    So for the first time in a couple months I actually listened to WUS yesterday . OMFG was I bored out of my mind. I downloaded several episodes because each one was more boring than the next.


    20-30 minutes of Jon Hein talking about what a great interviewer Howard is. Rest of the hour is commercials. That is literally the entire WUS now they have maybe 1-2 calls now because they don't want anti-Howard calls getting on and the z-list celebrity doesn't even talk anymore it's all about Hein talking about Howard's greatness

    Just an additional revenue stream now...the show was around 25-30 mins before new contract, now Buchwald and co. Have found a new way to get his clients more money....live reads, more commercials etc..

    The GTD Scientology-lite nonsense has made the Wrap Up Show wierd. 25 minutes of Jon Hein repeating the same thing over and over what a great interviewer Howatd is

    I remember a time when the Wrap Up Show could actually be better than the actual show on any given day.

    It is unlistenable. I personally can't stand Gary, the way he gasps for air before he talks, and his constant ass kissing. But it is Hein that makes the wrap up show so awful, probably because everything he says comes off as fake. The entire channel is an embarrassment. The revolution has failed.

    Besides clips that the real show would play, I've never listened to a single wrap up show. Never even owned a Sirius radio for that matter.

    It was listenable when all the staff came in and ripped on each other. I couldn't last these days more than the "helllloooooo everybodyyyyyyy" and "hello hello"

    All this talk of what great content he'll have on his channels (other than the main show) pre-2006, and he ended up systemically killing it all off. Can't be more entertaining than Howard. Howard entertains! No one else!

    And if Howard isn't entertaining than this outcome was inevitable with all of the auxiliary content.

    It was really good when Sal, Benji and Jason were on. Ball breaking and ratting each other out. It was more interesting than the show sometimes. Howard used to talk about what happened on the Wrap Up Show the next day. I don't listen anymore. The whole thing sucks.

    And there in lies the challenge. They have to actively work to make it more boring than Wig Vomit so as not to upstage him.

    They're getting paid either way, but I wonder if it bothers them sometimes that they have to repeat the same things every show.

    I think they're well past the point of just sounding fake...

    A lot of his promises and ideas have never happened. He has teased a lot of content and 75% of it never happened. He had so much he at one point boasted he had three channels on Sirius for him. Now he can barely fill one channel. The two he has is just repeat of that day and the other is highly edited past shows.

    Really how many ideas were teased and never happened. To be honest the tease would have been more entertaining than the actual product, and that is prolly a stretch.
