Private Parts

Synopsis: 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.

He was an engineer

at a radio station in Manhattan... WHOM.

Why do we live in Roosevelt

when you work in New York?

Shut up.

[Radio Static]

We never played catch

or went to ball games.

The only sport

my father liked was yelling.

Nothing but crap.

[Changes Station]

[Reggae Music Plays]

- Is this one crap?

- Don't be a moron.

# Shut up your mouth,

That is your daddy #

# Oh, no #

# My daddy

can't be ugly so #

# Shut your mouth,

go away #

# Ooh, Mama

look-a boo boo day #


# Shut your mouth... #

My father

commuted every day,

I guess it was, about 40 miles

into Manhattan.

He'd leave at 7:
00 in the morning,

get home around midnight or something.

I mean, I never saw the guy.

Come on. Come on.

Once a year, my old man

would break down

and take me

to work with him.

A little quality time.

I liked that.

A little bonding.

Dad and son together.

I looked forward to that.

[Elevator Dings]

Take my hand,


And remember, Howard,

I work here,

so keep your mouth shut.

# Never know

how much I love you... #

You spin and you spin

and you spin.


Who gives a damn?


I told you, shut up.

That man's

throwing records.

No, nobody gives

a goddamn about it.

None of it.

What the f*ck is it?

Just fucking records!

It's just this fucking place.

None of it means anything.

It's empty...

Sid, you're on

in 15 seconds.

Get a grip on yourself!

Ah, what the hell

do you know, you bastard?

You mieskait!

You're gonna play the music

for the people? It doesn't...

Symphony Sid!

By the powers vested in me

by the Federal

Communications Commission,

I command you

to get on the microphone

in a serious manner

and continue this broadcast.

Deep, Calm Voice: This is

Sunday Blues And Jazz,

and I'm your host
