    Dahl was more irreverent for his time then Stern was ever. Stern had the good fortune of being in the biggest(by far) radio market in the country so his name got out there more than Dahl's did. I still remember Steve's song parodies like (to the tune of Pink Floyd's The Wall) "Hey Gacy! Leave those kids alone! All in all you're just a nother kid in the crawl...."

    When Dahl came on the scene, radio was DJs announcing song titles and saying how cool the record was. Nothing else. Dahl threw that model on its head. The first linked clip he says "penis" and "masturbation" on live air. That was unheard of and sinful back then.These clips are pre-1980.

    That's a stretch. It's pretty hard to be more irreverent than Stern saying he wants to fuck Mancow's dead daddy's corpse.

    There were/are plenty of guys who were/are better than Howard across the country. What sets Howard apart was his ability to self promote and him being in the right place at the right time. I think if Steve Dahl was in NYC instead of the Mid West, he might have had as big of a career as Howard.

    When Howard was actually at the top of his game, he was great. But there were a lot of guys out there who could have had his career if they were in the right place at the right time and new how to self promote like Howard.

    Thanks for posting those classic Dahl clips. But I think they are post-1980. The first clip is from WLS. The second is from 1981, the day before the hostages are scheduled to be released.
