    I didn't start listening until early 2000's. Telling a girl to take her top off was a big deal? :dontknow: They don't even do that anymore. Satellite years are AGT and kittens.

    At least he had stories. I hear Jackie era tapes. Howchie's voice was much higher. All they talk about is how cheap Jackie is. blah blah blah

    The only thing hardcore about it was being on KROCK.

    Howard would have you believe that his voice was high-pitched because he was anxious about talking on the radio. That's his go-to line when his old (real) voice comes up. He doesn't address the vocal coaching and crazy settings they put on his microphone to make him sound, as Billy West once said about George Takei, like his balls rattle when he speaks.

    That kitten episode, ugh...pretty much all of my co-workers only Stern experience was when he was on E! and/or his reputation back in the day (we are all in our 20s and early 30s by the way). At a meeting a bit ago, somehow Stern came up and I said the show is BORING now, and they couldn't believe it. Then I told them about the kitten episode from earlier that week...and then they understood....

    howard helped to bring porn and stripping into the mainstream. he "normalized" the damaged, unfortunate young women who fall into that life and maybe even encouraged other damaged young women to go into those fields.

    Artie was really only annoying his last year or so on the show when he was so hooked on Heroin that he didn't know when to shut up and told the same stories over and over again. Before that, he was great on the show.

    Jackie was more of a writer than an on air personality. When he was writing stuff for Billy, the show was at its best. Jackie was easily the best writer the show ever had. He was a so-so on the air personality though.

    The funny thing is Howard recently took pity on Jenna Jameson and other porn stars who are fucked up because they were sexually abused, but back in the day his favorite go to question for strippers and porn stars was asking them if they were molested as children or teens and acting like it was hot if they were.

    Vocal coaching my ass.

    He got a nose job and (shock) the nose job did exactly what he feared it would do: altered his voice permanently.

    Only to Stern-y Dukes delight it made him sound like his balls finally dropped. Add the Darth Vader compression and boom, you got modern Howch.

    That being said he still sounds like his mother 75% of the time.

    I brought this up the other day, but I thought the bit they did in 2002 where they brought out the PETA chicks protesting downstairs up and had them get naked and take their tops off, or KC would hold a lobster out of its water tank until they conceded, or Howard started raising a hammer to a live turtle's shell and lowering it slightly was pretty "shocking" and "edgy" to your average alley cat.

    Flushing Mary Carey's head in a toilet repeatedly for getting trivia questions was "shocking" in a way, I dunno, that's hardcore sadist pornography where I come from, I get out my best David Carradine ballgag when I smack it to that shit. Happened multiple times in 2002 & 2003.

    Letting the God Hates Fags family spout their vendetta during HowieWeird whatever they called it Squares is edgy for some people, I guess.

    Bologna at a chicks ass, pretty decent.

    "It's Just Wrong" ehh, starting to evolve there Howch.

    But in terms of the satellite years? The Rich Cronin interview was I guess shocking for the teenybopper chicks that didn't realize whoever orchestrated the whole thing was a goddamn pedophile, that's about it.

    I believe Stern is largely responsible for the mass acceptance of lesbians now.

    Well, we could have had extra years of what the show has been like with him gone.
    Speaking for myself?

    I'd have loved to have had him in the studio when that Gaga cunt started her caterwauling... :hhh:

    He used to ask women, no matter how famous, how often they masturbate. Then he would ask everyone, no matter how famous, at what age they lost their cherry- and things of this nature- you understand, now- uhhhh......ply me with Miller Lite and I shall regale you with more.
