    I've long suspected that the reason Sour was "around" for a while was because he started this habit of making a horse noise toward the end of his calls -- on HSS and WUS. Since Howard is so sensitive toward this breed, I think he put Sour on hiatus.

    My theory was reinforced when Howard-the-liar mode came out a few weeks ago. Someone called in and asked why Sour wasn't on anymore. As Howard always does when he's about to lie, he starts fumbling around, feebly making stuff up on the fly. 'We haven't heard from him', 'Sour decides when to call' and 'Sour doesn't call in anymore'. (Like when he told David Arquette that he didn't look at the caller screen at all during the two hour Louis CK interview.)

    But good ol' Booey came waddling in to inadvertently expose Howard's bullshit lies, 'Boff, boff, Sour calls 10 times a day, I have a bunch of messages on my machine right now'. So, unless you think Sour only calls after hours, you can bet his name has been on the caller screen almost daily. But Howard has been afraid to pick up.

    I bet a little talk was had with Sour regarding the horse noise and now he's back on again.

    Howard gets spooked easily and was frightened of the Beth inference, but Sour is just too fucking funny to not have on, so he gave in.

    Haven't listened in years, but SS really was one of the few current "personalities" that was worth a minute or too. He is good.

    He insults the lovely Beffoats.

    Seriously, he doesn't have the balls to be an everyman anymore.

    ...when sour first came on the show howard was trying to box him in as a howard stern guy but sour was smart enough not to fall for that shit. i have felt a strain between them since that and i agree 100% sour shoes is just too good not to have on.

    Imagine the fun that could be had with Sal and Sour Shoes in the studio. Of course, that would also mean that Hollywood Howie would have to allow funny to happen.

    Though I rarely listen, I get the sense Sal and Richard are rarely, if ever, in the studio? Is this the case?

    True, and the show suffers for it.

    I think they're just glorified audio editors now.

    I was surprised and delighted when he started making horse references. I knew as soon as I heard it we would be hearing a lot less (if at all) of him on the the show.

    Seems reasonable... good enough for me. This is now fact!!
    Howard has a delay, so he could keep anything he wants off the air, but he is thin skinned, so he could have punished Sour.
    It would be awesome if he just did the horse noise again.

    So even Howard equates horses with Beth.

    Has anyone ever gone to see Sour at his Roy Rogers job?? Surely a shed member must live nearby. I think a weekly Sour Shoes Podcast should be in the works. Now.

    I used to be on Howards side of these arguments but now, I am totally on the counterpoint to him.

    I can see right through his passive aggressive bullshit now.

    I hate Ronny but, I have to take his side on this one.

    Howards being a huge pussy here.

    Sour Shoes is one of the very few people on the show who I enjoy listening to and it drives me crazy when Howard cuts him off or talks over him. It's especially frustrating when Sour is doing something brilliant and Howard interrupts to ask a stupid question or crowbar-in a pathetically lame joke. It's clear Wiggy is too dumb and out of touch to understand most of Sour's references and jealous of someone who actually has real talent. I always figured those were the reasons he's not on more but maybe the horse thing has something to do with it.

    He's talented, he's funny. Not a very good match for the Howard Stern Show of today.
