I should have added that to my list, too.

I turned off today's show as soon as I recognized it was some ancient rerun.

Totally agree.

Why would you take into account another person's preferences when the thread is solicticing only your personal preferences? And how can you take into account what you don't know? The creater of the thread was solciting personal peferences not a consensus. As another poster commented, a comparison of the lists is interesting because what causes one fan to switch the station or turn down the volume doesn't bother another fan. But if 9 out of 10 fans turn off the station or turn down the volume when Sal calls up yet another Chinese restaurant then that says something. This forum is about an exchange of news, likes and dislikes and other thoughts. If it turns into some kind of a cheering section, rather than an exchange of thoughts, I'm outa here.

Elliott Offen.

Channel changed. Jesus he is annoying.

Oh, and no Friday listening anymore. Mastertape theater isn't cutting it for some reason.

Please return the Friday show. That's a great program.

In the FM days I would switch off anytime I heard the phrase, "Turn around and let me see your ass". I never found those segments to be funny and I can't remember ever being turned on by any woman/girl/skank in the studio who was in the studio to promote a website. Sometimes my knee jerk reaction to switching the station off proved to be a premature mistake, especially when the skanks would take part in a quiz or some such nonsense. I also felt wierd about listening to that sort of radio at my old job.

Cut to one new job later and I can listen all day without any fear of people being offended by 'sexual' content over the radio. I don't turn any part of the show off, but the Sybian is over played in my opinion, regardless that truckers or whatever are rubbing one out to it.

I tune in to hear them bullshit and to hear a type of interview that I could never hear anywhere else, radio or television. They make me laugh, that's why I come back day after day.

Since I record the show and listen on my ipod, I really don't change the channel, but there are a couple of things that make me go for the FFW button...

1. commercials (duh)

2. most of sal and richards phony phone calls

3. chicks getting naked (seems that if a chick comes in I can skip forward 30 min and she'll be on the sybian, then I can skip another 10 min to get to the end of her segment)

4. the football picks are starting to get annoying - we get the premise that elliot and alice are unstable and easy to provoke. really, WE GET IT!

5. some celebrity interviews. for me those are hit and miss. celebrities can be boring a lot of times.

Like others have said, the best parts of the show are the gang sitting around a bullshitting and whatever comes out of that. While there are plenty of "WAAAAAA"-eligible threads on the board right now ("WAAAAAAA I don't think there are enough threads about taking fridays off... WAAAAA!" for example), I don't think this is one of them. Talking about your least favorite parts of the Stern show is like talking about your least favorite features of your new Ferrari. Sure, you may like some parts of it better than others, but it's still a fucking Ferrari!

I've had it up to here with the National Enquirer guy ordering food from the Chineese resteraunt.

Somebody saying "hello" 17 times just ain't worth sitting through.

Repeat phone scams tend to get me to change the channels unless they are favorites like Crazy Alice or that recent one with Bigfoot and Blue Iris. It's a good time to flip to see what's going on during the music.

There's only one bit that I can't stand enough to get me to change the channel, and I can't believe no one else has mentioned it.

The Artie and Crazy Alice yelling at each other... it has clearly jumped the shark and goes on way too long. And, it is obviously fake/staged, at least on Artie's end. I haven't seen Beer League, but based on these staged arguments where he's just baiting her, I assume he ain't that great of an actor.

It's definately gotten overboard but I still love Alice. She doesn't need prompting. Even when she is normal she is great!

I love artie but FUCKING HATE when he gets into it with alice. It's so forced on his part and his insults aren't even funny. He's just on auto-pilot to get a reaction from alice. And even worse is when he goes on so long with alice that robin starts to need some attention so she gets into it with elliot. and she is even worse at it! Thank god that the football picks are only a few minutes per week.
