    Why don't you do a trial period where you let subscribers pay for channels a-la-carte and see who/what is pulling in the most listeners and start paying the various DJs or talk shows accordingly? That out to light a fire under Howie

    They're not interested in that for the same reason the cable companies aren't.

    Cable companies have been successfully fighting a la carte TV for years. But in the end, the NET will bring them down. (Sirius as well)

    Agreed. But I think "the end" is further away than most think/hope.

    True Dat. The media giants clearly see the bandwidth "problem". Content is what they will all be fighting for.

    Have you noticed that every Joe Neckbone who fell of the turnip truck is now producing television content??
