    Driving home from work yesterday I listened to a part of the replay of this week's WUS. They were rehashing Mammory Lane from the week. At one point Jason, then later another guy (JD?) congratulated the Tapes Team on choosing great clips for the week. BOTH times, Hein immediately corrected them and said "No, no, no, it's NOT the Tapes Team that picks out these clips. IT'S THE FANS." Just one more piece of evidence that Shedders are right when the say that when THSS says that the fans pick out the clips, it's a lie. The letters from the fans are bogus. "Jim in New York writes and asks if we can play the clip from...." :facepalm:

    Also, why would anyone bother to write into the show and ask them to play a segment that can probably be heard immediately on YouTube? It's all bullshit.

    It's probably a mixture. I sent them an email three or four years ago asking the tapes team to play a clip (I forget which one). About a year after that, during a "Mammory Lane" vacation week, I heard Hein say my name and where I live and read my email verbatim on the air.

    Why are there only so many "tapes" that they play? This morning I heard the Quentin Tarintino interview from 1997 again. It was on like a month ago. Are they only allowed to used so many "tapes". Even the specials are the same tapes, but in a different order and someone else doing the talk up.

    Recycling of the tapes has been going on for a while. I began noticing it when Howard re-signed with SXM. Bubba was gone and Howard was going from four to three days a week, with more vacation time. So they decided to fill that time with the Tapes. In addition to vacation shows and MTT, they introduced TDiHH and the Shuffle. Those guys were probably stretched a little thin. So they began reusing previously edited tapes. I'd hear something on MTT and hear it again a month or so later on vacation. Or I'd hear something on vacation and again on TDiHH.

    This makes me sad because I was in my car thanking Jim in NY for choosing a clip that forced me to pull over to the side of the road (a difficult task when you're on the Brooklyn Bridge which is for sale, BTW) because I was just laughing so hard I couldn't see with the tears streaming down my face.

    You're telling me this Jim doesn't exist? :(

    I kind of believe they do exist. Stern has a lot of old people in his audience, and if they still listen they're clearly mentally disabled, so, dumb geezers? I've seen people here say they don't know (or are morally above) how to get music (or HS) downloaded for free for years.
