Heyyyy Nowwww…..What a amazing two days I had on Jan 30th and Jan 31st. The best two days of my life, started with The Superfan Roundtable hosted by Mutt on Jan 30th , this was a special edition of the Roundtable that featured some of the winners of tickets to The Howard Stern Birthday Bash. It was so much fun to talk about the bash and wonder what the next day would bring for us . Jesse From San Diego and Me got to see Spike Lee in the lobby of Sirius along with Charles Oakley , they had just come from a Sirius interview. It was totally awesome.
The next day, the 31st I was like a kid on Christmas morning and couldn’t wait for The Birthday Bash, I went for a shave and a haircut at my local barber , and then headed down to the Hammerstein ballroom for the biggest event of the year and my life. Got to see the regular wackpackers Fred The Elephant Boy and High Pitch Erik and the awesome superfans were already there. We all lined up and we got into the venue around 5:30 pm , and the show started at 6pm. My heart was pounding , It’s showtime!!!
The show started out with Rob Zombie performing “American Nightmare” and to see this performed live and at The Birthday Bash was another dream come true. The floor was were the vips were and from Barbara Walters to Robert Downey Jr. to Steven Tyler everybody was here for one thing, to salute The King Of All Media.
The Birthday show changed for me when Dave Grohl came out and performed “Everlong” as I was listening to the lyrics , i was thinking of the past thirty plus years of listening and loving The Howard Stern show , and one particular lyric got to me “Can Anything Be This Good Again” I don’t think I will ever be able to enjoy anything as much as I enjoyed that night saluting The King Of All Media Howard Stern , and happy that we were able to celebrate it with Robin.
To be a superfan for over thirty plus years , I feel lucky to have a awesome show to listen Mon to Wed and the amazingly awesome friendships I have made over the years with people I know will be friends for life.
After the show I was emotionally spent, I felt like I was on a amazing four hour journey of my life and the show, and to be given the tickets on the air by Howard, was a dream come true. I was truly proud to be a superfan that night . Can anything be this good again???
