    When a guest comes in and says they are a big fan of Freds......they obviously have not listened to the Sirius years.
    Fred was the king of carts......but has been a Sirius failure

    He seems to have lost or deleted all the sound drops too. What the fuck do he and Benjy do anyway, are they writers or something?

    He's a cart man. No not cartman. Everything fred used for 3/4's of his career was recorded on looped 8 tracks called carts. He had a remarkable filing system that no one was allowed to touch. Now that all he has to do is type in the song's name. He's fucked. I don't know if it's a case of not knowing the spelling or the names, but something keeps him from the instant recall the system has.

    There are, but the system they use only allows you to Queue up songs and takes forever to pull up other songs. So unless they're already in your queue and you don't feel like wasting 30 seconds of your show time pulling up a song, you gotta move the show along.

    That's why I think it's a name or spelling issue.

    he should just use iTunes and play the samples (they're 1:30 long… plenty for what they play).

    It's as if Fred doesn't know how to pull a search. Garrett has been able to pull some uncommon stuff on the Jay Thomas Show. There's no way the HSS system is less advanced than the JTS system.

    It's operator-error.

    Remember when Stern had a zillion tapes in the studio? My question is how the fuck they managed that mess?

    Looking up stuff digitally is so much easier than the old ways. Fuck, does Fred even know this little maneuver: Control F?

    Fred doesn't pay attention anymore.

    He's likely just as disgusted with Howard these days as many of the oldschool fans here. Keep in mind that many of Fred's most hilarious and offensive sound drops have been long since censored out of the evolved nbc approved Stern show.

    Nevertheless Fred has a family to feed and is smart enough to realize that he will never make this type of money again, hence the martian comes in, punches the clock, and goes home.

    They have to wake him up everytime they need him. He doesn't really have anything to do during most shows anyway. He is just pulling an Artie during his heroine days. In fairness to Fred, shows like today could put anyone to sleep.
