The Adventures of a Flying Gag Writer
Classic Notes from the terrestrial Howard Stern Show, 1986-2001
Sportscasting legend Al Michaels is a huge Howard Stern fan & often sat in on the show in the early 90's, before his good pal O.J. went a-carving. At the time, Al sat next to Frank Gifford on Monday Night Football.
The incredibly talented Billy West would do Al's voice dead-on. We'd give him horrible things to say, & it was impossible to determine when it was Billy or the real Al Michaels talking.
I wrote, "Gif, I got some on the seat."
And Al wrote, "Jackie, thanks for ending my career. You're the best. Al Michaels."
