A listener called in to suggest that Howard not simulcast Bubba the Love Sponge's show as he said yesterday he might do. Howard replied that he decided to not do the simulcast, but that he enjoys Bubba's show. In fact, Howard said that he called into Bubba's show yesterday to take part in an intervention pertaining to Brent, the show's producer, who is bald but has sideburns. Howard explained that men like Brent who have outrageous hairstyles do it in order to attract women, and that sometimes people have to step in and tell them that it simply isn't working. Howard said that Bubba did some investigating yesterday that he really appreciated. Howard mentioned a clip he played during yesterday's broadcast that featured a radio "expert" who said she thinks radio should be free.
Howard first pointed out that free radio will always exist, before adding that Bubba discovered "the expert" not only gets just 79,000 listeners a month, but that she does her show with her husband, who has second-billing to her. To illustrate how few listeners the woman has, Howard noted that his show received more than 400,000 calls on Monday, even though they're broadcasting from a relatively new medium. Howard added that, thanks to Bubba's findings, he discovered the critic had no business being called "an expert." Howard proceeded to play a clip of Ned, who makes prank calls for Bubba's program, phoning into the FCC to complain about U2's Bono being allowed to say the f-word during an awards ceremony.
