    On the 5/29 or 5/30 show Arthur briefly referred to a "suspension" and then corrected that to a "probation", explaining why he was refraining from a particular line of risky jokery.

    Can someone fill me in on that please? Were the boys actually put on some kind of "probation" for crossing a DirecTV line?

    It was the whole Linsanity controversy. They got in trouble for making "racist" remarks about Jeremy Lin. I know there's a thread here about it, I'll look for it later.

    Thanks, kev and nicksgt!

    The article makes it sound as if Artie is the racist one, but I really think it's Nick who's got the issues here (despite his apparent friendship with Chris Rock). He makes some snide (and not funny) remarks from time to time. Artie seems pretty even-handed (and yeah, part of that is I just find him much funnier).

    "Indefinite probation", huh? Is that like double-secret probation??

    Terrestrial radio is a shit show, and satellite is a grimy walled garden. Podcasting is the only way out, as long as the FCC (and "special interest groups") stays the fuck away.

    Artie is amazing?
    :jj:

    Just wait until Artie looses his ability to call broads whores.
    The show will be fat and flemmy Lange steering every conversation to food and drugs.....:bed:

    Huh? I didn't use the A word...

    If you don't like Artie's shtick I guess the show's not for you. Unless you like sports scores and Brick D's comedy/hosting enough to compensate....

    To me Artie manages to be funny until he (a) gets bitterly angry or (b) slurs his speech and falls asleep. The former has happened a couple of times on N&A but I don't think the latter has... yet.
