    I think we can all agree that we live in the post Howard era.
    Sure he is still gulping out a few words every now and again
    but to the extent he ever did, he has not mattered at all
    since he moved to satellite, and I think he only moved over
    because his show was tanking anyways

    What I wonder is if there is anyone new in radio today
    who is trying to be innovative or just plain makes very
    good radio (I include satellite, terrestrial). Or is radio
    as a medium just dead and irrelevant now.

    podcasts are killing radio just like the internet is killing cable tv

    Imus' era is still going strong (see my avatar). His show hadn't been that great for quite awhile after Nappy Headed Hos Gate and Charles retiring, but they are phasing out that black comedian finally (I guess 5 years is long enough to make Al Sharpton forgive you), and he's more or less back to the old Imus. Say what you want about the guy, he still does a morning show 5 days a week.

    All the truth in the world right there. When I was commuting 1.5 hours each way it was either listen to Houston's shitty morning radio (Rod Ryan Show, Walton & Johnson, etc. etc.) then a shitty afternoon programming OR listen to the Joe Rogan Experience / Quirks and Quarks: you can see the answer was very simple.
