    Stuttering John kept mentioning that he hopes Artie brings up the guy that Howard blocked from getting a job. John said the reason the Tonight Show gig was kept secret from Howard is that prior to that Howard heard about someone, maybe a staff member, getting a great job offer. Apparently Howard found out about it and behind the scenes was able to block that person from getting the job. John even mentioned that Jay Leno wanted to contact Howard but John told him not to. He was worried Howard would be able to block that gig and fire him so he would be out of two jobs.

    Fast forward to Artie's Podcast and one of John's first questions to Artie was did he reveal the person Stern blocked. Artie said he didn't and they didn't bring it up again. Fucking tease.

    Anyway, who do you think it is? My guess is Billy West. That could be why Billy wont go back on the show.

    I thought Billy left because they only offered him part-time money? Howard played it like Billy's dominant wife was ruining his career (another brilliant Stern prediction).

    Who would want any of his recent staff? Despite what they each seem to think, most of them would be far less valuable without Howard and the team.
    Robin could have been a Oprah-like talk show host, Fred could have been on SNL and Gary could have produced the Regis and Kelly daytime show - yeah right! :ral:

    Seriously.

    Did they not spill it yesterday, cuz I don't see it anywhere.

    It's "Quelle surprise!" anyway, cuz Howard is not at all happy for anyone else's success, ever.

    Way back when I first heard of Howard Stern, he had just started on K-Rock. Gary was still an intern ("Boy Gary", anyone?) at this point, if my memory is correct. Gary had submitted an audition tape to be an MTV VJ. Howard played it and riffed on it mercilessly back then. Jackie and Fred both just destroyed every second of the tape with soundbites and impersonations of Gary sounding like the Gary we have heard them make fun of ever since. Could this be the reference?
