Two Great Tastes that Taste Great Together

I've been a big fan of Howard Stern since mid 1993, when I lived in Los Angeles, but I was undecided about whether or not I wanted to invest the money in the hardware and the subscription required to hear him on Sirius.

When I heard, though, that he had George Takei on as a guest announcer for the first week, a strange feeling came over me that all was right with the world. If you've listened to Howard's show at all then you know that George Takei has been a target of the Stern show's brand of merciless mirth-making for several years. The fact that George had the considerable cajones to actually sit in as a guest for a full week made a real impression on me, and I felt compelled to plunk down the money and hear it for myself.

I haven't been disappointed at all. Though George's week is long over, the show has been consistently almost unbelievably good.

Here is George Takei's version of things, if you're curious.

Glad to know another Stern fan. I haven't made the leap to Sirius yet and I know I'm missing out on all the good stuff! Do you know anything about the In Demand stuff he's working on? Where do you find it?

That George Takei stuff they did was hilarious. The Zulu Dance, the phoney phone calls and off course "Young wet bitches". :)

Since I don't have a television I'm not really up on the inDemand stuff, but I think it depends on the cable company you have.

Apparently some cable providers don't have it, I guess.

Just for the record, it's Sulu dance, not "Zulu". It refer's to Takai's character on Star Trek, Mr. Sulu.

This is to help those of you who found this page via a search using "zulu" instead of "sulu".
