    I actually still listen to the show just because I drive for a living, but I wanted to crack up after about the 7th time Howard mentioned a SMokey "fact" that Jason or Will researched and Smokey said "no Howard thats not accurate, not sure why that rumor is out there". I actually love Jason and Will and they normally do great research but this was just embarrassing! I can only imagine how badly they got their assholes chewed out after the show!!! It got so uncomfortable that even Robin tried to make light of it by saying sarcastically "hahaha who did these notes Howard?" with her fake chuckle! A really low point in show history

    wait wait wait.... stop the clock.... Are you telling me that the questions Howard asks aren't his own? He has someone else write the questions? But he says that he is the best interviewer ever..... I'm crushed.:cuss:

    Right there.
    That is where you lost all credibility.

    The "world's greatest interviewer" is nothing more than a guy who says "I heard/read that (enter random internet rumour here).

    It's sad really

    Jason and Will would not get their assholes chewed out after the show. Howard is too busy leaving the building as fast as he can.

    Just got to the part where Wiggy asks if Smokey uses a teleprompter to remember lyrics HE WROTE.

    Issue 1219 of Rolling Stone 2014 has a Smokey interview breaking down all the same songs. Almost reads like a transcript of Howards interview

    :bigthinkhmmmmmmmm,,,,didn't I post this today????? That was the worst interview imo......Howard's interviews are more like therapy sessions with him self-projecting his own misery and unhappy childhood. I wrote that EVERYTHING he said to Smokey was in fact NOt TRUE and he corrected him...at one point Howard or RObin said he read it in some article ?? You should have quoted me, I asked who did the research? will or Jason....Howard took a quick "pee break" ....but u know it was to go CRAZY on Will or Jason for giving him wrong info....:giggle:

    as far as Robin goes......she's sooo phony....and interrupts every second with her comments and stupid questions that she FORGETS or loses her thought?? Howard should give HER an Interview HOUR !!!!!
    I guess I should pitch this idea......Have Robin take an hour Interview with a guest...give Howard a break......and us.



    peace & love

    their research involves printing out wikipedia and creating questions from that. Greatest interviewer ever!

    havent listened in years. but i think he can still be a great interviewer if he wants, but he just doesnt care.
    one of the reasons i stopped listening was a few guests i loved were on, and howard wouldnt even listen to their answers or let them answer.

    ex. paul McC was revealing something that he never answered before ever, it was fascinating,. then howard interrupts and asks a dumb Q that hes answered 1000s of times.

    he just doesnt care, i dont know why yall do

    Lots of cringe-worthy moments in that interview, from all the inaccuracies in Howard's questions to Robin calling Smokey "Stevie," then stammering and struggling to try and remember his name. (Howard had to jump in with, "Smokey!" then told Robin she was crazy.)

    Once Howard gets to his room to stare at the wall, he ruminates on the interview, gets mad, does a little painting, then hits Muldred to send Sarge Booey "a note" to handle this issue.

    ...in 2008. Today, it's forgotten as soon as his Varvatos hit the hallway to his elevator.

    I dont remember Robin calling him Stevie, but will listen again...I just love the awkwardness of the interview.......I am sure Smokey was dissapointed too....he had met Howard in a airport years ago and told him he was a huge fan.

    The same guy who doesn't like the pre-interview when he goes on Letterman has others write the questions for him? The irony.....

    To be fair, this is the height of fantasy football season.
