Originally hailing from Alabama, Crazy Alice claims to be half African-American and half Italian (with the surname Gotti), who freely admits to hating black people. Alice was discovered when she called the show from her California home, after which she flew to New York to appear live in Stern's studio on December 9, 1999. She is best known for filibustering during arguments (as heard in the Touch-Tone Terrorists, particularly with "Junkyard Willie"), having wild mood swings, and engaging in long screaming rants when called "Crazy Alice". During her long-winded rants, it is common for Stern to turn down the send (audio) from his microphone to the phone patch, while the crew discusses her lunacy or wagers on the duration of a given rant. On May 4, 2006 she expressed a preference for the moniker "Angry Alice", as she blames domestic abuse for her temper and erratic behavior. The "Who dis?" soundbite, commonly used throughout the show, was spoken by Crazy Alice.
