This show is nothing more than an infomercial for the days they are not in studio. The same tired old bits rehashed over and over again. If you ever watch pbs they have the Lawrence welk show and they always highlight the acts for that particular episode at the beginning. That is exactly what the stern show is now. Mon- Tuesday and some wed's they spend most of the show telling you why you should listen to thur-fri-sat-Sunday. The incredibly clear sounding seemingly always white mid west callers that miracously get through and are ready to tell you how incredible it was in their absence! You can set your fucking clock to the well oiled bullshit and daily setup that the show.
