Pauly Shore was scheduled for five minutes during the eight o’clock hour to discuss his newest film, “Encino Man II: Back to Encino.” Instead, the two disc jockeys spent their time peppering Daniel Schorr with questions he was unprepared to answer. A spokesman for Mr. Schorr said he was particularly incensed by the pair's repeated insistence that he “had some inside scoop on Brendan Fraser.” Brendan Fraser was Mr. Shore’s co-star in the film “Encino Man. ” Mr. Schorr finally lost his temper, began shouting obscenities, and hung up the phone.
“We thought we were speaking to Pauly Shore , not this other Schorr guy,” the pair wrote in a posting on their web site. “We accept responsibility for the lack of zaniness, craziness, and wackiness during the segment. We know how you have come to rely on us for your daily dose of nuttiness, and we let you down. It won’t happen again.”
Station manager Guy Rusizki said the mistake, while regrettable, was understandable. “Both Pauly and Daniel share the same agent,” he said. “We’ll be more careful next time.”
