    Well? Let's see how influential Stern Show really is and how much ad money is being wasted or put to good use by the advertisers.

    An ex-gf of mine bought that bee pollen extract lotion because of the adds on the show. If I recall correctly, wasn't the wigs brother in law or some relative the founder of that company? Anyway that shit didn't work any better than jergens or aveeno and he got my cunt of an ex gf money, not mine.

    I switch channels whenever a commercial comes on and then check back in about 10 minutes or so.

    I'm not saying. But I will say that my balls have never been fresher or more hairless.

    Bought anything, no, but I did try to use one of his advertisers' services, though.

    Back in the early '90s, I owned an 1980 Oldsmobile that was on its last legs. One of Howard's big advertisers then was an outfit called Car Cash. Howard used to do live reads of their ads and made a big deal about how they would buy any car, regardless of make, model or condition, and pay you top dollar for it. They would even pick it up from your house if it didn't run.

    This sounded really good (I was young an naive then, not knowing that many of Howard's sponsors are scam artists) so I decided to call Car Cash about my Oldsmobile. I'll never forget that call.

    After about six rings, some guy with a deep voice answers the phone "Yeah?" I asked if this was Car Cash, and he answered "yeah". The guy sounded like he either just woke up from a solid sleep or just got out of prison or something. I told him about my Oldsmobile and he told me that Car Cash doesn't buy cars over 10 years old. I told him about the ad on the Stern show and he put his hand over the speaker and talked to someone. He came back and told me they'd give me 50 bucks for it. I said I wanted at least $250 and he said, nope, 50 bucks. I agreed and asked him when they will pick up the car. He asked me where I lived (Queens) and told me they only pick up from Brooklyn. I told him forget it and hung up.

    I ended up selling the car a year later to a guy in my neighborhood for $400. He promptly wrecked it. End of story.

    If I hear a company advertises on the Stern show, I would think it was a scam or just run by management with very poor judgment.

    I almost used Pajama Gram for my girlfriends birthday, but decided not too. Too pricey, unless it's actually high quality(doubtful).

    Back in the old days I bought a Brother P-Touch lable maker. I still have it and use it.

    I also bought "Crucified By the FCC". Still have it, but don't use it.

    Actually, Pajama Gram also advertises heavily on WFAN in New York, which is a major sports radio station. And they do live reads for it too. That, and Vermont Teddy Bear Company.

    Never bought anything advertised on the show. No need for a cheating website, fresh and sexy wipes, processed meatballs, or any of the other 2 bit sponsor's shitty merchandise.
