    For a little while now, Howard has gotten into the practice of going to commercial with a phony phone call. That means, he intros the call, starts playing it then as soon as its over, nothing, just right into the break. So instead of laughing, commenting and making a bit out of it, they are just relegating many calls to show bumpers now.

    If you're a regular listener, it sounds really really out of place.

    Poor Richard and Sal. I hope they have a lot off off air work because they're all but gone from on air.

    Don't know if the Horse can tolerate Wiggy for too long around the house. Eventually she will probably say, "You go, but the money stays."

    Richard & Sal are job hunting make no mistake about it.

    I'm actually surprised Marci even allows them to still work for the show(at least on paper).

    There was such pain in Artie's voice as he admitted that Howard has completely sold out and is a total starfucker. I can only image how Sal feels who stuck around to the bitter end.

    Pretty sure they do year-to-year like what Artie did. Only reason Marci didn't have them cut is they're both too cheap and productive even if they are remnants of the un-evolved times.

    I just listened to a Youtube compilation of Richard and Sal's phony phone calls over the last few days. It was 4.5 hours long and most of the calls had the commentary by the gang, Artie and even George Takei on a few. It was fucking hilarious, those guys did some phenomenal work over the years and having the gang's commentary to make a bit out of it just elevated the humor that much higher. Gunky really is toast if that's how he introduces the new prank calls, but I'm sure they're fucking lame anyways. I doubt Marci Turk would allow Richard or Sal to call a Chinese woman, who hosts a Painting show on public access, a cunt.

    Could be.

    They got a lot of people working there these days. Lots of bodies for very little show.

    I don't remember the last time I heard a new call from Sal or Richard. Almost all of them are from that new douche.

    I'm actually SHOCKED that those guys are still there.

    I would have thought Howard looks down on them as too low brow for him. And of course, far too edgy for the queen of all sellouts.

    I think his contract ends December 31. But they will be on vacation long before that.

    They work for nothing and give him content or at least are supposed to.

    I don't think either one of them cracks $50 k a year. Richard did a crank call to a Royals sports show today using his dad's vm that was funny

    Dunigan gives Howard lots of free bits none of which are funny. As recent as 3 years ago Howard would have rejected all of Dunigan's bits and chewed him out on air for even attempting to get them on now he plays the shit constant to kill time on his show so he can go run off to Cabo with Jimmy and Molly

    Seriously - how many regular listeners do you think there are here?
    I mean not folks like me who still listen to clips from the glory days but folks who listen daily to the shit show it has become.

    Someone should create a poll.
    I would but I'm not good with numbers.
