    The WUS had to be reined in - that's all there is to it.

    If you'll recall, we reached a point, about 18 to 24 months ago, where the HSS had declined so much that the WUS was actually the more interesting and more topical of the two shows. Sal, Richard, Ronnie, JD, Shuli, Jason, Will, and even guys like Medicated Pete, were sitting in busting each other's balls, as well as those of our two hosts', on a very regular basis. They were also getting random in-studio guests on the show who hadn't appeared on the HSS and who, in many cases, were more compelling than the guests Howard did have in that day.

    As a result, it wasn't long before entire segments of the HSS were being devoted to discussing and analyzing what had gone down on the WUS the day before. Howard's ego could handle that reversal of fortunes only for so long. And so, having effectively become a victim of its own success, Howie pulled the plug on the WUS and ordered all the minions out of the studio, leaving John Hein to flounder out there on an island all by himself far too often.

    Oh, so you're saying Howard is a gay, closeted, cuckold, paranoid, manorexic, wigged bitch?

    Gotcha.

    it's over johnny, it's OVER!!!!!

    It was bad enough when you didn't know who was gonna be on the WUS that day. It would be hein, maybe booey and if lucky a 3rd person. I remember listening to last year it would be john by himself and he would have to call down some of the back room staff, usually JD. Hell even Benjy doesn't bother with the show anymore.

    There are so many great shows that now do podcasts - commercial free - that I don't listen to as much live radio as before.

    The WUS used to be fun, but once the first commercial came on - I was gone.

    Think of the dilemma:

    The shoe-polish haired despot shows up, wearing a ridiculous outfit and mumbles for an hour or two into the mic. His yes men are all around, ensuring absolute devotion to the State. Yet his moronic mumbling is just that: moronic.

    What to do?

    You tell the world that the Emperor's new clothes are astonishing. Incredible. There are no adequate superlatives in the North Korean, err, English language to describe his stature among men. Then you take your paycheck and go home to drown your whoredom in Taaka Vodka.

    That Wrap up Show is unlistenable. John Hein comes on all excited over stupid shit like Ass Napkin Ed's views. Maybe 15 years ago this would have been a great concept. As of now, there's nothing remotely fun or funny for them to discuss.

    It's pretty much the most unlistenable show in professional radio show history - and that is not an overstatement. To hear Jon Hein devote 20 mins. talking about Ass Napkin Ed by himself, you can just feel the complete meaninglessness in his delivery and what he is trying to sell the audience. It's just a guy stammering on and on with zero content in the actual words he is speaking.

    Let's not forget, it's the HOWARD STERN WRAP-UP SHOW. Clearly a new edict set forth by Wiggy, to remind the audience of less than 1000 who the real boff is.
