    Here’s a tweet from a John with leaked audio of Howard. The fake profile thing is clearly said in jest. All he’s saying is that they’re developing a “core team” to try and get big name guests back on the show.

    People who would cling to that one minute clip from what was probably a two hour meeting are likely very similar the person who leaked it, Stuttering John. Also, it's been out there for several weeks now and no one gives a shit (because they aren't that stupid).

    He's in trouble because he thinks his audience wants to hear him talk to lady Gaga. His hypothetical is the exact problem with his show.

    I don’t think the picture is fake. I think he’s trying to be funny with the creating fake twitter accounts thing. Listen, I’m no Howard apologist. The show is a shell of what it once was, and I hope he bows out when this contract is done.

    No one is saying the picture is fake. The show has been in decline for a while now. Not shocking given the fact that it’s been going strong for over forty years and he’s like fucking 65 now. The rumors of its demise have been going on for the past twenty of those though, and I still enjoy it although I’m getting older too. Things change. Look at this fucking board...most of cringe at what it used to be. The show has changed as well.

    The fact remains though that Stuttering John is a desperate attention whore who will say anything for his ten seconds. So he feeds into people who wish death on the show. But it probably still generates $150-200 million a year which is why Sirius sucks his dick every five years in exchange for about 100 days of work.

    I’ll be one to admit, 10 years ago I listened to every show, had on demand, I got AGT tickets when it was in Tampa. Now I barely listen. No interest in listening to the Ronnie sex tips all day.

    for what he's become, absolutely. I pity you if you tune in to an "evolved" Howard, anxiously awaiting his 8th interview with Maroon 5 followed by a call from Marianne from Brooklyn and another call from someone (who definitely isn't in the back office) saying how they can't get enough of his Maroon 5 interviews. his whitewashing of the show is especially heinous and I'm not talking about Billy West doing Marge Schott, just anything remotely interesting vanishes if you're even lucky enough to get a segment to be played anymore from pre-2012 regardless. people have caught him editing Doug Z Goodstein out of stuff to say nothing of others and good luck hearing Artie or Jackie or KC or John or Billy, those segments are ultra-rare now.

    I'd have a ton of respect if he just said "I'm not that guy anymore" because that's fine but when you edit and erase your past to try and mold a new image I think that's garbage. He doesn't embrace where he came from, he does everything in his power to hide it.

    I thought I disliked all the Ronnie schtick until the Swinger Brent schtick started. That dude's every move belongs in the "Why are People with Down's so Cocky?" thread. I'm not a big Shuli fan, but listening to him turn Brent into a whiny schoolyard bully is mildly entertaining.

    Maybe the show isn’t what it once was but it’s still the most entertaining thing on the radio.

    Howard’s a shill but I’m still laughing out loud most days when I’m listening. Don’t @ me

    I fucking love Benjy. Believe he really fucked himself by making light of the seriousness of his latest blunder. For whatever reason, he’s got this false sense of security. When management heard him schticking it up while being lectured, they must have been irate. Don’t think we are going to hear from him for a while.

    He’s just so fascinating to me. He was so good when he had the drive to go out and create content for the show. I always find myself wondering how much of Benjys notes Howard actually pulls from during any given show. Because he def believes his value is higher than it is in all reality. His comment re the book—where he was dead honest when he contended that he deserved more credit for providing questions for Howard’s interviews—told me all I need to know. He’s lost touch w reality a little bit.

    I can’t lie I quit listening about a year ago. Sternthology began playing shit from like 2015 instead of classic stuff I was too young to hear back in the day; really pissed me off.

    Tbh I listened to so much sternthology on the app I got to hear most of the classics but it’s still better to keep replaying them, not like it’s possible to get tired of or remember everything from the old days especially with one listen.

    They really could use another meathead like him instead of purely weirdos on staff. I hate Benjy the most but apparently he writes a lot of good stuff from what I’ve read on here.

    Benjy and Ronnie could die in a horrible accident and I wouldn’t give a shit. They are both audible Aids. Shuli other than Underdog stuff is in the same boat.

    So got a new car and it came with XM free for a month. I’ve listened to Stern occasionally now and then and enjoy the show. Think I want to take the plunge and get a package. What’s a price point you think I can get Sirius to bend to? Know they negotiate.
