Howard Stern:  Shut Up And Listen!

In April of 1995, 32 year-old New Yorker Debbie Tay died from an apparent drug overdose.  Respecting her wishes, her brother and sister had her body cremated.  Three months later, against her brother’s request, a portion of her remains were brought onto Howard Stern’s radio show where Stern picked through the cremated remains, holding up bone fragments and quizzing show members on whether they were pieces of skull, rib, teeth or other body parts.  Soon after the show aired Debbie Tay’s brother and sister took legal action against Stern. 

“Howard Stern:  Shut Up And Listen!” begins with the story of this lawsuit and moves on to examine the fine line of The First Amendment that Stern has walked toward making his show one of the most successful and controversial programs  in the history of radio.

Blind Tom  -   Screenplay  -  True Story

At an 1865 Philadelphia convention of the world’s most respected musicians and music historians a blind and autistic 16 year-old pianist known as “Blind Tom” was declared among “the most wonderful phenomenon in musical history” and compared favorably to Ludwig Von Beethoven and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.

The “Blind Tom” they were referring to was Thomas Wiggins, a negro slave born blind and autistic in 1849.  Though these mental and physical handicaps limited many areas of his life his ability on the piano was unparalleled and far reaching.

By the age of four he was playing back, perfectly, classical music pieces he had heard only once.
At the age of eleven he was invited to the White House to play for President James Buchanan.
By the time he was 16 he had memorized over 7,500 pieces of music he could call up and play on command like a human jukebox.
Before he turned 21 he had already toured all over the world including Japan, Europe and South America.

His strange abilities included playing two songs at once while singing a third and playing long complicated classical pieces with his back turned to the piano.  The financial grosses of his musical tours totaled over 25 million dollars but Thomas Wiggins never saw any of it.  He was the last legally owned slave in American history and died penniless in New Jersey in 1908.
