    (*edited with 30 mins of audio added)
    First off, special thanks to "Bye You" for providing most of this Winter/Spring of 2002 content to put this together.

    This is a saga some have seen an excerpt of and that is Spencer Kobren LA radio host who nearly got kicked off the air for taking calls on his hair loss solutions radio show called THE BALD TRUTH. BUT the emanations of incident seemed to be lost.

    Basically in 2002 on Kobren's show (on a HSS LA affiliate) he took calls from a gaggle of people who had been around Wigward and swore he wears a wig. A few days later a HSS caller tells Wigward these calls were happening and he tries to play it cool. BUT the very next day 5 minutes into Wigward's own show he insecurely puts the co-host of TBT Dave Solazzo on to browbeat him and more or less make homophobic ("Mr. Gay Rights" 2013) bitter comments to him. Solazzo and Wigward end up making a $50,000 bet over whether Wigward's hair is real. Wigward hangs up on him.

    Then Kobren explains how he actually took the bet and Wigward tried to get him kicked off the air behind the scenes. This, as well as not returning BALD TRUTH'S calls to honor the bet. This is basically the 1/2 hour A to Z of it. And thanks again to "Bye You" for helping further expose the wigged snake-oil serial liar once again for the flim-flam, yellow-belly huckster he is.

    @1:25 "People can't believe a 48 year old guy has a full head of black hair"

    OK so I guess now a 60 yr old man has a full head of jet black hair.:rolleyes:


    @1:40 "My mothers father had jet black hair well into his 90's."

    Ummm I'd like to see that. No way.:rolleyes:


    Medical on hair loss:
    Men whose fathers had experienced hair loss were 2.5 times more likely to experience hair loss themselves, regardless of the mother's side of the family.

    I WISH I made that up, it's actually a real niche show in LA where ALL they do is talk about hair loss solutions and everything under that umbrella.

    Howard evidently gave them like 3 shows worth.

    And "you can't PROVE I'm bald." interesting. :bigthink

    Hahhahahah that's a good quote & stat you post, and they're several others. Artie (7:30) at the end of the first call(s) goes "SINCE I STARTED THIS SHOW, YA KNOW HOW MANY PEOPLE ASK ME IF YOUR HAIR IS REAL???"

    Thanks again for being so clutch with that hard to get audio. He sounds SOOO insecure here, and the the Kobren rep is a little more feisty than marksfriggin had me believe. He actually continues to doubt Wigward's hair throughout and it WIGWARD that hung up on him lest us forget!

    I got quote the archive from 2002 up until Artie left.

    What helped was that I listened to it within the past year so I could place it. I have a weird memory like that.

    You really do, because I had thoroughly gone through 2002 and couldn't track it down. What pisses me off is how much longer that Dave Solazzo call could have gone if Wigward didn't puss out and hang up.

    I'm surprised he took the call. The whole thing makes no sense to me. First 4 minutes of the show discussing this dopey Godfather play then BAM right into this phone call. Brought the show to a screeching halt.

    It was 3:05 am for the guy on the phone, right?

    It just makes no sense. :uscratch:

    Actually Howard looks like he's 30 in his tweet. A young man of his age should have a full head of jet black hair.

    I know, I feel like Wig was so insecure that he had to try to get in front of it. He hoped Solazzo/Kobren would be so intimidated by him that Solazzo would back off entirely which he did not, and it caught Wig off guard.

    Great work as always ARM! Howard and Beth are equally delusional....they both are grotesque humanoid beings.

    Thx KB, and I think it's VERY tough to doubt all our theories when you listen to all this.

    Thx LT, I'm sure if we all dig or wig hard enough like "Bye You" there's probably even more damning evidence out there in audio.

    hahah classic. As soon as the guy asked, he did not say "no" right away.. he evaded the question and started rambling, attacking the other radio program!

    This is, in my opinion, the real reason Howard claims to have to be home by 9 PM. Toni, his hair lady, is there to wash, de-louse, dye and re-glue the poodle pelt back onto his fucking scalp every couple of nights. I'm sure it takes several hours, and this is what created his idiotic curfew. :facepalm:
