In this extended transcript of his interview with correspondent Tracy Smith for "Sunday Morning," broadcasting giant Howard Stern opens up about his parents and wife, psychoanalysis, apologizing for his past interviews, the freedom of being on SiriusXM satellite radio, and the art of the interview which, he says, is disappearing. Howard Stern: My mother said to me, I said, "Oh mom, tomorrow I'm talking to 'CBS Sunday Morning.'" She goes, "Why don't you tell me you're on TV?" I go, "No, no, no." I'm trying to explain to her that it's taped in advance. (LAUGHS) Tracy Smith: So, your first two books were best sellers, they set records. Stern: They did. Smith: And now you're saying, "Throw 'em away"? Stern: Yes, yes, that's the message in the new book. First of all, I didn't expect to write a new book. You know, I was done with books, the world of books. They're torture. They take a lotta time and I actually put a lotta thought into these things. But I looked at my last two books … [Read more...] about Extended transcript: Howard Stern

Produced by Clare Friedland, Lourdes Aguiar, Elena DiFiore and Shoshanah Wolfson [This story previously aired on July 15, 2017. It was updated on Dec. 29, 2018.] Matt Herren still struggles to make sense of what happened the night of Oct. 12, 2012, when his close friend, Ryan Poston, was killed. "I think about him every day," Herren said. "You don't think something like that is ever going to happen to someone you know." "Is there something I could've done that could've prevented that? And I know a lot of people in his life had to have felt the same way," Herren told "48 Hours" correspondent Peter Van Sant. How did things spiral so out of control between Ryan and his girlfriend, Shayna Hubers, that she shot him to death -- insisting it was to protect herself? "What was lost when your friend was shot and killed?" Van Sant asked Herren. "He's the type of person that you want in your life," he replied.

Harrison Smith, The Washington Post Published 4:43 pm PST, Tuesday, December 18, 2018 Galt MacDermot, a composer who gave the Age of Aquarius its rock and roll soundtrack in the Broadway musical "Hair," wrote the score to a Tony-winning adaptation of "Two Gentlemen of Verona" and became a widely sampled staple of 1990s hip-hop, died Dec. 17 at his home on Staten Island, one day before his 90th birthday. The precise cause was not immediately known, said his daughter Elizabeth MacDermot. A onetime church organist and choirmaster in Montreal, MacDermot was perhaps an unlikely choice to compose the music for "Hair," which opened on Broadway on April 29, 1968 - a date chosen by the producer's astrologer - and featured hallucinogenic drug use, draft-card burning, frank discussions of homosexuality and an infamous nude sequence at the close of the first act. Then 39, living in a quiet Staten Island neighborhood with his wife and children, he had received two Grammy Awards as a … [Read more...] about Galt MacDermot, composer of ‘Hair’ and ‘Two Gentlemen of Verona,’ dies at 89
