    The balls that this show has to piss on it's listeners (what's left of them) knows no limits. Stern slowly started bringing in more ads, commercials, and live reads. First they would take a commercial at the 45 minute mark, then 30, then 15 minutes into the show they would take a break.

    The Wrap Up Show has taken that concept to the extreme today. Three Minutes! Three minutes into the hour long Wrap Up Show they are taking a break. If you have the online player look at it. Jon (can I get my tongue further up Howard's ass) Hein, starts the show at 11:17am by playing a recap, then at 11:20am says "let's take a break." A break from what? Pushing a button to play clips from this morning for two minutes.

    I can't think of another radio, TV, or News Show that is an hour long that takes a break in the first 3 minutes. Every time you think this show can't become more of an embarrassment they find a way to pull it off.

    At this point, a squatty potty commercial is more entertaining that the show.

    Actually just running non-stop commercials for 30 minutes would be an improvement over the new improved WUS.

    Have they considered running a 60 cycle tone instead of the wrap up show? That sounds more entertaining.

    I can't wait for Hein to get canned. People seem to think he's loaded from selling that stupid website. Didn't he get something like a million?
    That's not anywhere approaching 'fuck you' money. You can't retire on that unless your already 65 or you don't mind living very simply.

    I think they were doing the audience a favor. I don't know if most people can take listening to Jon Hein kiss Howard's ass for more than 3 minutes at a time.

    Wiggenstein isn't going to fire his most loyal yes-man.

    In fact he keeps Hein around precisely *because* he's so fucking bland and he doesn't have to worry about being upstaged. And if anything even mildly interesting or entertaining does attempt to creep into the Wrapup Show - let's say like Sal coming in to share some backoffice story - Howard immediately has Marci put a stop to it so that WUS can stay focused on HOWARD HOWARD HOWARD and what an amazing intereviewer HOWARD is and how nobody does it better than HOWARD.

    His ass kissing was really bad before but it's so out of control the WUS is unlistenable now.

    I know what you mean....but, Lisa G changed everything. She was the hugest ass kisser on earth (and a member of the tribe no less!). No one is totally safe.
