I used to love the HSS and I still do in a way, depending on the guests and bits... But the increase of commercials (breaks and live) makes it almost impossible for me to listen anymore, I just can't take it anymore. On Wednesdays show, there was a 14 minutes commercial break (live comm. included). In 2006/2007, there were mostly under 10 minutes in 2 fucking hours. The live commercials during the news completely ruin the last quarter of the show for me. In addition to that, I sometimes believe Howard + producers of those commercials must think the listeners are retarded... Do they really think we don't realize, that during Howard does a live comm. for some fucking cookies, Gary comes strolling in to "report" how great and "fudgie" the cookies really are, is a fucking lame bit? i know, waah, waah, waah... but I had to get it out!
