Perhaps, but how often is one of those segments aired, every three to six months? I haven't heard one in about two years but I don't listen every single day either.
Plus Howie allows the audience to participate in 60% of the show unlike Jay's 5%.
BTW, when I googled Howie Carr around 1998 (the verb form in that era may have been "altavistaed") about 90% of the material about him on the web had to do with his feud with morons who ride bicycles in downtown Boston. The morons were furious with him, then even as now.
