Joey Pajamas on Howard Stern
Joe has also made his presence known on the
Howard Stern Show.
That's right folks, Joe Chiofalo is in fact ... JOEY PAJAMAS.
A few years back Joey Pajamas entered a song parody competition
on the Howard Stern show. With $25,000 on the line, he knew he
had to come up with something great. After all, he listened to
the show everyday for years, and knew all of the personalities.
He's been writing and recording music since the age of 15 - he
at least had to send in something. With four days left before
the deadline he had an epiphany. He knew what he had to do.
Every night after working ten hours a day at his day job, he
wrote and recorded his submission.
As the announcement of the winners drew nearer, he heard the
good entries get praised with laughter and reverence, while the
bad ones were scoffed at and dismissed as crap. And still,
Pajamas heard nothing of his parody. Even if it didn't place, he
was sure it would at least get a mention, a laugh from the gang
if nothing else. Well the winners were announced and Pajamas
went on with his life wondering what the f__k happened?? Did
they even receive his disc??? Confident that his parody was air
worthy, he continued to send his entry in to the station every
three months for more then a year. He sent them in to Robin and
Gary, then to Gary and Fred, then to Robin and Howard, and so
on. Finally, after what seemed like forever, he sent in three
discs. One to Robin, one to Gary, and the third one to a new
comer to the show, his now good friend, Richard Christy.
Finally Pajamas heard back. Richard explained that his original
lyrics were too risque for testicle radio. He advised Pajamas to
change the lyrics and he'd get it to the powers that be. Pajamas
went right to work re-recording his original vision. Unlike most
parody submissions, Pajamas starts from scratch in his Midi
studio using only great samples and a microphone. NO BITCH
KARAOKE tracks here.
Within two weeks it was not only finished and delivered
to Richard, but the second verse was used as the intro to
Robin's news. "Lovin Robin's Back Door" finally had its moment
in the sun. The brilliant spin off of John Fogerty's " Looking
Out My Back Door" This would be the beginning of a wonderful
collaboration between the brilliance which is the Howard Stern
Show, and a singer/songwriter with a witty, perverted sense of
humor. From that day on Pajamas has sent in all kinds of comedic
bits. Some of them parodies, some of them original snippets. His
country cover version of "This is Beetle" was a big hit, and
"Anal Receiver " was number one in the top five in the country
"He's real talented" says Howard Stern, the King of all
Pajamas finally got to meet his pal Richard, along with most of
the staff at the Howard Stern Film Festival. They've even worked
together on a few bits. One with PJ supplying the music/lyrics,
and Richard laying in a brilliant choice of his favorite Homo
discipline sound bite.
Since then Joey Pajamas has become a major contributor to the
show. "Really very talented" says Howard Stern, the King of all
media. With tracks like "Lovin' Robin's Backdoor", "Sal's a Moe"
and endless X-rated parodies, Joey Pajamas is there to stay.
