    I don't know a lot of people in my real life who listen to THSS nowadays. Yes, there is this message board and the Facebook groups (with two totally different groupthink viewpoints (negative and positive, respectively)), but who knows when it comes to the Internet, where there is a "pile on" mentality on every single posting site ever created?

    So I judge "the state of the Stern Show" on a guy who works at the local hardware store I go to every few months. He had once asked me if I wanted to go on a field trip to Jeff the Drunk's trailer after a conversation about the show. When I mention the posting boards and such, he has no clue, so I think he's not affected by the chatter.

    He's a definite average Joe, and seems to have red eyes whenever I see him. Maybe he tokes a bit.

    I went in yesterday to get some hooks and rope (don't ask) and the topic of THHS came up. I asked him bluntly, "What do you think of the show now?"

    And he seemed totally crestfallen. He said something about Hanzi being censored and about the Yoko Ono "guru" (he didn't know her name was Marci Turk), and wondered what the heck was going on. Before his manager came to get him, I told him to listen to Artie Lange's recent podcasts; some were free on YouTube, I told him, thinking he couldn't afford the $7/month. He said he would. Now I may have to go back to buy a hammer or something to find out if he's still as loyal to THSS after listening to the Artie pods.

    Howard is totally abandoning working guys like that, who don't have much going on, and need a few laughs to get through their days.

    What is your barometer as to the state of THSS?

    Cab drivers. None of them listen anymore. Not one of them.
    Not on LI, not in NYC.

    Here in NY, just about everyone under the age of 55 I knew listened to the HSS. Now, no one I know listens to the Wig.

    At one time, all my friends listened to Howard and now, there's just one friend who occasionally flips it on.

    In his defense, he's in his car all day long so, I give him a pass.

    He's telling me that it's virtually un-listenable at this point.

    The most common reaction I get from anyone (including people who listened back in the K Rock days) when I mention Howard Stern is surprise that he is still on the radio.

    I'm just hooking up some lines in the basement for the tons of clothes my wife seems to hoard. There was some Shades of Grey type chick in the rope section of the store, though.
