    Well? Speak, fuckers. If you were a fan, are a fan, or never really bothered to listen (GHP), I want to know. Let's talk the show for a bit -- what do you like, hate, miss, etc.

    I've been a fan since around 1994 (whenever he was brought over to the Bay Area). It had to be around 6th grade for me. My mom would play him on the drive to school, and sometimes I'd bring in my cassette AM/FM portable player into class to listen (I'd put my backpack on my desk with the headphones covered but in a specific spot and rest my head on it, the teachers were ghetto and didn't give a shit).

    Loved Jackie on the show, had gaps where I didn't/couldn't listen but for the most part, have been a diehard fan. Went to the last show at K-ROCK, shit was crazy cool but cold and rainy. Still have a 1-9-06 sign and a "I Love Howard" heart pillow they were handing out.

    Your turn.

    Right here

    Its not always awesome, but if it actually bothered me, I'd stop listening. The retards who cry and whine about how bad it is but cannot turn it off need fucking lives.

    Also, I really really really miss Artie. And Mark the Bagger. :c

    I've only listened once since Artie left. It was the week George Takei was there. The show just isn't the same with the 3rd chair being empty and I can't believe they didn't fill it with somebody else.

    I listen 2 to 3 times a week in the car. I guess i will continue to listen until the end. I don't know any better i guess.

    The IQ Test Results show has definitely been the high point since he left. But yeah, the room is way too empty now.

    i still listen, but if i can't, i don't really care. I am running out of my allotted 5 GB on my wireless USB thing, so I will have to stop listening until the 23rd, when i get a whole new 5 GB all over again.

    I used to download and burn every show, I have an archive i started in 2003 or 2004 i think. I haven't even LOOKED for a show to download in almost a year.

    I listen, and bitch about everything. listening is a hard habit to break, but man, it's frustrating with Robin yelling "AGAIN" over everyone, and it sucks without healthy Artie there.

    Ive been a fan since late 80's , I still listen every day and get a chuckle at things , The show has changed a few times but some changes were good and some bad , I pause a lot on my Starmate so if something gets old i fast forward through it , I've actually never hated the show ... :dontknow:

    I give it a chance every day when I get up, and my commute in and out -- however, my patience with it is razor thin, and I will jump in a heartbeat -- wasn't that long ago, when I listened to every minute of every show at least once

    Exactly. I listened for the first time in 3 weeks today, Robin drove me off in short order. My mp3 player is always stocked with excellent podcasts.

    I've been a fan of the show since it first broadcast in the early nineties on 91X in San Diego. I can't say I've ever been much of a fan of Howard's though. He always came off as a huge douchebag, but put him with a great group of characters and I gotta admit he put on an entertaining show for years. I turn into to THSS as soon as I get in to my truck every morning, but I usually tune out after a few.

    Been a fan since mid-90s.

    When he went to Sirius, I listened to every show, front to back, for the first two years. I haven't listened to an entire show for about a year.

    Not really because of the quality, but my schedule has changed and it's not as easy to listen front to back.

    Although Howard has def lost his edge from the early years, it's still damn good and entertaining. It's still the best show on radio.

    Yeah, the edge is gone. He had a lot more energy in the mid-90s, but fuck, that was 15 years ago. I can dig mellower Howard, I just wish he'd participate more in bits and things. Prank phone calls (real or otherwise) are fucking old.

    My favorite part of the show has always been when they are bullshitting about the news or whatever. Picking on the staff bores me, whackpackers bore me, and porn stars/strippers bore me.

    I listen most of the time to what i can, i have actually stopped downloading the show to try to catch everything i miss because now i really dont care. He no longer puts out gold every minute and you can go pass a lot of stuff without missing a beat. For example, today with the naked cowboy was a complete waste, it was a HTV segment and that's it. All we heard is Howard ask a question, the old lady curse, and the Cowboy give some lawyer answer. This shit went on for what? 30 minutes straight? The chick is a wackpacer from what i heard but it seems like she had to be there with the dude because that shit was all fake. It was just boring.
