A Sirius Topic...

For those of you that have Sirius...

What do you think of Howard Stern's show? Also, do you listen to Bubba The Love Sponge from 3pm-7pm EST?

For me, Howard has never been better! Finally, the questions you want to hear don't have to be skirted around with stupid talk for the FCC. I think his show is the best it has EVER been!

I never knew Bubba before he came to Sirius. Evidentally he had quite the following in the Tampa area before Clear Channel booted him off the air. It took a few shows, but I am a fan of his too...he is quite a bit more vulgar and offensive than Howard. Plus, I dig his "Bubba Speak" that takes some studying...like, "Jones" or "Mcgillicutty" (my T-shirt is on the way) but I like him too...in a non-faggot way! (Line from Bubba's show)

What do you Sirius subs think?

BTW...I love all the sports and music too! I will never listen to regular radio again unless I have too!

yeah, well when you miss your local radio station's tornado warning
and twister rips you from your car and hurls your body through the woods, leaving little bits and pieces in each tree, you'll wish you had
listened to real radio. :vent:

Well, you already know that I listen to Howard. Bubba fan also.
Love the Jazz station. Listen to Coffee House and several of the Alt stations. What I have found recently that I really like is the classic radio station. I like listening to The Green Hornet, Dragnet, The Lone Ranger, etc. Good fun. Even got to hear The Thin Man last week.

I LOVE SIRIUS SATELLITE RADIO. =D> =D> =D>

Well I heard recently that Howard was pissed at his fans, because he anticipated more to convert from "free" radio to "paid" radio. I've been a Howard fan for years, but if you ask me "he sold his fans out". By going to Sirius, his fans now have to pay to listen to him. Before they could listen to him free. So to me, he's milking his fans by making them pay and putting MORE money in his pocket. Nothing wrong with making money, I'd do the same thing. But, he can't get pissed at them either for not be willing to pay to listen to him. Just my .02.

What you heard was a vastly mis-quoted statement. He was talking about his 'mental' problems and said that in his mind 4 million wasn't enough. If it had be 8 mil, he would have thought it should have been 20 mil. No number would have been enough in his mind.

As for selling out his fans, it had been years since he was able to talk like an adult and do the show he wanted to do. Opera can say the same things and its okay, but Howard was getting fined millions of dollars. Any real fan has either followed him or will soon. It's pennys a day for everything, not just Howard.

It's in the right forum...can't you formulate a response without swearing or using potty language!?

Larry, Finney is right with his answer...Howard was mis-quoted and is very happy with the 30% of the fans that went to Sirius. Think about that...if a business introduced something to the market and got a 30% response right off the bat then it would be considered a huge success...funny how the media can twist it in to the 70% that haven't switched (YET). It is well worth the money and it is so much more than Howard and Bubba!

I never cared for him when he was on E. I haven't heard his radio show as I've never lived in an area which aired it. IMO, it's definitely not worth paying for but the only talk radio I've ever enjoyed was John Boy and Billy when I lived down in Georgia. I still wouldn't pay for them. I love my music and if talk is on the radio, I'm changing the station anyway!
