I don't think this interview was so much Howard's fault as it was McNamee's. Howard was asking him questions, but all he really got was yes or no answers. Not a good radio guest. It was like pulling teeth trying to get information out of him.
Ya I'd hardly call it Howard's fault. it was like pulling teeth getting anything interesting from him or something longer than a one sentence answer.
Also, Norm was great right after. I've been a huge fan of his since SNL. Or so the Germans would have us believe.
