Does this board just listen to Stern to complain?

    are there really any FANS of the show left?

    I can't imagine what people get out of it anymore besides disgust humor.

    yeah, i'm new here.

    I stopped listening since i've been at dawgs, but at sfn, the humor of the board was funnier than the show so i followed the show just for the lulz of the threads.

    Yes and no.

    Nah, it's just a bitch fest. If you're into hate, this is your place.

    Yeah a lot of us are SternFansNetwork refugees that have been booted from SFN. No I dont think there are any Howard loyalists on this site (maybe Babalooney) :dontknow:

    I love to hate Wiggy. Lots of fun. I get good laughs here every day.

    I was booted from SFN a year or two ago for making a beth joke(that Joey Boots loser had me banned)

    I was just wondering why adding an O&A board was such a tough decision.

    It's amazing how the show was so great that a hug fan base came together to create a site that loves the show. Now the show has completely lost all its fans.

    I guess I don't understand how the people here would be opposed to a show like O&A.

    Even many of us former Stern can't stand O&A. I don't think that adding an O&A forum was about anything more that numbers.

    I listen to classic Stern all of the time. Just booted up 1994 starting with the day after OJ killed Nicole. That moves into the Jackie puppet months, the bridge jumper incident, and lots of great times. I'll probably go all of the way into the week after OJ is found not guilty. The 'I see OJ call' the OJ song parody contest. Tons of classics during that time. Billy West would do Red constantly. I've got hundreds of hours of quality Stern Show loaded up for the next few months.

    After that I have all of my Gilbert appearances, then Gilbert as Dracula featuring the Whack Pack, then the roasts, then the Artie era Vegas shows, then some of the un-aired Kinison shows that didn't make his special. Meanest listener contest, the Gary Apology tape, Scott's pushup challenge and Scott's anal pay-per-view, and a few other random clips. Anyone complaining about Stern is just being a whining douche.

    Do I listen to Stern on Sirius now? Not really. The show is terrible. I catch the specials. The Kinison special was awesome. I love Jackie's Joke Hunt as well. But in the mornings I listen to the full O&A show and then Sam's Shit Show. I skim Marksfriggin and see if anything is good. The Jeff Ross interview after the Rosanne roast was amazing. As was Howard interviewing Amy Schumer. Even O&A said that they were jealous of what Howard got out of Amy. The WWF even threw a shoutout to the interview in a hilarious way.

    But my job allows me to listen to my mp3 player all day as I'm basically the boss. So I plow through old shows constantly of Stern. Marksfriggin is a godsend for me, allowing me to track down particular bits and guests. Obviously the Sirius Stern now is horrible. Three days a week. No third microphone with a comedian. No effort at all. But anyone who think that there isn't Stern content to entertain them simply isn't a fan.

    I could re-listen to 1986-2004 Stern Show for the rest of my life and be content. And Jackie's Joke Hunt because I love one line jokes.

    They have great guests and there are some great, classic Youtube clips. But O and A themselves aren't funny in any any way. To me at least. They seem to be a couple of fake angry douche bags.

    In a nutshell: we used to laugh with Howard and nowadays we generally laugh at him because he became everything we all hated.

    It's also a testament to how great the show was, that a huge fan base has come together to hate on it.

    I think their social commentary is more in line with mine and the fact they have people from my interests on(walking dead, the wire, breaking bad, documentaries, writers, film makers..etc) makes it even better.

    not that this was supposed to be an O&A thread

    They do get great guests. I don't know anybody that listens to them though. The fun part about Wiggy's show back in the day was talking with other fans. I don't know anyone that still listens to Wiggy, so I talk about it here.

    Dawg Saloon has become the MST3K of the Howard Stern Show.
