    According to twitter, Steve is about to check out...One of the earliest celebrity friends of the show...never mentioned anymore. Will Howard address this next week, or is Steve another old friend that Howie chooses to forget?

    Comedian Steve Rossi In Hospice


    (Las Vegas, NV) — Legendary comedian Steve Rossi has been transferred to hospice care after a battle with stage 4 cancer. Rossi is half of the world famous comedy team of Allen and Rossi. He lives in Las Vegas.

    Steve Rossi teamed up with Marty Allen in 1957, where they became America’s number one comedy team. They appeared on more than 700 television shows, including 44 appearances on the Ed Sullivan Show.

    Rossi’s personal assistant, Christine Kramar, says he believes in the power of prayer. He is living the last days in accordance with his faith and is grateful for your prayers. Mayor Carolyn Goodman talked with us this morning…

    Kramar says they will keep the community updated on his social media sites.

    A huge part of the show early on. Always a good sport.

    Actually I'm guessing next week is a vacation week, but will Howie mention Steve whenever he does return?

    Dick Clark was a good guy too
    Stern skull fucked his corpse

    Steve was an early rung on the Stern star fuckery ladder.

    Calm down clownfish. Steve begged to be on the show and had zero going on at that point.
    He knew what he was getting in to and you can hardly call Howards use of him star fucking.

    Just pointing out the fact that Stern has a long history of using people and then tossing them aside once he bags a bigger fish.

    Stern having Rossi on his show was for his parents....
    not for the radio fans that had no idea who he was.....including me at the time.

    The most baffling thing about that report is that Rossi has/can afford a personal assistant.

    Not that old. Allen and Rossi were from the 60's. Marty Allen was the bigger star, I think Steve was the straight man.

    Same time period as the Ed Sullivan and Dean Martin shows I think. That was some good black and white TV watching there.

    Now it's time for Topo Gigio! :c

    Rossi was the announcer on those horrendous Fox pilots?
    Leslie West was so so coked up.
    Jackie was hiding under Sterns desk passing him notes.....:jj:

    I like Howard and Robin back then. They ate hamburgers, there was no Beth around and Howard was actually funny.

    Always thought Howard's interviews with Rossi were entertaining...sorry to hear he's in poor health. David Brenner, Steve Rossi...who will be next from the good old days when Howard was funny.
