    :cwl::cwl::cwl::cwl::cwl::cwl::cwl::cwl:

    From Dr Ivan over at SFN

    On the subject of Howard Stern Show swag and whether people want it...
    I am asked to create t-shirts or other merch daily by fans on Facebook (Stern groups),Twitter and other social media to fill the void that Howard himself has conjured. In short... not only do people want these things, they are more than happy to pay for them.

    Just because the populace of SFN/Dawgs has become disenchanted with The Howard Stern Show it has little to do with what most fans would or wouldn't buy. The people on these sites are not typical fans of the show (if at this point they are fans at all.) - The population here are less than a drop in the bucket compared to who is "out there" listening and what their desires are. Just because you happen to remember how great "The Billy West Years" were etc. (YES THEY WERE!) means little to those who came on late at K-Rock and learned of the show via Sirius/XM.

    Literally millions of people still love the show... they pay for it willingly. Like I said... they aren't here and frankly can't believe the negativity within these pages when they visit.

    He has 3K followers on Twitter. So two or three people (most likely Bobo and Mariann) keep hounding him to make Stern swag and he thinks he is now a social media celebrity.

    howard stern has lost all his audience

    he has less than 10,000 listeners to his live show which Sirius paid 80 million for

    He was stealing all of Drew Friedman's artwork until he was told to cease and desist.

    Exactly. How does he know what shows the millions of Sirius subscribers are listening to? Judging by that poll from earlier this year, the vast majority don't listen to Howard and the few who do wouldn't pay extra for the privilege.

    Howard's audience consists of a handful of retards (the callers, and the new watered-down whack pack), Jimmy Kimmoe- who obviously never heard the show in the 90's, and the new influx of fat housewives who "just love Howard on that talent show."

    This is the most bizarre thing. Look at the comments section of any story on Howard and Beth and all the positive posts are by women who love how much of animal lovers they are. I would love to see what pre-evolution Howard would have thought if he knew that at this point in his career his biggest fans beyond the nutjobs would be post-menopausal women.

    I have always enjoyed Ivan's contributions over at SFN and I won't pretend any differently now. On this subject, however, I'm afraid the Doc might still be living in 2004.

    It's been explained a million times. Back when radio was a full time job for Stern, what the Doc is saying may well have been true. The show came on five days a week and was famous for its battles with the FCC and rival DJs, busting the balls of other staff members, fucking mercilessly with a host of compelling wackpackers, skewering phony, PC politicians and exposing hypocritical Hollywood celebs. Now Howie takes off every two days out of three and we've been reduced to trophy wives, kittens and a modern day remake of The Gong Show. There are no millions any more.

    His fans in 2014: Old fuckers and hausfras who watch AGT. I dare for anyone to tell me that I'm wrong.

    Hey Ivan, I know you're lurking here and reading this- go fuck yourself, you bald faggot. Take your giant head out of Howie's asshole, and realize that SFN is dead because the "millions" of fans stopped going there because THE SHOW SUCKS and Howie is a sellout hypocrite, not because they remember the Billy West years and can't deal with the current show. And sycophants like Mutt and you, tried to shut down anyone who expressed those feelings.

    Howie does not have millions of paying fans and the numbers prove it.
    Now fuck off.

    That line is all kinds of funny that even infinite "reps" can't compensate!! And I'm not even usually into fat jokes. And thanks for the @ARM shout out, sir!
