The Stern Show celebrated the 10th anniversary of its first Tradio phony phone call on Wednesday with both a brand new politically charged prank from staffers Richard Christy and Sal Governale and also a look back at some of their greatest hits.
“Sal and Richard are masters at making phony phone calls,” Howard explained. “We know that. They’ve been doing it their whole life and they’re great at it. One of their best sources of material is Tradio.”
Over the past decade the duo has in fact made over 100 prank calls to the program—which allows listeners buy, sell, swap, and trade items with one another—and hawked everything from poultry to dating apps. On Wednesday's show, Howard even played their very first Tradio call in which Sal pretended to sell human teeth.
Sal and Richard also recorded a new phony phone call in honor of the big milestone. “To celebrate the 10th anniversary of the first Tradio call, we have a brand new one,” Howard announced before playing the new clip which involves the staffers starting a political debate while trying to sell a signed copy of Donald Trump’s book “The Art of the Deal.”
