its like howard shut up. isn't this the same guy who has shills calling in every day to plug HTV and is always trying to hype up bullsh*t HTV, but he's mad that sal and richard sell optional pics on their website?? even after they said, they will gladly take pics with audience members with their own cameras.

and if howard really feels this way, he should really be yelling at bubba. cuz he's selling so much merchandise and trinkets, its ridiculous.

Canada Eh!
Sometimes, my boss gives me shit for coming in 5 mins late or taking 10 mins extra for lunch. She does it all the time.
Also, I think somethings are exaggerated for the sake of the show. After all it is enterainment.

Bubba on the other hand, would sell you anything he could to his fans just look at that vest that Hank bought! ;) but thats kinda his schtick...

Whats funny is the people that call in and brag about buying the mud flaps and vest. I did buy a hat though and its pretty nice. I think Sal and Richard are just trying to earn a few extra dollars and I don't see anything that wrong with it.

i think the whole schtick howard pulled this morning was rediculous. Who gives a sh*t, who gives a f*ck if they sell t-shirts. At least they don't constantly plug it like HTV.

Howard "i don't ask my fans to buy anything" really? REALLY?! Satelitte subscription and HTV. :clueless:

howard really thinks he is helping those turds out but they are probably right to play grab-ass with anyone willing to buy any of their crap...howard's retirement day + 1 = the end of sal and richard's "career" in comedy

When I had Time Warner I tried HTV and it was like $9.99 a month. The next month it went up to $14.99. That was a huge increase. I called Time Warner and they said it went up at the request of the vendor. I canceld that and Time Warner in general that day. I'm sorry guys but $14.99 is way to much for that.

but why is it a rip off? it sure ain't a necessity in life and if someone chooses to pay for it then they get what they get until they think it sucks enough to bail.

The difference is that Howard has control over what HTV does and how it reflects on him. Despite the dislike of it here, I'd imagine there's lots of fans that really enjoy the HTV aspect of things. Like Sirius is without the FM constraints, so is HTV compared to the E! show. If you like it, its worth the money.

RichardandSal selling any tchotchke they can print their name or face on is out of his control and its really him that makes their crap desirable.

The professional picture thing doesn't seem that bad to me. They do it at every sporting event, amusement park, etc. My boss has this great pic of him on the ski slope that was taken by a pro and they handed him a card and he checked out their site. It's purely optional.

In the middle of being chewed out for daring to make extra cash, Sal explained to Howard about his seven maxed out credit cards, his pile of growing bills, etc. Richard added that all they were trying to do is to make enough to cut website expenses. Unfazed by this, Stern continues to tell him how selling products cheapens his show. No, Howard - asking fans to pay for the show you don't care much about , and prioritizing HTV cheapens your show plenty.

Howard may not have sold T-shirts, but when he was at NBC, he did road shows quite a bit. One venue he continually ran was at Club Bene in Sayreville, NJ. I attended one of these shows, and it wasn't free, that's for sure. The show I attended took place in between his firing at NBC and his hiring at KROCK. He also made tapes around that time (Butt Bongo, U.S. Open Sores) which were endlessly plugged throughout the show. Throw in the fictional flop Private Parts, the books, the albums, and the different covers on both just to squeeze more cash from his audience, and you've got someone who's fleeced his audience more than Imus, Rush, and every other DJ combined. By the way, did anyone ever get the golden ticket from the Private Parts soundtrack yet?

Howard should be embarrased that his writing staff on what he calls the greatest radio show ever lives in poverty, but being the type of person he is, he couldn't care less. . Sal would be better off quitting and finding another line of work. At least then he would be able to provide for his family. He should be ashamed of himself. He's basically depriving his children of things just to work his ass off at "the best job in the world" for his cheap, bony boss. What an asshole. No wonder his wife bangs guys she works with.

What are you going to do in two years? Oops, typo, I meant, what is Sal going to do in two years? :D

You guy's should see DLM's posts in support of the key grips on Dr. Phil's show that make a fraction of what the "Dr." himself makes... Those are a riot!!!

Or when he rips apart Walt Disney for not paying the Asian animators a double digit percentage of the studio's gross...

Always looking out for the little guy...

:wave:

What DLM posts are you talking about? His "principles" forced him to unsubscribe on March 11, remember? So a guy as honest and open as he would never be complaining about something he no longer has.

I'll be listening to some other morning show and picking it apart, most likely :)

Sal will be unemployed, and after a short time, realize he wasted the "earning years" of his life away working for a guy who probably won't remember his name two weeks after finally retiring.

I'm hoping Sal will realize this before Howard retires for good. On the last day, Sal should come in the studio and rip that shoe polished, curly, mess of a wig off of El Cheapo's aged skull so Richard could shit on it.

I'd tune in to HTV to see that. :jj:

If this were a Dr. Phil or Disney forum, you just might.

But to tie the two togther anyway.....How long do you think a key grip (or any position) would hang around just to have the "honor" of working for Dr. Phil, if they were going broke doing so?

Most likely not as long as Sal has stayed. Probably one of the reasons he stays is the potential to market himself. We know how that went today. :jj:
