    How can Howard not be ashamed of this joke of a channel? I have today off so I decided to leave H101 on while I putter around the house and wait for the Jay Thomas Show at 4:00 PM on 104. At 2:00 PM they started playing This Date in Howard History for the 3RD TIME today. I believe the schedule so far has been:

    TDiHH - Pretty good but not something I care to hear more than once.
    Dr. Harry Fisch - Unlistenable with Shuli constantly interrupting to crowbar-in lame jokes nobody laughs at.
    TDiHH - AGAIN!!
    Greg Fitzsimmons - Blah, blah, blah. I didn't listen to a word he said.
    TDiHH - AGAIN!!!

    There's no excuse for this, why couldn't they at least throw in an episode of MTT, the Satellite Years, or SOMETHING besides the same show over and over? I know some people make excuses for Tim and say he's just the "fall guy", has budget constraints, etc. but the only explanation for this is laziness and incompetence. It wouldn't cost anything to throw in an extra show they already have in the archives.

    Tapes team is taking a break.

    They put tremendous time and effort into the April Fools day prank that howard was so proud of even though
    there wasnt a single article about it in the media.

    They don't put any effort into programming because they realize no one is listening.

    Pretty lame but at least they didn't go with multiple replays of Shuli + Dr. Fisch.

    They don't even need the Tapes Team, they could play one of the old episodes of MTT, Satellite Years, Shuffle, or anything else they already have. That's why it's completely unacceptable to keep playing the same show over and over.

    Actually that's a good point. Maybe the fact that the AGT101 abortion got so little attention finally drove home the point that most people have given up and don't bother listening any more.

    They should just alternate Riley Martin shows with "Jackie's Joke Hunt" reruns. No better programming than THAT! :c

    You should, do what I do. I turn on the show when it's live, and wait for Jay Thomas. Don't bother with 101.

    They clearly don't give a fuck. Tim's probably away so the rest are just jerking off to each other or just blabbering.

    Send email to sternshow@howardstern.com so Howard sees in what state his shit channels are in.

    But this morning's Fish show was a replay (is it live on Wed nights?), and I think it's two hours.

    Last month SiriusXM had a promotion where you could get an XM Radio and a one month subscription for $19.99. I considered it at the time because I have an old radio that can only get the Sirius channels. If they ever have the same deal again I'm taking it. Fuck Howard - all I really care about now is Jay Thomas, I love baseball, and I'd like to give O & A a try.

    I've tried both and neither do any good. Fred filters out all the negative email before Howard sees it and Tim just tells you to change the channel if you don't like what's on. They're all lazy and don't give a shit because they still get paid no matter how bad the show & channels are.

    two things at play here. the scrubbing and sometimes re-scrubbing the tapes team does to the old shows in order to "uncensor" them.

    then there is the fact that howard knows in the, probably near, future his only marbles are going to come from his old tapes. sirius or some other company will pay him for a channel of his old material, so he's sitting on as much of his archive as possible right now. but don't expect a bursting damn of old tapes when he does get a deal. he'll still own them and have every single say over which tapes, which edits and how many tapes will be broadcast. will be lucky to get a new old show each weekday. he has more $$ than he, his gold digger, daughters and any grandchildren could ever spend. he has more tapes than he could listen to in the rest of his life. but these are the things that consume this prick.

    Bad day in history?
    They couldn't find much classic Stern that wouldn't offend his AGT fans?

    They must have plenty of stuff on hand that's already scrubbed and ready to go. Even a Shuffle or MTT from last month would be preferable to playing the same exact show 3 times by 2:00 PM.

    Make sure you post his reply, I'm sure he'll just tell you to change the channel and listen to something else because there are so many great things on satellite radio. He seems to think that's a valid excuse for his incompetence.
