The Top Ten

1
Howard Stern Show
He invented the type of radio that all the others on this list are copying. He offers true reality entertainment. Unlike the manufactured "reality" shows, he shares his deepest secrets and weaknesses with the audience. No other entertainer is that honest and on display.
Howard is all that they criticize him for: he's arrogant; he's crude; he's not plesing to the eyes; he's somewhat misogenistic; he's somwhat racially unclear; and he is overpaid. With all that being "true"; I see an intelligent, determined, thoughtful, hard-working, scrupulous man.
The Michael Jordan of radio.
Had a #1 book, movie and radio show all at the same time.
During his peak on terrestrial radio, Howard Stern was pulling in almost twice the numbers Rush Limbaugh has today.

2Rush Limbaugh
Rush is the man! God Bless America! And God Bless Rush!
Howard the duck number one, proof that idiocy rules the World.
Many good talk show hosts, but none does a better job then Rush.

3Elvis Duran and YMorning Zoo

Best Crew - Carolina, John, Danielle, TJ, Sceery, Craig T, Froggy and of course Elvis Duran. Plus they have the best phone taps just check out Joanne Gordan.


4Opie and Anthony (feat. Jim Norton)
Best show on any type radio. The Ron and Pepper Hicks Show is right there too. Anyone who says they copy Stern clearly stopped listening along time ago and is just trying to ride a wave long past.
These guys and Ron and Fez are the best shows in radio.
I've listened to a lot of talk radio, o&a is the best

8Car Talk
You learn a lot more about everything, not just cars. Fun show every time.

9STONE & Digital Dave Radio Show
Most funny and entertaining show I have heard of late. The ironic thing about them is, you can hear something on the Stone & Digital Dave show and days later, Howard Stern, Elvis Duran or Imus will have ripped it off like it was their original idea.
Once you start listening to them for the day, you just can't stop!
I heard them for the first time talking sports. It was refreshing no agenda just entertaining.

25Nights with Alice Cooper

What a great radio host! When he was discussing certain liquids in cans he said this classic line: "I wonder what would happen if they put Coke (Coca cola)in a CAN! Now THAT would be something! "

H3LL YEAH! This is like the best radio show EVER! Alice is funny and plays awesome music. For me it goes:

2. Undergroud Garage
3. Bax and O'brien (funny ass bastards)
