    From inside the lair... A staffer admits the same 30 people call everyday. I remember the good old days when the whole board was lit up. [​IMG]

    That's impressive that 100% of the audience attempts to call into the show.

    The oft quoted figure that "only 1% of listeners ever call into a talk radio program" seems about right here.

    It's pretty obvious most of the callers are pre-screened regulars who aren't going to deviate from the script. Every time Howard tries to give away a prize he has a hard time finding someone who hasn't already won in the last 6 months.

    sounds about right. i liked when sterno mentioned today that he had jd search for 'show content' by specifically looking for positive commentary/newsclips about howard...

    btw: remember when sterno advised david lee roth to take the negative calls, to keep his radio show 'honest and exciting'. ha!

    They probably work out a weekly schedule when the show is offline. Pre-approved callers with pre-approved questions. Callers who won't ever go off script . . .

    A bunch call Monday for example with their pre-approved questions of praise for Wiggy & The Cunt. He picks up if he feels like it when he's not pretending he's the King of the world . . .

    Will the call screener from Nick and Artie posts here sometimes, and in one of the listening threads we had going I asked him how many callers the show gets. (It's definitely the real guy since I called the show and asked him if it was him posting.) He said that they get 20 to 30 in the first 15 minutes of the show. I'm sure the 30 number for THSS is off because of caller censoring, but I thought Stern would get way more than that.

    It's used by Type O Negative, they're a pretty good band.

    Maybe Sal and Richard just can't dial their cellphones any faster at 6am?
