    I didn't here every second of this week's 10 Years on Satellite special, but I heard most of it. NOT ONCE did I hear Gilbert. WTF? Plenty of Artie clips, but not one Gilbert memory? I know both Artie and Gilbert are no longer welcome, but they both appear on Sternthology, Mammary Lane, and all those other repeat packages (albeit sanitized), so why no Gilbert on this special? Talk about rewriting history...

    That's pretty sad. Howard is a disloyal cunt.

    Gilbert was really funny, but I never got why he spat in the cakes....

    The 10 years on Sirius special is a programming nightmare. One of the appeals of satellite radio was semi-unrestricted format; that is, they could do long-form bits and interviews. Why would anyone, new fan or old, want to hear just 10 minutes of a "classic" satellite bit? The Stern Channels are incredibly poorly managed, Marci Turk must have some sort of Svengali-hold over Howard, because she isn't very good at even the most mundane aspects of her job.

    Listening to a 10 years of Sirius special is the equivalent of watching a New WKRP in Cincinnati marathon.

    Gilbert's wife Dara called and asked Gary Monkey if Gil was "banned" from the show.
    Monkey Millionaire said, "No. Not at all. We're just not having comedians on the show anymore".

    Facts of Life was better than the New WKRP. The point being that the new version is always shitty compared to the old version.

    I went into jack in the box this evening on a fluke, I usually drive in..
    there was a grossly obese slob working the counter, I mean slovenly disheveled, dirty looking.
    I exaggerate not..I guess some piss poor manager thought to look past the exterior and hire him for his inner quality.
    I ordered and sat and watched..it was a sight to see..He flicked open several bags and lined them up on the counter, I guess he thought it was a time saving measure. There was several new bags scattered on the floor, I was waiting for someone to pick them up and reuse them but even that was to much bother, there was several other little items of litter, pieces of food. Then I saw the crem de la crem..he took 3 or 4 of his fat fingers, reached into a corner of the hot shelf where they put the fresh orders and grabbed a lump of something he had stashed in there to eat. A piece of pie or part of a burger and poped it into his mouth and grabbed an empty bag and started putting in burgers like he was a real bustle of activity. Just a whirl of energy getting so much done.
    I was disgusted and getting mad at what I was seeing. I watch him toss my two breakfast jacks in the sack one of them was half unwrapped..
    "here ya go, hey here ya go"..I'm too angry to say anything cause what good would it do..I walk towards the door, I snatch the wrapper off one and drop it on the ground, same with the other then threw the bag and wraps in the trash. Did I forget to mention his coughing? without so much as putting his hand up? Just a "kaCough" straight ahead.
    I went to another jack about 4 miles away.

    Facts of life later on when Clooney was on was far worse than the reloaded WKRP

    He went on Opie and Jim not too long ago, that probably closed the book on him being featured on anything Howard related. Opie doesn't really give a shit anymore, but Howie's still gonna be a grudge holding faggot.

    I'm the opposite, and that's why I like the Sternthology format. I'd rather just hear the bits themselves, than sit around and listen to a radio show from 10 years ago in it's entirety.

    I hear you, but most of those Sternthology replays go on for longer than 10 minutes. My point is that truncating the bits to 10 minutes "or less" for the sake of a gimmick is counter-intitutive.

    Depends on what the subject matter it I suppose. Cutting down a segment where they goofed on Ronnie to 10 minutes with just the funny parts is fine by me, trying to cram a dumbass interview down to 10 is worthless.
