FEBRUARY 12, 1996: DAVID SPADE'S STERN SHOW DEBUT

On this date in 1996, "Saturday Night Live" star David Spade set foot in the Stern Show studio for the first time ever. Spade talked about scoring chicks, his relationship with Eddie Murphy, and why Howard had never hosted "SNL." Spade would go on to make many more Stern Show appearances and was chosen in 2006 to write an article about Howard in Time Magazine's 100 Most Influential People issue.
  • As a friend, [Howard’s] always there to support you whether you’re on top of the world or the world is on top of you.

    John Stamos
  • Can I just say, I’m a little tired, Howard, of people telling me you’re the greatest interviewer on the planet. It’s getting a little aggravating Howard.

    Katie Couric
  • Howard, to me, is the guy who said, ‘be yourself and let the chips fall where they may,’ and that made me feel good. So I owe you a lot, Howard.

    Louis C.K.
  • Howard, you are absolutely phenomenal. You’re on my radio every morning.

    Bryan Cranston
  • I have to thank you. A lot of people know my story from your show. You guys gave me an opportunity to actually talk about my life.
