wait... so its NOT about Howard Stern?
1. Speaks from a place of anger (early Stern)
2. Constantly at odds with his producer behind the scenes
3. Constantly adderssing being at odds with management while on air
4. Making fun of himself that he is ugly
5. Making a note that he has a small penis
6. Big hair in early days... cuts it down later on
7. Outshines his co-host in his early days, and finally takes over.
8. Constant mentions of FCC fines
9. Marital problems and eventual divorce once hitting it big
10. Transitions to a national audience
11. Brings joe schmoe callers onto the air with him
Strangely, some of these things didn't come to pass with Stern until AFTER the movie came out... so maybe these are just stereotypes in the talk radio industry, or maybe Stern saw the movie and actually tried to emulate it.
