    I am not a big conspiracy guy but I do find it odd that the normally funny Stern Show Shuffle has been playing an awful lot of more recent bits lately. Before, you could hear more stuff from the KROQ and even WNBC days but this week has been a lot of crap from the Sirius 2009-2010 era. Alot of that are celebrity interviews, which in my opinion suck after you heard them the first time. I know it is supposed to be totally random and it could just be coincidence that this is happening but I would bet money that if Howard wasn't going to be on a major network show we would still be hearing Billy West as Marge Schott saying "Maaarch against the NIGGAAAS!!"

    Where are you seeing/hearing announcements about upcoming bits?

    Also, if they're making announcements about the next day's shuffle, then it's obviously not random.

    Have not listened this week. I also cancelled my sub on my work truck. Wanted to keep internet listening only but they said it would cost about the same as a radio sub. I had 2 radio and internet sub.

    Oh, and they also credit me on the remaining months on the radio sub on the work truck and gave me 6 free months on the other subs.

    Is "Shuffle" just random or are they in theory trying to put quality repeats on? I was surprised to see that awful and embarassing Alexa Joel interview show up again. God help us if anyone in programming thinks that episode was EVER worth repeating.

    I believe it is random since they have replayed bits where Howard says 'faggot', "Reggie" and other verboten words on the evolved HSS but it just seemed that ever since the announcement of Howard being on AGT the shuffle has been full of celebrity kiss ass interviews.

    How could anything be truly random if they've gotta go through and make sure all references to Alison Stern or her call-ins are deleted? A lot of the Chaunce call-ins used to be deleted regularly too, but I'm not complaining, just saying.
