    Howard has been on some sort of "Gay/lesbian/bi/transgendered apology tour" in recent months. Obviously he's trying to rehabilitate his image with those folks so he's not run off of TV by their powerful lobbying efforts.

    Why is it today (and in previous days recently) I'm still hearing old tapes where he's openly mocking gays (with emphasis on anal/doody/etc)? Songs like "If I went the gay way" are mostly innocuous but are obviously not done with any sort of "respect" for gays in mind.

    Is the tapes team passively stabbing at Howard, knowing he doesn't even bother to listen to or even review what goes on the air when he's not there?

    I have wondered about this. Wiggy clearly does not listen or care about his channels, but you would think Fuckwald would have somebody on point. Good question.

    not even fuckwald can get a meeting with the wig master.
    wiggy will only kill his own show. everyone sucking his aftermath will choke on it.

    Howard 101 is a mess aside from Scott Farrell's show, I hope at the very least he makes a few bucks.

    Ok, on today's repeat of a repeat, I heard him calling Sammy Hagar a jerk, Metallica assholes whose music sucks, and about half a dozen other things he'd cringe about today. Someone on the tapes team definitely seems to be fucking with his push for a new image.

    Any chance Sirius management has input into what gets selected and played?

    Perhaps Sirius is the one who controls "the tapes." It sure wouldn't surprise me if the legal wranglings between Stern, CBS, and Sirius somehow resulted in CBS giving Sirius the rights to edit/broadcast the tapes. Maybe Stern maintains some ownership (maybe he doesn't). I don't recall there ever being any explicit details released regarding how the tapes were turned over. All we know is that Sirius is allowed to broadcast them.

    Would they play the Rosie and Ellen stuff again? Have they played any of the stuff where Wiggy trashes the shit out of AGT? Maybe there is a line they know not to cross. Like a really good Troll.
