    I've been listening to the HSS since about 1996 or so, and for years and years I was reluctant to talk about it to most of the people I hung out with. Why? Because most of them judged the show on the E! show or on what they'd heard, so I'd have to spend 15 minutes telling them that it was more than strippers and porn, that it was actually a fucked-up soap opera with real people and freaks, that it was the best commentary on pop culture ever, etc. etc.

    Regardless, I would always cringe when someone would call me out as a Stern Fan. But now?

    NOW?

    I won't even cop to being a Stern fan at all, no matter what. I'm WAY more embarrassed by the "new" Stern...and to defend him would ring hollow, because I can't. It's almost like he's proven that all the people who hated him were right, that he's just a no-talent. I feel like I'm a fucking MADONNA fan still wearing that jean jacket with the pyramid in 2012, you know what I mean?... So I just say: "I dunno, I listen sometimes, but his show is not as good as it once was". And leave it at that.


    I don't know if anyone has interesting commentary along these lines, but thanks for listening. Now fuck off.

    I agree with Hateman. Most people I know are still in category a). [have never heard Howard's show, and have only heard terrible things about it, and they believe he's evil]. None of them are aware of the current state of the show. I used to tell them about Crazy Alice, tradio, etc. I just don't mention it at all anymore. I don't even know how to explain.

    Why doesn't Howard ever sue over clapping? I'm sure every shitty morning zoo show does it even to this day. THIEVES!

    The Stern that was acting like an annoying baffoon with his "look at me" douchebag antics on agt is what embarrassed me the most.

    At least the fact that his radio show is neutered and out of steam is hidden from the general public.

    The AGT debacle was out there in primetime.

    How many people who never heard Stern before watched his antic on tv and thought:

    "This annoying douche is what all those Stern fans have been raving about all those years? I used to think he was cruel and obscene but I never knew what an absolute tool this guys is. Geez those Stern fans are even bigger losers than i thought."

    Howard Stern has been exposed as a complete no-talent. Plain and simple. And somehow he managed to parlay that into nearly a billion dollars. Amazing.
