Ben and Ray are on up there in years, and it wouldn't surprise me if they both made their way to Sheol before the end of this contract. Now don't get me wrong, they seem like sweet folks, and I really don't wish them an early demise--but I honestly think that when one or both of them go, that Howard and/or Don will try to milk it for publicity. Here's what I think will happen--Howard will quit broadcasting on Sirius and Don Buchwald won't just put out a short note about the passing of his parents, but will hype it by putting out one or more press releases about how integral they were to Howard's career, and how other celebrities like David Letterman emulated the way Howard used his parents on air, etc. It also wouldn't surprise me at all if they didn't do a "Best of" Ben & Ray Stern to fill more airtime on Sirius. I can also envision the behind the scene calls to TMZ and other outlets regarding the funeral so that we're treated with pictures of Howard and Beth all done up for the funeral. Beth, of course, will look amaaaazing in some type of inappropriate black dress.
