Howard, if you want to know how you f*cked up your show, listen to this era.

    I've been binge listening to the era of shows right before and after Jackie leaving (March/April 2001) and it's a perfect example of why Howard was once good and now blows.

    Some things which are sorely missed (and which made it good):
    - At the start of the show, and all through he show, crew come and go freely in and out of the studio and shoot-the-shit.
    - Not a lot of guests, but when they do have a guest:
    - The guests are fast and light. Some big names, a lot of small names. The show feels light on it's feet unlike currently where they overhype a "big" guest and the show slows to molasses speed while they focus a whole show around them.
    - Lots of callers -- positive and negative.
    - Lots of phoner guests

    Legendary bits in these short few weeks:
    - Cabby reveals his gay antics
    - KC goes on a trip with HP Eric
    - Robin can't come to grips with failing to recognize Howard's "Pollack" painting among 5 real ones. She goes ballistic (remember 'organized chaos'?).
    - Howard can't deal with his inner sanctum being revealed by Lyla Arcieri
    ...more that I'm sure I missed

    (And here are tons more to add to the list: http://www.dawgshed.com/threads/sit...e-occasional-lol-because.142223/#post-8892400)

    THIS was good radio. Lots of laughs. For those who say 'I can't believe I liked this guy', don't worry, you were right to like the show. Not anymore.

    Just as long as they aren't clapping every 10 seconds.

    If it isn't 1992-1995, it by definition cannot be classic.

    Case closed. Next matter.

    The Jackie & Billy years are better than all other years combined. That was truly the era of pulling your car over because you were laughing so hard.

    I heard this on sternthology the other day and became sad. What happened to howchie, this trouble maker, whose show i loved so much? I loved that he busted everyone's balls and had a healthy sense of humor about himself. He would never do this to any celebrity now, let alone a beatle. listen at 3:53

    There was a big change after Jackie left, for sure. Although the show still had a lot of great moments after he was gone, it wasn't the same.

    If you happened to be a STERN fan and you were also a GEEK, you might Google certain words, and find on the first page something related to You Tube.

    I can't PM you and I can't be too specific about linking to download sites. But if you open a Google search page and type in the obvious words from my post above, you will see a YouTube related link at about the 3rd from the top. Scroll thought the resulting giant list to find what you're looking for.
