before howard, pornography was relegated to adult bookstores and sleazy videos. we can thank howard for being the one person to start making it go mainstream....he was the first DJ to have naked women in studio who danced, madeout and took sybian rides. no one before him did this kind of show and while i'm not a prude, if anyone is lurking here who might tend to sympathize with the "new, more PG rated howard i want to remind them that in the past he's exploited mentally disturbed men and women. he's exploited physically disabled people also. he has done everything to exploit insecure young women "with issues" into talking about anal sex and when they lost their virginity (all the while prodding them into taking off their clothes. howard has been at the forefront of the coarsening of our society and while i used to be an avid fan, i think i've had enough of his phoniness.
