This kinda friend

Robin quivers and Howard Stern

"They put me on the phone with Robin,..and we started to be somewhat conversant. I mean, right off the bat we were just kind of like asking each other questions... (chokes back tears) We made a connection. 

It was instantaneous. I said: ‘I can do anything. With this woman, I know it’ll work.’...Within five minutes I knew this was the woman I wanted to spend my career with. I was in love with her from the first conversation....It was an instant click. And we had years when things were rough, and when I say rough, in terms of radio it doesn’t get any rougher…

The entire time Robin and I were going through this mill, no matter how bad things got, I knew Robin had my back…She was offered money to go work with other people. 

If somebody attacked me or a boss got me down, I’d go to Robin and I’d say ‘I can’t do this anymore. I can’t take it’. She would say ‘of course we can do it’. When Jackie would threaten me every week with leaving the show and R knewI was so disturbed about it, she’d say: ‘We don’t need anyone else…’…She was my backbone. Y’understand? Where I would lose courage, Robin always has the courage. 

She always is the brave one—always the brave one with me. I could go to her and—(starts to break down) you know, I could always rely on her...To have a friend like that, I wish it for anybody who is in business—when you have somebody like that you can rely on.”
