Now HS is down to a couple of days a week, they are really pushing the archives, we've got Stern Show Shuffle, Mammary Lane, Mastertape Theatre and now Sirius So-Far. Just as well I guess, as show is boring as hell the the mo'.

Yep. I pretty much force myself through the show these days. He seems to really be elsewhere and his 'if you don't like it, fuck you' attitude sucks.

A few weeks ago a friend of mine, a hardcore lefty, organic-food buying, only listens to pre-war jazz sort, out of nowhere extolled the virtues of Howard Stern, declaring him hilarious, perceptive, the whole gamut. Sort of blew my mind. He grew up in New Jersey, I grew up in PA, so we both grew up with this guy on the air. And yet I grew up thinking him an innocuously reactionary, vaguely libertarian distraction, and my friend ... a genius. So it goes.

he's gotten a bit more liberal in the past decade or so ... esp. b/c he's explicitly pro-gay nowadays and has gone after Sarah Palin, Santorum and anti-evolution jackasses.

Yeah, but he's still obnoxious and cynical in the worst way, disguising his sexism and misogyny as a statement on his audience and their tastes as much as anything else. He sort of reminds me of Larry Flynt, in a way, an opportunist just shrewd enough to make me feel even worse about his reach and effectiveness.
― Josh in Chicago, Wednesday, 6 June 2012 01:04 (1 year ago) Permalink
compared to 2012 rock radio host misogyny and sexism, stern is pretty mild. a lot of those attitudes are mocked on the show. the attitudes of guys like ronnie "let's fuck some whores"/the limo driver mund, sal, jd are ridiculed. and there's a balance from stern himself and robin that doesn't happen on similar shows.
shrewd is a fair description, though. stern is always smart about stuff like this, balancing i think genuine discomfort with some on-show antics while also letting things go.
but yeah, try sitting through an hour of bubba's show or your rick and buzzy in the morning on your local fm rock station and then sit through an hour of stern (which will be him talking about reality shows, talking to robin about her medical problems, and a call from bobo).

a lot of old-timey Stern fans call him "Hampton Howie" these days, and spit nails at the mention of his 2nd wife Beth.

Feel like he might unravel a bit this summer, when the live shows start. I feel like he's very nervous about that and is taking it out on his radio staff.

Still only been listening to the occasional show, and skimming even then. I hear Robin did the show from home, tough lady!

"all the young dudes," later used by howard in the karaoke contest
"wnbc, this one going out to dana. had a rough night with artie last night. he sends his love."singing along to "fire and rain," "just yesterday morning, vinnie told you i was with three stippers."
when fred laughs after howard says WNBC after robin says, "don't change that playlist."
"wnbc, this one's for dana, sent in by mr. artie lange over in jersey, on our all request weekend. dana, hope you're listening. artie says he's sorry for the three strippers" and when artie and howard sing "maybe i'm amazed" and howard does his grandma caprio voice before it, "artie, i wanta you to call dana and sing 'maybe i'm amazed'." and
robin singing the first part of that e.l.o. song is so fucking beautiful.

Still stuck on the Stern Show Shuffles that they are putting out, listened to a good 'fight week' style one today whilst doing the housework.
What's the current sitch with Robin? Is she still broadcasting from home? I know it's lazy but I can't be bothered to wade through SFN.

the sour shoes appearance was wonderful and sad. lisa g made him orgasm by touching his shoulders. he talked about going to gary's dad's funeral. wound up hanzi with a gary impression. he explained that he got hit by a fastball when he was a kid and started having "weird thoughts" after. but he seems superficially pretty normal. he's fit in well, riffing on lines from howard. and it's cool to hear howard's genuine fascination with him. i dunno.
calstars, your thoughts?
― dylannn, Sunday, 30 September 2012 07:58 (8 months ago) Permalink
sour shoes was funnier and faster than shuli, for sure. shuli has a history of bringing the show to a grinding halt (see: shuli getting emotional after artie refers to the killers of comedy as the "hackpack").

As far as I can tell, Sour is on the autistic spectrum somewhere, evidenced by his difficulty with interaction (voices, never having had a relationship), his ability to recall facts, and musical talent. He also said he works at a place called 'Autism Speaks.' And on the top of one of his keyboard he had a Thomas the Tank toy, a favorite of children on the spectrum.

i never got benjy and he brings next to nothing to the table as an on-air personality (hard to judge his talents as a writer, since a lot is done behind the scenes, right? so, i'm giving him the benefit of the doubt). shuli just doesn't get the rhythm of the show, has a grating personality, isn't quick on his feet on-air, and his voice annoys me.
is robin back in the studio for the recent shows?
