April Fools! Ralph is a Joke

A couple hours into the show, Howard came forward with a confession; Ralph's ISDN home connection (and new "permanent fixture" status on the show) was an April Fool's joke, which even he couldn't take it anymore. Ralph was actually in the green room with a remote mic, and his constant laughing and breathing was driving Howard crazy; "I had to turn off his mic during the Roker interview." Howard then took several calls from listeners who had just stepped off the ledge and thanked Ralph for the great (but ultimately annoying) idea/prank.
