YOU'VE GOTTA LISTEN TO IMUS. IMUS DOES IT PERFECTLY:  From our Minor Moments in Pop Culture History Desk (translation: I've got nothing right now), yesterday marked the 30-year anniversary of Howard Stern's debut on WNBC radio in New York City, which then occupied 660 on your AM dial. (You know how that story ends.) The linked FishbowlNY story is a nice detailed history of Stern's early days in NYC, and does contain my favorite Paul Giamatti scene from Private Parts—or you can hear how Imus actually said it at the end of this 1983 tv ad featuring him and Stern.
