Jackie Martling

Jackie “The Joke Man” Martling called in to talk about his new memoir, “The Joke Man: Bow to Stern.”  We discussed his early radio career writing jokes for Rick Dees, why he doesn’t mind talking about his time with Howard Stern, and why jokes for kids don’t have to be stupid and annoying.  Plus: a shout out to Chicago’s own “Uncle Lar,” Larry Reeb.
