My mom likes Howie but I'm partial to Jay. Jay usually makes sense and he is quick and funny and is extremely well spoken.

I've only listened to Jay a couple of times and that was maybe 2 years ago. My car radio is locked to WRKO and Howie is the standard listening on my 1 hr homeward commute.

I listened to Howie for years, then switched to Jay.

But Jay lost me last year during the election cycle with his constant negativity about Bush's election prospects. Also, I really got tired of listening to him bash Bush on Iraq.

So now I just switch back and forth between them.

What is 'Boston'?

Is it something special?

Who's funnier? Howie!

Who's more entertaining? Howie!

Who's more informative? That's a toss up.

Let's face it Jay is all politics, he was against W the first time around & being a friend of Kerry he was AWOL this time around.

Howie is more than just national politics, he has a much wider depth of knowledge overall therefore he is more entertaining imo, but he has way too many commercial breaks.

You got to love the Chump Line & Police Blotter Fridays.

Howie is funnier, by far. Jay is too much of an ego to be funny. I rarely listen to Jay anymore because of his rants against the Iraq war. I am beginning to suspect he feigns his support for the military.

Howie is self deprecating and sounds more like a regular guy. I like the cast of characters on Howie's show too, thus proving that he doesn't fear sharing the spotlight with his staff.

It's Howie Carr hands down!!

When ever I am close to my home state, I have to listen to Howie!
I wish I could tune him in here in Buffalo.

I had been listening to Jay since the first day he was on, but he recently lost me because of his incessant rants about Iraq. I don't mind him disagreeing with policy, but calling it "Iraqnam" is absolutely disrespectful to our troops. I don't care how you frame it, that's unnecessary. He talks about how much he supports the troops, but doing to that level is beyond the pale.

I have never heard this Carr fellow, but I can tell you Jay is NOT funny. He is also not nearly as smart as he thinks he is. He is boring, pompous, arrogant and stuck up. He is also a supporter of legalizing drugs which is something that all intelligent people know would destroy this country. So In other words, he sucks.

I was a Masshole for about 5 years. When I lived there started out listening to Jay, but he lost me with his constant tone of defeatism and negativity. Then I switched over to Howie and found it a much more entertaining and upbeat way to spend the commute home. Howie has a great comic personna and doesn't take himself too seriously.

I can honestly say that out of a very, very small handful of things I miss about Massachusetts, listening to Howie Carr is near the top of the list.

Howie, by far.

I love to listen to Howie, 'cause he's real. Severin is so full of himself - all about the bods he saw at the gym, and the gals at the hotel bar.

And having lived in Boston during the Irish gang wars of the 1960's, I'm fascinated by Howie's online archive of mug shots and crime scene photos!

(Howie reads FR, so: Hi Howie!)
