One of the Howard Stern Show’s great personalities, Riley Martin born May 9, 1946, died on December 22, 2015, at the age of 69. In celebration of his life, Howard Stern and the rest of the crew paid tribute to Martin by reliving old moments and celebrating his life.
The Riley Martin Show was broadcast on Howard 101 from 2006 until 2015. The subject matter for Martin’s show often revolved around his alleged personal experiences with extraterrestrial beings.
Riley describes seven types of extraterrestrial’s who reside in a mothership near Saturn:
The Biaviians, the aliens who have had the most interaction with Martin
The Targzissians, who are malevolent reptilians
The Stagyians, who have a bony, leathery appearance
The Dorians, who resemble blonde-haired, blue-eyed humans
The Insectillians (aka the Skreed), who are “smart bugs” five feet tall
The Nyptonians, who are “water people” with “underwater bases” on Earth
There is also a seventh race of aliens whose name Martin can’t pronounce
Howard talked about how much Martin hated his pay while working for him and said that Martin thought he could be earning much more because of his popularity.
Stern played a bunch of clips throughout his segment remembering Martin especially the fact that he always complained about his salary. The Stern Show also dug up some of their favorite prank calls that were made to Martin and the hilarious manner in which they were handled.
Howard said that Martin was one-of-a-kind and that there would be no one else like him. He gave his final goodbye and the rest of the crew including some of the Wack Pack who paid tribute to their fallen friend.
Rest in peace Space Cowboy.
