    Tomorrow marks the 20th Anniversary of when a "Mr. Robert Higgins" got through to Peter Jennings on Live TV.
    Those were the days when the Stern show was still funny.
    So Sit back & Enjoy, my friends. And Happy Anniversary!

    The recap of the call with Al Michaels (and Billy West) was another great bit.

    "...something in code at the end that's indicative of ...a certain radio host"

    This might be my favorite phony phone call of all time.

    Not to derail...but I'm reading this right now. Excellent book. :sad:
    I hope Fred Goldman lives long enough to plunge a knife deep in OJ's neck.

    I agree but I do have a problem how he benefited from his son's death with his radio program,etc.

    Howard would ignore if it happened today.

    OJ's life now is worse than death.
    I hope he dies the day after he gets out of prison.

    Jennings: We have on the phone with us as well Robert Higgins, who lives in the neighborhood and is on the ground and can see inside the van. Mr. Higgins.


    Caller: Ah, yeass, ah, how are you?


    Jennings: Ah, just about as tense as you are, sir.


    Caller: Oh, my Lord, this is quite tenses.


    Jennings: What can you see?


    Caller: Ah, what I'm lookin' at ri' now is I'm lookin' at the van, and I see OJ kinna' slouchin' down lookin' very very upset. Now lookee here, he look very upset. I don' know what gon' be doin'.


    Jennings: Can you... can you... can you see him doing anything specific? Is he merely sitting there?


    Caller: He is just a-sittin' 'round, you know, just a-lookin' like he be very nervous


    Jennings: Can you hear anything, Mr. Higgins?


    Caller: It's just too much commotion, I here in the back of a news van, so I can' really hear that goo' but I can see it all. An' I see OJ. I see OJ, man, and he looks scared. An' I would be scared 'cause there's cops all deep in this.


    Jennings: Thank you, Mr. Higgins.


    Caller: An' Bobba Bouey to y'all!


    Jennings: The driveway of O. J. Simpson's home in Brentwood... Clearly an effort being made to have him come out of the vehicle... In the doorway of the house: his friend, Al Cowlings...


    Michaels: Peter, by the way, just for the record, this is Al Michaels. That was a totally farcical call.


    Caller: Ah!


    Jennings: Ahm.


    Michaels: Lest anybody think that that was somebody who was truly across the street that was not. He said something in code at the end that's indicative of the mentioning of the name of a certain radio talk show host.


    caller: Ah!


    Jennings: OK, thanks.


    Michaels: He was not there.


    Jennings: OK, we have them on every coast. Thank you very much.

    Jail for a 60-plus year old man is Hell on earth.

    Makes me so sad to hear this clip......He was once a great radio guy. Now he's a PC faggot.

    What modern day Howie seems to forget is that the freewheeling, unfiltered show which allowed people to show their bigotry, actually showed what morons these people were. Allowing them to spout shit and then make fun of them behind their back was far more effective than editing out anything offensive.
