    Yes, I still listen. It's inexplicable, but I still do. Even so, there are only a few things that are so not-funny, stupid or boring that I fast forward through. They are:

    - Kathy Griffin. Can't stand the bitch for many reasons. Voice, plastic surgery, personality, stupid body that she thinks should be shown off, annoying...
    - Stern's Vietnam war stories. So not funny that I cringe listening. Has always been bad.
    - Joan Rivers. Won't have to FF her anymore
    - That one impersonator who does Bruce Jenner. All his voices sound the same and the writing is horrible
    - And as of late, Ronnie riffing, which used to be hilarious. The idiots don't realize that Ronnie is funniest when he's not in on the joke. Now that they have him manufacturing these fake sex tips and other bits, not funny -- he ain't no comedian. Also, Fred's impersonation of him has changed and isn't great anymore and Robin's riffing always bought the flow to a halt.

    Stern is the king of running originally funny content into the GROUND.

    However, I never thought Fred's impression of Ronnie was that great anyway. He's impersonating Gilbert impersonating Dice, but without funny punchlines.

    Yeah, Vietnam war stories cringe worthy especially since this asshole was never even in the military.

    That's one of the things that makes me think nobody (including the media) listens to Howard's show. In this PC world, wouldn't somebody have called him out for joking about killing women and children and mutilating their bodies? Asian-American groups have gotten pissed and demanded apologies for things much more trivial than this.

    When I'm listening to old shows, I usually fast forward whenever a female guest is on the show. They usually don't have anything interesting to say and I get douche chills when Howard is begging them to get naked. This morning, I lasted about 5 minutes into a Jennifer Tilley interview in which she bragged about how big of a fan of the show she was, but she couldn't identify the voices of Wendy the Retard, High Pitch Eric, or Jeff the Drunk.

    What's worth NOT fast forwarding thru these days?

    When I was still listening I'd fast forward as soon as I heard a Ted Kennedy impression. I'd keep skipping ahead til I didn't hear it anymore. (usually 30mins)

    I'd always skip the Joan Rivers interviews too.

    The Ronnie stuff was funny, now it is contrived. The Vietnam stories are horrible. The impressions of his parents were hilarious but, he wears everything out.

    That pretty much describes everything about the Stern Show. They haven't come up with an original idea in years and just keep resurrecting tired old bits that everyone is sick of.

    I always hated this one:

    Anybody can do opera Robin, listen to me and tell me this doesn't sound exactly like the opera... (followed by 20 minutes of talk-singing nonsense).

    I always laughed at the Vietnam stuff. Especially when he says he ate his own shit and making ear necklaces. Screw you guys.

    Especially since their pool of material has shrunk due to PC correct bullshit and everyone who has left or been fired.
