    There seem to be lots of new posters here that do. And that's awesome! But do they still listen to the show? I hope they do, because I stopped listening a long time ago. Is there anything new and different about it?

    Which one? The HSS, or 98% of what's on TV and radio?

    Name a single radio program that is better. The Stern show still delivers the best radio around on a consistent basis and no one can match the guests and interviews.

    When Stern delivered the best radio they had a hard time getting guests....

    Guests and interviews is Oprah...


    Can I name a radio show that is better?

    I can name many that are as mediocre and instantly forgettable...and most that were fans of him when he was great find that to be the opposite of "still delivering".


    Serious question...Howard today vs the KRock days...which is better? Are they equal?

    Listen to what? Howard Stern? Oh he's still on?? Because when I tuned to Howard 100, it was replays. Just like last week. And the week before. And the week before that. Fuck Howard.

    This week I listened to a radio DJ try and be funny by doing "the voice of God" while having a discussion with God.

    Not funny.

    Howard is correct that he does some things much better than most, even if he pilfered the ideas from others.

    I listen and it's still great radio in my opinion, but of course the KRock was better everyone knows that. He was more offensive then.

    That's just me though.

    I don't know anyone (but myself) who continued to listen when he moved to Sirius and I haven't listened in at least 3 and a half years.

    I still have Sirius. Pay like $6 a month. My job requires car travel where cell coverage is at times spotty. I listen out of habit. I turn the show off in disgust just about every day.

    Why would anyone bother to listen to radio, with so many great podcasts out there? Adam Corolla has 4 different podcasts and all of them are better than the Wig. And guess what... he works, get this, every day! If there's a holiday during the week, he doesn't even take the rest of the week off.
    Even that Rover guy was better than Stern by the time I quit listening. From what I read on here, his shitty show hasn't improved any since then.
    The Wig used to be a great interviewer, now he's easily the worst working today*.
    If Sirius is really considering renewing a contract with him, the entire board of directors should be fired immediately.

    Honestly? Yes, I do, but not because I find it interesting. I like to keep up to date and current with what I need to be bitching about.

    And when I do listen, it's for 30 minute bursts while I'm driving around. Mind you, their entire week consists of a 12 hour plop so the 30 minute bursts do eventually make up the entirety of the show after they have played it again and again and again and again and again and again.
