Someone in another thread wondered why Matt and Trey have never been on. Isn't it obvious? Howard has never watched South Park...totally oblivious to the fact that several of their sound clips/drops are frequently used on his show. Howard's taste is up his ass! Amazed the staff talked him into having Seth MacFarlane on, as he has clearly never seen Family Guy or any of Seth's other work. He respects Larry David (because he makes $$$$) but has never seen Curb. Doubt he's seen many Seinfeld shows (Ben Stern is hipper than his son). Howie's tv choices lean towards The Bachelor, DTWS, AGT(before he was on it), American Idol, etc...) Music? He's not the Ramones fan he claims to be...early on (going back to NBC days), Joey was one of the few people who'd do his show (like the late Steve Rossi). He played their records at WRNW because Meg deemed them cool. Of course people said he looked like Joey...then Joey would sometimes come in or call in drunk...famous ans.machine msg...He liked the Ramones because they were good radio/tv...the famous Joey/Marky fight...when he got all four in studio and tried to make them argue...I'll bet he couldn't name five Ramones songs... Today he desparately tries to sound hip with guests like Tiesto...doesn't have a clue! Don't get me started on his taste in comedy...at least recently!
