Discussion in 'The Howard Stern Show' started by Rhiannon, Sep 30, 2015.
How did Howchie and Ralph meet? Please pile on.
If memory serves me right, Ralph hooked his star to Stern during the Channel 9 show. He did his makeup and started dressing him back then.
He was a caller around 1985 when he was in high school and then he wormed his way into providing some props and a penis costume for some Club Bene nonsense and then costumes and props for the Ch. 9 show.
Rest stop on JerseyvTurnpike
They met in the brambles
It was either Sherry's Berries or Hair Club for Men that brought them together.

A good question...
How did he get the channel 9 show then? What kind of resume could he have provided? Maybe it was love at first sight with Howard.
That whole relationship with these two really makes it hard for me to think they are not an item. It's just goes far beyond schtick into bizzarroland. Especially with some of those photos - specifically the one on the plane. Who looks at your "friend" like that?
What the HELL is this??
the homo room
LOL at the Oyster Bar.
Yep. And it makes me crazy. Ralph was a fucking CALLER. But Howie will tease fred about his dial a date marriage.
Gary's told the story of how Howard told him to "call that guy Ralph" for some props and shit. Gary tried to explain to Ralph how rare that was and how lucky he was that Howard wanted him to do some work and Ralph already started acting like the asshole he is ignoring Gary.
Howard was impressed by Ralph's sense of style
Picked him the perfect Wig:
Thirty years ago, so Howard was a 31-year-old married father with the number one radio show in New York, and Ralph was an 18-year-old fatherless boy listening in Jersey. Makes perfect sense that they would become lifelong friends.
And Howard gives Fred hell for meeting his soul mate on Dial-a-Date.
