The One with Howard's Farewell


















So today was Howard Stern's last day on free radio. A very large crowd gathered in New York to bid him farewell. I will really miss him! At least until I get Sirius which I will be doing before January. I have an impending birthday, and I always buy myself a pair of shoes. This year I'm going to get Sirius instead because I can't get through the morning without Howard. I know a lot of people don't like him, but I think he's brilliant. Not only is he hilarious, he's also very intelligent. I especially loved listening to him during our last presidential election. I also think he does great celebrity interviews 'cause he asks questions that others won't. And not just sexual stuff. One of my personal favorites was his interview with Vincent Gallo, the director and star of The Brown Bunny and Buffalo 66, both of which are films I recommend. If people would just get their panties out of a their asses and listen to his show, they would see that there's actually a lot more to it than just farting and strippers. I also think the FCC has gotten out of control. If you don't want to listen to something, then don't. If you don't want to see sex and violence on the tv, then change the channel. It's a free country! I think it's really sad that Howard is being forced to move to satellite in order to express himself as he wants. So, goodbye Howard, goodbye Robin, goodbye Artie, and goodbye High Pitch Eric, Jeff the Drunk, Wendy the Retard, and Bong Hit Eric. Until we meet again.

Sorry folks, I don't know what that comment is about. Heaven and Hell is a blog that belongs to some friends of my friend Mav, and their blog is not about religion.

I don't listen to Howard Stern on a regular basis, but i totally agree with you. He should be allowed to say whatever he wants. i think he's going to do wonders for indie radio.
And by the way - Michele sent me.

Lish, Regarding the FFMB. That stands for Friends of the Friendless Marching Band.
I had a look at your blog and, unfortunately you do not qualify to be a friendless site but you can be a Friend to the Friendless.
To sign up, choose an instrument and state it on a comment on my blog. Then come visiting with us on Friendly Fridays. Also, you can nominate friendless sites (0-5 comments/post).

And hey, I can relate to your blogaholic problem. I have written a few posts on it myself.

Take care, Lish. Nice to meet 'n greet you.

at least finally he can talk about something other than how much he's persecuted. that's when i started to tune him out.

nothing is worth paying for radio, though. i'm that cheap.

Looks like that first comment was comment spam. A pox on everyone who engages in this pathetic activity!

I suspect Stern's move from terrestrial to satellite radio will drive subscription rates sky high. Bob Dylan also signed a satradio deal this week, and I suspect there will be more to follow.

There is much more that I want to listen to on satelite than just Howard, though I do love him. Martha Stewart is also on Sirius. Yes, I like both Martha and Howard. I'm a very versatile person. Because of my work, I listen to radio all day, and Sirius will be a good investment for me.

I've never listened to Howard Stern. His movie was wicked funny, tho...

He may be what saves Sirius. It's operating at huge losses (so I hear) and needs a major jump in subscriptions to stay alive. Between him and Martha, they might pull it off...

Here via Michele's :)
