Longtime listener, first time commenter: Great interview!
Avatar 12:12pm Roberto:

Looking back on my dubious early '90s listening preferences, Mark and Howard were by far the best thing on mainstream New York City radio at that time.

Phenomenal interview. It's amazing to think Howard was inspired by seeing Louis Prima/Keely Smith in Vegas the way most 60s musicians were by the Beatles on Sullivan. Thanks, Michael!
