That would explain Bubba's inclusion of O&A in his rant. That's pretty shitty. I've tried listening to them and I just don't like them. I'll stick with Ellis in the afternoons.
I have only heard O&A on testicular radio, and they were awful.

I did hear a rant of them on youtube regarding howard and one of them was doing a howard impression with was pretty damn good tho.

Even if they are awful and they are, I tried listening to the show, Howard needs to calm down thinking he can censor other talents.

Look at Howard's Leno rants. Now imagine if Leno worked for the same company and had the CEO censor Howard? It takes out all the fun.

I really just don't get Sirius anymore. I don't get why Howard isn't backing his "revolution" unless it was always just about cashing in his stock and retiring. Maybe Howard saw an opportunity to exact millions out of a company, took it and is now about to ride away. Because if he cared ANYTHING about the future of sat rad it seems like he'd be screaming his ass off to change things.

He's done with Sat. Listen back to a couple of weeks ago when he was talking about internet radio. He sounded very into it. He even mentioned it would be like having his own little company.

All the money would go to him. I just wonder how he'd do it. He already puts little effort into his show, imagine if he had no obligations. I think he'd also lessen the amount of hours and days a week.

That would explain why he's obviously more interested in using his radio show to promote Howard TV than anything else.

Howard has treated this gig as some sort of bonus for his years in radio. After that second subscriber number hit in 2007, he's been in coast mode.

I recall after a recent vacation where listeners were complaining and Robin said, "What people forget is all those years we worked even on Christmas."

They clearly think that Sirius is a reward for everything they've done previously. I don't care about vacations if I'm not paying for the show.

Bubba says he likes all you guys.

Ok, I'm not sure about that, but I think he would. Just wish he would sign up here and post. ;)
Recruit him next time you are down there... unlike SFN, some of us *do* like him here :)

Depends on what it costs, how many shows he does, and what else is included (like perhaps Bubba and Ferrall joining him).

Hell, maybe they can finally make good on Sirius XM's broken promises if they're given full creative control.

There ya go, right there. Howard is the boss of HIS universe. No Mel, no Tim, nobody higher up. The three shows can broadcast whenever they want to, and people could listen live, or download for later.

If Bubba wants to go live at 10, and finish when he's done, so be it.
If Howard wants to go live at 2, and finish whenever he wants to, that's the way of the new universe.
Ferrall could go live at 8 PM (or whenever), and finish when the last game of the night is done.

i still listen to his testicular show regularly. its not bad. as long as they don't do too much nascar and MMA stuff. ellis isn't strong enough for me to listen to full time. I don't care how many F-bombs he drops.

I linked this thread to him. I would bet he loves it vs the SFN one :cool:

No offense, but i'd almost he rather NOT come over here. If he does, I foresee a shitload of everyone (including haters) coming over, like it was with his forums and, to some extent, SFN.

Sometimes, smaller is better.
