    I read this in another thread:

    How do these employees censor his old tapes? Like what would they cut out? And is there any actual proof for this?

    Allison has been cut from most of the old tapes. Possibly related to divorce agreement.

    They're called the tapes team and they work out of rented space down in tribeca

    They're stated purpose is to 'put together all the footage/specials for when THSS is on vacay'

    In reality they are there to censor. Most of the taped specials have been repeats for the last 2to3 years. The only other thing they could be doing with their time is going through the tapes and removing whatever howard doesn't want in there.

    That makes sense. What about Artie? Is he in all the old tapes?


    I did but no one responded and that thread had a different subject anyway.

    You can hear some of the edits when Howard is doing a live commercial and they cut out the name of the company. Howard will say something like, "Go to ___ Car Parts, where they always make a deal. Again that's ___ Car Parts in Long Island, tell em Howie sent you."

    Howard has stated there's no agreement, he's just thinks it's the right thing to do.
    But he lies on just about every subject, so who knows?:dontknow:


    Getting back to the OP, all the old tapes have been converted to a digital format by the "tapes team" which make it very easy to manipulate anything.
    Howard's voice is altered, Alison is gone, old commercials and sponsors are gone, any overt racism or sexism are gone....in a nutshell all the funny is gone.:down:

    Howard has left Artie's comments untouched, for the most part. The main way that Howard censors is by removing his ex-wife, as others mentioned, and by intentionally removing discussions of things that no longer fit his current image. It's really more a matter of not selecting shows and segments for Mastertape Theatre and various specials because they are homophobic, insulting to someone Howard is now friendly with, or extremely racist (when's the last time they played a lot of old Daniel Carver shows?). The biggest question is whether they have made cuts to the Tapes team, or if they have run out of material Howie approves of.

    I thought it was Alison herself that wanted her appearances removed from any old tapes? Also, the tapes team had nothing to do with changing Howard's voice. He has been overmodulating his voice to make it deeper ever since he came to KROQ. If you listen to the WeNNNNBC shows he sounds like the mensch that he is but once he went to KROQ and then Sirius his voice became about 5 octaves deeper.

    Yeah, I was listening to a 1994 recording that I... found somewhere and I was amazed by how fucking racist the show was at times. Also, lots of homophobic stuff and super dark, black humor.

    And it was really really really really funny.

    At one point they were talking about black people in movie theaters for over an hour. It was super racist but it had me cracking up almost the entire time.

    That's just lame and a bummer.

    I think all radio guys do that. When I listen to guys on the radio here, my speakers almost rattle because there's so much bass and compression in their voices.

    Proper modulation. Proper modulation. Green. Type. Of Tube. G-g-g-g-green Tube.

    Of course Howard says his modulation is "compression".
    "Scott....get in here....did someone mess with my compression?!"
