    The only people he takes phone calls from are ETM, Bobo, Maryann, KOA Blacks, Tommy from Malden and his fag Ralph.

    Its ok Howard, the listeners are perfectly happy if you dont take these calls.



    Dont fix the phones Mel. Let Howard stew.
    But if you do make sure you send Howard the bill. :cheer:

    Howard has to continue to put up the facade of success. When he had tens of millions of listeners, I could see where phone issues would be problematic. But now? He complains as if his show will come to a halt without the phones. Sadly, no more.....

    Howard gets so upset because the first hour is scripted, including the calls. That's why he only takes calls that set up a bit, a phoney phone call, a song parody or something that Howard want to discuss. When the phones go down he has to (God forbid) be creative and actually put some effort into the show. So rather than just playing it on the fly like the old Howard would, he panics and goes to a commercial.

    Cause they paid all those people to call in to say they love Howard and AGT, and to kiss his ass, so without any callers, he's out the money from his budget and the show is even more boring than it normally is.

    You would think later in the show during the news would have been commercial free but no it was worse than recent memory, every time Robin read a news story Howard interrupted with a live read.

    Cause whining about the phone system used to be a great bit in the mid-90s.

    Jews love to complain, it's when they are happiest.

    He should just set up the 5 regular callers with ISDN lines.

    -Sirius pays for maintenance and repair of equipment......is why Stern complains
    -Howard hoards all the marble instead of hiring talent for his revolution....is why he never complains about lack of talent on his channels

    "But Boff there's been 5 meetings about this problem"

    Howard suggests bumping it up to Mel Karmazin (realizes that guys on his way out) then throws out John Malone's name.
    You can just tell Howie is jealous of the man who made way more money manipulating Siruis stock than he did.

    Correct. He thinks it goes along with his "I have Everyman problems too" shtick. But what he really sounds like all these years is a whiny bitch.
