Before delving back into his review of the best Stern Show moments from 2017, Howard paid tribute to longtime radio news anchor Lou Adler who died in December at the age of 88.

Howard recalled growing up on Long Island and first listening to Adler on WCBS-AM in the car with his father. The New York radio fixture had a booming voice and Howard recalled his seemingly impeccable diction.

Howard reflected on the shift from terrestrial radio in light of the rise of satellite, podcasts, and streaming services. With a panel of staffers in studio, he also wondered which SiriusXM channels everyone was listening to lately.

Jason Kaplan said he often turns to Jam On (Ch. 29), while Brent Hatley is a devotee of Ozzy’s Boneyard (Ch. 38). Ronnie “the Limo Driver” Mund explained he has a wide array of musical interests and often turns to the Coffee House (Ch. 14), the Pulse (Ch. 15), the Blend (Ch. 16), and selections from decades ranging from the ’60s to the ’90s.
