    I thought Howard didn't want help Sirius promote the show. Why would he permit the tapes team to put this together. He won't attend the show because of the lawsuit.

    I heard a preview of the show advertised during Jay Thomas. There were several Artie soundbites. You remember Artie, the guy who used to work on the show but Howard doesn't talk about much anymore.

    I'm sure this will be as, if not more, riveting as the Van Halen Special.

    ...oh that makes sense, doing a show with tapes from a funny guy that loves bruce. the real beauty part here is howard gets paid to air that schlock and although it features artie, he gets nothing.

    rebel rebel.

    What's the special going to be? 2 segments of when Clarence Clemons was on the show, then one segment of the Sopranos guy and then one more segment about Gary and Ross Zapin going to every Bruce concert? Wow, great stuff. Sorry but outside of NY and NJ most people couldn't care less about Bruce Springsteen.

    Very true. When I first started listening to satellite, I was baffled by the amount of people that have seen shows equaling triple digits.

    Will they play clips of Howard goofing on Bruces song intro rants - doubt it.

    Best Bruce stuff Howie ever did

    Lets review...
    Howard hated Bruce's music.
    Stern show had Springsteen underlings as guests. Most of the interviews involved getting the guests to try and bash Bruce....and of course Bruce was stealing all their marbles...:jj:

    ...i just dont agree because bruce was on the covers of time and newsweek during the same week in 1975 and hes made way too much money for ny or jersey fans to be the core of that. true they are his core fans but when your bruce youre bigger than new jersey.
