    I just can't get through anymore calling in???? WTF happened, this is fucking impossible now???? Is it simply because of DIRECTV exposure now the lines are jammed, do they take LESS calls? When the show first started last year I could get through on a whim (been on about 6x) with no problem and now I must have 300 consecutive speed redials without a ring at all various times and days of the week.

    I think HOWARD is easier to get through to now, I give the fuck up.:mad::scratch: Any thoughts from semi-regular callers here?

    I'm telling you JYanks, it's almost creepy how busy the lines are all of a sudden when I compare it to just 6 months ago. They also do alot of fluff segments that waste copious amounts of time that stymie caller potential. Don't get me started on those hideous Canavan twins or the unfunny juggernaut of a time suckage that is Mike Bochetti. Those two things my brain just shuts down.

    Thanks Rod, if YOU have trouble then i know it's legit my complaint. But even two weeks and beyond I found impossible, didn't you at least find it waaayyy more difficult since they finally went DIRECTV? Are you getting at least SOME busy signals like I do perpetually?

    No never really had busy signals but there have been times when it would just continuously ring and sometimes it would have a weird sounding ring.

    I rarely call, but when I was hoping to prank the Twins the other night it rang forever, finally on the 5th try Jack picked up and I blasted him with a Robert DeNiro soundboard. :jj:
    When I first pranked the Twins I got through like 6 times in a row.

    Maybe the twins are disconnecting the phone lines, because they are annoyed everyone calls up & says they don't like them!
    ha!

    No, don't get me wrong, I know he's a sweetheart as a person (and I've given him TONS of chances and listens) and stuff but I just don't think he translates to radio, but nothing's worse than the Cuntavan twins. I'm bummed by both Artie and Nick's judgement bringing them on board being that they'd be everything N&A would be against with reality show broad entitlement. I don't even think either are their type looks wise, certainly not mine. I'm more the petitte brunette type and I thought they were too????

    I pretty much gave up when the moron twins took over the phone lines. Will only needed 5 seconds to put me through once he knew i was kosher. Im not willing to wait for tweedledum and tweedledumber to figure it out.

    The Twins don't even answer the phones anymore, it's Jack from what I was told.
