    ...Melrose Larry is back on the show. I've heard him on air more in the last six months than I have in the last six years.

    They're really dredging the depths for safe callers now.

    Do you think he's been calling this whole time and they never picked up, or do you think they called him because the same 4 callers were getting stale and they knew he was safe too???? Hmmmmm?

    Eric the Midget' death has left a void in Stern content...

    I heard Angry Alice the other day... so you know they are scrambling
    It is just a matter of time before we hear Crack Head Bob again

    Remember when Howard used to take calls from people who hated him and he was up for the challenge? He'd use the nuttiest of them for show content. Now he has no defense for his show and doesn't want to deal with anyone calling him on any bullshit.

    Why take risky calls when Maryann can do Beth plugs every day?

    Howard can't handle the stress of real caller's who expose him for his lady like tendencies. It's costing too much in extra therapy sessions.

    ....and he might curse them out and use Non-PC words.

    He is mostly avoiding conflict, but will still call Amanda Peet a cunt.

    I haven't heard KOAB on the air since he made the statement about Ray Rice's wife having some of the blame for getting punched in the elevator. That conflicted with Howard's new PC woman-friendly theme and he cut off the conversation pretty quickly.

    I am sure there will be more calls from people like "Wendy, the slow adult"..."Illegal drug addict Bob"..."Fred, the man in need of a speech pathologist" and "Jeff the alcoholic". Howie is really missing guys like "Eric, the disabled actor in a wheelchair" and of course "Hank, the small man addicted to alcohol".

    Its time for Howie to find new wack packers to fill the void on his show. In his new "politically correct" world, I know Howie's options will be limited. Maybe he can find somebody with the name of "John, the kitten lover" or "Mary, the vegan"...they will be great additions to the show.

    He should be ashamed of himself. HE is such a thin skinned baby.
    Remember when the staff took IQ tests...everyone but Howie and Robin...God forbid theirs were lower then JDs..He is a weasel

    I dont listen to the show religiously anymore, but I tuned in for the Larry David interview and listened a little while afterward. I got the impression that Howard was trying to build Hanzi into ETM's role, complete with cutting him off with a song or sound clip and letting his paranoia shtick go on and on (as opposed to the past when he'd hang up on Hanzi in 2 seconds).

    Without a doubt, Eric left a void.

    I don't think Howie is a stupid guy....he's clearly smart. Which is why it's baffling that he doesn't just own things instead of hiding behind the shelter of his call screeners. Open the lines up, let the disenchanted blast you and try to prove you're not what they claim. Not only would people respect you more, it might actually make your show entertaining again, for a change.

    My thinking is that he knows we're right, and has no defense, so just avoid us and pretend.....

    This right here is his problem.

    Tommy from Malden called on Tue and Howard asked about being called out on twitter. Tommy said, yeah, about your PC stuff. And Howies now go-to defense? Just dejectedly say 'Yeah...that's right...' then change the subject. PUSSY! No defense...

    And I would bet money that he asked Tommy about it because of this site!

    He has to at least feign some sort of rebel attitude but ends up just crumbling.

    I heard they are considering changing Alice's name to Mildly Agitated Alice because they fear calling a black woman angry may be considered racist.
