    First NYC audition is Wed April 11 at noon. Would Howard give himself only two hours to get ready. After four hours of talking on the radio then going to a two a day audition. Just putting on Howard's wig and makeup will take 1/2 a day. Howard is not working next Wed. I will be shocked if he comes in to do four hours and then going right to the AGT New York studio.

    Maybe he'll take off Wed and come in on Thur instead.

    If Howard working two day weeks bothers you enough to post about it, be prepared to post about this every week for the rest of his contract (except for those weeks that he takes off entirely). I agree that it's shit, but remember for Howard the Sirius gig is only a "part-time job."

    There's some many projects initiatives going on around these channels, Tim Sabien is working on. He's going to get it all straightened out as soon as he finishes the latest round of Riley negotiations!

    I had used an XM portable player to record shows and listen while out of my vehicle at work. I realized that my week's worth of recording yielded only 2 days of material and it wasn't even enough to fill that time after you weed out the commercials.

    I used that as inspiration to call up and cancel my XM account. They offered me $86 for a 1 year sub but I declined as I have a newer vehicle with free Sirius and can use the droid phone and Sirus app if I'm out of the vehicle.

    I find however that I am listening to other talk shows more and more as the Stern show becomes more and more half-hearted. I also don't need to hear a daily suck-up-to-a-lesbian show. Howard has become so transparent (wants to erase his history of mocking them) and phoney (just imagine the goofing he does on their appearance in private!).

    I would avoid this company as a stock, the technology is quickly becoming obsolete. I can listen to digital quality music on my phone via pandora and other sources. I stream it straight to the radio in the car, and I have the advantage of carrying it with me whereever I go. So now even the car mounted units are quasi-obsolete. At least at current monthly rates. $18/month for the life of a vehicle (say 10 years) is about $2500 with the time value of money factored in. Add in $400 or so in initial cost and you have a $3,000 option in a car.

    I saw a thread at another place awhile ago allegedly from a Sirius employee/fan that said Howard is recording an extra 1/2 show on Mon. and 1/2 show on Tuesday to be put together for Wednesday's show which explains how he can film AGT on Wed.

    Several shit shows like the chatter are already recorded so I can see Wiggy doing the above. Letterman has been doing that for years by taping his Friday show on Thursday. If true then Stern's shitting on us AGAIN.

    at this point i don't give a damn whether he's on or not. truth is, i only listen out of habit.
    although i'm not in their demographic i found myself listening to O&A this AM and was amaaaaaaazed at the energy.
    i enjoy alex bennett and some of the other political talkers.
    i can now pronounce howard as being completely irrelevant.

    i just hope AGT turns into a ratings disaster and a blow to his ego.

    It's going to be funny when Bobo calls the show on Wed and is on hold for 4 hours thinking the show is actually live.

    Bobo will laugh and say Howard you are the greatest and a genius for recording your show since AGT needs you. The worst thing about those calls is that Howard knows its a harrable kiss ass scripted call yet he continues to pick up due to his fragile ego. :facepalm:

    Do the othe HSS employees still come in and twiddle their thumbs when there's no show? Man, what a sweet job for them, even if it's all coming to a crashing end.

    Two words are all that is needed to describe what they'll be up to:

    Sal - piss porn

    JD - Canine porn

    Richard - Gay porn

    Will - Sports talk

    Jason - Cupcake Wednesday

    Steve Brandano - who cares?
