    Well, that didn't take long.

    While listening to the 2 weeks around when Jackie left, I came across this gem.

    Jackie left on 3/5/2001. On the 3/8 show, Howard said that they wanted Billy back to take Jackie's place. Gary called but Billy's wife wouldn't put him on. She said Billy only goes forward, not back. Howard said that Billy left over money so they would give him Jackie's money to get him back.

    Observations:

    They scrambled to get someone to replace Jackie so they knew the value of another voice on the show
    The loyalty to Jackie was short lived. Within a couple of days they were giving his money away
    Jackie was right - they did break up the Beatles and the band was never the same
    The show blew it by not giving in to Jackie's demands and the show was ruined because of it

    Yay Jackie, boo Howard

    I hope that Billy made great money on his voiceover/cartoon work.

    Nah, the show was ruined by Howchie phoning it in everyday once he hit his payday. The show was still great with Artie.

    I think Howard would've taken Jackie back numerous times in recent years but listening to old tapes and recent convos over the years about Jackie, Robin hates him and has made sure Howard never takes him back. If Robin tells Howard to jump, he says how high. He'd do anything for her. She's blocked Jackie's return over the years. She really seems like a miserable person who holds grudges for forever. I mean according to their busting on eachother, this is a woman who's gone through tons of assistants while the others have the same one. I wonder why.

    He seems really happy. I recommend the documentary, "I Know That Voice" on Netflix. It was made by the guy who does Bender on Futurama, and Billy is in it. It's about the whole voice over industry. It seems like a pretty cool group of people who are humble and funny and appreciate how cool their jobs are. Basically Anti-Howards. Ed Asner busts out a switchblade. It's just great.

    On a semi-related note, I want to fuck the lady who voiced Bobby Hill. She plays Pam on Louie too. Yup.

    That would have been interesting.. Billy West was a good choice...Jackie was a tool to leave...Its funny that Howard made fun of Jackie for missing his cat...Now Howie is a cat-man also..

    I doubt Billy's wife wouldn't put him on the phone. That just furthered the lie about Billy's wife having a problem with the show and that's why Billy left.

    Truth is, Billy didn't want to sign a piece of paper that made him responsible for saying things that were written for him.

    Dunno, according to Celebrity Net Worth, Billy is worth 35 million. He doesn't have Howard marbles, but he isn't starving either.

    Oh what could have been!

    It would have been TERRIBLE for Billy -- he's an easy multimillionaire and famous now, at the top of his field. He would just be Fred Norris Lite if he'd stayed.

    But it would have been great for the show. Billy is hilarious with or without Jackie working his mouth.

    The truth is, purely in retrospect, Wigward didn't deserve him.

    I've been listening to Jackie stuff on YouTube lately. Howard, Robin, and Fred really seem to hate Jackie now. I think it hurt Stern's ego that Jackie left. Even when Jackie was back on the show as a guest, ten years after quitting, Stern still couldn't move past it. Jackie got sick of it and said, "it's been ten years and your still chewing on the same piece of meat"

    Would you say, in your professional life, you just make things up and blurt them out in the courtroom:

    1. Every day
    2. 2-3 a week
    3. Once per month.

    Are you ever secretly shocked that you get away with it?

    Oh he did. And it PISSED Howie off that someone could be successful w/out him.
