    So FINALLY Will the screener...let this caller Ken thru....(if he was a true random caller or a ringer??) sometimes I think it's all pre-arranged to address the negative fan feedback re: Robin's mystery illness :rolleye:

    He called in the first 30mins...
    asking "where's Robin" and why isn't she in the studio??
    What's with all the commercials and live plugs???

    He was GREAT! Asked the questions I WANT TO KNOW and we all do!!!
    Then of course Gary interrupts the call to say there's so many "Robin Conspiracy" theories online....(did he mean here & the SFN???)
    Howard was getting pretty pissed off...
    of course he NEVER answered the Robin question......neither did she!

    Robin had a chance to make a statement....but said NOTHING!

    oh...and Howard confirmed what I said many times that he PILES ON THE LIVE PLUGS during RObin's news because he can't get to them during the show!!! So he interrupts Robin every 2 minutes to read a live plug :rolleye: HE RUINED Robin's NEws IMO!
    He's trying to say the show doesn't have as many commerical breaks as Terrestrial Radio???? YES IT DOES!!

    So of course he ended the call telling Ken to CANCEL YOUR SUBSCRIPTION!!!

    OK!! then maybe we all should!

    ps...nobody answered the "where's Robin" question....Howard just said the show has "changed"...:rolleye:

    peace & love

    Can you really ruin a fake news reporter that reads headlines for the first time while on the air?

    Thanks for posting about this. By the time I turned the show on, Ken was just finishing up, with Howard telling him, as per usual, to cancel his subscription. I was wondering what Ken had to say.

    I refuse to punish Sirius for Howard's actions. That's his goal.

    Robins news was ruined when it became a news segment and ceased to be a comedy segment.

    Remember how they used to play "Hey How's Your News" during Robin's news? and "Las Vegas"? That was so fucking funny, but new Howard doesn't make fun of retards.

    Thanks for the update - I cancelled a few weeks ago.
    What did Robin say during all this?
    And if Gary referenced conspiracy theories online, then clearly he is talking about Dawgs. Clearly.

    SiriusXM should fine Howard each time he says that people should cancel their subscription. He is hurting his employer.

    Btw. Howard gets a bigger cut of commercials in the new contract. That's why there are much more commercials. 60-80 cut for Howard.

    This.

    For a long time (basically since Artie left) the news format is

    Robin stumbles over a headline and the the opening 2 sentances of a story
    Howard makes a short comment (the rare times he does anything more it's likely an abortion or gay rant)

    Robin stumbles over another story and gets half of it wrong
    Howard does live read

    BTW can anyone post a clip of this call

    I find it funny that Gary mentions the rumors. He can only be talking about this place or sfn becuase there is absolutely nothing reported on Robin anywhere else

    I wonder if they have a meeting and Howard says to Fred no more How's Your News clips, or is there a retarded memo sent to everyone?

    When Jackie was on the show, the News was one of the best parts of the show. I would actually look forward to listening to the news.

    If you didn't put this in your posts every fucking time I wouldn't mind reading your posts. Get over yourself.

    I think that Jennifer Holloway wound up being one of the volunteers who worked with the re-tahds. We can't talk about retards anymore, or the blaeks, or midgets

    To me the funniest was that Gary was told "don't let it be known" Robin is not in the studio because "it slows the show down.":hilarious:

    Do you remember how funny the news was when Artie was there and Gilbert sat in on the news? Holy shit that was some good radio.
