I’m amused. It seems like every few months, entertained fans(mostly guys) of the Howard Stern Show write to tell me that they just heard me on the show.
Interesting. Apparently, I’ve been getting people laughing so much that the Howard Stern Show keeps re-running an interview I unknowingly gave to the show in back in October 2007.
As I’ve laughed about on this blog several times, I flat out hung up mid-interview, as I explained here, and then then later here.
Yes, you got that right. I abruptly ended an interview, ending a phone call (politely, I think) with the Howard Stern Show!
Only I didn’t know I was being interviewed for the Howard Stern Show. NO one told me, as you can learn here. (And it’s been some six years since I listened to the show, when I lived in L.A. and sat in my car a lot.)
Anyhow, I’m taking it all in good humor, even if I’m repeatedly the butt of ridicule and laughter. FYI, here are two comments I just received:
Here’s Allen from Maryland:
"Just heard an amusing "interview" with you on the Howard Stern Show. Not only do you dispense good informaiton <CQ> but you’re a good sport as well."
Surprised that it aired yet again — this must be at least the third or fourth time, guys have written to me — I wrote back to Allen to find out more. He further explained in a follow-up e-mail:
"I heard it on Friday morning and couldn’t stop
laughing. Hi Pitch Eric is the one that they use for phony phone calls a lot on the
Meanwhile, Michael from Washington, D.C., also contacted me:
"Loved you on the Jack
and Rod Show!!!"
He also wrote back with more information, when I asked:
funny. You seemed to take the joke well. I think they aired it] yesterday [Wed., Aug. 13]… It was when the show started…they play some ‘bits’ before
Howard goes on air."
Thanks, guys, for keeping me in the loop. Fans of the Howard Stern Show, keep writing to let me know when the piece re-airs again.
And feel free to keep laughing both with and at me!
