howard said tomorrow they'll hear from Paul McCartney. He said maybe they'll get to Michael at some point. He asked Gary how Michael is doing. Gary said he's fine. He said they're in touch and he seems to be fine.
Robin asked if Jon Hein is still doing his sports show. Howard said he's not and he's pissed about that. Howard asked Jon what the name of the show is. Jon said it was Loud Mouths on SNY. He said he's a regular employee and a freelance employee and none of the freelance employees are working there. He said that they're just airing a lot of old sports over there now. He said they're also playing a lot of E-sports there just to give people something to watch.
Howard got Michael Rapaport on the phone to ask how he's doing. Michael thanked him for calling and he wanted to give condolences to Gary about his father in law. Howard asked how long he's going to lay off calling him names. Michael said 3 days. He said he'll do it now if Howard keeps bringing it up. Howard asked Gary if he's upset about that. Gary said Michael is surprisingly nice to him off the air but once Howard puts him on he becomes an asshole.
Howard said he got a report that he texts Sal regularly and he did call Gary a gorilla in the past week. Michael said that he is in Los Angeles and he was behind when he revealed what went on with his family. He said he was going to call in and tell him to fire Gary last week. He said he was behind on the shows though. He said then he heard about what happened and pulled back.
Gary asked Michael what he should have done about getting Tom Brady on a good connection last week. Michael said he should have gotten him on a bicycle and ride down to Tampa to make sure that he had a good connection. Gary said they test out the signal the day before. He said people have shitty signals. He said on ESPN they played a game of HORSE and the connections were bad.
Michael said Howard let this scrawny goofball John Mayer goof on him. He said Robin held back. He said fuck that fucking goofball. He said how dare he get on the air and do that. He said he wants to belittle Howard. Howard said he did let him know that his grammar was off and he was right. Michael said he would never do that to Howard. He said John is a blow job for doing that. He said Robin didn't jump in on that. Gary said none of them helped the situation.
Michael said Gary should have done something. He called him names and Howard said that moratorium must be off. Howard said maybe Gary liked that comma attack on Gary. Gary said he is on Team Howard 100 percent. Michael said he should call him a goofy cover band looking fuck.
Howard said he feels that John was in his rights to do what he did. He said he should have put more care into that letter. Robin said read between the lines. Howard said he did send him a personal note and he chose not to keep it private.
Howard said he has to end the show. Michael said the fact that they're doing the show means a lot. He said he doesn't listen to any news and he forgets about what's going on out there. He said it means a lot to him and the other fans out there.
Howard said he lost control of his computer. He said it must be the people in the neighborhood using their internet. His audio cut out so he just said ''Goodbye!'' and ended the show around 10:25am.
Howard started the show talking about his opening song and wondering where the Rob Zombie version went. They had one with a Judy Garland singing ''Come on get happy'' in it.
Howard said Robin's voice and video are delayed. He asked them to cut it off. He said even more distracting is staring at himself. He had the guys fix that. He said this is a new reality for everyone. He said they have so many technical issues. He said the crew is working hard and everyone is working remotely. He said it's a miracle that they're able to do it at all. He said you tune in to see the late night shows and they're all taped earlier in the day. He said they're doing it live. Howard said they had technical issues with Tom Brady and everyone is blaming Derek Jeter.
Howard said he's operating on very little sleep today. He said he's filled with angst about the Paul McCartney interview today. He said when you have someone who changed music calling in you don't want to waste a minute with the guy. He said he knows he's calling in for a quick visit but he wants to ask him everything he can. He said he's like Beethoven or Mozart. He said he has to ask him everything so people in the future won't ask why he wasted time. Howard said he has a tremendous responsibility there.
Howard said he was up at 2 in the morning and he wrote down every question he has for Paul. He said he knows it's supposed to be a quick call but he's going to ask as many as he can. He said you think about his music and it blows your mind. He said they have that huge amount of material and it's mind boggling.
Howard said every album is packed with hit after hit. He played a bunch of The Beatles and Paul's songs. He said it's his responsibility to ask him questions about this music. He said this guy is alive during his time so he has to do this. Robin said a lot of times people are disappointed after someone dies because they never got to ask the questions that would have told you who they were and how everything happened.
Howard said you should see the questions he has. He said he has about 5 pages of questions. He said he was up at 2 and didn't go to bed until 4:30. He said he has a pad and pen he can write with that lights up.
Howard said they're supposed to have a half hour with Paul but he has to keep asking his questions as long as he'll answer them. He said people want to know.
Howard said it's too much responsibility for him. Robin said he has the questions written down. Howard said he'll call in and he'll deal with it. He said he's in England somewhere. Robin said it's later in the afternoon for him. Howard said he forgot about that. He said that's good. Howard said he's very excited to talk to Paul even if it's on the phone.
Howard said Governor Cuomo said that they flattened the curve but 700 people still died that day. He said it's a crazy virus. He said Ali Wentworth got it and she was sick as a dog laying in bed for 14 days and her husband has it and he has no symptoms. Robin asked if he was on TV working. Howard said he was. He said she was sick as a dog and George is fine. He said Beth is in touch with Ali and he's worried about her. He said George is on Good Morning America today and he's fine. He said this virus is crazy. Robin asked if he's isolated. Howard said he is of course.
Howard asked if Robin wants to talk to Hung Handsome Howard. He said he has a huge penis and he's very handsome like Brad Pitt. Robin said sure. Howard took the call from Hung Handsome Howard and went through the bit. Hung Handsome Howard was bragging about his life and how much better he has it than regular Howard.
Hung Handsome Howard talked about how good he is at playing guitar. He also talked about forgetting to call his parents because he doesn't think about them that much. Howard asked if Hung Handsome Howard thinks about getting Coronavirus. Hung Handsome Howard told him to just let it happen and not think about that stuff.
Howard said if he had just been hung and handsome he'd be doing great. Robin said he'd be stupid.
Howard asked Hung Handsome Howard if he's staying 6 feet away from people. Hung Handsome Howard said that's like 3 lengths of his penis apart. Howard said he's going to end this because he's getting depressed. Hung Handsome Howard said he's having a zoom orgy later. He said he's having a bunch of women on with him. Howard and Hung Handsome Howard argued about who was going to say goodbye first. Hung Handsome Howard hung up first. Howard said that's an alternate universe Howard. He said that guy is having fun.
Howard said if you have his email please don't email him and ask what Roomba he has. He said he's inundated with questions about it. Robin said she didn't know they had so many kinds. Howard said he has the latest model. He said it vacuums and empties the bag. He said it's the S9+. He said he should have bought stock in Roomba before he talked about it. He said Beth asked him to get it to work tomorrow. He said he had to set it up. He said Beth was shocked he got it working.
Howard said a lot of people wrote him about Roomba. He said someone wrote him about how if it hits cat puke or doody it'll fling it everywhere. He said if you have dog shit on the floor then it's going to make a mess. He said you have to make sure you don't leave things on the floor. He said his cats were freaked out by this thing.
Howard read more feedback from people who have Roombas. Howard said someone said they named their Roomba ''Rosie.'' Howard said he didn't name his. He said he just calls it Roomba.
Howard read more feedback about the Roomba and had some information about the guy who invented this thing. Some people sent in name suggestions for his Roomba. They had Sal, High Pitch Erik and one guy said he named his ''Cuntsuelo.''
Howard read some feedback about yesterday's Michael Rapaport interview. Some people were upset with him demanding to be checked in on during the quarantine. Howard had some positive feedback about him too.
Howard said everyone loved Trump calling in yesterday. He said that was J-L Cauvin who did that. Howard said everyone loved Governor Cuomo on the show yesterday. He read through a bunch of feedback about that.
Howard took a call from a guy who said he thinks that Andy Cohen was the one who came up with the idea for John Mayer to bring out the thank you note. Howard said everything with that is going crazy. He said John brought that letter out and it turned into a whole thing. He said he was just making a point that he was ashamed and embarrassed by the whole thing. He said he should have known better. He said he should have checked his grammar.
Howard said yesterday John Mayer typed out a note to him that was one page long. He said it was a lovely note and he talked about what a fan he is of the show. He said he went back to Butt Bongo Fiesta. He said he asked Beth to look over his letter and she said there were no grammar mistakes. He said it was a lovely note and he has no animosity toward John. He said he likes the guy. He said he knows he gave him a poke but that's fine.
The caller said he should be mad at Andy and not John. He said he thinks it was Andy who was trying to get back at him for goofing on him first. Howard said he knows Andy and John are good friends and maybe it came up in conversation. He said he knows Andy wants to fuck John so bad. He said John is heterosexual though. He said he doesn't think he's getting in his pants.
Howard said he thinks that John gets off on Andy wanting him so badly. He said he figures they were hanging out and John showed him the note and pointed out the missing comma. He said Andy remembered that and had him on and had him show the note on his show.
Howard said it's no one's fault but his own for missing that comma. He said Andy is so tickled that John comes on his show. He said Andy is a top and John looks like he'd be a bottom. He said if he were a gay man he'd be fucking him in the ass. He said for Andy it's like a dog with a steak. He said Andy would fuck the Coronavirus right out of John Mayer.
Howard said John wrote him a nice note and he emailed him back. He said he kept it short and told him he's okay with him. He said he doesn't have to keep apologizing. He said he should have put more time into the note for John. He said that's it.
Howard said he won't read John's note on the air because it's a private note. He said he won't do that to him. Robin said that's the mistake John made. Howard said John said he made a mistake by sharing the note on the air.
Howard's audio cut out when he was talking to the caller. Robin had to thank the caller for his comments. They had some silence so they went into a song parody about Coronavirus while they waited for him to come back.
Howard came back and said the power went out in his house and his generator kicked in. He said the audio dropped out for a second. Gary said it must have shut off for a second. Howard said he was in the middle of yelling at that caller.
Howard said he's not sure what they missed when he was cut off. Robin said they heard most of what he was saying to the caller.
Howard said he wrote to John Mayer and he thinks things are cool now. He said don't ask him what Roomba he has or to do any charity events. He said it was just a quick note. Howard said John also told him why he won't do the show and it's probably best that he doesn't.
Howard said Andy wants to take his thank you note and underline all of his mistakes with John Mayer's jizzum.
Howard took a call from a woman who said the interview with Cuomo was amazing yesterday. She asked if Howard wants to go to some platform where he would interview political people. Howard said when he's done with this he's probably done with being. He said with everything going on there's probably not much time left. He said he's not going to start another show.
Howard said when he interviews someone political he's doing it because he's passionate about that person. He said doing that every week doesn't interest him. He said when he finishes this he'll be like 80 and he's not going to interview the likes of Mitch McConnell. He said when he's done with his last show there he's going to have a Viking funeral. He said he'll go up in flames on a boat. He said Fred will shoot the flaming arrow at his boat.
Howard said there have been some networks who asked him to do shows like that. He said if they're going to pay him more money to do it then maybe they're talking his language. The caller laughed so Howard wondered why. She said she gets nervous and laughs. She said they just want to keep Howard as long as they can. She said even with the shortened show is fantastic. She said it's all jam packed in. She said even one day a week for 30 minutes would be fine with her. Howard said he hopes Sirius is listening because he'd like to do one show a week for 30 minutes for triple the amount of money he's making now.
Howard said Kat sounded very sexual to him. He said maybe she wanted him to have phone sex with her. He said he can't do that with Beth upstairs cleaning the house.
Howard said Bernie Sanders finally dropped out of the Presidential race. He said don't be a dick by staying in it. He said he likes Bernie but it was the right time to drop out. He said he lost and that's it. He said the guy is 78. He said he was born in 1941. He went through some things that were newer and older than Bernie. He said Duct Tape is older by 2 years.
Howard read more about Bernie Sanders but his microphone was cutting out again. Gary let him know that he was freezing up again. They played some stuff to cover for him while they tried to fix the issue. They played a Mariann from Brooklyn sex story, The Beatles ''Come Together,'' a phony phone call Jim Breuer made to a feed store as Goat Boy and The Beatles ''She Loves You.''
Howard said Paul is calling him now. Howard tried to take the call and he cut out again. Paul was there but Howard wasn't. Robin had to talk to Paul for him. Robin said forget about Howard. She said that he spent all night thinking of questions for him. Howard got back on.
Howard said he feels this sense of urgency to talk to Paul. He said if he was alive during the time of Beethoven and Mozart then he'd feel he'd have to ask every question he can. He said he has to get very bit of information out of Paul.
Paul asked if he would ask them if they got laid. Howard said yes. He said that's his first question. He asked if he's getting laid. Paul laughed and asked if Howard is alright. Howard said he wants to know how he's doing. Paul said he's in Sussex in England and he's doing well. He said Nancy is in New York so things are rough. He said he's lucky that he's locked down with his daughter Mary and her family. He said that makes it better.
Howard asked how he and Nancy got separated. Paul said it's kind of private stuff but Nancy had to get back to New York for her family and he knew she had to do that. He said he had to get back to England so they went their way. He said she's there at 7:00 banging pots and pans out her window. Howard asked if he ever thought he'd see something like this in his life. Paul said never. He said it's crazy how things are and it's scary. He said the thing for him is that he's from the generation that just came out of World War II and the spirit they showed was what they needed and this is what we need now. He said it is around and people are pulling together. He said if we don't then we're finished.
Howard said he's reading a book called Unbroken about World War II and the guys are so rugged and banding together. He said during World War II everyone sacrificed. He asked if we're going to see that or civil unrest. Paul said we're seeing it over there in England. He said people aren't going crazy and looting like you'd think. He said he thinks that it's happening the other way and people realize that there's so much good in humanity. He said it seems to be showing itself. He said everyone is doing their best to stay safe. He said he's seeing a lot of good spirit out there in England. He said it's the same spirit everyone had after World War II. He said he witnessed that growing up.
Howard said he's talking about the banging the pots thing and that's what everyone in New York is doing. Howard said he got a note from Nancy about what her friend wrote about the wet markets in China. He said that they could shut that down over there but the government chooses not to. He said it's mind boggling. Paul said it seems that many of these viruses that have affected us have come from there. He said the Chinese Government has the power to shut that down over there. He said it's a little bit medieval eating bats. Howard asked if Paul has stopped eating bats. Paul said he has but Ozzy hasn't.
Howard said it's amazing that they won't shut those markets down in China. He said that they have to. He said maybe they'll listen to Paul.
Paul said he may have something there. He said they may do it anyway but it may be voices like his and Howard's that suggest it. He said it's a good idea for them and for us. He said they need to clean up their act over there. Paul said that this may lead to it being cleaned up.
Howard said this should inspire them to do something. He said that's why he likes that whole article that his wife sent him. Robin said the pressure is mounting on the banning of the wet markets movement. Paul said they're animal people from way back and they're not keen on that stuff anyway.
Paul said that whoever is responsible for this is at war with the world and itself. He said they say that people have done it forever and this is the way they do things. He said they need to change.
Howard said imagine when he was starting out and they would go out to practice. He said if they had to do this back then they never would have gotten out to perform. He said this is altering history in a way that's really profound. Paul said it's a very serious thing and someone has to do something about it. He said back in their day they'd have a single concert canceled or something. He said that was just a day in one area and not the whole world. He said he's had to cancel a bunch of concerts this year. He said he's had to postpone until next year.
Howard said it must kill him not to be able to perform. Paul said what's bad for him is the people who had to cancel and get refunds on their tickets. He said they were looking forward to going out and performing.
Howard said they were talking about Elton John doing a performance and he didn't have a piano in his house. He said imagine this guy doesn't have a piano in his house. He asked if Paul has any houses with no instruments in it. Paul said that doesn't apply to him. He said he has a guitar with him all the time.
Howard said he was watching when Paul brought Ringo up on stage for 2 songs. He said it was a phenomenal highlight to see that. He asked how that was for him. Paul said it was fantastic for them. He said when so much time goes by you get to reflect on things in your life. He said the other guys in the Beatles are the sweet things in his life. He said it's magical to be able to perform with Ringo. He talked about how great it was to work with him and how he had to turn and look at him and see him there. He said he was thinking about how great it was to be working with him.
Howard asked if Ringo came to him asking if he can go out on tour with him. Paul said that didn't happen but it was great to play with him.
Howard asked Paul why he didn't just keep the Beatles going with George and Ringo when John broke them up. He said that George was such a great song writer. He said that he could have had the best of both of their things together as The Beatles. Paul said they were like a family. He said when they break up it's due to emotional pain. He said you're hurting too much and it wasn't going to happen. Howard asked if he thinks he underestimated George Harrison as a song writer. Paul said it was easy to underestimate George. He said John had written most of the stuff. He said that he had most of the singles and George was a late bloomer as a writer. He said he wasn't that interested in the beginning. He said he really bloomed and had some of the best songs ever. Howard said ''Here Comes the Sun'' was just one.
Paul said in the band at that point you weren't surprised that anyone came in with a good song. He said that they were all working and that song was quite complicated. He said they loved the song but most of the time they were just trying to figure it out.
Paul talked about how interesting it was to grow up with George in his neighborhood and how he hitchhiked with him around the countryside. He said they had an interesting friendship.
Howard said he was talking to Jimmy Fallon the other day about the best bands of all time. He said they figured that The Beatles were the best of all time. He said that the Rolling Stones never would have existed without them. He said The Beatles are better than the Rolling Stones. He asked if he's correct. Paul said he's going to persuade him to agree with that one. He said he thinks the Stones are fantastic. He said that Mick can really sing and move. He said they're all great. He said he loves them but their stuff is rooted in the blues. He said the Beatles had other influences but he would agree that the Beatles were better.
Howard asked if it was annoying to him that other bands were copying what they did. Paul said that they did see that the Stones were doing things similar to them. He said there was a lot of that early on but they were great friends. He said they admire each other. Howard said it was a fantastic time for music back then. He said the Stones were great too.
Howard asked Paul if he was ever offered roles in movies. Paul said not in Hollywood but there was an Italian director, Franco Zeffirelli, who wanted him to play Romeo. He said he said no to him. He said they need an actor for that. He said he came close to doing something like that but he didn't do it. Howard said it can mess up your career if it's not your thing to do. Paul said he said thanks but no thanks to that offer.
Howard asked Paul how aware he is of the music scene and if Van Halen was of interest to him in the 80s. Paul said he wasn't that interested in the 80s as he was with the 60s and 70s. He said he was into Dylan and Neil Young. He said it got a little less special as time went on. He said he knows people who are crazy about it now. He said it was their generation. He said for him he'd rather hear some Neil Young any day. He said he was aware of Van Halen but he wasn't a big fan. He said he doesn't mean it in a bad way, it just wasn't on his radar.
Howard said he interviewed Billie Eilish and her brother and they made their album in their bedroom. He asked what he thinks he and John could have done if they had that equipment back then. Paul said he thinks that for them it's brilliant. He said what they produce is very special. He said Billie is a friend of his daughter Stella and she Facetimed with her. He said he listened to her stuff and it's really great. He said for him the memories of going into the studios is something he likes. He said he had been in his bedroom enough and he liked getting out. He said they banged out 4 songs a day and he wouldn't swap that for anything.
Howard asked about what it was like writing songs with John and if they were able to write songs in 20 minutes. Paul said it wasn't 20 minutes but they were able to spend a coupe of hours and get them done. He said they always came up with a song after those one hour sessions. He said they'd work together and ping pong it between each other. He said they were great sessions.
Howard asked if Paul ever felt self conscious about writing about a paperback writer or something like that. Paul said no. He said that kind of thing would happen live and he'd just say something and John would say no. He said they edited each other as they went along. Paul said he had that Paperback writer idea for a long time and he wrote it like a letter to an editor or publisher.
Howard said he heard that if someone objected to a song they would reject it for the album. Paul said it was very democratic and they all had a say in it. He said there would be a dispute with things and they'd talk about how a song was going to go and if Ringo didn't want to do a drum solo they wouldn't do it. He said now all of this stuff is history. He said they never thought it would be history. He said that they would leave notes around and someone picked them up and now sells them for $700,000.
Howard asked Paul about writing ''Let it Be'' and how John didn't like it. He said he felt that it was too religious for him but it really wasn't religious at all. He said John could have vetoed that song for the album. Paul said he was able to rearrange that and make it the record it was. He said John never said he didn't like it. He said he knew his mother was called Mary. He said he didn't mind it. He said John would take the piss out of anything he wanted to. He said you knew that was John.
Paul said Peter Jackson has a bunch of hours of footage from the film Let it Be and he has rearranged it into something really good. He said it's bloody great. He said you see this relationship between him and John and him and George. He said you get it when you see it. Howard asked when it's coming out. Paul said no one knows when anything is coming out but it will come out some day. He said Disney are going to release it. He said it's great for him. He said you see the film and you see them having fun together and making music together. He said it's a joy to watch them coming up with songs. He said it's much nicer and friendly than the story has become.
Howard asked how 53 hours of that stuff sat around and didn't get found until now. Howard said it's like watching a master class in being creative. Paul said they had already done the film but this is out takes. He said they could have released the film again or do something different. He said Peter took a look at it and he's so cool that he found a way to do something different with it. He said he thought it was going to be depressing to him but it was a joy to watch. He said it's all kind of funny. He said Peter sent him something they had done where they sang about how she came in through the bathroom window. He said John is on piano for some reason and he's singing. He said he sings and then starts talking on the phone and John starts his bit and then it's two guys doing their comedy bit. He said it all made him feel so good. He said he thinks Howard will like it.
Howard said John called Paul out on his album and said that all he's done is ''Yesterday'' but it's like he did it all himself. He said that Paul must have been furious with him when he did that to him. Paul said that's true. He said knowing John he was a crazy dude. He said he would say what he felt and whatever he wanted. He said a lot of it wasn't true. He said he was able to take it with a pinch of salt because that was John. He said John didn't write all of the lyrics to those songs. He said that he just had to take the punches.
Howard said when he sees the history of the Beatles he knows that he had a loving mother and father and John didn't have that. He said he thinks he was yelling at Paul but he was really yelling at his mother. Paul said he had those talks with John and he would say that too. He said his dad left him at 3 and his mom left later on. He said he grew up in a very loving family and everything was cool until his mom died when he was 14. He said then it wasn't cool. He said he thought everyone had loving parents until then. He said he heard stories about John's parents and he knew that wasn't the case. He said John was a lovely guy though. Howard said we'll see that in the movie whenever that comes out.
Paul said he has to go now. Howard said he hates when he has to go. Paul said he's having so much fun talking to him. Howard said it must not be that fun if he has to run. He asked what he has to do. Paul said he has to go change his bed. He said no one is coming around these days so you have to do it yourself.
Howard said he has a lot of questions to ask. He said he'll save them for another time. He said he'll let him go. Howard said he doesn't want the Coronavirus anywhere near him. Paul said he feels the same way about Howard and Robin. He said he has so many friends over there and he hopes they're all coping and staying safe. He said the clouds will roll away eventually. Howard said Paul is the best. He said that it helps so many people out during these horrible times. He said he appreciates this from the bottom of his heart. Paul said he knows Nancy is listening now and he wants to say he loves her. Howard said he loves her too. Howard let him go after that.
Howard said he knew he only had a half hour with him but he wanted to keep him on. He said he gave him a lot more time than he thought he'd get. He said it's mind boggling what that guy has accomplished.
Howard said this movie he brought up is something. He said forget about the Tiger King. He said they had 53 hours of out takes from The Beatles movie shoot. He said he's sure whatever Peter Jackson did with it has to be fascinating.
Howard said John was so vicious to Paul after they broke up. He said imagine that Paul is sitting there and John puts out his solo album and he hears that the only thing he ever did was ''Yesterday.'' He said imagine what that was like for Paul. He said he fantasizes that Paul would ask him to interview him for 75 hours to get all of the details out there. He said he's still alive and he should be doing that in his life.
Howard said he was out with Jon Bon Jovi one night and he told him that he was able to call Paul and have him listen to his album. Howard said while they were talking about Paul he walks into the restaurant. He said it was by chance. He said Jon calls him ''Beatle Paul.'' He said Jon will call in tomorrow so he'll ask him about that. He said Paul came over and said he loves doing the show. He said he wanted to come in and drop by and he wasn't sure if he was for real or not. He said then out of the blue they got a call from Paul asking to call in for a half hour. He said that's how that came about.
Howard said he thought about what he wanted to ask him about. He wrote it all down last night. He said he wanted to ask him about punching Eddie Vedder in the head accidentally. He had questions about the songs he wrote too. Robin asked if Howard keeps these questions. Howard said he needs a lot of time with him. He said he has so many things to ask about. He said it drives him crazy. Robin told him to compile them into a presentation for Paul. Howard said he doesn't want to do that. He said he doesn't bother these people. He said he doesn't have the right to do that.
Howard said Jon wrote him and asked to come on for a half hour. He said he can come on any time he wants to.
Robin said she was able to talk to Paul when Howard's microphone cut out. Howard said he has to thank her for keeping him on. He said he was so pissed that his microphone cut out.
Howard said Yoko was listening to the interview. He said she's calling in to talk about that. The guys called in with clips of her screaming. Howard spent a minute with that and let her go a short time later.
Howard said he's going to take a break and go pish. He said they can do more show after that. He said they'll take some calls and then call it a day. He said Robin told him about a NASCAR guy who let the N-word slip out while playing an online game. He said JD says he'll have it by tomorrow. He said he can't wait to hear it. Robin said that the other guys had to let him know that everyone can hear him. He didn't know that. Howard said he's going to take a break and then get to more stuff.
Howard came back and Robin mentioned that the last time she spoke to Gary he had very pleasant breath. Gary said he was expecting a punch from her but his whole body shook when she said something nice. Robin said his breath was a breath of fresh air.
Howard said there are so many songs about Gary's breath, teeth and gums. He said that he actually smells very decent. Gary said now they can just do songs about the size of his teeth. He said one of his favorite songs is America's ''Boy with Horse Teeth.''
Howard said one of the reasons Paul called in is because he's on The Beatles channel on SiriusXM. He said he actually cares about the channel there. He said he's involved with it so check it out on channel 18. He said they have a free trial going on now so a lot of people are listening.
Howard said he also wants to thank Gardein who have been sponsoring them. He said he has been eating their stuff lately. He said they have a lot of great food. Robin said they need to come up with a version of Bat for China. Howard said he thinks they're working on it. He said he just made that up for those who thought he was real.
Howard said he has to thank Paul McCartney for doing the show. Robin said that she used to talk about the Beatles when she was growing up and to know that he knows her name is mind blowing to her.
Howard said the kids in his neighborhood were talking about the Temptations and bands like that. He said he didn't get to talk about The Beatles with anyone. He said back then music was a statement of who you were and no one liked who he was.
Howard said his song for Beth is out there and climbing the charts. Robin asked where that's happening. Howard told her to just play along. He played the song that he performed on the show last week.
Howard said all of America is talking about the song. He said he recorded a vocal for a studio version of the song. He said Jack Antonoff is going to do a studio version with him. He said that he has worked with a lot of big music acts. He said they're going to call him Neil Not-so-young.
Howard said people have started covering the song so he has those to play. He said someone took it and remixed it into an EDM song. He said he's not really an EDM fan but this is good. He played that for Robin who said she likes the Autotune part of that.
Howard said a couple from Canada did a coffee house version of the song. He played that and the couple sang the song in their own way. Howard said that was Roddy and Jessie.
Howard said Michael Rapaport is calling in about Gary's breath. Michael said Robin has to be kidding about Gary's breath. He said they have to cut the shit. Robin said she thought he was going to be nice to Gary. Michael said he was but in his last call he said he has been listening to the show out of order and yesterday he heard him saying things about him.
Gary told Howard not to take this from Michael because he only has this and the TV show Atypical. Michael said he has a podcast that's very successful. He said Atypical is going into season four so that's a big hit for him.
Howard asked if Michael made fun of Gary and his dog picture saying that his dog looks scared. Michael said he did. He said the dog looks cared of him like he's trying to get away from his breath.
Gary said he posted a picture of the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree and Michael said you can see the people running from him like he's Godzilla. Michael cracked up at that. Howard let him go after that.
Howard asked Gary where this hate comes from. Gary said he thinks Michael just does it like Sal did it early on. He said he dares him to come on the show and be funny without talking about him.
Howard took a call from a guy who said that Paul McCartney interview was great. He said he's a big Beatles fan so it was great to hear. Howard said you think you know everything about the band but then you hear new stuff. He said he has this feeling they should get as much out of him as they can. The caller said he asked a question that he has never heard asked before and that was about why he didn't continue on with George Harrison. Howard said he got 2 things out of that. He said he knew George for so long and he probably didn't recognize how great he was as a song writer. Howard said he thinks they could have been great as the Beatles without John.
Howard took a call from Mariann from Brooklyn who said that was an amazing interview. she said she saw him 3 years ago in Brooklyn and he was amazing. She said that Howard is keeping it real for the fans during this outbreak.
Howard said he has this horrible feeling about Paul. He said he's 78 years old now. He said he think about it and he hopes he lives until 100. Gary said he'll be 78 this June. Howard said if this Coronavirus thing keeps going and a concert is 2 years away he'll be 80 years old. He said that this could have ended them seeing him in concert again.
Robin said he hit on something profound in the interview. Robin said he asked what we're going to miss as a result of this Coronavirus. Howard said there's probably some kid out there who can be a great writer or filmmaker and they won't be able to do it. Howard said young broadcasters are being fired. He said if he was 21 years old and this was going on he never would have been able to develop his act. Robin said they wouldn't have had their chemistry.
Mariann asked if he heard that Chris Booker was laid off. Howard said he did. He said Chris is such a good dude that he didn't go on the air and whine about it. He said Chris said no one wants to hear him whine about that now with everything going on. He said he's a good dude and he's honored to know someone like that. Robin asked if he's still doing the Perez Hilton podcast. Howard said he is. He said that should light the world on fire any day now.
Howard said Chris gets to bang Jennifer Lopez's sister so he's got it made. He said he brought that up and Chris hung up on him.
Mariann said that Chris Cuomo is rethinking his career after all of this. She said that he's thinking it's not worth fighting with people. She said she thinks there's a whole new way that people will think after all of this.
Howard said there are really good people in this world and they will rise to the occasion but there are so many evil doers out there. He said they're small thinkers. He said right now it's about 50/50 with thinkers and non thinkers. He said that this world Mariann is thinking about won't happen. He said there are so many scumbags out there who have to eat bats. He said there's a real battle going on in this country. He said there are believers in science and government and then the Neanderthals. Robin said there are people threatening Dr. Fauci's life over this. Howard said there are some real low level types out there so beware of them. He said don't let your guard down. He said they're ready to take advantage of this situation. Mariann said we will come out on top and she believes that. She said her family is struggling but they don't have Coronavirus so they're happy. She started to sing to Howard as he was going to hang up on her.
Robin said that they're talking about opening the economy but the stock market is still going to be down. Robin said the executives out there don't make the country go. She said that you make the country go. She said she hopes that people will organize and say what you need because this country needs you.
Howard took a call from Apples who said he's willing to do whatever it takes to get Robin's top off. Howard said Robin's boobs will be back. He said they're stockpiled in a secret location.
Apples asked if Netflix or Amazon came to him and asked him to do a 10 part series where he interviews people. Howard said he has heard from many companies about doing some sort of other show. He said he's already doing a show. He said he's not going anywhere. He said he has been approached to do one offs and specials but he doesn't need to do those. He said he's just working for Sirius now.
Howard said Sal called Gary the Conqueror to find out how he's doing. Howard played some audio of Gary talking about how pissed off he is at the Coronavirus because he cant go out and do anything. Howard played a clip of Gary talking about going to the grocery store and watching TV all day. Howard said his big complaint is getting irritated with everyone using the internet at the same time.
Howard said Gary is upset that the internet is almost as slow as Gary. He said Sal asked if he's been masturbating and that set him off. Gary said hell no and went off on Sal for asking that. Howard said he thinks he's protesting too much. He said that's what he does when Beth asks if he's masturbating. Howard said it sounds to him that masturbating would be a fun thing to be doing.
Howard said Lenny Dykstra doesn't seem to be affected by Coronavirus at all. He said he's been putting out videos and he tweeted out a tip for men. He played the audio where Lenny was talking about what guys can do if they're going through a lot of pussy. He said take 5 times the prescribed amount of Amoxicillin and it's like having a sniper at your cock every day. Robin said viruses aren't harmed by antibiotics. Howard said tell Lenny that.
Robin said Lenny also offered to help all women. He played another clip where Lenny talked about having his mask and gloves but no teeth. He said he thinks we'll all get through this. He said he has a tip for women and said go ahead and DM him 24/7 and he'll get you what you need to know or get you where you need to go. Howard said he thinks he's offering services to bang them.
Howard said the CDC recommends that all women stay 6 feet away from Lenny no matter what. He said he has a daily briefing and he's like Governor Cuomo but with no teeth.
Howard said Lenny is working on a pill to cure the Coronavirus. He played a clip of Lenny talking about that. Howard asked if you ever understand what he's talking about. Robin said no. She said she did understand the pill thing. Howard said he loves him. He said there's the Lenny and Gary updates.
Howard took a call from a woman who said she wanted to know if they have been watching The Plot Against America. Howard said he can't imagine that anyone can identify as a Nazi in this day after what happened in World War II. The caller said that this is based on a book where Lindberg becomes president. Howard said it's an alternate reality kind of show. He said he may watch it but he has enough to watch right now. The caller said she likes the show Unorthodox that Howard mentioned earlier. Howard said he'll check this one out too.
Howard took a call from a guy who asked what guests he's had on where he stays up at night wondering what to ask. He said he knows Paul is special but he wonders who else is like that. Howard said he feels this sense of urgency with Paul because he's such a part of our history and such an influence on history and our society. He said he feels like he has to ask a lot. He said he still cares a lot.
Howard took a call from Bobo who talked about what a great interview the Paul McCartney interview was. Bobo said he wanted to know who Paul was influenced by. Howard said his father was a big influence. He said that's well known. He said that was a very original question and he's glad he hung in there for 3 hours for that. Bobo said this toilet paper thing is the conspiracy he wanted to talk about. He said they did the same thing with Cabbage Patch dolls years ago. He said they always hold back stuff. Fred played him off with loud music like he was at the Academy Awards. Bobo kept talking.
Howard took a call from Speech Impediment Man who had an idea to pitch. He said he wants to remake The King of Comedy where he's Robert De Niro and Howard is Jerry Lewis and Robin can play his mother. Howard thanked him for the call and asked him to say a few words. Speech said we'll all get through this and don't be a dickhead. Howard ended the show around 10:00am.
Howard started the show talking about how he put an end to the Judy Garland opening song that they had been playing. He asked the guys not to fade this out. He said he doesn't have the control anymore. Robin asked how the Judy Garland song got made. Howard said someone had the idea to do that as an ironic thing. He said everyone might have been high that day. He said some of the guys on the crew are frustrated musicians and they think they're going to have a hit song. He said they're just trying to be creative.
Howard said he was on Twitter reading things and he has been avoiding the NY Times. He said he gets too upset. He said he got upset about Trump delaying stimulus checks because his name isn't on them. He said it's not his money so stop it. Robin said no other president has put their name on a check like that. Howard said his whole business is putting his name on things. He said he's the president now and he has differences with him. He said people don't have time for this. Howard said there are people who have no money and asking to put your name on it is ridiculous. He said you're not giving them the money, it's coming from the country.
Howard said he doesn't get how Trump doesn't know that doesn't look good. He said it's actually our money and not his money. Robin said the treasury department wanted to hold it up and Trump wanted to sign every check. Howard said it's funny that the guy who won't show his tax returns wants to make it seem like he's giving the money to the people. Robin said he stopped funding to the World Health Organization too. Howard said he's also playing games with New York. He said Cuomo was trying to be diplomatic the other day. He said if Donald gets bruised he'll take it out on New York.
Robin said Trump thinks he's a king. Howard said he's not even authorized to sign the checks but he's working his name into it. He said he reads this stuff and goes berserk. He asked what's next, Ivanka's tits on the flag? Robin said no one can tell him that it's a bad move.
Howard took a call from fake Donald Trump who was upset about what they were talking about. Fake Trump said they have nothing to fear but fake reporters at CNN who report the fake news. Howard talked to Trump about the virus thing and Trump talked about how they have to open up the country again and open up Robin's legs again so they can have a big celebration.
Howard said the virus is really scary and so many people are dying. Trump said people are dying stronger than ever before and no one has ever seen anything like it. He said the worst part is the democrats love death like they love crime and rainy days.
Howard asked Trump where we're at with the virus. Trump said they're flattening the curve but Obama would make the curve more curvy because they love a lot of junk in the trunk. He said he's a sick, bad guy. Robin asked why he won't talk about the Coronavirus. Trump told her to shut her mouth and open her legs.
Howard asked Trump about the economy. Trump said it will come back and bigger than ever. He said maybe it'll be small. He said he gave all the options so he called it either way.
Howard asked Trump more questions about the Coronavirus and how we're going to beat it. Fake Trump had jokes about all of that.
Howard said people say we were unprepared for this. Trump said he knew this was going to be a problem before anyone else. He said they told him he knew more about viruses than the scientists do. He said he could have cured cancer.
Howard asked if he's worried that we're going to run out of ventilators. Trump said you can get one in any store. He said they have his name on them and they're next to that big chair that vibrates.
Howard let fake Trump go a short time later. Robin said she wishes she could argue with the real president. Howard said they have 26,000 dead Americans and Trump is worried about having his name on the checks.
Howard said a PAC ran a commercial for Biden against Trump and now Trump is suing the station that ran the ad. He said the implied thing is that he might fuck with their license because of it. He said he says he was misquoted and they just used what he said. He said he's so confused.
Howard said it's incredible that he can deny saying something that they have him on tape saying.
Howard took a call from a guy who asked about the checks and how Nancy Pelosi is the problem. Howard said he's going to tell him something. The caller kept talking over him so Howard said he's going to hang up if he doesn't listen. The caller said that Howard is so one sided about everything and he doesn't want to hear this every morning. Howard said he was just talking about the checks and how Trump has to get his name on all of them. The caller said that he didn't mention Pelosi last week.
Howard said the thing he sees in the White House is nothing resembling the republican party. He said he's talking about the checks being delayed so he can put his name on it. The caller said that's retarded if it's true. Robin said this guy doesn't believe it. Howard said this is true. He said he has to get off this. He said it is a fact you fuck. He said he's done with this.
Howard said he's had enough. He said he'll quit if you push him over the edge. He said that fuck Chucky called in with that. He said he's a grown man with the name Chucky. He said he knows who that guy is. He said he recognized his voice. He said he could be upstairs banging his wife or at least begging her to bang him instead of doing this.
Howard said Trump is denying people money to put his name on the checks. He said this guy doesn't believe it. He went off on the caller for a couple more minutes about his ridiculous comments. He did an impression of him asking about things that weren't related to what he was talking about.
Howard took a call from Danny the Twitter Troll who is one of the staffers making up hashtags about Howard. Danny said he hates listening to him but he listens every day. Howard asked Danny what his problem is with the show. Danny said it's too PC now. He said he can't call bad stuff ''gay'' anymore. Howard said things change in life. Howard went back and forth with Danny for a few minutes.
Howard said Paul's wife sent him an article about why they should shut down the wet markets. He said they have given us COVID-19 and SARS and other things. Howard said he talked to Paul about that and he said it was kind if silly that it was still going on. He said he never thought it would be controversial. He said in Rolling Stone a guy wrote an article. He said his name is John Blistein. He said he wrote that they were making fun of their culture and saying things that weren't true. Howard said he's not going to tolerate things like removing a woman's clitoris in a culture. He said of course they're going to make fun of it.
Howard read some of the article and this Blistein guy said that this was a conspiracy theory about people eating bats in China and how it's implying that eating bats is a regular thing. Howard said the guy says that it may not have been bats but an ant eater type of animal over there. It could have been that or a snake. Howard asked what the difference is. He said Paul was making the point that they have to stop the wet markets. He said these things are jumping from rodents to people because the people are eating them.
Howard read more of the article and said he disagrees with them over at Rolling Stone. He said he doesn't know John but he doesn't think Paul was doing anything but telling the truth. He said it did make a lot of controversy.
Howard said Mort was 91 and people say that he was old anyway. Howard said he could have lived until 100 for all they know. He said when he's 91 he's going to be hoping for a few more years. He said Mort had a passion for drawing from an early age. He said he once ran out of paper and drew on the curtains in the house. He said he hung them facing out and the neighbors complained about the naked women he drew.
Howard talked about some of the great parodies that he did for MAD. He said he was also married for 71 years. Robin let out ''Yuck'' sound when she heard that. Robin asked what they had to say after all that time. Howard said that's pretty good to be able to work from home and be married all that time.
Howard said thank you to Mort who was a funny man to him. He said anyone who read MAD knows he was the best.
Howard said he's completely evaluated all the time. He said he's glad that he had her take it down. He said he said the wrong thing. He said people pick him apart for leaving a comma out of a letter. He said if you make a mistake don't put it up there on social media. He said the people will rip you apart.
Howard said just talking about the news and all of that was so much better than this bit. He said he wasn't particularly happy about the bit. He said it was fine but they had to put all of this work into it. He said the engineers there hated him for making them work on these things. He said when they'd record stuff like that they'd never smile and you feel like it's not funny. He said it was just horrible.
Howard said they aired this thing and it was about 6 parts. He said a few years later he's watching the Tim Burton movie ''Mars Attacks'' and they were in shock. He said it's a story about aliens attacking and Slim Whitman is killing the aliens. He said that's fucked up. He said they wrote this thing that ended up being a movie. He asked how they figured out that was their thing. Fred said he loves Tim Burton. He said it came out in 1996 so that was more than a few years later.
Howard said he was laying in bed thinking about that. He said it was weird to him that they had written this funny little script and it became a movie. He said he wasn't angry about it but he wonders how it came about. He wondered if someone wrote it for Tim Burton or did Tim write it. Robin said he should have asked Tim when he was in there. Howard said it didn't bother him that much. He said he's not sure why he's thinking about it now. Robin said that is very strange. Fred said that movie made $101 million. Howard said they should have made that movie.
Robin asked if it works like records when they take a melody that you did in a song. Howard said he never thought about suing. Howard read about who wrote the screenplay for Mars Attacks. He was a British guy.
Howard said according to Wikipedia he did bring it up with Tim Burton and he said it was all coincidence. He said he didn't remember bringing that up. Robin said people have come up with the some idea before but Howard did it first.
Howard said Tim Burton said he should have sued him. He said he has sued before. He said some ideas he lets go. He said he would have liked some credit. He said Fred would have liked that too.
The caller talked about how Gary wasn't in great shape in that movie. Howard talked about how Fred was in really good shape back then. He said he used to do farm chores so he was in good shape from that. He said one weekend he came home from his mother's house and thought he was having a heart attack because he had split so much wood. Fred said he had split 2 cords. He said that was a mistake.
Howard said Gary works out a lot but he eats a ton. Gary said that was back in 1996. Howard said the guy was right though. The caller said Fred was in such good shape that he could have killed animals with his bare hands.
Howard said they shot that scene and he hadn't been around a lot of other women. Fred said they shot that for like 6 hours and her tit was on his knee all that time. Howard said there's like 1000 people in the room when they shoot and he still got a boner. He said he had his dick against her back in the tub and he got aroused. He said he couldn't help it.
Howard said people who act for a living say that it's impossible to get a boner on set. He said he got one. He said he didn't want to be pervy about it and he let them know that he was having a hard time with it. He said he had to bend over and push his hard on down. Robin said he had a towel over it. She said she was like ''Oh my god.'' Howard said this is the first time he was glad he had a small penis. He said he had to go to his dressing room and beat off after that. He jokingly said Fred finished him off.
Gary said that Jon Bon Jovi is ready to talk. Howard said he's going to take a break and then get to Jon. He said Jon wants to go to heaven so bad. He said he's doing so many good things. He said he must have made a pact with the devil early on and now he's going the other way. He said he's giving homeless people free food. He said it's good food too. He said he's doing charity and helping people on the street. He said Satan is considering sending him to heaven now. Howard went to break a short time later.
Howard came back and said he was playing that Robin clip yesterday in his office and he never saw her laugh so hard. He said Robin will sing in public unlike Beth.
Howard said he has known Jon Bon Jovi for like 75 years now. He asked Jon to talk about when he met Satan and how he made him an offer to make him as pretty as a woman and give him all of this success. Jon said he did say there was beach front property there in hell.
Howard asked how things are going. Jon said he's doing well. He said this is a very strange situation they're in. Howard said he's thinking about his last tour. He said he was contemplating how much money they make on tour. He said he was reading about how they grossed $860 million in the last decade. He said those are incredible numbers. Howard said Jon may not be able to go out and tour live for the next 2 or 3 years possibly. Jon said that's something he has been contemplating. He said they may never tour again. He said it could be the end of touring. He said you can't get caught up in that but they say that 20 is out of the question and 2021 is probably out of the question. He said maybe in 2022 but do you want to tour like that again by then?
Jon said he was supposed to be in rehearsals this week. He said he has a new record in his back pocket and he can't get it out there. Howard said he doesn't need to do it financially but that's why he exists. He said that whole reality has changed. Howard asked if it still seems unreal to him. He said he still can't accept that this is reality. He said he can't go to his studio in Manhattan and see his guys. He said it's fucking crazy.
Jon said that his son Jake is 17 and he wants to graduate high school and go to prom. He said Romeo is stuck at home and doesn't know if he's going to go back to school. He said these things are big for 16 and 17 year olds. Howard said he feels for the kids who are just about to finish school. He said he talked to Paul about this yesterday and what it would have been like if they had to stop in the middle of their tours. He said everyone is being delayed in their development. Jon said it's all very daunting. He said you have to do their thing and get through this. He said it's all the little things that help you get through this.
Howard asked if Jon has yelled at anyone who isn't social distancing or does he keep walking. Jon said out in Jersey he hasn't run into all that much. He said he's still the dishwasher at the Soul Kitchen. He said he's in a room with a few other people 5 days a week. Howard said this is the place that he's got running for homeless people. He said that he's still going there and washing dishes. Jon said 5 days a week. He said the restaurant is closed but people still need to eat. He said they don't have places to go to get food. He said they have an in need population. He said he's in the kitchen washing dishes but he has no interaction with anyone. He said he and Dorothea are there every week. He said they're being very careful. He said of course they're scared to death. He said they have inside and outside clothes and the masks and gloves. He said his hands are very clean. He said his job is to wash pots and pans and dishes.
Howard said Jon's kids are so good looking. He said Jake is a stud. Jon agreed. Howard said the kid is getting laid left and right. Howard said he talks to his kids about things they can't talk to their dad about. He asked what this kid is going to do. He said he's a sex symbol. Jon said he's 17 and trying to figure things out.
Howard said this other son Romeo is a great kid too. He said he was studying Karate and MMA and all of that. Howard said he was so taken with him too. He said he was talking to him over the summer last year and he was giving up the martial arts. He said he told him to stick with it. He said the kid wants to be a musician. He said he's not sure that's a great idea. Jon said it's great. He said just to be able to play is like having a friend. Howard said imagine that your father is a big success in music and you get into it. He said he wanted to beat the pants off his dad an he was able to do that easily. He said it's a tall order for this kid.
Howard asked how David Bryan is doing. He got the COVID-19. Jon said he seems to be doing good. He said he still feels a little bad but he's getting better. He said he is steady and his wife got some of the issues. He said she's doing well but David had it bad.
Howard asked if he's afraid to be on stage with David now that he's had it. Jon said not at all. He said it hit him hard though. He said David called him and told him he's got it and it sounded like he was almost excited about it. He said that's so David.
Howard said he sees a Bon Jovi chair in his room there. He asked what that is. Jon said they're the chairs from the movies that he did. He said it's the 12 movies he did. He said he has his trophies and memorabilia in that room too.
Howard asked if Jon is still a Patriots fan. Jon said he is. Howard said he had Tom Brady on the show the other day. Jon had a Bill Belichick hoodie that he got from him. Howard said he doesn't like that he's a Patriots fan. He said he should be a Giants fan. Jon said he and Bill Belichick have been friends for 30 plus years. He said he was an assistant back in the 80s. He said wherever he went he got to be the mascot. He said when they left the Giants and went to Texas and Notre Dame he was the mascot. He said he would go visit and stayed pals with everyone. He said his relationship got deeper and deeper as time went by. He said he became a Patriot fan because his guys were there. He said he was a fan back when Brady was a backup quarterback.
Howard said Jon is a fan and he talks up the NFL. He said he has yet to play the halftime show. Jon said he has no desire to do that. He said he turned it down years ago. He said he didn't like that you have to team up with other people and things like that. He said they asked him to play in New Jersey and that seems too obvious. He said he won't even talk about doing it again. Howard said that's a smart thing because it's a lose-lose kind of thing to do. He said it's like a Vegas act kind of thing. He said even Prince didn't come off that well when he did it.
Howard asked Jon if he wants some of his clothes to hang on his wall. He said it seems odd to him that he has Belichick's hoodie. Jon said he has a few things like that. He said he had beaten the Jets and it was a monumental thing he did so he gave it to him as a keepsake. Howard said he has to come to his house to see the stuff he has hanging there. Jon said he never comes there so when he does he thinks it's pretty good.
Howard asked if he thinks Brady is going to do okay in Tampa. Jon said he does. He said Bill will do fine without Brady too. He said Tom was a once in a lifetime quarterback. He said they'll both do great. He said it's one of those things where one and one makes three.
Jon said he was wondering if the Patriot way started with Robert Kraft or with Bill Belichick. He said he gets to go to camp every year and get into those conversations with them. He said Tom is going to do great. He said no one's work ethic is like his. He said Bill is great because he's a genius.
Howard said he told the story about Jon telling him the story about McCartney when they were out to dinner and Paul walked in. Howard asked if he thinks Paul likes being called Beatle Paul. Jon said he asked him if it was okay to call him that and he said it was fine. He said he's too old to call him Mr. McCartney. He said the guy is incredibly sweet too. Howard said he doesn't like Sir Paul because it's too formal. Howard said it's very ballsy to ask him to listen to your record.
Howard asked what he did when he came over to listen. He asked if he just stares at him. Jon said he wished someone had a camera that day. He said his wife set it up as a play date. He said she and Nancy are good friends. He said Paul shows up and he plays him some songs from the record. He said he was so proud of it that he had no problem playing it for him. He said he had one song that he hadn't recoded yet so he played it for him in the living room. He said Paul took his guitar and flipped it over since he's left handed. He said he played some stuff for him after he played the song. He said they were talking about the way the Beatles did things and he was demonstrating it. Jon said he actually had in his song what Paul was suggesting and he didn't have all of the lyrics to sing that part for Paul.
Howard asked if he thinks Paul is totally honest with him about songs. Jon said you can find something good in any song that someone has you listen to. He said he did the same thing with Bruce and he has listened to Bruce's stuff too. He said they have the opportunity to get together and share it and it's amazing when you can do that.
Howard asked about what it's like to have Bruce call you over to listen to his new music. He said they must stare at the speaker cones there. Jon said they listened in Bruce's car about 10 years ago. He said he had Bruce over to listen to his album. Howard asked what they talked about with that. Jon said you talk about what moves you or doesn't. Howard asked why he's not involved. He said he was a judge on America's Got Talent. Jon said he actually wrote a song and played it for him at his house. Howard said he's glad he brought that up.
Howard said he had Jon and his wife over for dinner one night. He said Jon took his guitar from his office and tuned it up. He said he came out and played a song he wrote for his birthday. Howard said the song was just beautiful. He asked if they did the song the same way on the album. Jon said he has the band behind him on the album but that's the song. Howard said it was so great that he did it for him. He said he needs him to come over and do that again in a couple of weeks for his friends. Jon said it was just a year ago that they did that. Howard said it was. He said that's hard to believe. He said no one is ever coming over to his house again.
Howard said what's great is when Jon did that performance at his birthday show. He said he and Pat Monahan looked like they were having such a great time. He said he thinks they did ''Wanted Dead Or Alive.'' He said that's one of the best songs he ever wrote. Howard said he let Pat take some of the lines. Howard played some of that performance. Howard said Jon played that perfect. Jon said he's played it enough.
Howard asked Jon what he's doing with this Jersey for Jersey Benefit. He said he must be asked to do a lot. Jon said you do what you can. Howard said on April 22nd they're going to have Bruce Springsteen, Chelsea Handler, Danny De Vito and a bunch of other people. Jon said Chris Rock and Halsey too. He said it's for Jersey and by Jersey. He said it'll be on ABC and on Sirius. He said it's all acoustic and people will be at home. Howard said they'll all be on ABC and doing it from home on an iPhone. Jon said that's the idea. He said he wrote a new song that he'll be adding to the record. He said it's called ''Do What You Can.'' He said he'll perform it for the first time ever. He said it's an important song for everyone. Howard asked if its like a telethon. Jon said it is.
Howard asked who will open the show. Jon said the producer is going to figure all of that out. He said Joel Gallen will be the guy to do that. He said that they have so many great performers coming on to do the show. He said that they all have a window and you are by yourself. He said he's not sure what everyone else will be doing but he's got his guitar.
Howard asked where Uncle Floyd and Joe Piscopo are. Jon said it's not too late to get on. He said he'd love to see Uncle Floyd. He said he did that show. Howard said everyone did. He said he did it years ago too. Howard said they have to have the Jersey Shore people on to introduce Bruce. Jon said yes to all of that.
Howard said he's not sure when he'll see Jon ever again. He said he continues to be one of his favorite artists.
Howard asked if he has called Richie Sambora to talk about all of this. Jon said they have been in touch over email. He said it's not the end of the world.
Howard and Jon talked about how great Governor Cuomo is doing with all of this. Jon said Phil Murphy is doing a great job too. Howard said he has to say that he was so glad that he got to see him at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. He said he and his wife are great and he's glad that they're able to do what they do for people. He gave Jon some plugs for the Jersey for Jersey Benefit.
Howard asked what Jon is doing today. Jon said he's working out and then taking his singing lessons. He said he's doing that over Zoom and he does it every day. He said he was told that Tony Bennett vocalizes every day so that's what he's doing.
Howard asked how you trust a vocal coach. He said if you hire the wrong asshole they can really fuck you up. He said they could teach you to sing the wrong way. Jon said that he woman he has, Katie, has been with him for over 30 years. Jon said Dee Snider used to go to her back in the 80s. He said it was Steven Van Zandt who turned him on to her. He said that he went 30 plus years ago and he's been with her ever since. Howard asked why he has to go if he knows everything. Jon said that you have to keep working at it. He said if you're at this level you ave to put the time in.
Howard said he got some vocal lessons and this woman he had taught him to make noises. He asked Jon what he does. Jon explained that you learn to get your tongue out of the way and it's a lot of little things that you have to do. He said you have to work on it every day. He said the older he gets the harder he works at it.
Howard gave Jon some more plugs for the benefit show and said he's really moved by him taking the time to talk to them. He said he's going to send him some of his old socks to hang next to that Belichick hoodie. Jon said people need to just be patient and stay home. Howard let him go after that.
Howard said Robin has studied with the same woman Jon has worked with. He played some of Robin's singing. Robin said she heard Jon talking about moving your tongue out of the way and she was thinking that's what she has to do. Robin said she was listening to Howard do that warm up thing he told Jon about. Howard said his voice was so locked up early on. He said he'd get on the air and his voice would get tight. He said he went to take some lessons and this woman was very nice. He said she taught him some techniques. He said she had him blowing out into hot water and other things. He said he was able to get rid of his New York accent with that. He said he remembers sitting there wondering what the fuck he was doing there. He said he stopped all of that and stuck with the voice he had and that relaxed him.
Howard said SiriusXM is going to have that Jersey for Jersey benefit. He said they used to laugh at them when they moved to Sirius. He said now they have a free app for people to listen on. Howard also got in a plug for Gardein who are sponsoring the show. Howard about some of the stuff they've had from Gardein lately.
Howard said he's going to take a break and get to a few more things. Robin said she has to talk about something first. She said that Tom Brady has registered a trademark and the two things he applied for are ''Tompa Bay'' and ''Tampa Brady.'' Howard said maybe he's going to try to make some dough off of that. Robin said she doesn't get a ring from that. Howard said he likes Tompa Bay. Howard said he was told to get his own name on the internet when that first started. He said he didn't think it was going to be anything and the next thing he knows he can't get his own name. He said he bought some other names and didn't want to give them up. Howard said he's bad with that stuff. He said he should have done like Arnold Palmer did and invent a drink.
Howard said he should have a cranberry juice and vodka and call it a Howard Stern. He said from now on you owe him money if you make one. He said maybe just boil water and he'll call that a Howard Stern.
Howard got Tan Mom on the phone and asked if she's social distancing. Tan Mom said she is not. She asked how they're all doing. She said she actually is on lockdown and she's getting everything delivered to her house. Howard asked if she goes outside to be around other people. Tan Mom said she goes for walks and bike rides. She said her son is coming from Boca to visit. Howard said that fucks up the whole quarantine thing. He said he's coming from another source. Tan Mom said they disinfect before they come into her house. She said they have an outside shower so they wash off out there.
Howard explained to Tan Mom how the virus is spread and how she could still get it even if they wash her son off. Tan Mom said that he's not coming then. Howard said he heard that she's putting screens on her windows to combat the virus. Tan Mom said that she's covering the windows up as much as she can and having the air conditioning run. Howard said then she has her son in and it's all for nothing. Tan Mom said she's not going to have him over then.
Howard said he got a note saying that she's doing a concert to raise money for her own tanning bed. Tan Mom said she's buying her own tanning bed and the money is going to a charity instead. She said that all started out as a joke. She said she's paying for the tanning bed herself.
Howard asked who told her that the screens will work to keep the virus out. Tan Mom said that her father did. She said he's really tan. She said that he's like that guy who is really tan that they always talk about. She said that he taught her to get tan. Howard said she could have stopped that trend right there instead of having her kids do it. Tan Mom said her kids are smart and they won't do what she has done. Howard said he never thought that tanning was learned in the home but she told him that she wasn't bright enough to stop the cycle. He said that's fascinating.
Tan Mom talked about how much she loves to sit in the sun and bake. She said her kids don't like doing that. She said they do have a healthy glow though. Howard asked if anyone ever asks her if they're really her kids because they should look like a rotisserie chicken. Tan Mom said they don't get it. She said they all roll their eyes when he goes out to tan.
Howard asked if she has had any cancerous lesions removed yet. Tan Mom said not at all. She said nothing is wrong. She said it's unbelievable.
Howard said when he first got to meet Tan Mom he thought her kids would look like human footballs. He said it turns out they have a healthy glow. He said that's something.
Howard said he knows she's raising money for a charity. He asked what song she's going to sing and does she know the lyrics. Tan Mom said she's going to be singing and they're selling tickets online. She said they have a hang out session too. She said she's going to be performing ''Free 2 Be Me.'' Howard asked if she knows the song now. Tan Mom said she's not going to sing now. Howard said this is what he was afraid of. He said she should be able to sing it. She sang a few words but that was it.
Howard said they say that part of the proceeds go to charity. He said that the other part must be going to the tanning chair. Howard asked how much is going to charity. Tan Mom said it's 50/50. Howard said 50 percent will go to God's Love We Deliver. Howard asked how many tickets have sold so far. Tan Mom said 30. Howard asked how much tickets are. Tan Mom said they're $7.50. Howard said that if they round that up to $10 then how much is it. Tan Mom said it's 300. Howard said the charity will get 50 percent of that. Tan Mom said that's right. She said it's just going to be a little party. Howard said he's shocked that 30 people bought tickets to it.
Howard said he'd like to interview the 30 people who bought tickets. He got a note saying that JD bought 2 accidentally. JD said he bought one and wasn't sure if it went through so he bought another. Howard said he has a theory that JD actually bought 30 tickets accidentally. JD said he checked his bank statement and it as just 2.
Howard asked Tan Mom if she's doing anything else to promote the show. Tan Mom said she had a radio station that they were talking to. She said they're going to do it on Friday night when everyone is just hanging around. Howard asked if she will be dressed up for this. Tan Mom said she will be with her family so she'll probably do some outfit changes. She said she has some appetizers that she wanted to share but she can't. Howard said he's thinking back to the days when she came into the studio and she showed some ''side meat'' on the couch. He said that might get some people to react during her show. Tan Mom said in the name of crickets she did not. Howard said Sal said it looked like a slice of baloney. He said he didn't agree with that.
Howard said there are still 484 tickets left for anyone who wants to join the concert. He said it's on Zoom so there's a limit of 500.
Howard said he has run out of time with Tan Mom. She was talking about all of the things she's not able to do right now. Howard said he wishes her luck with the concert and all of that. He said he hopes the pandemic brings her closer to her husband. She said they'll talk about that next time. Robin said she's not sure if he's even there. Howard said he's there. Tan Mom said he is there. Howard asked if she calls him Dragon Breath. She said she calls him Death Breath. Howard let her go a short time later.
Howard said Andy Cohen is on the phone. He took the call and gave him some plugs for Real Housewives. Andy said it's coming back tonight. He said it's a slow burn this season. Howard asked how he's feeling. Andy said he's feeling good. He said he did a virtual workout for the first time in a month. He said the tightness is back in his chest after that.
Andy said he has to add one more point to the conversation about John Mayer and the thank you note. He said Howard seems to think this was a pre-planned public flogging to make fun of Howard but it was really a spontaneous conversation. He said he asked John to do a show and tell and he had never heard about this note before. He said when he brought it on it wasn't about making fun of it. He said they didn't set out to make fun of it. He said Robin came on and made everything worse. Robin said that's her job.
Howard said it's all irrelevant. He said he believes that he was having a conversation with John Mayer who he thinks Andy wants to fuck so hard. Andy said that's not the driving factor in their friendship. Howard said he's his type. He said he likes that thin, twinkie kind of guy. He said he would fuck him in the ass if he gave him the go ahead.
Howard said his perception of it is that he's friends with John who is a fabulous talent. He said he came on his show and he sent him a note. He said John knew that he had forgotten the comma. Andy said he doesn't think he did. Howard said he did. He said he just got a note from John and he typed it on a typewriter. He said he took the letter out to be funny about it. He said he's not angry with either of them. He said he's upset that he had written that note and left the comma out. He said he deserved a better note. Andy said he was goofing on it in a different way. Howard said he was embarrassed. He said he felt like a fool.
Andy said it wasn't pre-meditated on either of their behalf. Howard said it was on John's part. He said he chose his note to show off. He said he took it out to show to America. Andy said it wasn't for the whole country. Howard said he could have shown him things from when he dated Katy Perry or Jessica Simpson or his guitars. Andy said he didn't have access to everything. Howard said the glee on Andy's face shows that he loved it. He said he's not mad at him though. Andy and Howard argued about that back and forth a couple of times.
Howard said he wrote a note to John and told him that he's not mad at him. He said he was embarrassed by leaving that comma out. He said he should have written a better letter.
Howard said he was fine with this whole thing. He said now he's getting mad at Andy for making him think that he's an idiot. He said it was clear he was the brunt of the joke. He said that it was obvious that they were doing a bad routine and John knew that it was a mistake. Andy said they didn't work out a bit.
Howard got Ralph on the phone and asked what he thinks. Ralph said last week he thought it was ridiculous but he went back and listened and they were clearly fucking with Howard. He said it was the worst acting ever. He said now Andy is being a pussy about it. He said just admit that they were fucking with him. Andy said he wouldn't be doubling down if he did. Howard said he should just admit it. Andy said that it was funny when they pointed out that the comma was missing. He said he thought it was funny for a different reason. He said he has failed in his attempt but he loves the show. He said he feels bad for Beth and he wants to thank the fans for all of the nitpicks from last week.
Howard took a call from Mariann from Brooklyn who said she thinks Andy knows what he did and he should admit it and apologize. She said he just wants air time on Andy's show. She said it's not the first time he's thrown Howard under the bus. She said that he is treating Howard like shit and he owes him an apology.
Howard said he wants to put this to rest. He said he loves Andy and thinks he's terrific. Howard said he loves that John Mayer came on the show and did his birthday party. He said don't insult his intelligence about the letter though. He went over the story again with him. He took another call from Mariann from Brooklyn who went off on Andy about wanting air time. Andy said he has his own shows so he's not thirsty for air time.
Howard said he admits that he was wrong about the comma. He said he wishes that John had written him personally instead. Andy said he's not taking away from his feelings. He said he loves them and told them to stay healthy. Howard said calm down with the working out.
Gary said that Andy got a bunch of dick pics last week and High Pitch Erik sent one and wonders if he has seen it. Andy said if he saw it he doesn't remember. He said he may have deleted it. Gary said he sent it to him so he will forward it to him.
Howard asked how many pics he got. Andy said there were about 60. He said some of them were straight guys. Howard said he got a cock avalanche.
Andy got High Pitch Erik's dick pic and said it's like 3 pieces of candy under a belly. Howard said he must have a lot of penis on his computer. He asked how many of the pics are white and how many are black. Andy said he thinks that they were all white. He said he doesn't think there are many black guys who sent them. He said there weren't many Asians either. He said it was also 90 percent straight guys. He said they were asking to be reviewed. He said he felt like he should do it because he did ask Howard to get the dick pics to him. Howard said they should have a show where they have Andy rating dicks. He said they can have George Takei on to do that too. Howard asked if there were uncircumcised penis in the pics. Andy said there were some. Howard asked if he would prefer to have a good looking guy with a High Pitch Erik cock or a nice cock with an ugly guy. Andy said he would pick a good looking guy with an Erik cock. Howard said that's because he's a top and he'd just fuck the guy in the ass.
Howard wrapped up with Andy and told him to drop the whole John Mayer thing. Howard said he'll be watching Real Housewives of Beverly Hills tonight. He said Andy created it and he will never forget that.
Howard said Andy is a nice guy but he knows what he was doing. Robin said he wasn't there so he is reading into it a little bit. Howard said he knows what he saw on TV. Robin said that part can't be verified but they did make fun of him on TV. Howard said that's it.
Howard got Benjy on and said he's such a weirdo. He said he can never get his camera worked out for meetings. He said he's constantly moving around.
Howard said he was talking about this show Unorthodox on Netflix. He said Benjy got into their meeting yesterday and started yelling about how it wasn't so great. He said he wrote what happens at the end of the show and spoiled it for everyone. He said Jason got upset because he was looking forward to watching it. Benjy said he didn't write it like that. Jason said he wrote that the ending was trite and said what happens. Benjy said he didn't know what he wrote was a spoiler. He said he doesn't think it was. Jason said it was. He said you don't tell the end of a story to someone who hasn't seen it.
Howard asked why he was wrong about Andy and John. Benjy said he knows he was upset about it. He said it was a very legitimate thing to him. He said John could have read it the wrong way and Andy corrected him. Howard said he didn't see it that way. Benjy said it seems crazy that he doesn't think that someone would cherish his note that much. Howard said Benjy doesn't understand what he's even saying. He said he just told Robin what he was thinking at the time.
Howard said he heard that Benjy is masturbating every day now. Benjy said he's always done that. He said he didn't do it every night in the hospital. Howard said you shouldn't do it there at all. Benjy asked why not.
Howard said he heard Benjy is into ballerina porn too. Benjy said he looked up the porn and ballerinas are very attractive so he looked into it. Howard said they're not real ballerinas. Robin said the step mothers Howard is into aren't really step mothers. Benjy said the ballerinas in porn are good looking. He said it's so sexy. Howard said he'll have to look it up.
Fred did a little bit of his Benjy Puppet thing and spoiled some movies. They were movies that everyone has seen. He mentioned Darth Vader being Luke's father and Benjy said he hasn't seen Star Wars so he actually did spoil that for him.
Howard asked Benjy about how he was suggesting that the mayor forfeits his salary while the city is shut down. Robin said that's one of the things she was talking to him about online. Benjy said Robin did the same thing he did. Robin said she told him to shut up. She said she's tired of people who do nothing telling people what to do.
Howard said Benjy doesn't use a knife to chop up raw potatoes. He said he chews them up and spits them on a plate. Robin said that's ridiculous. Benjy said it's so much easier to do it that way. He said he would never do that if someone came over. He said he wouldn't do that to Howard. Fred did more of his Benjy Puppet voice.
Howard said Benjy also drinks sardine juice from the can. Benjy said he does it if he's making something with it. He said it must be healthy so he drinks it.
Howard cut Benjy off when he brought up something from the show Unorthodox. He said he loves when Robin and Benjy fight on Facebook. Robin said she doesn't go on that much but he always has something ridiculous pop up.
Howard said he was going to get to more stuff but it's 10 o'clock and his internet will probably cut out soon.
Howard said tune into 101 next week for that special. He said he had so much to get to today. He said he knows they'll get bumped off any minute now. He said he has to thank Bon Jovi and Andy Cohen for coming on today.
Howard said he has to thank Paul McCartney for coming on. Robin said Governor Cuomo too. Howard said someone told them that Paul came on the show shortly after 9/11 and he was on the Ed Sullivan show after the Kennedy assassination. He said now Paul is on during this pandemic. Howard read some feedback about the interview. Someone said it reminded him of the Dana Carvey impression of Paul that he did when he was on. Howard had the guys play a clip of Dana doing his impression.
Howard said they had some tech problems yesterday and he was off the air when Paul got on. He said so many people wrote him about that. He went through some of the feedback about that. Howard said he's getting terribly frustrated during this time but everyone is struggling and they have to change the way they live. He said it's not fair but he's taking a breath when he has problems. He said we're all struggling. Robin said nothing is the way we want it to be. Howard said Robin stepped in and took over and kept Paul occupied.
Howard said they could avoid the technical problems by pre-taping the show but they decided to do it all live. He said he wants to do it live.
Howard said Jeff the Drunk got pissed off that he wasn't able to get through to the show during the McCartney interview. Howard read some of the comments Jeff got about the post he made on Twitter about not being able to get through. Howard said they can only get to so many calls. Gary said Jeff is still pissed today because he still can't get on. Howard said he thanks Jeff for caring so much about the show that he does that. Howard wrapped up and ended the show around 10:10am.
Today's show was over around 10:10am.
