    What happened? I check out the listening thread and hear that Howard went on one of his narcissistic soapbox rants around the 6:00 hour. Someone want to fill me in?

    This must be it:


    From MarksFriggin


    Pinocchio Dave Complains About AGT. 04/25/12. 6:20am
    Howard took a call from this guy Dave who calls him Pinocchio. Howard said they had a beauty contest in there and the girls told him that Dave was uglier than him. Dave said it wouldn't happen today. Howard said he must have had a face transplant. Dave told Howard he's been working out and he looks better than him now. He said Howard looks like a giraffe these days on those TV promos. Howard asked what he does when he works out. Dave said he runs for an hour and a half on a treadmill.

    Dave asked Howard why he has to mention AGT every single fucking day. Howard said that Dave is one of these assholes who gets him worked up. Howard said he doesn't give a shit or a fuck about what he thinks. Howard said when he did his movie people told him not to talk about it. He said they did the same for the channel 9 show. Howard said he's not letting anyone set the agenda for the show. Howard said he doesn't care if he cancels his subscription. He said everyone can cancel if they want to. Dave just laughed through Howard's whole tirade. Howard said he doesn't care if he cancels. Dave said that everyone is going to cancel when they see AGT. Howard said he doesn't care. He said it doesn't matter to him anymore. Howard said he doesn't owe anything to his fans. He said his fans wouldn't listen if he sucked. He said they're there because he's good.


    Howard said that this America's Got Talent thing is something that no one could have predicted. Howard said they're going to hear plenty about AGT and they can suck his dick if they don't like it. Howard said it's insane to think you know more about radio than he does. Howard said it's an insane thought. Howard said there are people there who think they know more than him. He said it's just not the case. He said if you want to learn how to become a successful human being, don't come to him. If you want to know how to do radio then come to him.

    Well, he's part of Stern Show history. Didn't he and Howard compete to see who was better looking back in the late 90's? I'd kill to have tape of that.

    And he's right. We don't listen for exactly that reason.

    I wonder if the dinosaurs knew when their time was through? Howard WAS the greatest. But he can't keep that title when he hasn't done shit in years now as far as putting out a quality show.

    Howard - People still listen because they're conditioned to listen...not because the show is still good.

    He's the Tiger Woods of radio. When people ask Tiger about his game, he's never realistic with his response. It's always, "I'm close" as if he'll ever be back to what he once was and will ever be as dominant. Howard is no different. Whatever "it" is, Howard has lost it. Just like Tiger has lost his edge.

    The big difference in Howard comparing AGT to Private Parts, The Channel 9 show and other projects that he talked endlessly about is that they were all HIS PROJECTS!! AGT is just a show where he sits there and judges other people. He isn't writing it like he did his book (not that he wrote all of that). These were things he had a major hand in writing and creating. AGT is a show that existed before him, isn't going to change much with him and will exist after he gets tired of cashing a paycheck. For him to act like the criticism over AGT is the same as when people complained about him talking to much about Private Parts is delusional. AGT is not a howard stern production, it is an NBC production, featuring Howard as a talking head. There is no reason for him to blather on and on about something like this and is not interesting to the majority of his audience and he either can't or wont see that.

    God is he really still talking that much about this "AGT" crap? I am so embarrassed for him.... What a way to end a career.

    "WAS" being the operative word in that statement.
