stuck rubber hose? radiator/header

Does anyone have an easy way to remove stuck radiator/heater hoses without destroying them?

I undo the clamp, and try to pull, twist, etc and it just wont budge

Big pliers that fit around the diameter of the hose. Clamp down on it and twist a bit, it should loosen up
