Adam welcomes Gary Dell’Abate to the studio. Immediately they jump into the early days working for Howard Stern. Adam says he started listening to the show when he first came out to LA. Gary talks about working with Jackie the Joke Man and tries to assess Howard’s situation now that his Sirius contract is coming to a close.
Adam also asks Gary to speak a bit more about his personal history. Growing up in Long Island, meeting Howard, and just the thrill of hearing Howard’s style of radio for the first time. Adam helps to elaborate why so many other hosts suck, and why longform interviews are so interesting.
Adam talks about how he and Jimmy were always fans of Stern, and they couldn’t wait until they got an opportunity to meet him. Adam also talks about once being offered the “Jackie Chair,” and finds out how Gary was officially offered the role of producer. Wrapping up the show, Gary tells a funny story from when Adam was on, and takes a couple listener calls about Robin Quivers, and raising unspoiled kids.
Pick up a copy of Gary’s NY Times Bestselling book, ‘They Call Me Baba Booey.’ Also listen to The Howard Stern Show, and The Wrap Up Show, on Sirius Satellite Radio.
