    First time I have ever heard it. The thing is nothing to write home about. Reminded me of Mancow. I also listened to a bit of Ron and fez? In all honest, I thought it was o and a until I looked at the radio. Live stern still beats them IMO

    It's like anything else, bud. You have to get to know the characters, atmosphere, etc. It takes a bit of an investment with radio.

    Try it when everyone is there. Jimmy was in LA and Opie was on vacation.

    I would say a million times better. They make me LOL several times a show. No one on Howard's show make me LOL. A few weeks ago I was listening on my iPod touch to their show in my car stopped at a light with the windows down and I LOL'd so loud that a lady on the back of a motorcycle looked over. I think she thought I was laughing at her.

    and when their show is not funny it's interesting. Howard's show is a boring infomercial for AGT and Robin giggling at every word he says for no reason. I can't fathom how anyone still enjoys the HS show. It's beyond brutally bad.

    I felt the same at first (some of their voices really grated on me), but I gave theshow a chance and once you get used to the voices and personalities, it really starts to click. Overall I wuold say the current O&A show is far better than the current Stern show, and there is no comparison

    Unless you like hearing gay rants, photography, and america's got talent talk.

    Seriously though, other than Howard's ability to do in depth reviews and elicit interesting answers from guests, I'm hard pressed to think of another area where I prefer Stern over them nowadays. O& A have more heterosexual male catered topics, and guests, plus they often have comedians sit in on the show.

    Lil Jimmy Norton is also the funniest on air regular, and Anthony is the best impressionist on either show (I think Fred is great but he is underused these days).

    I just prefer to hear three guys I can relate to shoot the shit than Howard and Robin.

    And their show is always topical. They have several TVs in the studio tuned to various news networks. You don't have to wait a week to get a reaction to a news event because they're on one of their 10,000 vacations.

    If you like in-depth interviews, then you'll love Ron Bennington. Nobody does it better... not even Stern in his prime.

    Hey Boff, I wonder if they're looking for a producer?

    Fuck no. They already have producers and a booker. And those guys actually WORK.

    I agree with some of the posters here.....

    Opie and Jimmy weren't in today. When Norton is on, it's a whole different show. Get this.....you actually laugh at some point (most days, anyway). Regardless......still better than the AGT/NBC/NSAL infomercial the lying wig-wearer puts out when he bothers to show up once or twice a week.

    O & A suck.... but Norton is hilarious..... I listen sometimes just for him..... or if a good comic is in.....

    and when Patrice was alive and would stop in it was hilarious

    One of my favorite O&A bits from 2012...the boys discussing a "hoarder" TV show and Anthony goes on a rant that is just hate-filled and spot-on. If you're new to O&A, this is a good clip because all 3 of the guys are engaged in the conversation and it displays how they play off each other. Anthony is always a blast because he always sounds like he wants to kill somebody (usually somebody blaek).
