Mourning Mornings without Howard
I tried, really I did. But David Lee Roth is no Howard Stern. Gave it a few weeks before I made my decision to stop listening, since it wasn't really fair to stop 2 days in (even though I wanted to).
I listened to How-weird and his troupe since his W-ENNNN-BC Days when Don Imus didn't look too much like the living dead, Donna Fiducia was merely a ShadowTraffic reporter and Jennifer Anniston was a Snapple girl. Watched his movie, pay-per-view specials, WOR-9 and CBS shows, not to mention E!. He's like my geeky-cool older brother (you can tell the influence that he had on my little brother :) ).
DLR just doesn't have a good personality for radio. His show is like listening to a college radio station at 3 a.m. Unfortunately, I have decided not to get Sirius... my commute is under 5 minutes, I don't even have a working radio in my car, it's just not worth the expense. So, what's going to "wake" me up in the morning? Jim Gearhart... I think you have a new listener.
