    You spelled it wrong :coffee:

    Joan Beverly Kroc (n̩e Mansfield; August 27, 1928 РOctober 12, 2003) was the third wife of McDonald's CEO Ray Kroc and a philanthropist.

    She's a legend here in San Diego.

    Respect. :toptip:

    Lots of pointless, annoying clapping because they were terrified of dead air.

    No clapping...just great great radio...people who started listening during the Artie era or later has never heard the show fire on all cylinders ...Howard WAS the best

    I didn't come in until about '88 or '89 -it was during the Billy West years and have always thought that was the peak era for the show.
    Billy working with Jackie just fucking killed.
    All that racist material! The constant harassment of Robin before and during the news, the fucking with Tom Chiusano... I prefer the K-Rock years to the Sirius years.
    Howard worked harder back then and had better material.

    This...

    people who only know the old show from MTT or "specials" have no idea how great the show was...the power of the show was just going off on each other or current events...also Howard's wife/marriage was a huge part of he show and in a GOOD way...the edited for content shit they present as classic stern just plain sucks...

    Me and the family would gather around the radio with a hot cup of coco and the neighbors would come over with gifts.

    Listening intently, nobody dared speak or cause a stir, so as not to break the delightful gaze upon the broadcasting stereo reciever -- which was stuck on 92.3 for good because my dad broke the tuning knob to be sure we would never miss a show.

    We would then all sit around for hours after the show comparing thoughts. My crazy Uncle Walton always insisted they were going to fire Gary -- and even though it never happened we lied to him on his death bed and he passed away peacefully knowing.

    Yep, those were different times. When men were men and goils were goils.

    It will never be the same.

    WXRK years are what made Howard Stern a legend.
    They were his Appetite For Destruction years.
    Now we just have his Chinese Democracy.

    Absolutely- try contrasting the Alison calls with these ditsy Beth bits.
    I don't listen to MTT because I still have most of my tapes and mp3's from the era.
    You can still find original unedited shows from that era on some of the usenet groups.

    That group alone is worth buying Agent Newsreader for.
