Howard opened this show this morning without his co-host Robin Quivers. Her ISDN line had blown and they had to rush to get another one to her. In the meantime, she called in via phone and, of course, handled it like the pro she is.
If there was an upside, it was that Howard finally put his finger on what is so annoying about Scott the Engineer: when he comes in to tell you bad news, his lips don't move. The words just kind of eke out of his mouth.
When Robin finally did get back on mic, there was a loud, annoying hum that sounded like she was chiming in from a beehive.
agt dinner party fiasco
While Howard is the greatest radio host of all time, he has more difficulty hosting dinner parties. Howard and Beth had Howard's America's Got Talent co-workers over for dinner last night – or, really they had Howie Mandel over for dinner and everybody else came about an hour late.
Howard expects people to show up on time, in this case six pm, but Heidi Klum and Mel B. were tied up getting ready and they didn't make it to Howard's apartment til about seven-fifteen.
AGT host Nick Cannon said he'd "try to be there" but never showed up at all, so his place-setting sat unused.
Howard questoined why Nick would say that. Either you are going to show up or you aren't. This is why Howard doesn't throw many dinner parties.
howard's hot for music
Howard had three big musical revelations over the weekend: The first was that Kashmir is the sexiest song in history (which Robin agreed with – in fact, she first heard the Led Zeppelin classic while she in the middle of intercourse).
The second revelation was the Van Halen's Hot For Teacher was a game-changer in Rock 'n Roll. He loves the fast-pace and how "all over the place" the song is. He's especially impressed with David Lee Roth's casual singing style over such a fast paced rhythm.
The third revelation is that Aerosmith's Joe Perry is the 'coolest guy in rock and roll'. He recently saw him in Aerosmith's new DVD 'Rock For the Rising Sun'. Fred agreed with Howard, saying Joe Perry is a top 10, all time guitarist.
robin claims she saw a movie
Robin saw the movie "Lovelace" starring Amanda Seyfried, but couldn't remember if she got nude or not. We checked and she does.
