    Guys,

    Could we buy an ad to run on Imus' show or O&A's show that promotes Zoo Za Zoo and Emily's new album? We could buy a 15 second ad that doesn't include any of her music (no copyright issues) and have someone read: "Howard Stern's daughter Emily Stern has an amazing new album out with the hit song "Zoo Za Zoo". Please buy it today at ... ".

    Would that be illegal? We're not saying anything bad about it at all. We're just giving out information about a publicly offered product.

    Would someone start an account to which we could all chip in and raise enough funds to buy at least 2-3 spots on a radio show?

    I like the way you are thinking. I wonder if we could buy a live read by Imus. That would be classic.

    I'm pretty sure it has to be approved by the product owner :(

    No. This would be fully legal!

    I'm up for spitting in some cash, but I wonder what O&A will think of it?

    I'm game. Not sure of the legalities though.

    Funny idea, but what would be the point? Howard wouldn't address it and, if it was an ad on Imus, nobody'd hear it.

    Besides, even if we could raise the money for a single O&A spot (Sirius might not even sell single spots) it wouldn't happen. The money's better spend on a subscription fee at the Saloon. This zoo za zoo thing has legs and it's entirely thanks to this place.

    If it was on Imus, I'm sure Howard would go on some long rant about his "enemies" and wouldn't call out anyone by name but we would know why he's so mad.

    Honestly, I think that If you genuinely presented the zoo za zoo thing to o&a, they may run with it. A chance to ping Howard indirectly. Plus, nobody has a copyright or trademark on zoo za zoo... It's up for grabs.
