I liked this short article about Howard's first stint in Chicago which mentioned two of his favorite things. The show wasn't doing too well and the station found a way to pull the plug on it. He ended up settling the case before it went to trial, and hopefully for Stern he was able to at least recoup enough cash to cover his legal fees. http://articles.chicagotribune.com/...1_listeners-shock-jock-howard-stern-drivetime "August 24, 1993 A bit miffed: New York's shock jock Howard Stern, abruptly axed by WLUP-AM, told listeners of his syndicated program Monday morning that "a massive lawsuit" over the Loop's action was in the offing. The station's explanation that it was reacting to FCC concern over his program's allegedly indecent content was "a load of bunk," he told listeners. Responding to a caller from Cleveland, Stern said WLUP had broken a promise to keep the show on the air at least two to three years to allow its audience to build slowly. Meanwhile, listeners to WLUP-AM during Monday's drivetime heard Danny Bonaduce, who will be on all week and maybe longer."
