Howard began the show mentioning that he was disappointed he didn't get to listen to "Tissue Time with Heidi Cortez" last night. Howard explained he wasn't able to tune in to the program because its start time got switched to 10 o'clock to better reflect a time most people actually go to bed.
Howard went on to note that there was some confusion about Double A's appearance on last night's show, which ended up causing some problems. Howard said that after rethinking his invitation to Double A to appear with Heidi, he decided he didn't want him to be a guest with her after all. Howard instructed Jason Kaplan to call Tim Sabean, the Howard 100 program director, to let him know about the change in plans. However, Jason forgot to get in touch with Tim about the switch, so he didn't know about it. Gary came into the studio and told Howard that he didn't think Jason's slip up was a big deal, because he spoke to Tim yesterday afternoon, and told him that Double A wasn't going to be on anymore.
Gary added that when he made Tim aware of this, he thought the problem was solved. However, Gary commented that somehow Tim didn't pick up on the fact that Double A's appearance on "Tissue Time" was canceled, because Double A showed up at the SIRIUS studio when he was originally scheduled to be there. Double A got on the line and claimed that Tim never got in touch with him yesterday afternoon the way Gary thought he would. Jason then got on a mic and apologized to Double A, which, he pointed out, he had done yesterday as well.
Despite his effort, Double A responded that he gave up half his day to appear on "Tissue Time," so he didn't appreciate not being told he wasn't on.
Howard insisted that SIRIUS needed to hire more staff needs to keep situations from happening again in the future.
The Final Farewell
Howard commented that Ralph wasn't able to listen to "Tissue Time" last night either because he was busy getting Howard's wardrobe together for his upcoming television appearances. Howard mentioned that he'll be on "Late Show with David Letterman" tomorrow, and that he has a full-schedule of press lined up for Friday as well.
Howard went on to announce that Tom Chiusano has decided to have a party for everyone on December 16, the day of their final live broadcast, but that it might be tough for him to make it because of all the commitments he has already booked. Tom explained to Howard that he figured the day of the last show was the most appropriate day to have the party, and that people from the past 20 years have been invited to attend.
Upon hearing this, Howard told Tom that the party sounded like fun, and assured him that he'd clear his schedule to be there. However, when Howard found out that Tom planned KROCK's Christmas party for Thursday, December 8, he did inform him that he definitely won't be able to make it due to prior plans.
