    todays the king of all medias birthday, hes 24 

    vP2t6K4Conly howard stern has gotten away with charging people to pay for radio

    and then only working three days a week.

    if that doesnt make him your hero how about this:

    he says exactly whats on his mind

    he’s filthy rich

    his wife is beautiful, wonderful, and has a heart of gold.

    he interviews people better than anyone.

    sadly the demons in his life appear to be overwhelming:

    he doesn’t seem to truly enjoy his success

    he doesnt seem to like himself

    he doesnt get the respect that lesser broadcasters get

    his longtime sidekick robin seems extremely ill.

    so what are the lessons we can learn from howard?

    – be careful what you ask for

    – appreciate yourself

    – your best asset is your uniqueness, own it

    ive been listening to howard for maybe 20 years now,

    every day.

    hes a bigger influence on my life than you probably know.

    so what’s my favorite interview he’s given? probably the one he did in 1996 with JFK Jr.
