    Since Mammary Lane allows the fans to pick their favorite moments it's interesting to see the selections so far this week. Very few star-fucking interviews, mostly seemingly spontaneous interactions with callers and staff (although we now know some were scripted), and nothing newer than January 2008 (when Howard had met all his Sirius incentive clauses and stopped putting in any effort). The Stern Show of today is completely different from what the fans prefer. The long drawn-out boring interviews he does almost every day are clearly meant to position Howard for his own TV show and get him some headlines. The interactions with callers and staff are obviously screened, pre-planned, and rehearsed. Robin and Howard dominate the conversations with their loony idiotic opinions and the show really suffers without a third person to balance them out. Most of the staff members who were talented and entertaining are long gone and the comedy element has been completely eliminated. Howard has said he doesn't care what the fans like, only what HE likes and he proves it every day.

    It's weird to hear Howard so opinionated. He was never really that funny but at least he took a side in conversation. Now he just sits silent through Robins news and stays neutral in every topic.

    Wasn't he initially pro Iraq war and then later on he was all anti war?

    He had to know the "fans" took offense to that, because months/years later he said "it's wrong to piss on your fans."

    Unlikely, since that would mean that Wiggy's crack staff would actually have to do some work, going through the archives looking for the clips. Most likely the staff picks the clips and then they read bogus letters requesting them. Radio, even pay radio, hasn't changed much since the Alan Freed payola scandal of the late 1950s. Lotsa fakes. Lotsa bits.

    Five minutes into this show from 2001 and I already laughed more than the last 5 years combined.

    I would be worried and sad if I was a radio personality and a best-of that I was claiming was based upon fan opinion
    happened and nothing within 5 years was requested. I would be really worried. But Howard gives no fucks.

    He's got his billion, you get yours.

    I'm guessing with Turk guidance Howard is being re-branded as the most amazing interviewer ever.

    Listen, the show has evolved. It is what it is.
    Look, I think you'll find you're in the minority on that.
    In other words the show has never been better. In fact it's phenomenal.
    What do you do for a living?

    Actually, one I sent in got played a couple of years ago (and my request was read) so I'm sure some are real. The fact that they differ so much from the staff "best of" picks supports that - almost all of the Best of 2013 (chosen by the staff) were interviews.

    With all due respect, why would anyone listen to mammary lane?

    I would agree that the show was better in the past but that does not mean that I will pay to re-listen to them which is what you are actually doing. Even if you did not hear the shows the first time around, they are dated. It is hard enough to listen to him live with his bullshit boring interviews that are mostly with people that have not been relevant in many years, and to hear him talk about "doodie" "underpants" and other infantile statements and words and AGT which I am proud to say, I have never seen one episode of.

    I know it is unclear as to whether Sirius can track what we listen to because they don't release ratings, but on the off chance that they know exactly what I am listening to I want to let them know that I do not accept mammary lane or the WUS as they are nothing but filler material.

    I've never understood this.

    They can put a satellite in the sky and beam a signal all over but people think just because they don't release ratings they don't have a way to know who's listening to what?

    they have metrics. absolutely they do. they just aren't going to release them for any reason. it benefits them ZERO

    Nuking Middle Eastern countries (regardless of whether or not they did anything wrong) was "pre-evolved" Howard's standard position.

    It played well to the White, middle-class, male demographic that helped build his empire. Nothing more.

    Howard has bent so much to the prevailing winds of fashion, I doubt that even he knows what he believes.
