    I am not complaining in any way at all. Benji has been extra quiet as of late. Can't even hear him laugh in the background, not that there is much laugh out loud moments any more.

    Almost sounds like it's Howard, Robin and Fred in studio only. Is Benji around or is he "around"?

    It's a very odd listening to the show lately. It's like there's something big going on and no one is talking about it. I'll just be happy in a month when this contract stuff is done with. I can't imagine the show will be as it is come January. I think something big is coming. I don't mean good or bad, I just don't see the show continuing on the path it's on.

    It can't. It has to be hemorrhaging listeners and revenue like crazy. Sirius can't afford the Howard product anymore and this new found cum-by-ya PC evolved show just simply sucks ass.

    With planted callers, prerecorded calls and bits, and Howard down to picking up on MFB and Bobo only. And let's not forget the lump and bobos wig now a daily way to burn up an hour. It's just fucking pathetic.

    If I was Sirius, I wouldn't re-sign Howard based on his allowance of letting Marci Turk take over and completely pussify it.

    I heard him laugh last week, I'm pretty sure.
    He's probably expensive. You can get a couple millennial clowns for his price.
    Getting things done!
