Double A called in to ask Howard why he can't talk about his move to SIRIUS, yet Infinity can air commercials for one of his replacements, David Lee Roth, just about every break. Although Howard claimed the spots don't bother him, Fred had a different opinion. Fred commented that Howard's seat isn't even cold, but Infinity execs are already rushing in another body. Fred went on to say that he understands Infinity's concerns about not wanting Howard to push SIRIUS on the air, but at the same time, he thinks the company should promote people like David during the other 20 hours each day that Howard isn't broadcasting.
After Robin mentioned she didn't like the commercials because they infringed on the little world the show created, Jason Kaplan pointed out that the company should've at least made some spots thanking Howard for his years of service. Howard agreed, adding that Infinity should've created a spot with celebrities who had been on the show thanking him and that the last well-wisher could've been David Lee Roth. Howard reasoned it would've been a nice sendoff for him and it also would've allowed David to do some subtle promoting. Artie mentioned that he thinks the company should play the ads all they want because they're going to a better place and there's no reason for them to be hostile or angry. Tom Chiusano admitted that they should've thanked Howard, but Howard told him that such an ad would be too late now since he had to bring it up.
To Wack or Not to Wack
Tom noted that he didn't put much stock in what Double A was saying about David Lee Roth because he's a Wack Packer and not a typical listener. This statement led Howard to another topic that was discussed by the super fans last night regarding who exactly is in the Wack Pack. At first Howard noted that Double A is merely a super fan and not a Wack Packer, but changed his mind after being reminded of some of the stunts Double A has pulled over the years. Artie pointed out that he didn't think the lottery-winning Double A could be qualified as a member of the Wack Pack, because he isn't in financial desperation, which he feels is a criterion for inclusion.
Howard added that Sal used to be a Wack Packer because of the way he was obsessed with Gary, but has lost the title since becoming a member of the show. Howard went on to say that people like Ralph and Bobo also aren't Wack Packers, because they're not "wacky" enough.
