Storyline

Having always wanted to be a disc-jockey, Howard Stern works his way painfully from radio at his 1970's college to a Detroit station. It is with a move to Washington that he hits on an outrageous off-the-wall style that catches audience attention. Despite his on-air blue talk, at home he is a loving husband. He needs all the support he can get when he joins NBC in New York and comes up against a very different vision of radio. Written by Jeremy Perkins <jwp@aber.ac.uk>

Quotes

Jackie: My answer is "cock", and I wrote it really big, so I have a "big cock!"
Howard: I'm afraid you can't say "big cock" on the air. That's a no-no.
Robin Quivers: But I just said "pussy".
Jackie: [whining] Yeah, she just said *pussy*!
Howard: Well, pussy's okay. It's the way you say it. "Big cock" coming out of your mouth is, just not good.
Jackie: Wait a minute. I can't say "big cock", but you can say "big cock coming out of your mouth?"
Howard: That's right.
Jackie: That sucks!

a look at the life of nasty Howard
7 May 1999 | by helpless_dancerSee all my reviews

This film documents the life and times of radio talk host Howard Stern. While his younger years are displayed in a hit and miss fashion, the years concerning his radio heyday are nicely done. He started out as a local d.j., merely spinning records and doing weather. Becoming bored with this format, he chooses to do a more spontaneous show which causes trouble with his employers. When he reaches the top of the pile at NBC, his antics become even more outrageous which catapults him to enormous fame. Vulgar, but very funny. Go on and watch it.
