One of the Stern Show's most controversial Wack Packer Riley Martin died yesterday at the age of 69.

In celebration of his life Howard Stern and the rest of the crew paid tribute to Martin by reliving old moments and celebrating his life.

"'The Riley Martin Show' was broadcast on Howard 101 from 2006 until 2015.

The subject matter for Martin's show often revolved around his alleged personal experiences with extraterrestrial beings, specifically an alien race known as the Biaviians," according to the official Howard Stern webpage.

"In 1990, Martin penned his book 'The Coming of Tan,' which outlined his incredible account of being abducted by the Biaviians in 1953 at the age of 7."

The cause of death is still unknown according to TMZ. Stern talked about how much Martin hated his pay while working for him and said that Martin thought he could be earning much more because of his popularity.

Stern played a bunch of clips throughout his segment remembering Martin especially the fact that he always complained about his salary. The Stern Show also dug up some of their favorite prank calls that were made to Martin and the hilarious manner in which they were handled.

Stern said that Martin was one-of-a-kind and that there would be no one else like him. He gave his final goodbye and the rest of the crew including some other Wack Packers paid tribute to their fallen friend.
