    Not that I'm complaining - far from it - but when I tuned into H100 this morning, they were just playing bits and pieces from this week's three shows. No narration, no hosts, no mention of "Best of the Week". Has that also gone away?

    It's the same show. Just renamed "worst of the week" with no hosts.

    How much could BOTW cost? A few lines of script for a show staffer, a few sound effects and the same clips? Weird.

    Maybe they finally realized that there wasn't content worthy of the term "best."

    Based on the posts from those here who can still stand listening, I wouldn't doubt it......

    How much would it also really cost to do some decent shows on H101? Not a lot either. But it's Howard's standard marbles excuse - no money. Oh, but please buy a calendar so my whorse can create a $7M wing for virus-carrying cats.

    Show is so jam-packed with great stuff for 2-3 days that they had to eliminate bumpers and lead-ins, because they need every second for Howie's greatness.

    It's been like that for a while. No more narration or intros, they just play random stuff from the week (over and over and over). They seem to be focusing on the interviews and they keep running promos to let you know when the big names are coming up ("hear the Paul McCartney interview at 4:10 PM on H100"). It's clear they're trying to get Howard a gig on an interview show but the more you hear them the more you realize what a shitty job he does.

    More than $0. Therefore, it will never happen.

    No "this date in Howard history" yesterday morning, but I did hear it at 4am and quickly turned the channel, fuck Howie, he continues to piss on us but I don't think we care anymore, he's also pissed at Jerry O for asking questions so he had his new show cancelled... that bastard:c

    Jerry was actually a good guest. genuine fan, loved how he let him know that it sucked as a listener not to have any continuity

    They've played the McCartney interview at least 3 times today and they just announced it's on again around 8:00 PM. It's not even the weekend yet and it's already been played at least a dozen times. There's no excuse for that.

    You have to have a week before you can have a "best of." Fucking Stern should be fired. Yesterday.
