It's been three years to the day since Howard started broadcasting on Sirius satellite radio. In that time a lot of great radio has been made, a lot of profanity has been unleashed and the dump button has only been used sparingly. I felt that although Howard wasn't in live to do a show on his third anniversary, it should be noted on this message board what the cold hard facts were concerning what has transpired in those three years. No judgments...no axes to grind...just the facts of the matter.... 2006: 179 live shows 2007: 169 live shows 2008: 164 live shows 2009: 4 live shows Total: 516 live shows In 2006 there were 2 practice shows in January that I haven't included into the totals, 1 Film Festival live show that wasn't actually a "proper show", also not included. There were 17 Friday Shows and 18 Master Tape Theater episodes, all not included in the overall totals. In 2007 there were 53 Master Tape Theater episodes not included in the totals. There was also 2 Spotlight Specials; one on Billy West that ran two days and the other on Jackie Martling, which also ran 2 days. Both specials were repeated later that year. There were 8 Mammary Lane shows. The year also featured an entire 5 day week of Staff Picks with 1 day of Fan Picks. There was a 2 day special on the London Shows. There was a 2 day special featuring the Music from the Howard Stern Show along with a 1 day special centered around the Music and Guests of the Beatles.

They rounded out the year with the first installment of the 5 day special, "The History of Howard Stern". None of these shows are included in the overall total of live shows.
