    From MarksFriggin'

    Howard took a call from Tommy in Malden who asked if he saw the guys from Led Zeppelin on Letterman last night. Howard said he DVR'd it but hasn't seen it yet. Tommy said those guys are looking pretty old. Howard said some of these guys don't age very well. He said Steve Perry from Aerosmith is aging well but Jimmy Page and Robert Plant aren't aging well. Howard said if they made a deal with the devil the deal must be running out. Howard said they resemble nothing of the pretty boys they were. Howard said that Jimmy used tot be a rock god and Plant used to have his hair flowing but now you think you're visiting middle earth when you see them.

    Howard said that all of these guys like Neil Young and Pete Townshend don't do his show. He said he goes nuts when he sees them on Letterman and Jon Stewart's show. Howard said it's a non-interview. He said he hasn't seen Letterman but he's sure there was no substance. Howard said he knows Dave just got the Kennedy Center Honors but he should get it. Howard said he actually asks questions. Howard said he is a rock DJ and he knows rock information. Howard said when he sees these guys on the other shows it's frustrating to him. Howard said if he could get a hold of Led Zeppelin he could do a great interview. Gary said they were out promoting and they tried to get them on the show. He said they tried to get Pete Townshend on the show. Howard said Pete hates him. He said that he asked about the internet and the boys and he walked out of the interview. Howard said these motherfuckers...they were his heroes.

    Howard said he blames the publicists. Howard said they have 22 million listeners and they have 60-70 percent of that number listening to his channels. Howard said if you put all of the late night guys ratings together they still have more listeners there on his channels. Howard said Adrienne Curry comes on the show and she ends up the number one Google search. Gary said he gets the line ''He's not doing radio'' from the publicists. Howard said that you go where you can sell product. Howard said he goes on Letterman and he barely mentions the product he's selling. Howard said they come on this show to sell product. Gary said Kid Rock sold a lot of records after he was on Howard's show. Howard said of course he did.

    Howard said Slash was on the show and they got a call from his publicist who said that they spent too much time talking about Guns N' Roses. Howard said that Slash called the show a few days later and he was sorry he said anything because he had the fans coming up to him and talking about how great the interview was. Howard said he was so glad to hear that. Howard said Billy Corgan came in and said that he was responsible for boosting the sales of his album.

    Gary said the publicists are afraid of the show. He said he tried to get Mark Knopfler on the show. Howard said he's glad he didn't get him on the show. Howard said no one gives a fuck about him. Gary said Mark didn't do anything wrong in this story. It was 1987. Gary said he called the publicists and the publicist said he didn't want to do the show. Gary said he went to another show he was on and Mark said he wanted to be on the show. He said the publicist was afraid to ask Mark if he wanted to do the show. Howard said the publicists want him when they have some shitty artist that no one knows. Howard said Mark is a great guitar player. Howard told Gary to check with him before booking him. Gary said that was in 1987.

    Howard said he saw a picture of the guys from Led Zeppelin on Letterman and they look like his grandparents. Howard said these late night shows are hurting. Howard was trying to explain why that is but Tommy interrupted and threw out Lloyd Braun's name. Howard said people are annoyed with him. He said he gets the email from the fans about him.

    Howard said they asked in a survey which of the late night guys make them laugh and one of the answers was ''None'' and that was a tie for second place after Jay Leno.

    Howard said whatever Led Zeppelin was trying to sell on Letterman won't sell. He said these guys do Letterman, the Today Show and The Daily Show and they think they'll sell. Howard said they wonder why they're not selling. He said they're lazy mother fuckers and they don't go on shows like his to sell things. Howard said that they used to work their asses off to sell but not anymore.

    Howard said he was going to get to Jon Leiberman but he's gone already. Howard played a Baba Booey song parody for Gary after mentioning the Mark Knopfler thing again. Gary said Howard wanted the guy on the show. Howard said he's just teasing him.

    Here's the precise moment where I stopped reading. As if someone suddenly flashed a picture of feces covered in maggots.

    I heard his rant and was embarrassed for him. It sounded like a lot of begging to be considered relevant by lying about having "clout". Not with a bang, but a whimper...

    Exactly. To hear him attempt to talk ANYONE into the idea that he's cutting edge and relevant, including HIMSELF, is pretty pathetic. :facepalm:

    I think Howard is finally starting to realize he is no longer relevant like he was in the 80-90's and early 2000's, he can spout his inflated numbers all he wants, but the publicists know he has a smaller and smaller audience, and no amount of begging by Baba Booey is going to help!

    I hope that's not just a typo on Mark's part.

    "Howard said he blames the publicists. Howard said they have 22 million listeners and they have 60-70 percent of that number listening to his channels."

    That's funnier than any of Howard's "math bits" or Sal's phony ones for that matter

    Roughly half of those are XM subscribers, few of whom have signe on to best of sirius. Also alot of the sirius subscribers got sirius with their new cars, not howard. Hell, I'm not even sure if Stern is the most listened to show on the channels at this point, particularly his new shows. One of my friends who has sirius and likes stern listens mostly to the old ones

    That bit of math is the equivalent of Stern stating back in the mid 2000's that he's the number one morning show in the country, and since there are 300+ million people he probably has close to 150 million listeners.

    If Stern still pulled the numbers he claims, he would still be getting the same high profile guests he used to pull

    I'd like Howard to prove that he has the listener ship that he has. Hard numbers from Sirius are available, prove us wrong, howie.

    i highly doubt that Howard gets 1 listener for every $1 Sirius pays him on an annual basis. 60% of 22,000,000 listeners? Nobody believes that.

    This is the stuff that I love, this is the material that keeps me coming to the Saloon everyday.

    This man can not be this delusional! He can not honestly believe he gets more listeners than all late night talk shows combined!

    My head is spinning at his arrogance. He is saying other talk shows are lazy?! Really?! Did he not see the lack of ratings from agt? What about that calendar he did last year, no new one this year, why not?

    I can go on and on...rant over.

    I can't think of one band that Howard "discovered", or promoted that did anything. According to Howard, Enuff Z'nuff were going to be the next Beatles. And let's not forget that Mega-Group from the 90's Hum.

    Howard might've been a "Rock DJ" but he's clueless when it comes to music. How can you be "into music" and not be able to recite the lyrics to one song?
