    Was it because he let his phone number go out over the air ? Was it Slobbo ?

    Guess I should clarify that he gave 5000 to a staff member for accidentally giving his number on the air. Later in the show he gave another staff member a 'taste' and wrote him a check for 200.

    I'm a week behind, thanks for that. I'm really starting to enjoy their show.

    Ant uses that if he's doing a phone-call impersonation, or his "In the future" routine.

    Big Foot claims Stern reached in his pocket one time and gave him an extra $100 and shook his hand after they went off the air.

    I don't know which is more unbelievable, the money or the handshake...

    None of that happened. Stern only spends money given by sponsors, and no fucking way he touched Bigfoot's grimy hand.

    Also, Opie wrote out some "bonus" checks for a few show members last winter/spring, IIRC. Mars ran right to the bank with his, and came back proclaiming the checks were "very legit".

    Stern giving $200 to someone would be like a normal person taking a penny and cutting it up into 4 or 5 pieces and giving you one of those pieces.

    "I was just about to say that!"

    He kills me when someone like Wendy, who is not really capable of making her own money, yet has provided so many classic moments to the show, asks him for money, and he turns to Gary to ask if there are any sponsor gifts. I get that once you start handing out cash to one person, a million other hands open up, but c'mon, it's Wendy! She'll never tell!

    I'm pretty sure that is taxed and it takes a month or longer to even arrive.
