One of my many guilty pleasures in life is Howard Stern. Does anyone else listen to him on Sirius?

On Thursday they had a quite the drama going on with Artie Lange (on-air Stern sidekick) attacking another Stern show employee and then resigning from the job and going home. Of course they are on vacation for the next 10 days, but it was interesting radio, to say the least.

Anyone else catch it?

Artie is a messed up dude. This is his 2nd physical altercation in the past few months. He should be gone. I'm sick of his act anyway. Falling asleep ... chronic absenteeism etc. etc.

Who's Howard Stern?

Arguably the MOST popular talk radio host of all time. Inarguably the 2nd. (Rush Limbaugh)

I would agree. When ever he gets in trouble his attitude becomes so messed up as well. I think Artie is really funny, but his constant complaining about the schedule, sleeping, and asking guests if they will sleep with him for xxx dollars is getting really old. A part of me thinks he has been trying to get kicked off the show for a while now, and is just doing one ridiculous stunt after another to see what he can get away with. Did you notice that they didn't play the replay on Howard 100 yesterday? They played Mondays show instead.

Yeah that was really lame. Do you post on www.sternfannetwork? If you don't, you should. It is a great fan site. It is a much different atmosphere than RZ though. :lol: Bring your hardhat if you're going to post on that site. You get the hang of it, though. Some really good show discussion goes on there.

They didn't replay the show on Howard's orders. Pretty cool coming from Mr. No Censorship himself, huh? :rolleyes:

They've got the whole thing up on youtube. That's where I heard it b/c I missed the initial broadcast.

Opie and Anthony >>>>>> Howard Stern

Just sayin'.

One of the best clips I downloaded from Stern was the "Artie Lang" story where he talked about his gambling and Mad TV. It was pretty funny.

What did they say about him?

Tucker went on there and was telling one of his stories from his book and they called him on just about everything he said. He left the studio and flipped them off on the way out.

It is on Youtube, but I won't post the video since some of it is offensive.

I am a fan of both O and A and Howie--yeah I'm wishy washy--O and A though will freely admit they owe a lot of their careers thanks to Howard...unfortunately wife has a car-only Sirius unit, so I didnt hear the incident...anyone willing to share what happened and who it happened to?

Not to get political, but I enjoyed them laying into Jesse Ventura about the 9-11 conspiracy stuff. I think my favorite O and A bits were when they were playing clips from "Grizzly Man" and commenting about it and whenever Anthony does "Angry Vince" McMahon.

Some of the stories are a pretty good read. I did read that he is looking to finance a movie on the Austin Road Story from I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell.

The (Almost Banned) Miss Vermont story is pretty good too.

Howard is good radio, but I think Opie & Anthony are better.

The bit O&A did a few years back where they tricked the schizophrenic stand-up comedian "Schizo Bill" into doing his routine a dozen times was probably one of the funniest things I've ever heard in my life.

Anything that will strengthen satellite radio is A-OKAY in my book.

To be fair, you've gotta listen to a show like Stern / O&A / Imus for a little while. Half of the humor on the show is lost if you don't have some familiarity with the players involved, their histories, and how they react to things. To understand that, you've got to at least listen for a week or so to pick it up.

Howie is a legendary radio figure---love him or hate him, you have to give him his due--he and Rush Limbaugh (not a fan, just giving props) spearheaded the explosion of talk radio. (I know, that could be a good thing or bad, depending on one's listening preference).

Back before I had kids big enough to understand the words, and it was free radio, I was a regular Howard listener. The days when Stuttering John and Billie West and Jackie were on the show just classic. Especially when they went after Bababooey and Jackie or had Stuttering John interview famous people with inane questions.

The Stern show is on vacation this week, and today they did a best of Stern that was all Stuttering John interviews. It was great. Since I only was able to listen to him for the last two years on Terrestrial radio, its cool to hear the old stuff. When ever they replay an old show though, you really see how much less they take commercial breaks.

As for people that think all Howard is about is lesbians, sex, drunk dwarfs, what not, you should really sit down and listen to it. While that is a portion of the show, its hardly even half of it. Most of it is them busting each others chops, getting into arguments, or just talking about random stuff in the news. I think the best time to listen to it is between 6 AM and 8 AM. Personally, I don't enjoy the portion of the show when they make fun of mental retardation, so I typically choose to turn my dial at that time. But when the show is going good, I sometimes will sit in a parking lot for 10 minutes cracking up laughing and dreading to turn off the radio to get on with my day.

They replayed that the other day on Master Tape Theatre. That was very funny.

Isn't he on the Tonight Show now?

Yes, Stuttering John is on the tonight show now. I have heard he makes around $500,000 a year.

I am not sure if this attachment works or not on here but here is an audio of Howard promoting XM before he signed with SIRIUS. Very funny hearing this. (fifty second segment)
