At least Howard brings something to the show. These other shows suck!

    Hate him or not Howard's show at least brings some continuity and personality to the radio. This opie and Anthony and rich and cavino are fucking unfunny amateurs! One thing dickehead stern is not is an amateur. Jay at least seems to bring some of his nutty personality to his show. But opine and Anthony's views, conversation seems moronic. And not even a little funny. In that regard stern still rules. I'm down to jay, the nfl, radio shows from the 40's, and the comedy channels. Stern still an asshole but much better than the others even at this stage in the game.

    I don't think anyone here would deny that Howard is/was the best radio entertainer. Most here will also agree he stopped trying after the Artie incident.

    O&A do tend to get better guests, and let them talk more. that being said, i never really got into their show. it lacks the "must listen" of early Howard.

    I listened to Howard 100 for about 15 minutes last weekend, and I'm not sure I can think of anything I'd less rather listen to. Oprah reading "50 Shades of Grey", maybe?

    O&A and Jim Norton are a thousand times more funny and entertaining than Howard is at this point. I don't know how you fuckers can still listen to the wig anymore. :coffee:

    shows where they have Patrice o'neal sitting in for the entire time are a must listen.

    here are all 145 episodes if you ever consider giving them a shot

    right on. i've only heard a few of those, but really liked them. i occasionally listen to mp3s from a coworker who records their show. i'll tell him about that link too. i do like the way they let comedians just hang out.

    I wholeheartedly disagree. The best game in town is O and A. Main difference between these guys and Howard is that they actually have comedians on there every day. Granted there are times that they have a lousy show, but they're typically on 5 days a week...and they actually put some effort into putting together great classic content when they're not. In short, these guys actually have balls and take actual calls, unlike Howard's scripted B.S. And the list goes on....

    Howard is boring and unfunny and out of touch. O&A are relevant, funny and entertaining.

    Anthony is 100 times funnier than Howard
    Norton is 100 times funnier than Howard
    Opie is 50 times funnier than Howard.

    I don't listen to a show to be bored by a rich snob pelican in a wig and a cackling bedbound monster, I listen to a show to laugh and be entertained.

    and O&A don't need writers to be funny.

    I have never been big O&A fans, but I find myself listening to them far more these days than Howard. They aren't in the same league as Howard in his prime, but they are tn times better than this Howard.

    Even being more than a little weirded out by listening to a 50-something Anthony complain about how his teenage girlfriend's school won't let him attend her prom last week was better than anything Howard has been putting on in years.

    O&A needed a comedian on today's show. The lack of Jimmy, or any comedian, really drags the show down.
