6. This incident was also written about in the book Howard Stern A to Z by Luigi Lucaire.
7. After leaving the internship, Race took the first of many on-air radio jobs as a disc jockey, beginning at WRCN on Long Island, and later at WBAB on Long Island, amongst others.
8. This began in Philadelphia, and after several years of doing stand-up comedy all over the east coast, resulted in a move to Los Angeles.
