    ...phones? Or is that a Stern Show exclusive? It's 2012 and they can't take a call on the air without it sounding like shit.

    half is a bit that howard uses when he is being bested, and half is sirius not giving a shit about his phone system and letting it fail constantly....does not matter only 1 out of 100 callers are real callers anyway....

    Cell phones sound crummy on the radio.

    the "no more bullshit" era means lots of fake staged dramas on the show.

    right. but the fact of the matter is, he doesnt care anything about the phones because he doesnt care anything about the show.
    i dont even think he was trying to do a funny bit. the concept is, the phones/sirius/tom/fcc is the reason my show sucks.
    ala, if the phones worked, my show woulda be great

    Why even bother taking live phone calls anymore. Just have people leave voice mails and pick out the "good" ones.

    The 5 minute delay software they use to make sure an embarrassing call doesn't get through probably fucks up the sound. If they didn't use something like that you'd be hearing calls asking Howard if he visits Dawg's saloon, which he is not going to tolerate. If that got out listeners would flock to see what it's all about and he'd have another SFN problem on his hands.

    You know how they give him $80 million per year as a production budget? It's an outrage that they want him to use that money to fix the phones. So, Howard waits until his own salaried guys can figure out how to fix them as opposed to calling someone in to do it. Cheaper that way.

    He would have a brain aneurysm if his tape machine broke. His whole show is just playing clips at this point . . .
