    In light of how shitty the Howard Stern Show is these days, I find myself nostalgic for the days when Jackie was on the show. Whether it was his writing or his ability to serve as the inspiration for one of Howard's rants, Jackie had a profound influence on the show during what I consider to be its height of creativity and humor.

    So post your favorite Jackie moments here or mention why you loved Jackie and what you thought he brought to the show.

    Jackie is a terrible standup comic. But his role on the show was crucial. He served as a bullshit detector and ball buster so Howard could not be a phony or kid himself like he does today about stuff w/o getting his balls busted.

    Today it's butt kissers living in fear. Even Fred sounds like a yes-man. The dynamic is damaged. Jackie had an important role. I see why he overvalued his services. It wasn't the same w/o him and he knew it. Howard didn't fuck up letting him leave w/o demanding they pay him more. But he did fuck up in ranting so bitterly about Jackie on air that he can't reverse himself and have him back w/o looking like a fool.

    jackie was fearless. if he was still part of the HSS he would call howard out on his hypocrisies.
    i can't begin to describe how important he was to the show....it was never the same once he left.
