    Between the commercials, the bumpers, the phony phone calls we have all heard a thousand times, and the full songs they play before Stern comes back, there is really not much show left. It is very easy to make a commute to work without hearing an original word of the show.

    If a commercial tree falls in the HSS forest and there aren't any listeners left to hear it... did it really advertise a product?

    Prank calls are illegal to do on the radio now. How does no one on the show not mention this?

    I had no problem with the commercials at all. I had a problem with what was in between them.

    The show is 100 times better with all of the bullshit edited out. Still bad but not as maddening --- and much shorter.

    I...um...edit out all of the commercials myself in the copy I listen to.

    :rolleye: Uh,,,,duh I think I might have mentioned this in about a bazillion posts & threads!!! Year 1 on Sirius.....2hrs before a commercial break.
    Year #7.....every 20 fucking minutes depending on when Howard has to pee pee. :giggle: oh,,,,AND for the last year or so I've been posting about Howard interrupting Robin's news every fucking minute for a LIVE PLUG or commercial....it was ridiculous...I sent EMAILS...left calls and posted that Robin's NEws is RUINED because he breaks in with a LIVE PLUG every few minutes.


    hmmmmmmm....and NOW??? he rarely interrupts her news hour!!! hmmmmmmmmm ..amazing !!

    thank you
    peace & love

    Yeah - and then Howard tries to claim that he "does a four hour radio show every day". Bullshit. Howard's show is like watching an NFL game - an hour of actual content in total spread out over several hours.

    Yep,,,always said he's the greatest con-artist....it doesn't help that he thinks his listener's FAN BASE is mostly 18 to 32 yr old morons. He's forgotten about the TRUE LOYAL OLDER FANS!! (like me) who have had ENUFF of the bullshit !!
    Sometimes I wonder why I've been so loyal...after Artie was FIIIIIIRED !!! I said I would cancel.....but I'm still listening to the show every single day for the past 25yrs!!!
    It's all we have......left.

    peace & love

    I don't think even Mutt would argue how we're getting more Howard than the Krock days

    and for the record, Howard may (debatable) not get a piece of the ad revenue, but he sure as shit gets paid for the live reads, which have steadily increased in direct disproportion to the amount of show time

    so yes, it is all about the marbles
