MORE FROM CHARLIE WILDE:
My favorite radio memories include being part of a classic radio war between KDWB and WLOL

Hollywood Henderson, Spyder Harrison, and Cadillac Jack (now Human Numan at Sirius/XM) was
In 1995, I became the first American ever to host a morning show in London, England. After
a successful two-year stint hosting the breakfast show on KISS 100, government officials
forcibly removed me in the middle of my show after an extension of my work permit was denied
by Her Majesty. (Get the full story on YouTube) Even listener protests at 10 Downing Street
were not enough to keep me in the U.K. I am now off the Interpol threat list and free to
visit for short periods of time.
