    I just listened to Howard 100 News where the lead story is about Debbie the Pet Lady threatening her former AGT partner and heard Gary discussing the Sam Kinison "retrospective" they'll be running sometime soon.

    Sam Kinison died on April 10, 1992.
    I can't believe it's been 20 years since Sam died. I've lost all track of time. I always say, "Hey- I was a faithful, regular listener to THSS for 17 years..." but goddamn... it's been over TWENTY years!

    Those mornings Sam would come in it was unlike anything I've ever heard on radio. The guy was such an insane, coke-fueled madman... he made me laugh so goddamned hard.
    Whether he phoned in or actually sat in for the show, it was never nothing more than the greatest moments I ever experienced listening.

    TWENTY YEARS! Can you fucking believe this shit???
    Goddamn. I got OLD. :facepalm:

    Sam's 1st visit to the show. Enjoy:

    Can you imagine today's Howard interviewing Sam back then? Completely different (and boring) interview.

    Really!!??
    That's remarkable, Spazz... I mean, assuming you were fan of Howard back when Howard's show was quite a bit more than just one 3 hour borefest.

    Retrospective hasn't aired yet but this might work for you (from 1988):

    I caught what I could with Howard, considering it's the heart of the damn bible belt. Not on radio, but we got the !E show. And one of the theaters ran Private Parts and I saw that. :jj: But I'd followed Sam with TV, appearances recordings, and HBO specials.
    I started listening nonstop to Howard when I moved to NY 14 years ago. From FM to Sirius, and here I is. :ujj:

    But yeah, Sam's at Memorial Park Cemetery in Tulsa. :rip:

    They started it today. I'm hoping they play it all five days and we don't get some best of thing on Friday.

    I first started getting tapes of the show in 1988-9 in trade for concert recordings I had of Dylan. Partial recordings. Not entire shows. The guy would just leave the tape player running and get what he could.
    Then -after a year or so... 1990, I met the woman who is now my wife when she came down to the Delta for a Blues deal & to visit some mutual friends.
    We became buddies & since she lived in NYC I asked if she ever listened to Howard. She said every day and I was like... well, I'll suck your cock for tapes of the show.
    Wait... that must have been someone else... but no... my now-wife began sending me a package every weekend of the previous week's shows.

    yeah, amazingly it's been 20 years. what a shame too.......Sam would have been Insane on Sirius. He was made for it. I'll bet money that the moron who hit his car has done nothing these past 20 years

    Oh man... she gave up right after it became apparent Artie wasn't coming back.
    Actually now that I think about it, she'd gotten tired of Artie always showing up fucked up on drugs and Howard pretending not to know what was going on.
    She was a huge fan long before she met me.
    And she's cool as can

    I thought Howard was made for it too. Sadly, Sam would probably be doing O&A now. Fucking shit pisses me off! Howard and Sam would have been EPIC uncensored! Sam and Artie doing the news would be the stuff of radio legend! :satanfire: Fiiiiiirrrre!!!
