Big Grin

I wasn’t a fan but last fall when Howard was in the midst of his battle with the FCC, I became a daily listener. I was fascinated with the fact that a conservative like Stern was taking the Bush administration to task on virtually a daily basis. I mean, this is a guy who in the past had been vocal about his support for conservative candidates such as Christie Todd Whitman, Pataki and Giuliani. I still listen to him because he’s the only broadcaster I know of that is vocal about the federal government’s ridiculous censorship practices, and I am intrigued by his complaints that every other radio and tv personality has been silent on the issue (i.e., too afraid to say anything that would be considered a challenge to the FCC) – which will surely hurt them in the long run because they’re going to have to curb their language even more. The First Amendment is being trampled.

Anyhoo, I like:

Robin reading the news

The Friday National Enquirer game

When “Scott” enters the room, Howard et al are usually bitching at him and they always play the drop of the girl yelling “SCOTT!” That makes me laugh every time.

Yeah, Ally, that drop of Kiefer Sutherland saying "latin…. 'gravitas'" is hysterically funny. Poor poor Kiefer.

Several weeks ago one of Robin’s news items was about a plane crash and she read aloud about the actual crash landing and while she’s reading you hear the 3 Stooges going “nyah, nyah, nyah!” I’m sorry, I found that ridiculously funny.

Don’t care for the racial humor.

The porn star stuff:

I think Howard Stern is at his best doing celebrity interviews.

I don't like the racial stuff at all, like that Daniel the KKK guy I don't think Howard is racist though

I love that tape they always played w/ Howard's father yelling at him -" I told you not to be stupid you moron"

Remember Hank the angry drunken dwarf? RIP

I like Robin, she's supposed to be doing a pilot for her own TV show

I'd like to think that I have a decent sense of humor, but, Howard has never made me laugh, really, and I lived in NYC long before he was a National presence on the air. Sure, if I listened to an hour, I'd laugh once or twice. But when I watch something like The Daily Show, I laugh countless times in 30 minutes.

I'd never say something like "Stern's not funny", he obviously is to many many people. But, for me, he's more cruel and playing to the lowest common denominator than anything else.

I do, however, greatly respect his longevity and his war with the FCC.

He jumped the shark when Clear Channel dumped him, and he started whining incessantly about the FCC and Powell and Bush.

It sucked the life right out of the show, for a long time. He became an insufferable martyr.

Haven't listened since.

I should have added that even if I loved him, I've always been a listen to music when commuting kind of person. Not a big talk radio fan in the first place, especially in the mornings.

I completely agree with No spoken words. I don't find him funny either.

My only Stern listening experience is that at the place I used to work the morning girl would put his show on even though most of our customers were soccer moms with small kids, and she never understood why I'd ask her to change it. Stern can be great for driving customers away!

Something else I heard this morning that's always made me laugh on that show, Wood-Yi. I've seen the real WoodYi guy on the EShow

I don't like some of the Asian things he says, but this morning they had Wood-Yi phony phone calls- that was funny. I don't like Woody Allen so that makes it even more funny.

I think David Lee Roth is annoying -and Adam Carolla, well..boring

By Roger Friedman


Official: Diamond Dave Gets Howard's Job

The rumors were true.

I can tell you exclusively that sometime next month, Infinity Broadcasting will announce that David Lee Roth is taking over for Howard Stern.

The one-time lead singer of Van Halen will assume the microphone in New York and several other markets where Stern's radio show is heard.

Still not set is where Adam Carolla, former co-host of "The Man Show," will be in the lineup, but sources close to the action tell me that Roth and Carolla will not be together.

Roth is represented by the all-knowing, all-seeing Creative Artists Agency in Hollywood, so you know he has an ironclad contract.

The president of programming for Infinity Broadcasting, which owns Stern's show, said last winter that there wouldn't be one person replacing the notorious shock jock.


He was right. Roth and Carolla will divide up the territories so that no one person can regain Stern's monopoly of the airwaves. Carolla will likely have the West Coast.

Now comes the interesting part: So far, Roth has no on-air team assembled. He doesn't have a sidekick like Robin Quivers or any of the other necessary cast members to pull off a three- or four-hour comedy show. But I was assured that's all being finalized right now, and that by the time of the announcement, Roth will be ready.

Last July, there were rumors around concerning Roth replacing Stern when one of the regulars on Stern's show blabbed it in an online column.

According to Billboard, that same regular — Chaunce Hayden — was investigated by the Securities and Exchange Commission because he'd been in Stern's studio on Oct. 6, 2004, the day Stern announced he was leaving his show to go to Sirius Satellite Radio.

What's not happening is any relinquishing by Stern of his powerful mount until the end of the year, and it's not only because Roth and Carolla don't have their acts ready.

Stern's contract doesn't run out until December, and Infinity isn't about to let him go early.

On the other hand, DirecTV — which, ironically, has a deal with Sirius' competitor, XM — should be offering Stern's show soon, if it isn't already.

And Stern already has a presence at Sirius, where he's launching a couple of "channels" under his own banner soon.

Don't expect it to be Stern all the time. He's too smart for that.

My guess is there will be lots of interesting, thought-provoking stuff, at a much cooler level than you might expect.
