    In recent weeks, there have been a lot of overlap between guests between Howard and O&A. It is kinda amazing how different the guests are on each show:

    Jim Breuer - He was on O&A for 2 1/2 hours today and not one story about his father shitting himself. His stories were fresh and different. They got his views on a lot of current events topics. Howard seems to get him to just recycle the same storylines all the time.

    Maria Menunous - Howard has turned her into an annoying soundbite machine where most of her interview consists of her say "How-WARD" and "No-AAA!". O&A got her to act like a real person and tells some decent stories.

    Roger Daltry - Howard is clueless to The Who history. Doesn't realize Pete Townsend sings a certain line in Baba O'Reilly and attributes quotes to Daltry that Howard completely misquoted. O&A are actually knowledgable about The Who and ask informed questions.

    Courtney Love - An annoying cunt on Howard. A lot more fun on O&A.

    The difference seems to be prep, Howard recycles the same shit over and over because it's easy and requires no effort, to have fresh interviews with re-cycled guests requires work.

    I was thinking with hearing Breuer on O&A this morning that this was the first time I found him NOT annoying and actually pretty damn funny. What a difference the host makes.

    Howard tends to fixate on the most negative aspects of a persons life, like Jim breuer's situation with his father. When he had John Varvatos on he mentioned that he grew up in a crowded home with a lot of siblings and Howard's only reaction was "wow, you must've really resented them all."

    He was on with Dennis Leary last year, both talking about their Dad's that were war vets. It was great radio.

    I listen both shows O&A actually do go out in public interact with people in normal situations rather than hiding behind wigs and dark limo windows .
    They have led normal lives and don't seem to be rewriting thier history and its more of a relaxed place for guests to go and talk and be listened to instead of having to Howard ANALysis of their lives and careers .

    I would rather listen to the guedts on O&A than. Howard at all
