"I don't wear a hairpiece!" - the full MJ Kelli clip!



A while back, we brought you a small clip of a 1994 radio interview in which, live on-air, Tampa Bay area DJs "MJ Kelli" (real name Todd Schnitt) and "BJ Harris" told Bill Shatner point-blank that they liked his hairpiece. A newspaper report describing the incident can be read here.

"MJ Kelli"

We weren't sure if we would ever be able to track down the entire (toupologically highly important) exchange - but now we have and present it to you below:

Bill Shatner is evidently deeply shocked at the brazen shift from "performance banter" to such a deeply personal, in his mind, "attack". Does he tell a small fib by denying his toupee-wearing? Of course he does...

Our sincere thanks to "DJ Reach" for sending us the clip! Check out his Bill Shatner "Chop Shop" megamix (which includes clips from the above exchange) here and visit his MySpace page here.

  2. Ironically, MJ Kelli's hair looks at least as bad as some of the rugs Bill wore in the '70s.

    Karma is a bitch.

  3. I like how at first he's very calm about it and denies it coolly. Then, realizing the full impact of the accusation, reverts to 4th grade: "MJ? what does that stand for.....MOST JERK?" Oh, Shat.

  4. Does anyone remember some clips played in the 90's on the Howard Stern show taken from Shat's appearance on Larry King. Larry was taking callers for Shat and one question went like this "Mr Shatner I'm a big fan" Shat responds "Thank you" The caller follows up with "Is that a toupee, baldy? Shat says "Is that a what?" The another caller chimes in with asking "Why are you hairless?" Larry then cuts to a break. I heard this so many times in the 1990's but cannot find it anywhere online today.

  5. Totally uncool of those guys to do that. He was a guest on their show, and to sandbag him like that ... What a couple of unprofessional losers, and basically just aholes.

  6. LOL. That's really funny. He should have just laughed it off.

  9. Shatner, originally replies to the question Does he wear a hair, "Well Its", then says i don't wear, etc. He almost gives the game away, but then changes his way of thought. anybody else notice this?
