    I want to say thank you. I have spent many hours becoming familiar with the characters on the HSS and it is hard to stop caring about them. I have just reached the point where I feel abused by Sirius and Howard Stern and cannot make myself spend money on the service any more. After about a year of struggling with the decision, I finally cancelled my subscription last week.

    Thanks for posting about the major events in the lives of the owners of the F U money, the sycophants, the mentally ill, the mentally handicapped, the substance abusing lost souls, and the suckers who own the company that would allow one of their major players work his passive/aggressive game to the point that they lose a major piece of their revenue. I will not hear any of it first hand any more.

    I'd been a subscriber since July of '05 and I cancelled about 3-4 months ago and now listen to NPR Radio for my morning commute.

    If I hear about a bit on here or watch that I want to hear I know how to find it.

    It kind of feels like that at this point. I'm sure it won't take long to totally move on.

    Gee, what are you gonna do with that extra 10-15 hours per week?




    Lifetime sub, and i haven't listened in 2 years. Just keep up with the train wreck on here, you may find yourself enjoying the show again (sans listening).

    After 2 decades, it is a hard habit to break! I reupped my subscription because I cannot behave like a dignified human being without it sitting in traffic.

    Because of this board and the listening thread, I heard a couple of shows live this week since way before Artie left.

    I will say that I do enjoy Will and Jason's Back Office Radio Show on Thursdays from noon to 2pm. It reminds me of the honest and candid HSS of the old days. :D

    I almost NEVER neg anyone. However, it was me that said "you don't need to be rude to new members".....my iPad jammed and pos repped you before I could finish....gave you a shitload of decorations BY MISTAKE, and didn't get to sign my name.

    I only hope Karma will step in and someone with more rep power than I can negate my mistake.

    Grow UP. You were new here once too.....

    I got a lifetime in 2006. I can't bear to listen to Howard anymore, he has become such a lying asshole. The Stiletto 2 records the shows and I never listen, unless I hear about something worthwhile here. If it wasn't a lifetime I would have cancelled this year.

    I spend most of my time listening to NPR and the amazing shows they provide.

    Reps to the OP. Well said.

    I like NPR a lot. I have a 40 minute drive to and from my job so I listen quite a bit.

    I just want to know who the girl is that does the announcements in between shows because I love her voice.
    I have a very mental image of what she must look like... :c

    I was a huge fan from the early 90's. Went to great lengths to hear the show when there wasn't any internet to speak of. Defended my fandom to people who hated Howard by saying you have to hear the show to get why we love him. He's honest! He says what we all are thinking. Etc.

    Went out and got Sirius like all the rest of us did, wanting to hear the radio that the fucking FCC wouldn't let us hear. He had to have thousands of hours of bits to bring to uncensored radio in the revolution. Well...we got thousands of hours of "the tapes"( of which they just repeat the same 300 hours). We got about 7 months of really great radio, and then Howard became Hamptons Howie, and gave less than a shit about doing a good show. Creative bits became history. Writing was left to Sal and Richard doing phony phone calls. The guest list dried up faster than Lisa G's pussy. The one fun element, the news team was shut down early on from covering anything about Howard's life.

    Eventually, the loyal, long time fans, who were sick of the hypocrisy and bullshit got pissed on by our former hero.

    I hung in to the end of the first contract because that's what I had signed up for. I cancelled and never looked back. At one point I could never have imagined not being able to hear the show in the mornings. When I ended it...it really wasn't that tough to do.

    Lately i feel like a real sucker for paying Sirius/Wiggy to stuff commercials up my ass and it's causing me to really resent whats left of the show.

    I used to be a 24/7 Stern junkie but mostly i just pop in and out evey couple of hours to see whats going for a second or two then head over to youtube for my Howard fix.

    My subscription has lapsed and I haven't renewed. I still listen though and it's just a bad habit. I like the shuffle the most when I get to hear Artie. Like Spazz, I flipp between that and NPR for my entertainment. Not ever going to pay again for it though.
