    This is some ENTERTAINING radio.


    I'm not a big Stern guy in the first place, but this crap was nuts...

    He never got a hold of the assistant.

    I love Howard. I've listened since 1990 when I was 16. I think he is an incredible talent and one of the best celebrity interviewers in any medium.

    The show will not be the same if Artie leaves. He is the funniest part of the show and I hope he comes back.

    He didn't get a hold of the assistant? It sure as hell sounded like he did...sorry for the misinformation, I'll change that.

    I'm sorta give and take with Howard.

    I tell people I'm a Howard fan and they react like, "Oh, you like listening to porn stars getting spanked?"

    I actually usually turn the channel when those kind of interviews are taking place, but he is by far the best celebrity interviewer out there and Howard is at his absolute best when they're just talking about whatever.

    There's a reason why Sirius had 600,000 subscribers before they signed him and now they have $8 million plus and just bought XM and that reason is Howard.

    That 100% described my feelings for both Stern and Jim Rome. When Rome is doing his "schtick" I hate him. When Howard is doing his porn shit, I hate him. But there's nobody better out there for interviews and shooting the shit.
    Agree totally, M-G.

    Saying you like Howard Stern for the celebrity interviews is like saying you read Playboy for the articles, seems to me.

    Howard Stern is indirectly responsible for Colin Cowherd, Screamin A. Smith and every other talk-radio douchebag who feels the need to shout or say something as outlandish as humanly possible in order to get ratings.

    Therefore, fuck Howard Stern.

    Um, I do read Playboy for the articles. Some of the best writing out there. And I'm not a big fan of completely airbrushed girls, might as well be robots.

    At what point in that tape does he quit the show?

    Just found this tidbit online:

    On Thursday, Lange resigned and Stern accepted. Perfect timing too, because Howard isn't live on Fridays and is on vacation next week.

    It was a sad day when the Howard Stern show stopped being on TV. I miss the Wack Pack.
