    After Dan's (2nd) brilliant call to Wiggy, I thought it would be interesting to go back and listen to how Howard used to handle critical calls. It's pretty interesting how he used to be so confident that he could actually make the criticism at him funny, whereas he came so unhinged when Dan called in that he seemed a minute away from an aneurism.

    From 1996

    From mid to late 90s...really good one showing how Howard could really take the punches and stills stay funny

    the wig no longer argues with callers, he turns down their volume or hangs ups...

    Dan really got to him in the first call. Forgot about that. Howard was so rattled he went on for almost a minute after he cut him off. :jj:

    If you listen to the clip labelled "From mid to late 90s...really good one showing how Howard could really take the punches and stills stay funny" he actually is taking a string of calls from folks who are busting on him. The 2nd guy who phones calls him "lazy" and Howard actually whips out his "what do you do for a living?" defense! Still, Howard comes across as very confident and keeps the whole thing funny and doesn't let the criticism get to him...unlike now.

    He would even use those calls and vicious voice-mails as bumpers going in and out of commercials.

    Interesting to see the evolution - I would listen to a best of week if there was a theme like this.

    I love how Dan seems so delightfully amused by Sterns increasing frustration. The fact that Dan is amused by Stern is such lovely belittling behavior...and the king can't believe some lowly serf has the audacity to find his histrionics laughable.
