When Robin Quivers laughs, the New Yorker listens. The magazine recently conducted a laugh analysis and determined that the on-air eruptions of "The Howard Stern Show" co-host pretty much resemble Gaul--they're divided into three parts: "a low rumble, conveying impending dissatisfaction; a cacophonous chuckle, conveying complete dissatisfaction, and an outraged squeal, which can mean anything."

She's bright, articulate, well-educated--and she works as the sidekick to raunchy radio personality Howard Stern. The question frequently asked of Robin Quivers is "Why?" Why would she choose to be partnered with a comedian who has been accused of being sexist and racist? Why does she sit there and take it while Stern makes jokes about women, blacks and other minorities? "I chose to jump on the bandwagon with someone I felt to be incredibly creative, and we do a comedy show," Quivers explains.

Despite the ponderous bleatings of such pro-censorship organizations as the National Organization for Women, the people of Los Angeles will continue to listen to Robin Quivers and Howard Stern in ever greater numbers ("Howard Stern's Partner Explains Why, Oh, Why," by Claudia Puig, Dec. 13). Besides providing us with great entertainment, Quivers and Stern are performing a public service by refusing to knuckle under to the Federal Communications Commission and its blatant violations of the First Amendment.

Steve Allen has a 1st Amendment right to express his opinion, but in this case, he is just flat out wrong! (Valley Perspective Interview, April 25.) In the "Golden Age of Comedy," not only were there no dirty words, but Andy, Opie and Aunt Bea lived in the only town in the South with no black people. Game shows were fabrications, rigged by the sponsors, to attract a following, a fact brought to light only by a more recent film and PBS documentary. Allen advocates supporting "the good."

I am really shocked by the actions of radio station KLSX management concerning the National Hispanic Media Coalition boycott of the Howard Stern show in light of Howard Stern's tasteless, derogatory comments about Latino singing star Selena, shortly after her murder. KLSX General Manager Bob Moore's editorial decrying the coalition boycott as ". . . trying to limit our free choice" was pathetic (Calendar, April 27). I have been a fan of rock 'n' roll music for almost 30 years, which puts me into the category of a fan of classic rock 'n' roll.

Don Buchwald is never heard on the air and there's no picture of him in Howard Stern's photo-filled bestseller "Miss America." But he's a growing presence in the media world as the agent who makes the deals for the most controversial guy in radio. The publicity-shy Buchwald's wheeling and dealing will play a pivotal role in 1996 as the raunchy comedian seeks to expand his media conquests beyond radio, books and the E! cable channel to movies and possibly late-night TV. Stern describes Buchwald as "advisor, savior, business partner" and credits the agent with taking him "out of the gutter of radio with the dream that I could cross over and sit on the throne as the King of All Media."

Being in the closet as a youth, "Every day was a test and there were a thousand ways to fail ...," he said, speaking at a Human Rights Commission gala in Seattle, as seen in video posted by TMZ . "And when you failed the test, which was guaranteed, there was a price to pay. Emotional.
