    Hey all,

    I just got off the email with Fred. He'd love to do an interview for Dawg's. Over time I will try and interview all the old school wack packers but I thought who would be better to start off with then the God Father of the Pack, Fred! I can't think of anyone that hates Fred and having spoken with him in the past I was sure he would agree as he's just that nice of a guy.

    If you have any questions you'd like to know the answer to post them below. I can't promise he'll answer them but the best questions will get asked. He wants to do the interview by phone, between his speech impediment and my years of running light boards for rock bands this should be interesting :c

    Has he seen a medical doctor for his affliction? And is there treatment available for it? Is it a price issue that's preventing him from seeking medical help?

    Try to get him to post here Vash. He would be among friends here and you would avoid all the speech issues. I have talked to him a couple of times at the other place. He should be here anyway. Regardless, great job and much respect for your work on the blog. :hat:

    Ask him if he still likes Howard personally? Also, did he feel putting it out there for THSS was good for him in the long run (i.e. the benefits outweighed the costs).

    Can't resist this one... was it ever obvious Howard had a wig?

    i was at a bababooey book signing years ago.. for private parts i was prolly 16 and booey was signing books. his mom was there, ray stern and elephant boy. my friend who at the time was very threatening looking... shaved head goatee 300 lbs 6'2... well i got everyone to sign my book even garys mom who lord knows why she was signing books she just grabbed my book... fred did NOT want to sign my book.. finally he relented when my friend threatened him grabbed him up close. it was so funny. he started to sign elephant boy. my friend was like what are you a fucking retard??? sign ya name so he signed his name.. fred schreiber. my friend is dead now so that makes that memory just a lil more special and funny.

    poor elephant boy lol

    It's not fake. If it were, he'd act goofy on the board, but he doesn't. In text, you can see he thinks very clearly and is a really nice guy.
    I used to know a kid in school that talked exactly like him. Came from a poor family. It wasn't until he was out of high school and making his own money, that the doctor found that that little piece of skin under his tongue went too far out towards the tip. Once it was clipped, he spoke very clearly.

    Fred might be the only truly nice person associated with Howard's "Wack Pack" at any time in the show's history.
    Always enjoyed chatting with him back on SFN when he used to post.
    Complete opposite of that asshole Ass Napkin Ed who hid behind his VIP status to start crap with members.
    Fred was always a good spirited guy and he was a funny poster, too.

    I'd like to know if he ever banged any of the female fans or guests of the show from the K-Rock era -especially IHeartNY.
    Exactly how much nookie did he get from being a regular on THSS? << That would be my question.

    Isn't he from Cleveland? If so, what part of town?

    Not from Cleveland, theyre from Queens. And i speak to his brother weekly, several times a month for my business. Phil has the same voice as fred and the first time i spoke to him i thought it was Fred. Over time, Phil told me that they are brothers. I dont have the guts to ask why thry both have the same exact speech impediment.
