Howard’s on 24/7 on Sirius. And they replay the best segments on Friday. But if you miss it, you miss it forever. That’s radio. And sitting in traffic listening to Howard interview Billy was pure heaven, I didn’t want to get out.
You know how these interviews usually go. You’ve got a sycophantic celebrity or a good-looking talking head who wants to be a celebrity serving up softballs to a legend who doesn’t want to be there, who doesn’t reveal anything truly private, truly inside.
But this was like going over to Billy’s house and sitting in the living room, asking him the questions that had rolled around in your head for years, not for ratings, but because you truly wanted to know the answers.
I was glued to my radio listening to this. Between Jay-Z and this, Stern is (possibly) leaving satellite radio riding a wave of some pretty incredible interviews. You can listen to the Billy Joel interview using the links at the end of the Lefsetz review.
Rumor is that Stern will start his own web based radio station when his Sirius/XM contract ends in a matter of days.
