    I found this great clip from 2009 in my archives to upload to my channel of a REALLY angry and articulate caller (Lee from San Francisco) who penetrated the WUS defenses to just eviscerate everything we complain about daily here. And it led to about a 40 min discussion with Howard forced to chime in. My description;

    "When fan disgruntlement had really begun to boil, angry caller "Lee from SF" has had enough of Howard daring fans to cancel. From the HOWARD STERN SHOW WUS on Jan 8th, 2009. Lee blasts Howard's lack of work ethic, guest selection and effort, Howie Mandel, Gary, Ralph, etc. Howard makes a RARE appearance as well on this WUS to answer the critiques."

    Could only make it through the first ten minutes. Gary is a complete retard talking about how great Hall & Oates are. That caller hit it out of the park on what the fans think of Hampton Howie.

    It's douche-chilling listening to Gary and Will's forced guffawing as they feign incredulity.

    Little did Lee know that, a year from his call, Artie would be off the show and Howard would be spending a month rambling about the edgy, outrageous things he would say to Ellen on American Idol. This was the beginning of the show's death knell. It's lowest point in three decades.

    Great call. It put everyone over there on the defensive and they couldn't handle the attack. :gangtrash:

    Lee may have been the one to fire the first shot in the "Fan Revolution".:grouch:

    Thanks for posting this. I'll definitely listen to this later this evening when I have some time. Just by listening to the first few minutes I could already tell Gary was gonna be a total douche as usual.

    It now appears that Wiggys amazing TV career is a failure.
    He seems to want us and his next radio employer to think he is cracking the whip at Studio 69. Suddenly GTD Howard is having meetings about radio stuff. Calling Gary on the work cell phone.

    It is about that time Stern plans his next radio marble heist.
    Will it be SIM cards Google, or Apple?
    Who will be the next 'partner' (victim) of Marble Von Wigstern?

    That was around the time Stern knew that he wasn't a partner
    Early stages of operation Rev 2.0 marble heist
    .... and early stages of lawsuit.
