Howard introduced today's SuperFan Trivia contestants, starting with Barbara Younger, a 20-year listener, who told the crew that Fred was her favorite: "I love anytime Fred's on the radio."
Steve Rice, the second contestant, said he'd been listening since 1986, and had even been on the show--where he met Ralph: "He saw Captain Janks and all of his attention went to Captain Janks and I guess we got some shrapnel. He was an absolute and complete dick."
The third contestant, Liz Belmont had been listening since 1984: "Just about every day...and my best friend is Ass Napkin Ed." Liz explained: "I kind of found Ed on the street...he just, like, becomes one with my couch and, you know, except for the cat jumping over him or whatever, he does absolutely nothing."
Howard told the contestant's they'd be competing as a team for $2,500--each--against a team of staffers consisting of Gary, Fred and Brian Phelan.
