So as you may or may not know, Grooming Lounge was recently featured on the Howard Stern Show.  As a huge fan, it was an honor to be able to be in studio with Howard — not to mention — great to try and spread the word about our company and all we have to offer.

Just how did we get on the Stern show you might ask?  Well, let me bullet point it out for you and do the same for our experience on the air.

HOW WE GOT ON THE STERN SHOW

  • WE SURVEYED OUR GROOMING EXPERTS TO SEE WHO THEY THOUGHT HAD THE BEST HAIR IN AMERICA.
  • THEY VOTED HOWARD #1 BASED ON A BUNCH OF CRITERIA.  HE BEAT OUT SOME MAJOR HEAVYWEIGHTS INCLUDING JARED LETO, GEORGE CLOONEY AND MORE.
  • WE CALLED HOWARD’S PRODUCERS AND TOLD THEM THAT HOWARD HAD WON THE AWARD AND WE WANTED TO DELIVER HIS TROPHY TO HIM.
  • THEY SAID  — “EVEN BETTER… WHY NOT COME IN STUDIO AND PRESENT IT TO HIM?”
  • WE SAID, “YOU NAME THE TIME AND PLACE AND WE’LL BE THERE.”
  • WE WENT THERE LAST WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 1ST.

WHAT HAPPENED AT THE SHOW

  • WE WERE GREETED BY HOWARD’S HEAD OF SECURITY, RONNIE, WHO COULDN’T HAVE BEEN ANY NICER.
  • WHEN I SAY WE, I MEAN ME AND OUR PUBLIC RELATIONS REP, HEATHER.
  • WE WERE ESCORTED TO A GREEN ROOM AND AFTER SITTING DOWN, SPENT SOME TIME TALKING TO HOWARD’S PRODUCER GARY, PRODUCER JASON AND STEVE, WHO OFFICIALLY BOOKED US ON THE SHOW.
  • HOWARD WAS TALKING ABOUT DONALD TRUMP AND HIS THOUGHTS ON HIM REALLY WANTING OR NOT WANTING TO BE PRESIDENT, SO WE WAITED IN THE GREEN ROOM.  WE WERE SUPPOSED TO GO ON AT 7:30, BUT WENT IN MORE LIKE 8 AM.
  • I WAS ESCORTED INTO THE STUDIO, TROPHY IN HAND AND WAS GREETED BY HOWARD AND ROBIN.  ALTHOUGH I’VE BEEN THERE THE PAST TWO YEARS, ROBIN STILL HAD ZERO CLUE WHO I WAS.
  • I PRESENTED HOWARD WITH THE AWARD, WHICH HE SEEMINGLY ENJOYED AND WAS VERY PROUD OF.
  • HE ASKED ME “IF I WAS A CRACKPOT?” AND I EXPLAINED THAT “NO, WE RUN A REAL BUSINESS WITH STORES, AN ONLINE PRESENCE AND OUR OWN PRODUCTS.”
  • HOWARD MADE AN ACCEPTANCE SPEECH IN WHICH HE THANKED HIS GRANDPARENTS, WIFE, ROBIN AND ME.
  • WORD GOT TO HOWARD THAT HEATHER WAS AN ATTRACTIVE FEMALE AND THE STAFF TWISTED HER ARM TO COME IN STUDIO.
  • SHE DID AND WAS ASKED SOME BORDERLINE UNCOMFORTABLE QUESTIONS, WHICH SHE DID WITH CLASS.
  • A FEW TIMES, I HAD TO REMIND HOWARD THAT WE WERE THERE TO TALK ABOUT HIS AWARD AND NOT HEATHER’S BATHING SUIT PREFERENCES.  HE WAS A GREAT SPORT FOR NOT KICKING ME OUT.
  • HE THANKED US, THANKED GROOMINGLOUNGE.COM FOR THE AWARD AND THEN KICKED US OUT.
