...MB '05 Tour: Day 120: Howard Stern Show + travel day, NYC to LA
Today was a very rough day schedule wise but a fantastic day otherwise. The band woke up at 4:30 AM and headed over to the midtown Manhattan studios of 92.3 Krock for just about the earliest soundcheck of the band's career. Major kudos to the weez crew for getting an even EARLIER start to get the gear set up and running before the band even arrived! After soundcheck, the band returned to the hotel for an hour, then went back to Krock again for the live broadcast.
At Howard Stern the guest band shares the room with Howard and his crew, so the guys did all their interview stuff seated with their instruments, then broke into the songs when Howard suggested it. It was really fun to listen to it all go down. As Howard's many listeners now know, it was an exceptionally cool interview! Huge ups to Howard and co. for making it an awesome day, easily one of the very best days of the year so far for the band.
