    Default DLR review...Entertainment Weekly

    Page 15 of the current Entertainment Weekly magazine...
    "Talk Radio Wars...Who's winning and who's losing after Howard Sterns's move to Sirius. David Lee Roth...where to start? The technical difficulties-like dropping phone calls- can be forgiven, but what really rankles is that the winking metla icon of Hot for Teacher has become a scolding libertarian ideologue. And he's boring. Roth spent more that an hour of his first outing interviewing his aging Uncle Manny. (Seriously.) This seems destined to be yet another embarrasing footnote to Roth's career." Grade "D".

    OUCH! It goes on to give Adam Carolla a "B" and Howard Stern an "A-".

    So, maybe DLR will be free to go into studio 5150 later this year!

    Wow, way to give a guy a chance. You might think that they could've waited a few weeks to see how the show was doing before making a judgement.

    I will agree though that I thought his Uncle Manny to be a bad choice for his first guest. I know some here were entertained but I thought it was a bit of a snore myself.

    I was working in Philly last week and heard DLR's show. First, following Howard Stern in a major market is tough. The one observation I had and would pass on to Dave would be this. Howard Stern made his guests and co-workers the show and never centered the show on himself. Dave is smart, intelligent and has a one liner for everything. I think with a little tweaking here and there he'll be fine.

    Dave, give it a rest. Quit your day job, call Eddie apologoze, kiss his ass, behave when you are around him and make more money on one tour than you ever will during your DJ career.

    He was pretty good last year as a fill in on WZLX in Boston, but he is one of those destined to only be a "fill in", much like those career substitute teachers that he is hot for.

    DLR needs a lot more time before the critics should judge him. Stern wasn't that great to start with either, not by a long shot.

    Dave's first guest should have been Sammy Hagar. Ratings would have been great!!

    You're probably right about that, but somehow I doubt Sammy would agree to that interview. He said after the 2002 tour that he wouldn't work with Dave again.

    Dave needs to be given more time. Totally agree on the Stern thing. I listened to Daves show a few times, and hes not the best, but no D either. He seems pretty comfortable now, id love to see how he is a few weeks from now.

    Zeo, i love the avatar. Im a Cubs fan, and hate the white sox with a burning passion.

    Listened to some of the Podcasts for the first time this morning.
    I like Dave - comes off as smart, funny and can tell one hell of a story. I am sure it's not everyone's cup of tea, but for a quick hit each day I enjoyed it.

    I listened to Dave online last week and thought it wasn't too bad, but I think he should be trying to get the vh reunion going.

    LOL, when's the new Van Halen album due out?

    How were those three new singles? Critical masterpieces were they?
