NEW YORK (AP) - Howard Stern's radio guests expect him to air

their dirty laundry and play along. Pete Townshend isn't one of

them.

The legendary Who guitarist-songwriter ducked out of his

scheduled interview on Stern's satellite radio show on Wednesday

upon hearing Stern talk about a touchy subject for him - his 2003

arrest in London on suspicion of possessing child pornography.

Townshend was cleared of the charges.

Townshend, along with girlfriend Rachel Fuller and Who bandmate

Roger Daltrey, was listening to Stern's New York-based broadcast as

he waited in a London studio for his interview to begin. Co-host

Robin Quivers brought up the ``child pornography stuff'' and

Townshend's claims that he was abused as a child. ``Oh yeah, we

could ask him about that,'' Stern said. Townshend stormed out,

leaving Daltrey and Fuller to talk to Stern.

During that conversation, Quivers said that Townshend would have

walked out of the interview even ``if we didn't bring that up. He's

a real testy guy.''

Daltrey weighed in on Townshend's behalf, accusing Stern of

``sniffing dirty underpants.''

``Can you imagine you're accused of this stuff and then you're

found not guilty? If you had to defend yourself through this stuff?

The wounds are so deep on the man, and it's just tragic because

he's got so much to offer,'' he said.

Stern, who jokingly referred to Fuller as ``Yoko'' after it was

mentioned that Fuller had co-written a song on the new Who album,

wound up apologizing to Townshend.

``Tell Pete I am very sorry,'' he said. ``We would have had a

great interview with him. I really wish he'd reconsider this. We

adore him.''

The Who is in the midst of a 15-month concert tour all around

the world, its largest ever. The band's first album in 24 years,

``Endless Wire,'' is set for release at the end of this month.

Anyone listen to the Gary roast today? Holy crap that was hysterical. Sal was BRUTAL. Way over the line but I have to admit that most of it was really funny.

Artie was funny and Bob Levy is always good as well. Jackie BOMBED.

Jackie BOMBED.

Surprise surprise. How that man ever made it onto the radio is beyond me. I hear him all the time on XM Comedy and that is about the only time that I'm not laughing. The only laughter is coming from him laughing at his own jokes. Horrible.

What does he do the other 363 days of the year? His crap stand up in dive bars from Long Island to Rochester?

He has a new show on Sirius. Artie told him -- you have that show until I tell Howard I want that spot.

Artie really ripped him up. Said I am making $100,000 New Years night. Good call leaving over money.

"You" say you have nice TA TA's.

You have also predicted that the Jets will win every game, so far this year, according to your predictions.

With that huge margin of error, I conclude that your TA TA's are not what you make them out to be.

lol.. well i guess you will never know!

not nice calling V a liar. [-X

Do administrators have double secret permission to read beneath the asterisks Max?

Actually no, it shows up as **** for us as well, even if we edit it. That would be cool though. Sometimes I want to know if I was called a **** head or a **** head, lol.

Verde will tell anyone that listens how hot she is. As far as I know, nobody who is here now has any proof. Ultimately though when it comes to Verde, Whatever.
