Admittedly, most of my posts here are of a negative nature, but I have to admit that this week's shows were full of energy like the old days, and were interesting overall. Unlike other times when Artie was missing, the show moved forward Monday and Tuesday with strong material, not just filler stuff. Artie's return provided for good content, as well. Even Howard's telling disgruntled listeners to cancel was refreshing and honest, even though it could be taken as insulting to some. Maybe they were told by management to step it up, or perhaps they see the writing on the wall, and fear for the future of the company....who knows. It was just refreshing to hear some effort put into the show, and I hope it continues along this path.
