Pretty sure the "shuffle' series is still programmed, as far as 'episodes' go. There's probably a pool of bits that have been gone through and placed in que that are selected. They are 'random' but probably selected ahead of time as far being listened to and chosen to be played. I've never heard the same thing on shuffle really, but I have heard crossover stuff that was on other specials.I noticed he hasn't been on this week. Last night was a re-air of the Stern Show from 1-10-06 (Satellite Years) and a previous night this week was Stern Show Shuffle.
I wonder if Stern Show Shuffle really is truly random or is there some sort of order? If someone would recognize a Jackie Puppet segment that was previously played, is it the same segment after that the next time?
