Mike Walker Game was it a plug or Howards way of keeping out of the rag?

    I was asked this earlier today so I thought I'd give everyone a chance to chime in on why in hell the Mike Walker game was on for so long, and why did it vanish with thursdays?

    I think it has to be to keep his ass out of it. But if that were the case why is he still hands off? The bit certainly wasn't funny so that isn't why stern kept it going

    He probably has enough dirt on Walker now that he doesn't need to give him plugs any more.

    Hey Vash, you can find Mike Walker on Andy Dean on SiriusXM. He does a great segment. The times i have caught it Stern was never mentioned.

    Andy Dean is way to big and would probally ignore us but you should contact Mike Walker for a statement.

    Yup that was him.



    That's a great Idea, I'll write to walker and see if he'll tell me why.

    My understanding was it was a paid spot. I don't believe the theory that Stern was allowing him on every week just to stay out of rags.

    Remember Stern doesn't even get out of bed unless there's a financial angle and I think there was one here not immediately evident.

    I've often wondered if Mike Walker and the Enquirer caught Howard with the goods during his Private Parts filming cheat-a-thon. Then a deal was cut: Mike Walker Game/Enquirer plug once a week for 15 years (or some such thing) and we won't ruin the "Family Man in Real Life" image that the entire movie is predicated on... But this is probably just my over-active imagination.
