    Okay if he does it during a commercialbreak, that's fine, I guess it's an American thing. Or even inbetween segments, I wouldn't complain.

    But lately Howard had really bad timing with reading livecommercials. Because Robin talked about something awful, like that teacher that fed kids sperm or someone who got murdered, and then Howard is saying, "yeah. You know what you need? You need blablalbalbla some stupid american shit":facepalm: That's just bad timing and makes him look like he doesn't care what happened(maybe he doesn't, it happened outside his home-work route after all)

    Anyone else noticed this?

    I actually have respect for Opie (yes from that show) because he refuses to do livecommercials.

    Haven't you heard, The castrated one gets more money for his live reads...Ever since Sirius gave him a $20 million dollar pay cut, he needs the money...now the castrated one is bad as his whore wife...anything for a buck....

    Yeah I think he does, but at least he can try to make it look genuine right?

    In the KROQ days Howard must not have been paid for live reads because he bitched and bitched about doing them. Now not so much.

    It's the mentions of John Vivavoovos (purveyor of the cargo pant to the stars) and Pepsi that really irk me. That's precisely the thing he used to berate others for doing - using his position to get freebies or grease wheels. It's all very sneaky.

    Isn't her name Allison Stokke? That's probably why she hasn't replied.

    Not that I care about Robin and the news anymore, chances are I'm already bored with the show by the time he brings in Jon Hein, but with the live reads and the regular commercials you get about 30 minutes of actual content and 15-20 minutes of commercials if you break it down...somebody the other day listed what Howard gets per live read and its some insane amount of cash.....

    Right. Well I just meant that he also should time his commercial time a bit more carefully and not in the middle of the show. Anthony and Jim also do livereading outside of commercial breaks, but only right before or right after a commercialbreak, not in the middle of a segment.
    Yep. Do you remember how much he gets per live read? I understand the concept, Howard is the biggest radioshow in- and outside of Sirius, but I'm sure people already wrote the show and complained about livereads during Robin's news. I guess advertising on THSS is kind of like advertising on the Superbowl or something.
