    I forgot how funny the show could be. However, I forgot how horrible robin is. She shoehorns her unfunny self into every conversation. Stepping on Billy West when he is being hysterical and just interjecting non-sequesters into everything. Completely fucken annoying on every level. I just don't understand what Howard ever saw in her except that she is a black female which gave him a license to make fun of the bleaks. She drags down what once was a very funny show.

    In the reruns, have they edited out all the callers? All the callers that user to speak the truth, win video game consoles, play games like "the homeless game"?

    They should just play old shows on 101. Start with this date in 19-- and play five shows a day non stop. That'd be cheap and easy.

    I've been listening to 91-92 shows. I haven't heard Billy West yet.
    Billy was a part time in his early years on the show

    Should have done that even before he was officially live on Sirius. It would have been beyond easy.

    I guess his notebook of ideas was missing that page.

    I've had a lot of fun listening this week. Robin going on about how Sully wasn't a hero is the biggest example of what wackadoo she really is.

    less than 0.0 chance Howard would ever air old shows.
    the old shows are jam packed with mockery of todays Howard.

    Early 90's long before Robin wrote her book the stern show mocked a handful of celebrities that claimed childhood molestation. Robin didn't shy away from the fun. She was the instigator accusing them of just trying to sell books.

    You have answered your own question. The only real job Robin ever had on the HSS was to sit there and politely chuckle while Howard et al., told nlgger jokes for 30 years. She gave him the license and requisite political cover necessary to deliver this brand of racist and misogynist humor on a daily basis to his core blue collar audience in a way that no other radio deejay could match. And it propelled him to the top.

    It's kind of ironic, really. Howard sucks his own dick in so many ways, claiming to have innovated so many things in the radio industry. Yet we all know that 99% of these supposed "I invented that, Robin" innovations are complete bullshit. Then you consider the one way in which he truly was a pioneer - i.e. coming up with the idea of employing a 'house negro' who shared his contempt for blacks - and you realize that this one true example of actual inspiration is something that he can't take credit for, because to acknowledge it would be to reveal it for the scam that it's always been. Plus the formula for Howard maximizing his marble intake has since changed 180 degrees. Openly ridiculing and humiliating blacks and gays has given way to putting on the facade of obsequiously pandering to them.

    There is always hope for Howard to die quickly. Do you think Beth or his daughters would be all that concerned with not cutting some deal to sell his old stuff?

    Everyone needs to pray for a limo wreck out in the Hamptons.
