Lange was outside Dan Tana’s in Hollywood with his friend and potential new radio partner Nick DiPaolo last night — when we asked how Howard would feel about his on-air comeback.

“Howard’s the greatest guy in the world” … Artie said … adding, “He’s been supportive of
everything that’s happened and he’s been a good man to me … so
hopefully he’ll be supportive of this … but you never know.”

As TMZ first reported, the people behind Artie’s project are hoping to lock a deal that would nationally simulcast the new show on DirecTV and Fox Sports Radio.

So far, we’re told … no official deal has been reached.
