    Its fun how Howard conned Sirius into paying for a Tapes Team. Howard used the tape team to digitize all tapes.
    But most time is put into censorship. Just a single show contains up to 30 edits!

    The latest Master tape theater (original air date 2005 05 25) From original poster HamHands

    I ran the Master tape theatre broadcast of 2005-05-25 alongside the original radio
    broadcast, to edit in the higher quality Sirius audio but keep all the original show audio. I found
    they are doing a shitload of censorship of the shows.


    They not only cut out mentions of stuff coming up and plugs, and cut out about
    five minutes of Tim Robbins discussing his upcoming movie, but also diced up a tv show
    clip where they were discussing that Beth O is only famous because of Howard, cut out
    a hung over Artie discussion, cut out that it was a caller's idea to have a wive's calendar,
    and cut out Howard dissing marriage. The guys putting the MTT shows out are hitting the
    button on about anything that might put Howard in a bad light. Ridiculous.


    They are probably doing this on all MTT shows, I did the same thing to the 9-11 rebroadcast
    and caught them where they made twelve different cuts of Howard and others saying
    "insensitive" things.


    Here's the times of what they cut out:


    00:38-00:44 - Howard: "good to see you, and welcome to a Wednesday, a rainy wednesday in New York"
    05:00-05:02 - Robin: "and that's going to be on ABC, I was going to talk to you about that"
    18:22-18:25 - Caller: "and I mean it was a hundred times better, it was a big hit on Spike TV"
    59:41-1:01:06 - Howard talking over Alanis Ironic - "It's being free of your marriage but giving
    away all your money. I should write a new version." and more talking over song.
    1:03:03-1:03:05 - Cut out mention of "tomorrow on the show"
    1:13:00-1:13:01 - Howard: "I gotta practice for tomorrow"
    1:13:04-1:13:06 - Howard: "Chris Rock will be by tomorrow too"
    1:37:10-1:37:15 - TV show clip: "now the question is, did anybody know about Beth O before she
    became Howard Stern's girlfriend?"
    1:37:37-1:37:46 - TV show clip: "...It's a delicate situation, because you definitely wanna know about Howard,
    but you're kinda like, so..."
    1:38:29-1:38:34 - Howard: "and she's the first one to admit the only reason she's on there is because she's
    my girlfriend, it's not like she's..."
    1:38:44-1:38:53 - Howard: "and she said, I know the only reason I'm being asked" Robin: "Why don't they say
    well she knows what the deal is, so she answers the questions about Howard when they come up."
    1:48:57-1:49:09 - Howard (reading letter): "What's up with Artie's voice, it sounds rough? Is he hung over, or is it
    all the cigarettes he smokes?" Robin: "What is that, Artie?" Artie: "What'ya talkin' about?" Robin: "Ya been
    a little rough lately?" Artie: "Noo, I talk like I always talk"
    1:56:26-1:56:29 - Howard: "there he is, that's the guy, Tim Robbins, right there." Robin: "Hello, how are ya?"
    2:03:05-2:03:18 - Howard (about relationships): "I always just go, if there's a problem, I'm outta here."
    Robin: "Well, see, that's why you can't have relationships" Tim Robbins: "Well that's the way I was before I
    had children, then I was..." Howard: "I had children, and I stayed that way."
    2:08:01-2:10:18 - (complete discussion of Tim Robbins play cut out)
    2:13:02-2:13:20 - (cut out discussion of Tim Robbins film opening)
    2:18:02-2:20:26 - (More discussion of "embedded live" film cut out)
    2:21:07-2:21:14 - Howard: "I'm gonna kick Lloyd Braun's ass, whatever his name is, Lloyd Grove. Not Lloyd, I like
    Lloyd Braun. Lloyd Grove..aa". "Embedded Live, get it at Netflix".
    2:22:19-2:21:19 - (cut mention of Tim Robbin's Chris Matthew's appearance later that day)
    2:22:32-2:22:38 - Howard: "I called over there the other day. Havoc productions. I went, OOO, Havoc Productions!"
    Robin: "Now are there a bunch of people over there?"
    2:22:47-2:23:06 - Howard: "When you're on Chris Matthews tonight, do the Vader voice...Tim Robbins play Embedded Live
    is available on DVD" .....etc
    2:56:41-2:56:57 - Caller: "Listen up man, you gotta do a calendar, with all the wives, Mary, Beth, and Mrs Norris, and
    as
    a bonus, Mr X, you'll sell millions of these things..."
    2:58:53-2:59:09 - Robin: "By the way, has Ronnie sold that car?" Howard: "I don't know, you can go to howardslimo.com
    if you wanna bid on Ronnie's limo up on ebay, I know he's involved in that"

    I understand that they have to edit the show for time, but they must have a list of things to cut first.

    Plugs
    websites
    tomorrow's show
    anything negative about Beth
    Artie's substance abuse

    Now that we are aware of this, do you think Howard has full oversite of the edits, or has he just given "the tapes team" a template of the types of things to edit? Would be interesting to know.

    If Howard keeps the team working long enough he can pretend these things never happened...

    Fighting with Rosie O'Donnel or any other celeb he ass kisses now.
    His first marriage...he'll get the tapes team working on erasing any copy of Private Parts the movie as well.
    Jackie being on the show.
    Artie being on the show and him ignoring the signs of drug abuse.
    Stuttering John being on the show.
    Any mention of him never wanting to get married again.
    Any negative mention of Beth.
    Any advertiser that is no longer lining his pockets with marbles.
    All mentions of Gays in a joking or negative manner.
    Him talking about plastic sugery or is hair.

    no wonder why Howard is at the therapist 2 times a week...the guy hates himself.

    Thanks OP, good work, I really had no idea they were deceiving us that way. As someone said, if they cut out plugs or perhaps some marketing stuff, fair enough, but this is ridiculous.

    I really don't know, I'm sure he doesn't listen now. However, there may have been a time that he was involved enough to directly or indirectly control what is kept on and what is edited. Someone is making the decisions.

    They didn't start deleting Alison references/discussions until Sirius.

    Discussions about her were still included all the way up to the late 2005 Best of Sterns.

    In addition to the above stuff (Alison, plugs, etc.), I've also noticed at least one instance where they removed a brief rant about Regis and his flipper kid.

    They also removed a joke about Elizabeth Taylor having brain surgery.

    Also, Scott Einziger references are removed, but only sometimes.

    Why do you understand this? Howard has 2 channels, and if you cut out the old commercials, the segments last the same as they did when they originally aired. It's obvious Howard wants to rewrite history, because he realized he's the same ass-kisser he used to villify.

    This thread is too conspiracy based. Who gives a fuck? Listen to the original shows then. I have been re listening to every show since 2005 (bc of this wonderful 3 day work week) commerical and plug free and I can't say I miss it.
