I recently listened to some very old shows of H and it was bittersweet. He was so much better back then, had some energy, had some balls. I think back then he had a pretty active role in the show. With the Organization that is built up around Howard now, I doubt that he has to do much of anything. I imagine him showing up as late as he can (they can play the music, and the clips and the blah blah until he comes in). He can sit down, quickly look at the schedule, all the bits that have been written and prepared for him. If he has a guest, all the questions are ready. What does he really have to do? Hey now. Break for commercials, break for Howard News, play some bits. I guess he is there for almost 4 hours, but maybe he is on the air for 2.5 hours or less. What do you guys think.
