I am a fairly new listener I started hearing the show just after Artie left unfortunately. Obviously after listening to many shows (Thanks to Todd Packer) it is no question the best era of the show was with Artie, in my opinion, I haven't listened to that many shows from Jackie's days, but Artie was just pure gold radio there was so much action and magic in the show, nowadays its like hearing your old aunt's and uncles talk, unbearable. My MAIN question, after all of these years, I just don't get how could Stern shit all over his fans that gave him ALL his fortune ? And why is he still RELEVANT? There is so many sites online that talk about him everyday, who are old fans why are they still HOOKED? If I was a old fan I wouldn't waste any time on him! Shit is very confusing I mean Stern didn't change after Jackie left, why after Artie?
