FEBRUARY 9, 2006: HOWARD CALLS BEIRUT

On this date in 2006, Howard (in character as Fartman) placed a call to Beirut to see if his superhero alter ego could make peace in the Middle East. Imagine his surprise when the guy on the other end of the phone asked, "Is this Howard Stern?" Yes, even though Howard has never officially been broadcast in Lebanon, he managed to find a fan halfway around the globe. The man explained that his friends in America had sent him tapes of the show and that he loved listening to Howard and Robin.
