    Howard is wondering if anyone would care....the ten remaining listeners would have to adjust their schedules but other than that it would go unnoticed:

    Various MarksFriggin clips on the topic:

    Howard started the show talking about how tired he was. He said he went to bed at 10 and got up at 4. He said he just wants to go to bed. He said he's thinking about starting the show at 7. He wondered if anyone cares. He said people can listen at any time anyway. Howard said he has to check with everyone to find out if they have guests. Howard said he's tired of getting up at 4 in the morning.

    Howard said Benjy has to fuck Fred right now to get the show to start at 7. He said he's going to talk to Gary and see if they can make that happen. Benjy said he needs this. Howard said he odes. Benjy said there are studies about cancer about how important sleep is. Howard said he has heard about that. Howard said that a lot of people listen on the app and they only care if they get 15 hours of shows. He said they don't care if they start later. Howard said he's thinking about doing it.
    Howard said it would make life easier in the summer if they did that. Howard said there's something depressing about going to bed when it's light out.
    Gary told Howard they could start tomorrow. Howard said they'll have to see. Howard said maybe it'll be on Monday. Benjy said he thinks it'll make the show even stronger. Fred said that Benjy will start showing up at 8 if they move it to 7. Howard asked Fred if he'll be happier. Fred said he would. Howard said they'll do it from 7 to 11. He said he thinks that will be fine. Robin said it will make his day longer. Howard said it will.

    Wrap Up Show - More Show Time Discussions. 06/10/14. 11:15am

    After the break Jon said they were joined by Shuli and Ronnie Mund now. He asked them what they think about the time change. Ronnie said no matter what you gotta do what you gotta do. Ronnie said he doesn't care. He said he'll get an extra hour of sleep. Jon asked if the traffic will affect him. Ronnie said he doesn't think that it'll make that much of a difference. He said he won't know how it will change until they go through it. Jon said he's just wondering if Howard will be in a better mood or a worse mood. Ronnie said he might be waking up at the same time. He said he thinks they will all be waking up at the same time. Jon asked how Howard deals with change. Gary said he doesn't like it but this is change he wants.

    Gary said he doesn't know of any other job where the boss's mood affects them so much. He said there's a weird thing that goes on there. Ronnie said one of them will get the brunt of it. Gary said that Will, Jon, JD and he are all in there trying to gauge what the mood is first thing in the morning. Gary said that some days he's in a great mood and sometimes not. Gary said that he is very capable of being in a shitty mood at 5:30 and rebounding quickly. He said you just don't know.
    Jon took a call from a guy who said that he gets in the car at 5 and he turns the show on at 5:30. He said he's already heard the show from the say before. He said he can't wait for 6 o'clock and the show start. He said he can't wait for 6 for the new show. Gary said he's in the car all day though so he could listen later. The caller said it's the first thing in the morning thing that he likes. He said it's the new material early.
    Shuli said Benjy is the one who is really excited about it. Jon said he could show up at 6:58 tomorrow. Gary said he might but they're starting at 6. He said no one said that they're starting at 7 tomorrow. He said they haven't changed it yet.
    Jon took a call from a guy who said he has to say that they're being a little unrealistic. He said getting up early and going to work that early is what a lot of people do. He said it's not like they're going to flip burgers at 3 in the morning. He said the listeners want the show to start at 6. Gary asked how it changes for him. The caller said he looks forward to the start of the show at 6. He said the live shows are the best. He said they're never going to make a change that will make everyone happy. Jon said that everyone was upset when Howard had a lesser schedule. He said he thinks that people will adjust though. Jon said the show will start at 7 and people will get used to it. Jon said that you have to adapt and get used to it. He said if Howard is happier then they're all better off. Jon said he sympathizes with people who are upset. He said that the show will be just as great at 7 as it was at 6. He said it sounds like Benjy has already made the adjustment.
    Gary said he used to do afternoons and they ended the show right on time. He said that he was able to go out and have a good time until 1 or 2 in the morning and he'd be fine the next day getting up at 10. Gary said it was a dream job. He said he misses those hours more than anything.

    It should end at 7:00 and keep his live reads. Just a full hour of commercials, same ratings.

    He just needs to call it a day. Seriously, at this point, what does it matter what time he starts his show.

    Howard has always said that he gets up at 4:00 AM. Not that it is that important, but I have always wanted to challenge him on that. I'll bet he gets up at 4:45 AM or 5:00 AM (still god awful early). The show really starts at around 6:07 AM and I am guessing he walks into the studio just before 6, does no more than 7-10 minutes prep and then the show starts at around 6:07 AM. Any other prepping that needs to get done gets done during the show. There is absolutely no traffic at that time in the morning and he lives close to the studio meaning he could probably leave his condo/apartment at 5:45 AM. I challenge his 4:00 AM wake up time...I am just saying...

    Howard hasn't done a topical show is years.
    First half ass Tracy Morgan mention at 9:30am.
    You can listen to a 6am hour and not be sure the show is live.
    :jj:

    Stern staff gets fucked.
    their commute to work gets worse
    A huge difference in traffic has them leaving their homes at the same time.

    They should've moved it to 9am years ago. Just another way no one there knows how to keep up with the times. Starting at 6am is so 90's

    Considering the fact that most of Howard's guests haven't been relevant in years and his jokes seem to come from rejected jokes for a Johnny Carson monolog in 1967, I have a hard time telling if I am listening to a live show or a show a Worst of segment from five years ago. So really does it matter if the show starts an hour later and people have to listen to a replay of tired rehashed and weak moments of the show until they get live tired rehashed and weak moments of the show at 7 AM?

    Maybe the charity winners complained about getting up so early to sit in on the news?

    You know what's funny. The standard line out of the Stern staff these days is that "Howard is the great, most kind, sweetest guy in the world". Then why are the staff so concerned about avoiding Howard if he is cranky? Does he forget to say thank you when he is cranky or something?

    More Howard image shaping bullshit. He is Mother Teresa when he is pandering to the AGT crowd. He is an ogre when it is "entertaining" for the show.

    A 6am start mattered when he was focused on entertaining the peasants in their cars and was burdened by regular ratings.

    "Robin, they tell me that most of our 12 million listeners don't tune in until after 7 AM."

    I started listening when i was 8 yrs old. I never thought i could hate Howard but my disgust grows stronger daily. He's just a lazy unfunny old queen bubby with birthing hips droopy tits and 165 cats.


    Who woulda thought Imus would ever be a more likable figure.
