I don't get it, I just find him vulgar.

I don't think it's an age thing, as I know a lot of people my age who think he's great.

Maybe it's a straight guy thing?

Yeah, he's pretty funny, and used to be good for a few laughs on the way to school. Too bad I'm not able to listen to him anymore. Did anything he say ever offend me? Sure, but that is when I just start listening to something else.

I found him vaguely amusing while he was broadcast here in Toronto...but the 10 minutes of broadcast then followed by 20 minutes of commercial ads turned me away.

Maybe now that he's in outer space, the quantity of advertisements may have reduced.

I do know for a fact that there will be a response from Lnglive1011yyz very, very shortly!!

He's a vulgar asshole who makes fun of retarded people. I find no humor in his shtick...it was midly amusing a loooong time ago and only in small doses.

But if you think your idea of "hearing about" big titted women makes for good radio, more power to ya.

I enjoyed him for about a month as a teenager. Howard Stern is like any other controversial media talking head the likes of O'Reilly and Franken. There is always another choice for one to listen to or watch, not paying attention to them is the best way to get rid of them.

I think there is something wrong with the way he acts. If I am correct,I think
he is 50 now and has a 20 year old daughter. I wonder if he would like it
if people treated his daughter like he treats women. I am no looker but
he might be the most unattractive man on TV or radio. He needs to grow up.

No ads on his show on Sirius at all.

This morning was the first time for me to hear him live. Before he switched to Sirius, I only had his t.v. shows as a point of reference. His show never made it to the Atlanta market (was long rumored though).

Is his show vulgar? Yes
Is his show childish? Yes
Is his show funny? Depends on what you find funny.

I listened to a good chunk of his show this morning (missed the first hour or so due to forgetting he started on Sirius today), and will probably find myself listening to him every morning (and if I miss anything, I can catch the West Coast reply on the other Howard channel).

I find his sthick very immature and not funny. I feel he insults women, the handicapped and others. Now without the need to filter his language, he will get worse and will even turn his hard core audience off after a while. I would rather hear some good Rock music than some blatering fool.

He said this morning that even though he can get away with now, he's going to try not to use obscenities on the air. A few slipped out, but I doubt he'll do nothing worse that let out the occassional F-bomb and the various names for female genitalia. He even played the radio edit of Eminem's "Lose It".

Just read in the paper that the show will have some ads, just not to the extend that his old show had them. They said that his old show had about 18 minutes of ads per hour, while the new one will have about 6. Only the first show today would be ad-less.

I used to listen to Howard Stern on the radio when I lived in PA. He was pretty good, overall but He'd get on my nerves after a while and I'd turn the radio to something else.

I have a 30 minute bit of Howard Stern and Andrew "Dice" Clay arguing on the radio (Howard kicked his a*# - figuratively speaking of course)

Shoving the straight agenda? Funny.
The same could be said for the gay agenda, but I digress.

Quoting Dtwclipper (Thread starter):

I don't think it's an age thing, as I know a lot of people my age who think he's great.

Howard Stern is paid to be a shock jock, so he's going push the envelope to deliver what he's paid to do. I used to find him funny, when his show was farting, porn and vulger references. It was funny, but then he went all political, and the censors went crazy with his show. The past year really dove to boredom with the fact they just basically talked about "how great it'll be when they go Sirius", and really went away from what made the show funny. I had bootleg copies of his specials Crucified By the FCC, Butt Bongo Fiesta, and US Open Sores. They were funny then, but I would pay to subscriber radio to hear that stuff. Not worth it to me.

Jeez guys, you should really unwind your panties. I was being sarcastic, hence the dry humor without smilies.

i have a buddy who went out and bought the whole satellite radio setup for home and car...........just to be able to listen to him. wow....unreal.

I just don't get the point of naked porn stars on a RADIO show. I don't get the point of getting a retarded midget laid by a hooker, yet again, on a RADIO show. I just don't get it. It seems like Howard is there only for his own enjoyment.

If my memory serves me right. Years ago there was a big push to censor music lyrics. And, again if my menory serves me right, the person spearheading the action was Tipper Gore a.k.a. Mrs. Al Gore.
Personally I feel that there are more people on the left who want to see Howard Stern silenced than those on the right. I think the attack is coming from the left with the help of the media

As far as howard goes I have listened to his show since he started here in NYC on AM radio. And he has never said anything that I found to be repulsive. He may be the king of all media but I feel that he is a media god on the same level as Rush Limbaugh, Bob Grant and Michael Savage.

GOD BLESS AMERICA !!!!

Ditto to all above.

I met the asshole at a NABET convention in LA at the Biltmore Hotel in 1978. I attended a "Listening Party" for an up and coming group called "The Fixx". The F'n guy wouldn't shut up, was loud, told a CBS records A&R guy that he wouldn't play the record because the food was shitty and he didn't get enough "blow". I could go on and on. He makes Rick Dees look like a gentleman (Dees is another major radio sphincter). I don't understand how assholes like Stern can succeed.

Well, I'm going to don the asbestos suit and admit I enjoyed listening to Howard during the morning commute.

Did I think everything was funny? No. Was he in bad taste? Frequently. (Calling Air Florida after the 737 crashed into the Potomac to ask what was a one way fare from DCA to the 14th street bridge was one example. But it WAS funny.) But the prank phone calls (like the one to Peter Jennings during the OJ standoff) were priceless, and he has a keen ability to puncture the pomposity that is rampant among US entertainment elites. And when he wasn't on a topic I found amusing, I simply turned him off. All in all, he was a hell of a lot more interesting than 99% of the crap on US commercial radio, and I'll miss being able to break the monotony of a crappy DC commute.

Unfortunately, he picked Sirius, and I'm an XM subscriber.

And Westy, he's apparently got George Takai as his announcer, so I suspect he's going to be an equal opportunity insulter....  Wink
