LISTENER COMMENT FROM LINDA
My name is Linda, and I currently live up in Rochester,VT. I really miss the Paul and Al show, and here are two of my favorite's with the guys.
Firstly, I recall the show giving away tickets to the Wallflowers! It was approximately 7:00 to 7:30 am, I called in and I won the tickets! I was stunned! I had hopped out of the shower, totally nude, called the show... I won, then a knock at my door. It was my sister in law! I was all excited talking to paul and al, then I told them, "I'm completely nude, jumped outa the shower for these tickets!" They said, "Linda you are nude, and someone is at your door knocking?" I said yep, they said, let them in, we gotta ask who it is if you are nude.. I asked who it was, it was my sister in law so I let her in. They asked, put her on the phone, her name is Wanda. They then began to question Wanda on my body... "Is she hot?" Wanda says yea she is! Is she really nude Wanda?.. yea she sure is! it was like YOWZA! lots of fun on that day! Thanks Paul and Al for the great memories, and all the fun on your show while I tuned in.
Secondly, I was at work one day, and skipped into the back room of a dental lab I worked at in N Providence. It was time for the 4:20 Club! I went in the back room, they picked up, "hello, this is "high beams" I said.... at the same time, a coworker, came into the room I was in, and he was on his cell phone, and he says, "PantyMan"... I looked at him, and said, hey are you doing the 420 club? yep he says! omg... of course it was a riot, and we have, "high beams and the panty man" hehe, I was shocked to hear my friend call himself the pantyman, as he was too to hear me say Highbeams! lol after that, they always paired the panty man and highbeams up together for the 420 club! What a riot!!!
Miss the show, however tune in on the internet!
Happy 20th Paul and Al and thanks for the great memories.
I'm gonna hit the like button on FB, I mentioned it to a few friends, and they couldn't believe it!
Yep, "still crazy after all these years"

LISTENER COMMENT FROM KEN
Happy 20th you guys. I've been listening to you almost every morning since you started. I'm originally from NH, got stationed in Newport in '89. Hopefully you stay around for another twenty. You guys are hilarious.
LISTENER COMMENT FROM LISAMARIE
Wow, as I say Aloha to the mainland to move to Hawaii, I will really miss listening to Paul and Al. They put a smile on my face every morning for 20 years, and they also totally disgusted me on a regular basis with blowing chow…oh, the memories!!! At least I can hear the bits on the internet, because they will be on air while we sleep peacefully in Hawaii.
I have loved the bits, songs and segments, each and everyone. Thanks to two completely insane guys!
LISTENER COMMENT FROM CHRIS
Sorry I'm a little late but congrats to Paul and Al and their 20 years. I'm a huge fan of HJY and keep it up. You guys are great.
LISTENER COMMENT FROM FRED
Times change, people come & people go...it's great to see uhhhhhhh Al & Paul, I mean uhhhhhhhh Paul & Al still gainfully employed at what they obviously love doing.
We're so blessed around this area (others too I guess now, with the internet stuff) to have a great morning show to listen to. Stuff has been so funny over the years - I've seen people drop tools, fall down stumbling or loose their breath, from laughing so hard.
Pell hanging his Christmas lights is typical of their classic humor, at it's best. The first time I heard it, I spit ice-tea through my nose...you don't forget things like that.
Anyway, HAPPY Aniversary to Paul & Al! May they have many more years together - entertaining the shyt out of dedicated listeners...and, most importantly - LET THOSE LISTENERS BE US!
LISTENER COMMENT FROM TIM AND AMY
Remembering 9-24-93: This is a very special date shared between my wife, Amy and I, and Paul and Al. This was the date that Paul and Al invaded our home for the first ever (and probably only) Paul and Al Home Invasion. Amy and I were young Newlyweds and Paul and Al nearly destroyed it all. We spent years in marital therapy just trying to get over the morning they spent at our Attleboro Townhouse apartment. We also never got our first month's rent deposit back, due to the destruction they caused while on air.
They went through our personal belongs, including our fridge and medicine cabinets. They made fun of my Pat Benatar album collection (but were nice enough to replace it with CD's). They read my High School Year Book online. They made Amy and I play awful on air games in order to win a boom box. So humilating. We even had to change our phone number, as they kept telling the listeners our name and address!!! Then, when things couldn't get any worse, they decided to interview my MOM on air!!!
Well, the good news is that Amy and I (like Paul and Al) are still together. We have a couple kids and have been married 17 years. Knowing that we could survive the Paul and Al Home Invasion so early in our marriage showed us that we could survive anything else that life would throw at us. Please tell Paul and Al we said Happy Anniversary and if they want to throw some prizes at us, that would be great!
LISTENER COMMENT FROM MELISSA
Many moons ago when I was a young gal going to RIC...I was in an expository
writing class and was given the assignment; interview someone you admire. I
thought immediately of Paul and Al as they make me laugh all the time and
really got me through that morning commute from Middletown to Providence
every day. So I called the station left a message and low and behold they
agreed to let me sit and chat for a while. I was so nervous trying to act
like a grown up with my list of very intriguing question(whats your favorite
music??????) to my favorite, which was have you ever said anything on air
that was not planned and unbleepable? And Al told the funniest story about
talking about Opereation Desert Storm I believe, and how he was watching on
TV that the Saudi's blew up the $$$$$$ing bridge. I have never forgotten
tht conversation. The professor passed the article to our school paper and
for the first and last time in my life, I was published:) The best part and
the reason I write this email is for years after whenever I saw them
anywhere HJY event or not, they always stopped to say Hi:) Its just the
kind of guys they are. Unfortunately I have not ran into either in a while
but I know i could stop and say Hi and they would recall who I was. Anyhow
this may not be the kind of story you were looking for but It is my favorite
thing about Paul and Al.
LISTENER COMMENT FROM NATALIE
Happy Anniversary Guys! What would Tim's birthday run be without you. For 10 years you guys have been getting him through the final miles of his marathon with your special dedication. Even with his Ipod readily available he still chooses to listen to you guys for the entire run. You're a huge part of this tradition that is very imporant to him! He's 50 this year and you guys are celebrating 19 years! Here's to many more years celebrating together!! Love you guys.
LISTENER COMMENT FROM GERSHON THE JEWISH FAN
At 5:15 AM on October 11, 1996 my wife went into labor with our youngest child.
Without a hesitation and even before calling the midwife, the first call I made was to Paul and Al to request the song 5:15 by the Who. After telling them why I wanted the song, I received a big Mazal Tov from the dynamic duo.
Later that morning I had to run in to work to drop off paperwork for my secretary to finish and told my assembled co-workers that Andrea was in labor.
They said: "Oh that's old news, we already heard about it on Paul and Al"
Happy Anniversary guys from your biggest Jewish Fan!
