    From MarksFriggin'

    Howard said that Jon Leiberman was there with some headlines. Jon came in wearing his Howard 100 News jacket. Howard said that's one of the few things they can still afford. Howard said their budget has disappeared and he'll be talking about that in the next few weeks. He said he's really had it there. Howard said they invited him to the Springsteen concert and he's not a happy camper so he won't be going.

    Howard asked Jon if that's Steve Langford's old jacket. Jon said he believes it is. He said that it's a little wrinkled in the back. Howard said that shenanigans are afoot there. He said he's just trying to create a channel for fans who enjoy their programming. He has no other agenda. Howard said everyone loves to fuck with him. He said that the people who fuck with him are the people who end up getting fucked.

    Projecting regarding Beff?

    howard must be putting all his chips in Sirius folding before his contract is up

    I hope Sirius survives and forces him do each and every show he is contracted to do.

    Sounds like Howard thinks he's being audited content wise for AGT mentions while on air What other ways would there be to fuck with him? Unless they are instituting a morality clause into their advertiser's products thus crippling Howard's advert $$

    When you're doing less shows, of course your budget is going to suffer.

    Blah, blah, blahbity-blah...Howard's now "at war" with Sirius, just like he was "at war" with NBC, Clear Channel, the FCC, etc. It's all just fabricated drama to get some kind of buzz going again for old man Stern in the weeks before AGT. The lack of a budget has nothing to do with the show blowing; when he had a budget, he barely lifted a finger to create an entertaining channel.

    If the contract doesn't stipulate what time he's supposed to air a show, Sirius should make him do a midnight show M-W-F

    Frankly, I'm not very happy with either Howchie or Sirius.

    I hear you there. I'm sitting here trying to listen to a music channel that keeps losing the signal. Very aggravating.
    But that's okay, because my movie is almost finished downloading. :hhh:

    Fuck his ass. He didn't do fuck-all with the budget from the first contract, so why would they throw more money at him this time around?

    Forgot about that one... He hates Amanda Peete because she stole Beff's old boyfriend away (the Cougar Town guy that Beff is still in love with) Try to comprehend that logic... he really is a strange, vindictive nut job.

    that bullshit about his budget going to that concert has to be the funniest shit ever.
    He was well and happy that time they did that listener appreciation concert with Paul where there were only 200 listeners.

    Howard's war with Sirius is why we have 2 day weeks and 3 day weeks. He's going to the letter of the contract- and that's it. He is contracted to talk on the air for X amount of hours for X amount of days per year, and that is ALL he is doing. He is putting in ZERO effort above and beyond showing up.

    When is the last time anything came out of those "creative" meetings? Sal and Richard contribute nothing but phone calls to the same 3 tradio show hosts over and over. I don't blame them at all. At this point, Howard is holding everything back as a "fuck you" to Sirius, but really it's a "fuck you" to us the listeners.

    Do you think Howard would have "Abe Kanon" on his channel if he really gave 2 shits? It's complete bullshit is what it is.

    So much for berating Jackie for not doing the best show possible even if his off air negotiations were failing.:rolleye:

    no budget?? the budget goes all into his pocket by his choice. doesn't sirius just pay him a flat rate for his salary, his staff's salary, and the $ to run the channels?

    he MAKES the budget. if he wants more money to go to his staff he would have to divert some of the budget out of his marble bag, and we all know he won't do that.

    so he'll direct his false anger at "the man" at sirius, try to get his fans on his side to scapegoat the imaginary "man" to divert the attention from himself and his marble hoarding ways.

    Howard does not like Springsteen because he is not Jew or gay or pretentious. If it were Elton John or Paul McCartney or Billy Joel he would go.
