Why don't they just play the tapes from the begining ?

    Not sure if this has been suggested, I'm sure it has but how great would it be if they just start the show from as early back as they could on 101 and let it run right up into the "revolution" takes place.

    That's how I listen to them. Whenever I've got nothing better to do I just continue where I left off... I'm up to 1996.

    Anything, as long as it's not the 'clapping' era.

    This.

    Plus there is probably too much revisionist history.... I mean editing.... that the tapes team has to do to prevent Wiggy from looking like a hypocrite.

    Half the show was commercials, a quater of it was just them yammering, the rest was usable mammary lane stuff.20000 hrs of tapes only holds so much as we can see by them playing the same shit over and over.

    This.

    It's not like they can just press play and let things roll. The amount of editing required per Howchie's new standards is incredible. The tapes team would hit play and then something like this would pop up fairly quickly.

    "Robin, these racist songs are crazy!" (Plays tape) "the house next door to me was sold to nig****!"

    Does Howard even have the balls to play Allison segments? Or is that taboo on the replays too?

    Yeah, but even half the playable stuff is gone and never to be heard again. Do they play any Fred segments about his marriage? I remember back in the mid-2000s when they first played the rainbow room segment, Howard apologized on air to Fred and said he was mortified and I think he even called him off the air.

    Most of the celebrity goofing is dead as well.

    What is there left to play besides the same tired bits that can make it past the tapes team in decent shape.

    I believe part of the divorce settlement included him never again playing any of the old bits that included Alison.

    thats the plan for 2017... although I dont ever expect that to happen, it would be awesome! but they could fuckn not play the same shit over and over like they have with so much out there!

    with the "evolution", most of the tapes including a lot of the early Sirius taped shows would be like 10 minutes long.

    That eliminated half his radio career right there. Plus if they mix the tapes up its easier for them to repeat the same bit. Makes it seem like they have more than they actually do have - which, after all these years, really isn't much.

    True but that has nothing to do with the Tapes Team being able to play complete shows from the old days.

    Because it would suck ass. The shit is dated. Classic moments are worth replaying. A typical show from 1989 would be annoying. Would you like hearing rants against Charles Grodin again? How about battles with long forgotten radio hosts? Even the best stuff isn't nearly as good to listen to these days, so what about the other mundane shows? I remember the hell it was when he was shooting Private Parts. Terrible listening to hour after hour about making the movie. Best of shows is a great idea. The problem is they don't replay some of the really good stuff. Old interviews with Bon Jovi sucked, but Howard getting scolded by his mom for the shit he said about his home life was really good. Yet, we only get the old Bon Jovi interview.
