    I ran across it a couple times, listened for a few minutes, and kept on running.

    I think the underlying angst against these guys is due to Howard and Tim's decision to not promote the show at all, that in turn leaves many fans feeling the show was just pushed on them. Horrible management and leadership. With that said....the guys put on a good show..,. they come prepared....They have solid material.....and I find it fun to listen to the commerodity of actual long time friends. :clap:

    They remind me of a college radio show.

    Abe Kanan came from Mancow's Morning Madhouse

    The show is on the air for the following reasons:
    1) It's given to Howard for free
    2) Abe Kanan is Jewish


    Any questions?

    I actually kind of like the Abe Kanan show- it doesn't annoy me at all like Howard's show does lately. I also love the Jay Thomas show.

    Abe Kanan is still listed on Mancow's wiki page as a former Producer, writer, character actor and creator of phone scams who left the show in 2006. Another Mancow refugee who showed up on H101 is Scotty Ferrall. Al Lewis (Grandpa Al) is listed as a former regular -- I wonder who had him first, Mancow or Howchie?

    Looks like Chicago may be Buchwald's "minor league" and the talented or desperate go on to other things, like SiriXM.

    Interestingly enough, Abe used to have a wiki page, himself, which has apparently been deleted. Wonder if there's a story, there? Tried Google, hoping there might be a cached version of the page, but no such luck.

    As far as how his show goes, I can't stand it. Too zoo-like. Too many unknown voices popping in, sounding like they all have ADD, which seems to be a requirement for morning shows.

    I think it's the worst show I've ever heard and that's saying a lot considering how much crap there is on H101. Their "phone scams" are horrible - completely fake and not the least bit funny, accompanied by hysterical laughter from those morons. Dead air is less annoying and more entertaining than Abe Kanan, his show is an insult to subscribers and proof that Howard cares nothing about his channels.

    ::in Howard's voice:: CANCEL, CUNT! You're just jealous!

    Oh, you're right though. When Sterngeek doesn't even bother to upload their shows, that's a sign.
