  • -Guys, welcome back to "Goatee Talk."

  • -Yeah. -I'm here with Ryan Seacrest.

  • -I looked in the mirror and said, "Finally."

  • -Yeah. -Finally.

  • -You found your look.

  • -Finally I can grow it out, you know.

  • -You found your move. -Yep.

  • -Thank you. That's a little Wolfman Jack-y.

  • -It is a little Wolfman Jack-y.

  • -Dude, I've got to congratulate you on two things.

  • [ Laughter ]

  • -I'm just chafed. [ Laughter ]

  • -Wax, there you go. Perfect.

  • Two things I want to congratulate you on.

  • -Yes, sir. -First of all, the Emmy win.

  • -Thank you, that's so great. -You won an Emmy

  • for hosting "Live with Kelly and Ryan."

  • [ Cheering ] -Very exciting, thank you, yes.

  • -You do a great job over there. -She carries it.

  • She carries it, she's the best, and we are very happy.

  • We are very excited about it man, yeah.

  • -You guys are such a great team. Oh, that's awesome, dude.

  • That's the best. -She's great. Yeah, yeah.

  • -And then you also -- this is a really big deal.

  • You're inducted into the Radio Hall of Fame.

  • That is an amazing thing. -That's --

  • [ Cheering ] -Thank you.

  • -I really -- I know -- I feel like that means a lot to you.

  • -It does mean a lot. I started in radio

  • when I was a high school teenager.

  • And, to get inducted, the thing is the fans have --

  • the listeners had to vote, and I really wanted to win it,

  • you know? -Of course.

  • -So, we were on the air talking about getting votes,

  • and we said, "Look, we know you're all busy.

  • So, if you send us your email address, we'll forward

  • the emails to the Hall of Fame,

  • and we'll also send you a personalized thank-you.

  • I will shoot those after the radio show."

  • -So you're voting for them. They don't have to do any work.

  • -Yeah, they have no work. And it worked.

  • It paid off. And then I realized a great thing.

  • It was sort of meant to be because I've met a lot of people

  • like you, but I had never met somebody else that's being

  • inducted that night, and that's Dr. Ruth.

  • And so, finally I'll get a chance

  • to ask her some questions. [ Light laughter ]

  • -I mean, you're going to ask Dr. Ruth questions

  • about... -Well, why not?

  • [ Laughter ] -I mean, I guess, why not?

  • I mean, you're there. -Yeah.

  • -When is this? -You have questions of your own?

  • -Yeah. [ Laughter ]

  • What is it? -Yeah.

  • -When will it happen for me? That's what I want to ask her.

  • -But it's -- I'm excited about that.

  • -Oh, that's -- here's a picture of you

  • when you were 15 right there.

  • -Yeah, that's Star 94 Atlanta, WSTR.

  • -Look at that. -94.1, today's best music.

  • Playing all the hits. -Today's best music.

  • -Today's best music.

  • Home of Steve McCoy in the morning.

  • -Ah. Were you -- were you on the air at this point, or no?

  • -This -- uh, yeah, I was doing the weekend shift at this point.

  • And this was the company jacket that they -- you know,

  • after you do a couple of hours they give you that.

  • -Oh, that's a big deal. -That's a -- yeah.

  • -You don't want to take that sucker off.

  • -I used to ask to drive the van home and park it in my driveway

  • over the weekends 'cause it looked cool with the logo.

  • You know, the kids in the neighborhood would drive by --

  • -That's the greatest. I love that.

  • And those are the cartridges that you would plug in --

  • -Yeah, those are the carts.

  • You pull those out -- those are the songs and the commercials.

  • You have to pull those out and stack them up

  • and then put them into the machine.

  • -Do you miss that part of the thing? 'Cause I --

  • -No, that was a lot of labor, a lot of work.

  • -It was?

  • -And now you drag a mouse and hit play.

  • -Did you have records when you did that? No records?

  • -No, no records, but we did have reel-to-reel tape

  • that I'd have to splice.

  • So, there would be -- if you had a phone call

  • and you wanted to record a phone call, you'd tape it

  • on a reel-to-reel, and then if you wanted to edit it,

  • you'd have to splice it, and tape it together,

  • and then play it back. -Wow, no way.

  • -Yeah. -So you learned how to do

  • all that stuff? -That's how old I am.

  • -No, no, it's not -- No, it's not --

  • No, that's the fun of radio. -Yeah. It's hands on.

  • -You never know all the stuff that goes into it.

  • I mean, I have friends that worked in radio for years,

  • and they said the one thing that haunts them --

  • they still have nightmares about it -- is dead air.

  • -Dead air.

  • -I just -- wow, that's weird.

  • I know, it's like, I feel like I'm a mentalist.

  • -[ Shushing ] -Yeah.

  • -I can't stop -- -Can't shush --

  • No, even -- like, if a song -- if I'm in the car and a song

  • starts to fade, and it's almost out, I start to panic

  • and call into the radio station saying, "It's almost over."

  • -What's the next record? What's the next song?

  • -Get the cart. What's next? Yeah.

  • -Yeah, and what would you do?

  • Like, say a song had ended

  • and you didn't have the next song?

  • -I would turn on the mic, and I would take calls or something,

  • and vamp until I could get the next song on.

  • -And so, you'd just talk to them, and just --

  • -Try to -- "Hi, how are you.

  • Where are you calling from? That's great.

  • What are you up to this weekend? What are you doing this morning?

  • And here's Michael Bolton." [ Laughter ]

  • -"And here's Michael Bolton." -Like that, yeah.

  • That was big. That was hot back in the day.

  • -Another congratulations is I heard that you --

  • you busted one of the Kardashians' toilets.

  • [ Laughter ] -Well, it was unintentional.

  • I took the drive to Calabasas. I was invited to --

  • This is embarrassing, but I was invited to a big party of theirs

  • with all of the family, all the sisters were there.

  • -Yeah, what -- -And I had had a lot to eat

  • that day, and I had to go to the bathroom when I got in,

  • and there's this robot.

  • Have you seen -- the robot, you know, toilets

  • with all the buttons. -Oh.

  • -They have all kinds of -- -I'm jealous I don't have one,

  • but I've seen them. -Well, they have one

  • and there's all kinds of options.

  • -The lid comes up before you get in.

  • -Lid comes up -- -"Welcome."

  • Yeah, like -- [ Laughter ]

  • -And you're sitting there and as you're -- you -- I was seated,

  • and as I was seated I was looking at the menu of options.

  • The things you -- the things you can do when you're finished.

  • And so -- [ Laughter ]

  • -And so I -- I chose one. -Yeah.

  • -And I pressed it, and the water level began to rise

  • underneath me. [ Laughter ]

  • And I thought, "Oh, God, I better hit the other button."

  • So, and it began to rise even more.

  • And now I'm faced with one of life's great challenges

  • and choices, what do I do?

  • Do I call Kim, Khloe, or Kris, and say, "Help"?

  • Or do I press the other -- the third button?

  • [ Laughter ]

  • And risk it overflowing or closing?

  • I hit the button, and the lid closed perfectly,

  • and I got out, went back to the party,

  • and I never told them about that.

  • [ Laughter ] So if they're watching --

  • -So you let someone else walk in?

  • -Someone -- one of the other sisters had to deal with that.

  • [ Laughter ]

  • -They're finding out right now.

-Guys, welcome back to "Goatee Talk."
