Once known as Steve the Intern, Brandano has since earned his title of Producer and is considered by many to be the Stern Show's, "utility player." Steve mans the phones during the mornings, and has produced many shows, segments and guest appearances on the Howard channels. His accent will give him away as a Boston-bred kid, growing up in Melrose, MA. Steve is passionate about music and his musical opinions. He's also well know for pleading with Howard to have The Black Keys on the show, a wish that finally came true when they played at Howard's 60th Birthday Bash.
