Fans can grow dramatically because they're on free radio. If they are so scary good, why do they keep talking about him? Wouldn't they be advertising Stern? Why give Stern the satisfaction?
It seems that every O&A fan is giving excuses based that they weren't on enough and therefore the dismal rating. Ok. Let's wait for the next and see what happens.
what excuse am i giving???....i stated the fact that Howard is bigger, he is and always will be now, plus he's been around so much longer which gives him that much bigger of a fan base...plus, yes he is good and so is his show......no where did i say he sucks at what he does now. He also was one of the originators of shock jock radio.....now a days they are a dime a dozen so people have MANY more choices of who they want to listen to for their laughs....back in the day it was pretty much just him and people tend to stick to things that they know best and are more comfratable with.
some people don't care that Stern is bigger then life now....i do, maybe you don't....to each his own....why do take offense to that statement??? Where did i say they are "scary" good????....i said i prefer them...that's my opinion is all.
i like the fact that O&A are brutally honest...i like that Opie tells what's on his mind no matter who it offends or if he does they could possibly be kicked off the radio.
and please give it up that O&A ALWAYS talk about Stern....you obviously don't listen to the show enough....i've listened for the most part every day since i got my XM radio back in July and i think they've talked about him about 4 or 5 times for about 15 minutes each time.....is that a lot???? they do a 5 hour show 5 days a week....but i guess that hour and fifteen minutes is a lot to you.
