He is Neapolitan Italian on his mother's side, but his father's full heritage has always been a "grey area". He had only previously known of his German ancestry on that side of his family. Was an All-County baseball player, as a third baseman for Union High School in Union, New Jersey Favorite drink is Jack Daniels and water. Likes to drink beverages using a straw, even when taking shots of liquor. His indulgences in food and alcohol provide almost daily comic fodder for the rest of the "Howard Stern" (1994) cast. There are few foods high in calories, fat, carbohydrates, salt or sugar that Artie doesn't eat in excess and his drunken exploits are legendary. Mr. Lange maintains a good sense of humour about his shortcomings, and enjoys his role as comic foil on the show.
