I like the idea of using Artie and Jackie on the same show. Jackie's mic turned down and not in a real talking role, more a writer. Fred in there in the same role he has currently. Maybe a hot chick does the news at the end. We need a stuttering John character (I realize we need more youth in this equation) I just can't put my finger on who could be the actual host of the people who are out there right now....Its definitely not Opie or Anthony or Carolla or Bubba..... Maybe Rude Jude? What elements would be needed to have a great show as good as Howard's was when it was good? I think you need a host that doesn't give a fuck but is also interesting, honest, and funny. The host must move the show along well and know when the topic is getting boring. The show must rail against political correctness and the pussification of america. The guests must be relevant and asked interesting questions.
