It probably wasn't. Here's how mostly likely went down.
Howard: Somebody told me Bubba was shot out of a cannon on Friday. Hoo hoo, that Bubba is so crazy. Anyway, Bobo you're on the air!
Bobo: Howard if you and Beth had a threesome......
I'm willing to guess howard was feeling very uncomfortable when bubba started talking salary. esp given how he gets the kings share of money out of everyone at that company.A caller brought it up and Howard said that he did not hear it because he was doing something.
Robin then chimed in to say that she had heard it and that it was amazing and he was quoting numbers and salary. Howard sort of laughed to say that Bubba was crazy and then that was really about it.
Howard did say that he was upset about something at Sirius again and Howard agreed with Bubba that they're paying way too much for "talent" but that was it.
Howard then moved on and he never played clips or anything. It was sort of disappointing.
Howard gets the king's share, as it should be. He certainly brought enough people over to pay for his $500 million.I'm willing to guess howard was feeling very uncomfortable when bubba started talking salary. esp given how he gets the kings share of money out of everyone at that company.
I'd like to think that but:Howard and Super Agent Don Buchwald might be working behind the scenes. Just a thought. Or hope.
pretty much says it all.Howard is about Howard. Period.
Not to mention that Bubba and crew did TWO SHOWS/DAY! What the hell more can sirius ask for? BTLS was the hardest working show by FAR on satellite radio.And people that prove themselves and build a decent (to put it mildly) audience shouldn't be expected to take a massive pay cut if they return.
I'm sure Sirius, in their infinite wisdom, is just assuming that they'll find somebody cheaper than Bubba to take his place. Because, obviously, the fans won't care.bubba announced on his show, that he didn't catch any heat from sirius management regarding last friday's show.
