- Dallas Update: KEGL Loses Audience. 11/14/97. 7:10am
Howard got the ratings from the Dallas market and it looks like KEGL down in Dallas has lost 60 percent of it's listeners! Now that Nationwide Insurance has kicked Howard off the station they've decided to sell KEGL and their other radio stations. Who knows what will happen in the future.
- Howard Speaks To Dr. Remulak. 11/14/97. 7:35am
You may be wondering who the hell Dr. Remulak is. Well he's a guy who calls the radio station and just keeps repeating ''I am Dr. Remulak'' over and over again. The guy has been doing this for about 5 years. He's never tried to get on the air and the only reason he came on the air today was because Stuttering John convinced him to. Dr. Remulak usually gets Stuttering John on the phone when he calls in but sometimes he'll get one of the interns or Steve Grillo. He won't say anything except ''I am Dr. Remulak'' to them. The guy has been talking to Stuttering John a little bit so he found out that the guy has OCD, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. He has to do things a certain number of times before he can continue the rest of his day. He spent about 5 minutes on the phone with Howard but wouldn't speak directly to him. Stuttering John had to relay the questions from Howard. He slipped a couple of times and answered a couple of questions from Robin and Howard. Robin asked him what would happen if he didn't call the show and do this. He responded ''..big zits...'' and went on to his ''I am Dr. Remulak'' rant. He's not annoying, he just repeats himself constantly. Dr. Remulak said his thing a bunch of times real quick before hanging up so he could move on with his day. It was pretty damn funny.
- The Mike Walker Game With Guest Nicole Bass. 11/14/97. 8:15am
Body builder Nicole Bass, who you may have seen in Private Parts, came in to play the Mike Walker game today. She was plugging something but I wasn't paying much attention to what it was.. Howard goofed on her manly features and voice before moving on to the game. Here are this week's stories, one of the stories is false, try to pick it:
Nicole chose number 3 as the false story, Jackie, Howard and Robin all chose number 1 as the false story. The actual false story was number 2. No one got it right this week. Next week Mike Walker will be in the studio live for the first time. Check back then for the whole story!
- Brad Pitt was sent home from a movie set when the makeup department couldn't cover up a giant zit on his face. They later called him Brad Zit.
- After John Lithgow went through a drive up window at a bank a car followed him blowing it's horn. After John hit a parked car he pulled over and freaked out on the guy. It turns out that the guy was just trying to return some money that John left in the drive up tray.
- O.J. Simpson sent his new neighbors a peace offering recently, a Tiffany glass with a can of orange juice concentrate inside. He wanted to thank them for putting up with the craziness.
- John Travolta was kicked out of a courtroom because he was causing a distraction. He was researching the double homicide case for an upcoming movie.
- Author Joyce H. Brown Calls In. 11/14/97. 8:55am
This woman is the author of ''Heavenly Answers for Earthly Challenges''. She's one of those people who claims that she went ''to the other side'' when she was dead. She came back and now she has special powers. She died in her bathtub or something like that and she was then able to float above her body and see herself.

- How Many Push-ups Can Scott The Engineer Do? 11/13/97. 7:05am
Yesterday the whole gang got into a discussion about how many push-ups Scott The Engineer could possibly do. They took bets on it and ran out of time to do it so today Scott had to show his strength or lack of strength as the case may be. Some people thought he would be able to do as many as 5 or more. Well the time came and Scott got down on the floor and attempted to do a few. He managed to do 2 before collapsing on the floor like a beached whale. Stuttering John seemed to think that Scott needed some type of incentive to do more. They eventually offered him $5000 if he could manage 5 push-ups. He made his attempt and came up 2 ½ short. He failed once again. Even the $5000 couldn't do it for him.
- Mary McCormack Calls In. 11/13/97. 7:35am
Mary, the woman who played Howard's wife in ''Private Parts'' called in to plug the fact that she'll be appearing at her father's ice cream stores this week. She's a little embarrassed by this little appearance but she's doing it for her father. Howard signed 18 books for her to give away and she'll also be giving away the last 3 Private Parts Prize Packages. Her father owns a few of these ice cream stores down in Orlando Florida. This Friday she'll be at the William Sweets Ice Cream and Chocolate at the Church Street Station from 2 to 4pm. She'll be appearing at another one on Saturday. I missed the location though, sorry about that.
- Mary Schneider, Queen Of The Yodelers, Comes In. 11/13/97. 8:15am
I don't know exactly why but Howard has some fascination with women who yodel. He's been playing this woman's album ''Yodeling The Classics'' for the past week or so. I almost turned off my radio during the interview. I just couldn't take the noise. The woman brought her daughter in with her and the two of them yodeled together. My hand reached for the power button at that point but since I'm here to give daily highlights of the show I stuck with it. Howard had the woman yodel along to ''Highway To Hell'' and ''Stairway To Heaven''. Yikes! Howard heard that since he's been playing the album it's been selling like crazy. I guess someone out there likes it. If you'd like to learn more you can check out their web site at www.yodeling.com.
- Daniel Carver Movie Reviews. 11/13/97. 8:55am
KKK member Daniel Carver called in his 3 movie reviews today. This weeks movies were ''New Jack City'', ''White Man's Burden'' and ''Fridays''. This has become a regular thing for Daniel. Howard sends him a list of movies with black people in them so that he can review them. He gives a rating of 1 to 5, 5 being the best. This week's rating scale is based on ''flaming crosses''. Here's how he rated the movies:
- New Jack City - 0 Burning Crosses
- White Man's Burden - 3 Burning Crosses
- Fridays - 2 Burning Crosses

- Howard Offers To Appear On Late Show With David Letterman. 11/12/97. 6:25am
When Howard remembered that Marv Albert would be on ''Late Show'' with David Letterman tonight he told Gary to get Executive Producer Rob Burnett on the phone. Howard told Rob that he'd be willing to show up on the show tonight if he could sit in on the Marv interview. Rob said that he'd check into it but I don't think he'll be showing up. Howard just wants someone to do a real interview with the guy instead of a fluff piece like Barbara Walters and Larry King have done in the past week or so.
- Writers From ''Friends'' Thank Howard. 11/12/97. 7:10am
Three guys who write for the tv show ''Friends'' called in to thank Howard for admitting that he watches the show. Howard recently admitted to loving the show and actually taping it each week so he doesn't miss it. Today he actually admitted to liking the show from the start. In the past he hasn't admitted to liking the show. He said that he was embarrassed about liking the show so he wouldn't admit it. The writers were still at work out in California when they called in. They work long hours and said that they listen to Howard when they get off work at 3 in the morning.
- Howard Speaks Out About His Canadian Problems. 11/12/97. 7:35am
Howard spoke out about a 41 page report that came out last week up in Canada. The CBSC came out with a report basically saying that Howard is a racist, sexist, homophobic person. He talked about his feelings on the whole mess and feels that he deserves some kind of defense. If you'd like to read more about this story you may want to check out The Interactive King Of All Media Newsletter.
- Playboy ''Night Call'' Girls Come In. 11/12/97. 8:10am
The hosts of the Playboy Channel's ''Night Call'' came in to meet Howard. Julie Ashton and Doria (no last name) were in to plug their show I guess. Howard has seen their show but thinks that it's a little too tame for the Playboy Channel. They take phone calls from people and give advice on sex and stuff like that. Once in a while the viewers will ask Julie and Doria to do things to each other. They showed Howard their breasts and Howard let one of them feel his ass. Howard even stripped down to his underwear so they could do a whole spanking thing. Howard spanked Doria first then Julie spanked Howard a little bit. Howard said that he really wasn't that turned on by it. One of the two women will be hosting The Gossip Show on E! tonight at 7pm. Both of them have their own web sites also. http://www.risque.com/jhome.htm and www.doria.com. Just as the two women were getting ready to leave Howard found out that Julie, a porno star, is known for her anal sex scenes. They spent a few more minutes talking about that before leaving.
- Author Of ''Beat The Cops'' On The Phone. 11/12/97. 9:15am
Alex Carol, author of ''Beat The Cops. A Guide To Fighting Traffic Tickets and Winning'', called in. He gave Howard some tips on getting out of speeding tickets. He gave his tips and the next thing you know Dominic Barbara calls in to say that the guy is all wrong about what he said. Dominic is an attorney and he's seen people try to get out of speeding tickets with this guy's tips and they just don't work. After Dominic called a New Jersey cop called in agreeing with Dominic. He said that it just doesn't work. Then another cop called in and said that some of the tips will work. Who the hell knows what will work. If you want to check out the book you can order it through this 800 number: 1-800-3-CANWIN. People who order get a free list of speed traps in their state or Canadians can get the list of speed traps in their province.

- New Game ''Headphone Singing''. 11/11/97. 7:30am
Howard tried out a new game today. He had Stuttering John go out and pick some people off the street to play for a trip to San Francisco. What they had to do was sing along to a song while they wore a set of headphones to hear the song. The song they were singing to wasn't coming out over the air so their awful singing is all you could hear. They had like 3 contestants play. The first guy sang along to Madonna's ''Like A Virgin'', the second guy sang to U2's ''With Or Without You'' and the last guy sang along to ''Heard It Through The Grapevine''. They all sounded pretty bad but the winner, sounding the worst, was the second guy who sang ''With Or Without You''. Howard wasn't sure if the game worked or not so I don't know if they'll play it again.
- Interviews With Jay Leno, Bruce Jenner And Peter Fonda. 11/11/97. 8:40am
This guy Gary out at KLSX in California went out and interviewed a couple of celebs at a motorcyclist gathering out there. He interviewed Jay Leno first. He asked a couple of questions like ''would you share a bottle of water with an AIDS patient?'' and things like that. Jay asked who he was with and the guy asked him what he thought of Howard. Jay said something nice about him and vanished. Bruce Jenner was up next. He ask him about interracial relationships and why are there so many gays in Hollywood plus a couple of others. The last question was ''Have you ever farted in your hand and smelled it?''. Peter Fonda was last. He got off a couple of questions and then Fonda ran off. He asked things like ''After the L.A. riots, do blacks scare you?'' and ''Have you ever had the fat sucked out of your ass?''.
- Mark Harris And David Perform Their Awful Song. 11/11/97. 8:55am
Oh my god this was the most horrible thing I've ever heard. Mark Harris and his ex-boyfriend came in to perform the song that they were supposed to perform a few weeks ago. Last time they'd lost the piano music track that plays in the background as David plays his violin. Unfortunately they brought it in today. They performed the song and of course it was awful. I've still got the dry heaves. Howard took some phone calls for Mark while he was there and most of them were hate calls, actually I think they were all hate calls. I think that's why Howard likes him so much. The more the audience hates someone the more he likes them. The same goes for Gilbert Gottfried. They didn't really talk about anything new today. It was the same old crap about Martha Ray and how Mark and David met in Germany.
- Ozzy Osbourne Comes In. 11/11/97. 10:40am
I don't know if this was a planned appearance or if it was just because Ozzy was going to be guest hosting on Howard's station in New York. Ozzy came in with his 11 year old son Jack. He's out promoting his new album ''The Oz Man Cometh''. Ozzy's son was pretty cool for an 11 year old. He sounded pretty intelligent and he was pretty funny. He may have been more mature than his father. Ozzy has a new video out that Howard saw. Howard said that it's great and everyone should try to see it if they get the chance. Ozzy stuck around and did his DJ stint but it only lasted about an hour or so.

- Name The Real Doll. 11/10/97. 7:25am
Howard said that his mother called him the other day with a name for the Real Doll. She got the name from a friend of hers. The name that the person came up with was ''Selene Cohen''. The person who suggested the name was Jordan Meyerson. Robin seemed to think Jordan worked just as well. When they give it an official name I'll be sure to post it here.
- Jenny Jones Comes In. 11/10/97. 7:30am
Talk show host Jenny Jones came in to plug her new book ''My Story''. Howard heard that she used to be a drummer in a band so he had a bunch of instruments set up. Before they got really involved in the interview Howard and ''The Losers'' played ''Wipe Out'' and another song with Jenny. The rest of the interview was about how messed up Jenny's life has been. Her father used to embarrass her by telling her that her breasts were too small. He'd even tell her to do things like put ice on them to make them bigger. When she got older she got implants but they turned hard and really messed her up. She's had like 5 sets of implants and a couple of them have burst open inside her chest. She's had a hell of a life. We also found out that she's 51 years old! She and Jackie used to work together. She used to be a stand-up comedian. If you'd like to learn more about Jenny's life check out her book.
- Web Site Of The Day. 11/10/97. 9:00am
Months ago Howard heard a story of cannibals down in South America who were worshiping a picture of him. The story was in The Weekly World News. He said that he was browsing the web over the weekend and came across the picture on their web site so here's the address: wwnonline.com
