I think I'm the last one to realize this. I knew he really was taking a lot of vacation days...but he only has to work 111 days a year (according to suck-ass Stern68)?????? That averages roughly 2 days a week all year!! (and they're 4 hour days) I know I'm one of the suckers who still listens to the show---although it's only occasionally. I do a lot of driving and music get kind of boring and I guess I still listen hoping for the occasional funny bit (obviously I'm sorely disappointed most of the time). And I do like listening to some of the old stuff. There's a lot I never heard. So----- he doesn't mind that subscribers that originally signed up when he was working 5 days a week are now paying the same amount (or maybe a iittle more) but he's now working 2 days a week. Again, I realize I'm one of the last ones to figure this all out and I feel like an idiot. God I"m so close to canceling my sirius subscription. But I also like so many of the music stations and they're commercial free. And I do listen to some talk shows too (I'm incredibly embarrassed to admit I sometimes listen to Judith Regan and Dr. Laura.....Dr. Laura only because I iike listening to her incredibly idiotic callers)......again, it helps with my driving boredom. Sorry for the boring rant but I really can't believe Sirius and Howard can screw their customers like this. I honestly think they should not renew his contract------- I think I'm one of the last Stern subscribers left. There's no way in hell he has 12 millions listeners.
