    it sucks that he is going to satellite radio because i can't afford it. So any other stern fans here? If your not a stern fan don't post.

    Hell yes.

    Save up, cause his show will be better than ever w/ no FCC regulations. Plus I'm pretty sure He'll have his own channel. So you can listen to him any time.

    Yea, it sucks...

    Because here in Columbus, Ohio, our local affiliate has already pulled the plug on him & replaced him w/ some lameass bit, that got kicked off the air in Texas somewhere.

    I spend more on impulse eating at Taco Bell per month than the monthly subscription fee for satellite radio. Of course, YMMV . . . .

    The equipment can be had super cheap if you look for sales and rebates, best I saw so far was about $40, and a monkee can install it.

    If Stern is that important to you, consider getting it.

    Seriously....how so? What is going to be better?

    As Eric Moesle suggested, if Stern is really that big of a deal to you, you'll find a way to come up with the money to get the equipment and a subscription. $50 for a receiver, and $15 a month.

    I would hope that being able to say and do anything he wants to will make the show more entertaining.

    According to another thread here at TB, Stern is getting 3 channels and has hired Bubba the Love Sponge for one of them.

    Oh yeah, I'm not a Stern fan. :spit: :)

    Yep, Howard had Bubba on Wednesday and talked about it. He's also considering hiring Danny Bonaduce. Danny was on Thursday groveling for a job.

    As for Columbus, he played clips of the PD at the Columbus station taking calls about him, and Howard made mincemeat out of him. Apparently Columbus is refusing to pay him for the remainder of his contract. So not only does this station suck now, but they're weasels who welch on deals they make.

    Well...

    thing is, this local station is a small time "mom & pop" kinda radio station. And, they've been served notice by the FCC, with a notice of inquiry. Because they're small, they dont have the funds to handly any of this FCC crap. So, they're doing what ever they can to "appear to be in compliance", so they can avoid further actions against them.
