CRANK CALLS CIRCA 1982 Six months before Howard Stern became a superstar on WNBC/New York and a full 12 years before The Jerky Boys released their first album, Tom Leykis and his pal Howard Hoffman made and recorded hundreds of prank phone calls to unsuspecting radio hosts in Phoenix, Arizona. This collection has never been aired on radio or on Tom's live stream (although it has been played at dozens of parties). Many of these Phoenix call-in shows had no 7-second delays, though some actually did. These calls are often funnier than any radio show though, as you'll hear, Tom could never, ever play them on the radio. This tape was just unearthed at Tom's home in the Hollywood Hills.
