  • Rima Fakih Miss USA 2010…and Howard

    By Rob Eshman

    Howard Stern brought stripping out of the shadows and into the main stream, featuring strippers of all types, shapes and sizes on his radio show from the earliest days.  In the beginning mainstream media dismissed this as crass and inappropriate.  Now there are stripper aerobics in... read on

  • Mario Almonte Gets Howard Stern So Right

    First of all, welcome to LA Howard. 

    This blog started a year ago to examine Howard Stern’s contribution to society.  At the time, everyone from my wife to my more intellectual friends to many readers thought the very idea was a joke.  Howard Stern?  The guy who does fart jokes and... read on

  • Howard and Hef

    By Rob Eshman

  • Howard Stern Goes to Shul

    One thing Howard Stern understands about radio is that it is a macho medium. It’s a man’s world.  My friend Teresa Strasser, who used to co-host the Adam Carolla Show on 97.1, pointed out to me that a woman DJ doesn’t stand a chance in drive time.  It’s cultural, but it’s... read on

    It’s Wednesday, and all America is looking forward to Superbowl Sunday.

    Except for me. And Howard.

    I always liked Howard, but when did like turn to love?  When did I go from fan t acolyte, from someone who realizes how good he is to how important he is?  When I first heard... read on

  • Howard’s Healthy Ego

    By Rob Eshman

    January 28, 2010 | 7:54 pm

    One of the criticisms you hear about Stern is that he has an out of control ego.  I think a better term is healthy.  Howard’s healthy ego is a lesson in itself.  And the lesson is this: ego is good.

    People say we live in a narcissistic society, that we are the twisted children of a... read on
