    The title of this post is not a rhetorical question to break Howard Stern's balls. I actually would love to find out if there are many members on here still tuning in to the show and I am very curious as to why you are still listening to the show.

    Up till this morning, I hadn't listened to the show in a few weeks. For the hell of it, I decided to listen to the show on November 13th. At least the first fifteen minutes of the show was Stern talking to Bobo about Bobo's medical illnesses. It was not just boring radio, it was actually putting me in a bad mood so I turned it off and put on some music. I am not sure how long this conversation with Bobo continued on for since I turned it off, but what the hell happened with Howard talking to a person that he knows annoys his audience, and for a good fifteen minutes none the less? How could he possibly think that we care about some random kiss ass caller having to have a catheter inserted in his penis. Stern used to have a good ability to figure out what would entertain his audience. He has either lost that ability or he stopped caring if his audience is entertained or not.


    I am really curious if there are any members on here that still listen to all, or at least most of the shows. I understand that habits are difficult to break even when that habit turns bad on you.

    So to those of you that are still listening, is it just out of habit or are there parts that you enjoy and you fast-forward through the boring parts of the show?

    Do any of you actual still enjoy most of the show and, honestly out of real curiosity, what about the show do you enjoy?

    I have a feeling you are not going to get much of a response to this thread.

    Listening threads are pretty active
    A lot are gifs though :D

    But a lot do listen (even though they seem to be in pain doing so)

    I still do. Part habit & to be honest I don't hang on to every word Stern says, so I get less bothered by things others do.
    I rarely hear Robin's news (not a fan of hers) & hate Jack & Rod with a passion. Everything else I either leave on in the background until I hear something I care to pay more attention to (Sutter, Metallica, McCartney)
    If Howard contradicts himself or avoids a topic, it doesn't effect my life. THSS is only a radio show to me in the same way I don't get that riled up over a TV series.
    But I enjoy seeing some of the inventive & talented members on here post their opinion & have fun with the show.

    I stopped a week into the new contract for similar reasons, I was getting both angry and depressed over what I heard, so I stopped. I still listen to old shows from MY archives, not his shit sanitized edits.

    Tried but couldn't. Brutal and gruesome murders are more hilarious than the Stern show at the moment.

    I still do, but I catch myself more and more at the dashboard yelling

    "SHUT THE FUCK UP YOU CHEAP JEW!!"

    You should see the faces I get from my fellow motorists. I love when they play the tapes on 101 though.

    The tapes where Iron Sheik just says "son of a bitch" over and over? Funny, I feel like there was once some "gay and faggot" thrown in there but I must've imagined it.

    I listen from force of habit. I find myself changing the channel a lot more though. His interviews are too long and hard to sit through. His PC rants are also pretty hard to listen too. AGT talk sucks also. There is less and less I want to hear from Hamptons.

    I faded fast when he didn't work all summer.

    Now I barely listen at all. I might catch 15 minutes of a replay, but I'm quick to change the channel.

    I probably listened to 20 minutes of the Gaga interview, but she's a twit and Howard worships her so I was out of there soon enough.

    Never thought I would get to this point, but his show is just awful and NOT FUNNY.
