    Last week I spent $1 plus $3.99 shipping on an unopened VHS copy of "Radio Rebel," the 1996 A&E Biography of Howard Stern. It was produced in anticipation of the 1997 non-blockbuster Private Parts, which here is optimistically/naively referred to as Howard's "first film."

    A highlight for me in this largely complementary profile is the inclusion of Scott Passeser, a high school friend of Howard's in the predominantly white Rockville Centre (where the Sterns moved after Howard's freshman year at Roosevelt). Scott confirms Howard's nickname, Gunkard, and reveals that it may even come as a surprise to Howard to learn that that's what they called him. (Howard denies anyone ever called him that behind his back.)

    I can't believe I ever thought that asshole was funny.

    Not only thought he was funny but defended him to people.

    Howard's yearbook sure doesn't look like his senior year as shown in Private Parts.

    Gunky lived in Roosevelt only 1 year after it went black, and claims that he grew up in a black community. That is a perfect example of how psychologicaly fucked up and delusional he is.

    Howard's school was 30% white when his family moved from Roosevelt, even though Howard says (even in this A&E biography) that he was the only white person there. In Private Parts the book, he says they moved because his black friend was beaten up by brothers for hanging out with a honky. (Way to show solidarity to the kid, Sterns!). In an interview in the early '80s, Howard said it was a great experience living in integrated Roosevelt. And in Private Parts the book, he said his Roosevelt school fights were with Polish kids. (He later created stories about brothers whipping with with chains daily, changing his entire Roosevelt experience.)

    Rockville Centre is just two miles from Roosevelt, but was almost all white when the Sterns moved there. And Howard's new neighborhood was almost all Jewish.

    So the story went from living in a 70% black community for 1 year to him being beaten with chains everyday his entire childhood? That's Gunkarific!

    Just came across this and it deserves a bump.

    I thought Howard was an outcast in high school because "the blacks" beat him up? "It was like a jungle out there, Robin!"

    Is the term "gunk" an east coast thing (like on-line vs in-line)? Because, in the real world, gunk means crud or dirt. So was Howard cruddy or dirty, did he stink, was he greasy, or did they really mean GAWKY? That's way more appropriate.

    Never liked the term gunky because it just doesn't apply.

    Simple Definition of gunk
    • : material that is dirty, sticky, or greasy
    Simple Definition of gawky
    • : awkward and clumsy
