Sorry about the poor audio
Savage has a brother or something that is mentally retarded... can't blame him for not liking the pelican for exploiting Gary "the retard", Wendy, Beetle etc...
There is a special place in hell for someone who makes millions off the misfortune of others.
That special place must be fucking huge.
The Michael Weiner message board was fun.
That was Howard in the 90's . . .
Good older clips. He's on live right now. Although I disagree with much of his politics I gotta admit his show is usually entertaining, but a little slow tonight. Seems maybe he's mellowed a bit ('evolved"?) on his new network?

I used to listen to savage when he came to my city years ago. He definitely had his moments but I think in reality it's all shtick. I remember reading this article and wondering why he never talked about any of the weirder parts on his show, like swimming with ginsberg. wtf is up with that?
Michael Savageâ€™s long, strange trip
What about those who laugh..or used to laugh at those millionaires?
You're on a Stern forum. That either means you're a fan or a former fan. Howard made a career out of exploiting the misfortune of others. You were his audience. As were we all.
Guilty as charged. In my eyes though there was a different tone to it back in the 90's. Everyone on the show was somewhat retarded and didn't hide from it. There was affection for guys like Hank, Crackhead Bob, Bigfoot and Beetle. The forced whackpackers were when things changed along with Howard,Robin and Baba all of a sudden thinking they were above everyone. The contempt they developed for their audience is what turned people.
All of the ball busting kept everyone on the same plane, no sacred cows.
That's an interesting way to look at it. It's true, although the joke was always on the whack packers who came in, there was a time when Howard was just as likely to goof on Fred or even Robin.
I never had a problem with Howard's "exploitation" of the retarded or whatnot. Most Whack Packers were their because they wanted to be...often they were already fans. They weren't duped out of money and they usually got something out of the exchange. But I had girlfriends who'd disagree...no matter how good my arguments to justify it were.
I don't apologize for laughing along...but if there's a hell and Howard's destined to spend an eternity there for goofing on retards, midgets and gimps, we're going right there with him.
I like that you differentiated the real Whack Pack from the new crop of grifters and scammers. With them, it's like Howard's trying to exploit us. Asking listeners to pay to hear Ass Napkin Ed and Debbie the fake crazy Pet Lady to perform scripted bits that everybody can see right through.
Jew on Jew violence is never pretty.
Stern has never listened to 101.
If he did he'd be embarrassed.
Yesterday they played back to back to back tapes segamnts of Stern saying the most racist sexist homophobic(FUCKING FUNNY) things.
BTW I noticed several hard edits also.
I'm guessing there is an ever growing list of things that have to be trimmed from Sterns past.
Michael Alana Weiner might hate Howard, but Howard loves Weiner!
