    Because Howard doesn't sell things to his fans like Bill O'Reilly or Rush Limbaugh. Well except for gift subscriptions and calendars.

    It does kind of smell down here.

    It's good to mingle with the riff-raff every now and then. :smile:


    OK, I can't take the urine smell anymore.
    :c

    if he was somehow able to put the E shows on iTunes, i'd be glued to my computer with my bong in one hand and my debit card in the other.

    I'm willing to bet this has not happened because no one in Howards camp is smart enough to have brought the idea to his attention. :fil:


    I'd buy a year of shows, like the early 90's, for 20 bucks

    I think its because there is stuff in those shows that Yoko BethO and the Hamptons crowd would not approve of.

    Why doesn't Howard Stern sell his old shows via iTunes or Amazon or some other means?

    he has always been against this because he feels he will make more money keeping it exclusive to radio. i think this will change, but lots of the old ones have been sanitized.

    Never mind the E show, I want high quality video channel 9 shows. Maybe even in HD.

    And then there is this as well.

    WTF is he holding onto this stuff for? After he dies, and people remember him again?

    Agreed.

    Wiggy could pretend that his past didn't happen but I remember it very well. It was GREAT but he is ashamed of it now.

    I'd easily pay 20 bucks for a month of the old shows. Start from his first day at KROC and just roll through for a decade or 15 yrs. Of course, I'd only want to the real version. I don't want anything with Greddo shooting first.

    Those shows fucking rocked. They worst made low budget shit you ever saw and somehow they were the funniest thing ever. I guess a lot of it had to do with how much we loved the characters on the show. It was funny as hell to just see Jackie sitting there cackling like a fucking chicken.

    i will never spend another cent on anything howard sells. it could be a tape of howard giving a blowjob to michelle obama, then shackling her to a bed and defecating on her and i STILL wouldn't pay to see that.
    i'm not interested in anything about howard that would put another dime into his bank account. yes, i'm one of those suckers who still pays for sirius, but only because i listen to other shows.

    I doubt 'evolved' Howie wants unedited shows from the good years out there, lest anyone be reminded that he wasn't always a suckass, castrated douchebag.

    Because Howard is an old idiot that thinks if he allows them to be downloaded then they'll be pirated.

    :secret: The show has been pirated already since the mid-90's. :jj:

    It's how we found Howard on the west coast, was from that show.
