Discussion in 'The Howard Stern Show' started by Jon Hein is God, Aug 15, 2012.
He also said he talks for four hours, that was just as lame!
Howard's genious, in my opinion, was that he knew how to edit the show while it was going on.
He was a brilliant self-editor.
He knew what the audience wanted to hear, and how much they wanted to hear of certain people.
He no longer has that editing ability.
Get off my thread!
I'm sure he's been feeling nothing but radios being turned off for the last 3 years.
SiriusXM agrees. I'm sure they beat Buchwald over the head with the loss in subscribers as often as possible.
The only feelings he is in touch with, is his feminine side...
Totally agree. I thought when they played the early tapes of the abysmal King Schmaltz Joke Hour (or whatever heinous name they called it), it showed the extent of Howard's writing talent, and he had not grown much beyond it. By comparison, he makes Jackie look like Oscar Wilde (and I think Jackie is a real hack as a comedian... though great as a shit disturber).
he still knows how, he just no longer cares
He doesn't want to be there and I agree, he doesn't give a fuck. He lost his "eye of the tiger" a long time ago.
This'll boost ratings !
There's nothing the kids watching love more than hearing an old man tell stories about radio...
Muhamad Ali and Howard Stern.... Created success by honing the rope a dope.
if he did, he'd STFU every so often and let a guest answer a fucking question that HOWARD HIMSELF just asked!
In his head if he moves the interview along faster, he can leave sooner. Why listen to what the guest has to say? Just move right on to the next question. I don't know why he has guests at all.
Howard may need to have Dr. Sarno re-tune his Spidey senses for him.....
He has to move the interview along to get to all of the other segments in the jammed packed show.
I think he became more of a "manager" during the 2000s. During the 80s and 90s, people would listen to the show to hear what wild thing Howard said next. His opinions were so raw and unfiltered, he would say things that no other person had the balls to say on the radio. He would talk about things so personal in his life, you felt you knew him.
When the 2000s started, Howard started being a little more like everyone else. He would keep a lot more secrets about his personal life. He talked less about his love life after his divorce( while he was going to clubs and banging chicks, he would say nothing about it on the air, in fact, he pretended he wasn't getting laid for months), he made more Hollywood friends, he started becoming softer. By that time, the show became less about Howard and more about wackpackers on the show( Beetlejuice, Elegant Elliot Offen, Eric the Midget), more about games on the show (Stump the Booey, Win Fred's Money, Anal Ring toss), and more high profile guests.
Beth came into the scene and Howard would talk about how perfect she was. It felt weird as a fan listening to that when you remember how he talked about his first wife. With his first wife, he would talk about the good, he would talk about the bad, and it felt like a real relationship that the average person could connect with. Beth was portrayed as this perfect beautiful angel who could do nothing wrong. It felt fake and turned a lot of people off.
Then Artie came into the show and became the "wild guy". We no longer waited to hear about what wild thing Howard would say next. Artie became the funny man on the show with the witty lines and Howard was just the straight man who managed all of this talent around him.
He said he can tell when radios are being turned off- he didn;t say that he cared though.
I wonder if he heard mine turn off? My subscription ran out two days ago.
