The Howard Stern Show for Tuesday, October 23, 2012 featured the following highlights:
1. Yup, more phone problems: After a complete overhaul of the Stern Show phone system last week, Tuesday morning’s show opened with Howard Stern announcing that the new system had crashed and all of the phone lines were down. Howard Stern said that his team has talked to everyone at Sirius XM including Mel Karmazin in the hopes of fixing the problem, but there’s still a ghost in the machine. After more than six years without phone problems, the Stern Show telecommunications system got glitchy this summer and has never recovered. Stern has voiced completely unconfirmed suspicions that “shenanigans” are at play–since he’s currently suing Sirius XM for $300 million.
2. Whitest Rap Battle in History: In what will likely go down as the greatest terrible rap battle in radio history, Sal Governale aka “Pouchy G” battled Jon Leiberman aka “2 Live Jew” in a war of the words. The battle was judged by legitimate rappers DJ Whoo Kid and Loaded Lux. Governale rapped about the plight of the Jews, while Leiberman freestyled on Tim Sabean’s “Poopgate” scandal. While both performers were incredibly bad, the judges gave the upper hand to Sal for his dope(y) rhymes. See a video clip of Jon and Sal’s rap battle here
3. DJ Whoo Kid’s wild interview: Before DJ Whoo Kid passed judgment on the Stern Show rap battle, he granted Howard Stern a graphic thirty minute interview about the life of a superstar DJ. DJWK currently tours with Eminem, and talked openly about the 8,000+ women he estimates he’s had sex with while on tour. He also spoke about his “arrangement” with his wife–who accepts that he sleeps with other women. “She’s Japanese,” explained DJ Whoo Kid.
4. Cougartown stars torment Eric the Actor: “Cougartown” power couple Bill Lawrence and Christa Miller Lawrence called in to the Stern Show to talk about the show’s move to TBS in January 2013. More importantly, the couple confirmed that they’ve arranged for Ronnie “The Limo Driver” Mund to guest star on an upcoming episode–rather than Eric the Actor. ETA called in to the show to plead for a part, but then said “no” to a long series of suggested roles. Eric refused to play gay, ride a dog, play a Nazi, play a victim of pedophilia, play a parrot or play Christa’s new baby. Ronnie Mund said he was open to anything, and landed the part. Bill left the door open for a future part for Eric.
