Mancow contributes to book, “The Chris Farley Show”


Talk Radio Network FM’s Erich “Mancow” Muller shares his stories in the new book “The Chris Farley Show,” a Biography in Three Acts scheduled to be released in May of this year. It is the true story of a man who lived to make us laugh and died as a result; written by Tom Farley Jr., Chris’s older brother and Tanner Colby.  In the book, Chris Farley, the Saturday Night Live star is remembered by his family, colleagues, and friends including Mancow host of Mancow’s Morning Madhouse.

Tom Farley Jr., author of The Chris Farley Show, was a special guest on Mancow’s Morning Madhouse 5/12. Mancow shared many of his personal memories of Chris Farley and their time together; he played several voicemails that Chris Farley had left for him over the years.  During the segment Mancow said, “In retrospect, I wish I would have picked up the phone, maybe I could have done something.”

Chris Farley moved back to Chicago, and took up residence in John Hancock Center, where the radio studio of Mancow was also located.  According to the book, “Chris frequently popped in at the show (Mancow’s Morning Madhouse) on his way in or out of the building…the show gave Chris a stage whenever he needed one.”
