    Today Colin Quinn was telling a story about comedian Ken Ober and mentioned he had died a few years ago. Howard was shocked and asked several questions about his death:

    Colin Quinn Visits. 06/10/15. 8:00am
    Colin said he was in Daytona Beach with Sam and Ken Ober. He said Ken died. Howard said he didn't know that. Colin said that Ken had called that week and it seemed like he knew he was going to die. Howard asked if he committed suicide. Colin said that he died from a heart attack and maybe because of the medication he was taking. He said he may have abused that medication.

    Thought I remembered Ken's death had been mentioned on the show previously, found 3 separate occasions when it was discussed:

    Colin Quinn Visits. 06/24/10. 9:10am
    Howard asked Colin about Ken Ober's death. He asked if he got sad over that. He said they stayed in touch so he felt horrible. Colin said they had a thing in L.A. for him and a thing in Connecticut with his family that he went to.
    Howard said Ken was a young guy. Colin said that he was a funny guy too. Colin said they all got up and told funny stories about Ken at the funeral. Howard said he doesn't want anyone laughing at his funeral so don't invite Colin.

    Howard asked Colin to tell him about what he said at Ken Ober's funeral.
    Colin said he told some stories about working on Remote Control and how big that was. He said he told a story about some stuff that happened with them there.

    Robin's News. 11/17/09. 10:00am
    Robin mentioned that Ken Ober died. She said he was the host of MTV's ''Remote Control'' and he was only 52 years old. Howard said he thinks he was on the show. Robin said they did interview him. Artie said he just spoke to him not long ago. Robin said he was a producer for a few shows like Colin Quinn's ''Tough Crowd'' and ''The New Adventures of Old Christine.'' Robin said that they thought it was a hoax at first but it turns out he really is dead.

    Robin's News. 01/04/10. 10:05am
    Robin read about some of the people who died in 2009. She read a list of names of people over some sad piano music. She read about David Carradine, Danny Gans, Paul Harvey, Don Hewitt, John Hughes, Jack Kemp, Ted Kennedy, Karl Malden, Al Martino, Steve McNair, Robert McNamera, Ricardo Montalban, Blue Iris, Brittany Murphy, Ken Ober, Les Paul, Natasha Richardson, Oral Roberts, Soupy Sales, Eunice Kennedy Shriver, Ron Silver, Gale Storm, Mary Allen Travers, Jett Travolta, John Opdyke, and James Whitmore.

    Not sure that it's Alzheimer's or just really poor listening skills. I don't think he even listens to Robin's news now and just wants her to get on with it and finish. He's really no better when interviewing as well. Instead of listening to the guest's answer and asking a follow-up question, he just sticks to the script and plows ahead.

    Ken Ober seemed like a fun guy. Remote Control was awesome. Sandler was even good on it. And Kari - fuck yeah.

    Somehow Chris Hardwick, the worst host ever, is the only one with a career.

    Carly Simon was on some show recently and revealed only a couple people in the world know the identity of the person she sings about in the song Your So Vain. She said Howard Stern was one of them. Years ago when this was brought up on the show Howard said she told him who the song was about but he can't remember who she said. You'd think you might remember that one. Now if it was cock size or net worth, Howard has a photographic memory with those details.

    Sorry, but unless the story has the name Howard Stern in it, he could care freaking less.

    It's all about fuckface and no one else...... including the vapid bitch.

    It's not memory issues with Howard, he never heard it in the first place because he's always interrupting the interviewees and trying to get out the next question before they can finish their thought. How many times has a guest asked Howard to "let them finish"?

    At first I thought it was poor listening skills but on the 06/24/10 show (see above) Howard brought up the subject of Ken Ober's death and asked questions about the funeral. That would indicate Howard was very much aware Ken had died but somehow completely forgot about it in the last 5 years.

    He tunes you out when he's not interested. Its a survival mechanism he developed after spending like two days with Beth.
