Back before I had Sirius I used to listen to O&A, and they weren't too bad if you know what kind of show you're getting: a bunch of guys who just sit around and talk on a mic. My friends and I could do a show like theirs, and I guess that made it interesting for a little bit. Howard almost every day has a porn star or hooter girl in their studio, while O/A just have Stalker Patti getting naked...ask me which one I'd prefer haha. O/A have some funny segments, although I barely listen to them anymore. Like when they went on MSNBC (i think) and talked about the Ramone and Frunkis show...all made up but still got on tv.

Stern's show is good because he's Howard Stern and he's able to attract a good group of characters that we actually begin to care about. O/A don't have that, at least not IMO.

Like someone in a previous post said, they're just radio personalities, I don't understand how people base their lives around this "feud".

The feud exists because both Stern and O&A make money off it. The maintenance of this tribal feud energizes their respective fan bases, playing off an apparently innate tribal instinct within the young male. It is this tribal loyalty, not dissimilar to fraternities, gangs, sports (both fans and players), technology allegiances, satellite radio fora, etc., that can keep the core listeners from straying.
In the dog days, people look to Sirius.
