    I've tried and tried and got put on hold for eons before I fell asleep. Other shows like Miserable Men, Riley and Jay Thomas are relatively easy to get on....trying to talk to Howard is futile.

    I tried in the mid 90s, once. The line was busy.

    If you learn how to work the system...it's an easy system to work.

    I've never had much a of problem with getting put right through.

    .....make magic...make more.

    I've somehow managed to make a few well known celebs storm out of the Stern studios.
    ...some in anger....some in frustration...and one in...well..I'll just say that it was "quite a funny scene"...that ended
    up being cut out of the E Show at the time.
    ..and for some very strange reason...the very next time that person appeared in the Stern Show everything seemed
    to be a whole new ballgame.

    There was a show a year or so ago where Howard was talking about Tourette's and I called in and talked to Steve Brandano. I wanted to tell Howard to watch the South Park episode where Cartman fakes having Tourette's so that he can get away with saying curse words. I hung up after a while.

    "South, what? Oh. Yeah. I dunno, Listen, people think I watch cartoons but fact is, who gives a shit."

    "What about Spider-Man?"

    "Spider-Man's different Robin. I like comics, I don't like dem cartoons, dem adult cartoons. Like everyone's always asking if I watch dat one show with the yellow... Robin what's dat show?"

    "The Simpsons?"

    "Yeah, everyone always asks if I watch dat but I dunno, listen, fact is, quite frankly, who gives a shit? It's making me mental!"

    How do they screen the calls? Do they quiz you about the show?

    There is a special number you have to call to get through. That's why Bobo & Mariann are always on the phone. Do you really think they call the 1-800 number?

    I asked you in another thread, Winst - Who are you? Stuttering John? AJ Benza? Crazy Cabbie? KC Armstrong? Captain Janks? Who are you? Inquiring minds want to know!

    Who was the SFN member that called TWUS a few times and got Booey all riled up? He had a girl's name, IIRC. Leslie? Lynn? Something like that.

    Anyone else remember that guy?

    Anyone else miss Hank From Baltimore?

    I've gotten through a few times to the "big show" and once to the WUS (WUS was to bitch about Robin talking over Charlie Sheen during the interview). HSS: Once was about wishing Robin congrats on the marathon and to hear "COCK in the ASS," another was to ask when they had the IQ doctor in the studio if Robin's G-cups had anything to do with her desirability, and another time to say that I liked hearing Sara Gilbert and that she should be in again. You just have to keep dialing over and over and over until it rings - they'll eventually pick up. Since it's New York-based, you gotta be quick and to the point and they'll throw you on the hold queue.

    My younger brother is a career prank caller. He's gotten on Larry King, Tom Snyder, and many national shows. He also knows the secrets to getting through, but won't tell me. Little prick is no Janks, but he's damn good.

    Yes, I remember, but I'm drawing a blank. He used to be in the listening thread all the time, and he was annoying as fuck!
