8 posts in this topic

So, since Howard is off for the next couople weeks, they have a special program running, "the History of Howard Stern". Today (tuesday 12/18) is heavy on the Hartford years, having a nice mention of the Berlin Turnpike and Manchester specifically.

How long was Howard's stint at Hartford radio station WCCC?

I've been listening all morning- good programming.

He talked about how the manager gave him 69 bucks a week to find a hotel, he stayed in some crack hotel on the berlin turnpike, someone got shot the first nite he was there.

Fred Norris grew up on Brainerd Place, a road off of main street manchester. His home no longer exists there. He says it was a great little town then, but now its gone way downhill- just mall after mall after mall.

Howard used to do all request hours at WCCC.

You have to take that in context, his situation was horrible, not the city. In the past, he's said he loved Hartford and would have liked to stay and move to a nicer town like West Hartford (he lived in Bloomfield). Despite a few of the quotes on today, he has always said he liked the city.

I wouldn't call either a "nice" mention...Howard says Hartford was a nothing station, he needed to break out, it was a small terrible market...

According to Fred it was about 35th, but I think he's off, it was probably mid 20's back then. Howard wanted out of Detroit, and that's the 8th market, the point being, anything short of NYC was falling short of his goal.
