It’s been nearly two years since we last heard from him, but Artie Lange is back. Now clean and sober, Artie is making his return to radio with the Nick and Artie Show, a 3-hour weeknight sports talk radio show with fellow comedian Nick DiPaolo. The show started in early October and I listened to the first couple episodes and I’ll admit, the guys seemed a little rusty. Now that they have a few weeks under their belts, its gotten much better. I wouldn’t recommend it if you’re not a sports fan but its a good listen for those who are. The show is still building their terrestrial radio base so you may not be able to find it on the AM or FM dial but you can stream from their website, download podcasts from iTunes or tune-in with the I Heart Radio smartphone app.
As a long time Howard Stern Show listener, its just good to hear Artie again. The guy can tell a great story and he seems to be beating the various addictions he’s battled over the years. No more drinking, drugs or gambling but that won’t stop him from sharing a story from his glory days.
