    What would he have to do to win you back as a fan?

    Or is there no way back at this point?

    Discuss.

    Nope. No way. The spell has been broken. I am never going back.
    I don't believe one word that comes out of his mouth.

    No way not never. There is nothing he can do to make a fan again, there is no guest that he has had on that has made me want to listen since Artie left. Even if he brings Artie and Jackie back together I would not listen for more than the first show, and I would never pay for his show. Even if he started doing a roast a week, which were the funniest shows I would not listen.

    I would try it again if he put someone witty in the chair and let them be funny, took some real calls, mixed it up again.

    if Seinfeld had stayed on air for another 10 years I wouldn't still love it as much as I do

    everything runs it's course--I still listen a fair amount--enjoy some of it quite a bit--and sometimes it's just noise in the background

    I'd give a retooled show a try but with everything that's been exposed I'd feel like the retooling would just be a new "act" since sincerity is long gone.

    Sure, he would have to take a HUGE pay cut.

    Hire Billy West at $5 million a year
    Fire Robin.
    Re-hire Jackie, and make him and Artie share a jumbo seat.
    Ignore the dump button and ignore political correctness.
    Get Beth on the Sybian.
    Give out 1 year free subs to everyone with a satellite radio.

    There's no going back. He's revealed his true self and it ain't pretty. Say what you want about Robin, but she never hid the fact that she was a cunt. She just got cuntier. Howard presented himself as an honest, horny, heterosexual, conservative everyman. He was none of those things.

    Yes, I am a sucker and forgive people easily, but it would take him working a 5 day week, coming clean with the bullshit about cancelling all these shows like SFN, the geek show, firing so many staff with not even a good bye...I think that would do it...and he will never, ever concede to this!

    He's too far over the pussy homo, liberal cliff. The worst of it all? Its all officially 100% scripted. Howard used to have major scripted elements of course, but they were funny with fred, jackie, and billie involved. However we all know the best shit was not Kurt Volheim Jr. or the like, it was when back office shit made its way on the air and Howard was able to channel it into great radio.

    Now? We get JD reading ronnie's poem on the air. We get fake hypnotist shit. and we get JD "writing" poems to Katy Perry. Oh yea lets not forget those amazingly talented impressionists doing Mitt Romney.

    Howard is a faggot who quite obviously was never funny himself, but surrounded himself with the best. However even when they left Howard was unbelievable in taking what may seem like mundane bs and turning it into great radio. More and more he's lost all desire for that and stripped all material from the show i.e., the back office dynamics and replaced it with outsourced "comedy" that literally no one gives a fuck about.

    Howard is basically an orchestra leader. However he used to have the New York Philharmonic playing instruments and he directed them. He then let them walk and continued to be a great orchestra leader with an above average orchestra, though not the elite he once led.... Then Howard fired the band to make even more money, hired 3 Jamaican subway bucket drum players and that is where we are today.
