I was so excited 8 years ago.
I feel like a fool.
in other news, HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAVE MATTHEWS!
That was a good day.
You ARE a fool!
It is not about the money, Robin!
Diedre Imus has a whole scad of glamour projects Robin.....
Holy fuck, wasn't that something? I didn't do a fucking bit of work during the first week of broadcasts. Everything, even the technical fuckups, seemed like magic.
Dave Matthews sucks balls.
The biggest bullshit ever was that he went to Sirius so he could be free from the FCC. If Infinity ponied up the money, he probably would have stayed. The fact of the matter was Sirius offered him stupid money and Howard knew that his terrestrial popularity was fading (he was not #1 in most of his markets and dropping each ratings books in a some) and the the non-sports talk show format was fading in general. He knew he had to go for the cash grab while he could.
And his "I got into radio to change the way the format was done" crap was bullshit too. He wanted to be a regular DJ until he started to hear Steve Dahl and Bob Grant and a few others and copied their format.
Since it's a birthday, I want a present or two: Can I take my basically non-functional, won't get reception in the SF Bay Area (!!!!) piece of crap Sirius Radio and throw it at Howard? Please? Oh, and I want my subscription dollars back through 2011, which is when I cancelled.
It's like we're all a bunch of reformed cult members...
We have one working radio out of 5. Only way we listen is thru radio app these days.
If you remember when stern first got to Sirius he cared about and took calls from people having problems with the shit Sirius equipment and shit customer service.
Those were the good ole 'I'm a partner days'.....
he was working for the subscriber bonus back then. Of course he cared if people had problems with the product because every subscriber who canceled because they hated the product or service would be one less subscriber towards a big payout.
maybe he'll do a special ISDN line show tonight.
Feeling as used as a street whore...but getting my $$'s worth out of the dozens of other non-SHIT channels besides H100
My, oh my - how far the show has fallen since then.
