"The Howard Stearn Show" - A Slice of Life Comedy

In the summer of 2014, “The Howard Stern Show” is after all these years, a very important fixture in early morning radio listening for New Yorkers, as well as around the world. The Producer is Mr. Gary Dell ’Abate. Currently Mr. Stern and Ms. Robin Quivers (co-host), can be heard over the SiriusXM Radio Networks. Mr. Fred Norris (writer), also doubles with sound effects, along with other comedians. There are special times when writer, Jackie “The Joke Man” Martling, from the old K-Rock Days; is an invited guest.  

Many years ago, I listened every morning to the Howard Stern Show, which was broadcast in New York City on 92.3 FM K-Rock Radio. I started hearing more conversations in the 1980’s and 1990’s by my producer friends about the many “off-color” jokes. You could not go anywhere in the streets of New York City without hearing someone talking about what they had heard that morning on the show. New York City Taxi Drivers loved him, to distract them from traffic jams. Every “Blue Collar Worker” was listening. Everyone who had a sense of humor was calling in to Mr. Stern’s show.

Along with Mr. Stern, was his Co-Host, Ms. Robin Quivers, who gave very lusty laughs to the unique jokes that were often written by Jackie Martling and Fred Norris for the show.

It was hard to tell which were the jokes created by Howard Stern, and which were by another writer. Robin would often throw in her perspective on the conversations which sometimes used her former medical knowledge as a nurse.Mostly, there was a great deal of innuendo about things of a sexual nature. This was why Mr. Stern, soon became known as “The Shock Jock”!

Yes, some straight-laced New Yorkers' might not have liked what they heard, but they kept listening. Since Mr. Stern frequently requested that his guests stop by his studios, it added to the dimension of the rare personalities that can only be born of native New Yorkers'. The entertainment factor was no-holds-barred. Mr. Stern virtually described every detail of his “guests” which then became a verbal side-show spectacle. It did not please everyone, but there was something between the comedy lines that has always had such deep feelings; Mr. Stern was able to project this to his listeners. 

However, Mr. Stern, was not to be denied being outlandish when he promoted his “Private Parts” book and his then famed film with the same name. He decided on a cross-dresser’s female costume to fit his approximately six foot six height, then crossing Fifth Avenue for his Barnes and Noble Book Store Appearance; it was chaos and madness.  I know, because I was there video-taping Mr. Stern and his thousands of fans who turned out for this event.

Hundreds of New York City police were called to keep the peace. These male and female fans felt Mr. Stern’s take on life as “not always being appreciated” was their kind of guy. They had turned out for the book signing to have their precious copy of “Private Parts” signed by Mr. Stern.

Of the many appearances he made in Manhattan, the Boroughs of New York City, and Long Island, he was always generous to me. In fact, I filmed him for almost three hours on one occasion during a Long Island book signing of “Private Parts”. His mother and father greeted me warmly, having recognized me from previous appearances. They respected that I was the only female videographer who had taken the time to film their son. I did meet Mr. Stern’s first wife with his parents, although very briefly, who acknowledged me by waving and saying hello.

I believe one of the last times I saw Mr. Stern in New York city was when he brought his then nine year old daughter to the Peppermint Lounge for a brief evening appearance. Yes, it was one of the first places I had been to see a young Mr. Chubby Checker when I first moved to New York City. It made me feel very sentimental, just like when I now see and hear Mr. Stern on “American’s Got Talent”.
