    From today's show recap

    Howard's Fight With Sirius XM. 03/07/12. 6:45am

    Howard took a call from a guy who said he didn't want to bring up a sore subject but he did. He brought up the Sirius XM fight he's been having. The caller said that when he buys a new car he has to buy a new subscription. Howard said all of that money goes to one place. Howard said that people who have XM already they don't want to screw over. Howard said he doesn't get what this guy is saying. Robin said he's saying that when you get a new unit you have to get a new subscription. The caller said you have to pay a transfer fee when you get a new radio. He said that even if you transfer from Sirius to Sirius. Howard said he doesn't know anything about that. He said maybe there's a cost of transferring it.

    Howard said they are one company on the stock exchange and when they talk to the stock holders. He said that they're arguing with him because they owe him bonus money. Howard said they're saying that the subscribers he added were not his listeners but that's not what his contract is about. He said the contract says that it's about the growth of the company. He said that he has to wait for years to get this money. He said this whole case is going to take years to settle. Howard said he's sure that if a judge looked at it he'd win. Howard said maybe they'll get a drunken judge and he'll look at it and give it to Sirius. Howard said that he just goes on though. He said he stayed with the company and he shouldn't have to resign. Howard said he built this company. He said they were on their way out. He said any jack off who thinks that it was because of them that they're still around is wrong. Howard said he's the one who made it all happen. Not anyone else.

    The caller said that there are two people who are responsible for the success of this company. He said it's him and Riley. Howard said that anyone who is involved with his show is responsible for the success. Howard said no one else can claim that they're responsible. Howard said Leon Black came to him and said he had to have him. Howard said he told him that he wanted to be rewarded and Leon said he would be. Howard said if he could pull off a miracle and pull in an X amount of listeners then just pay him for that. Howard said he worked and waited and now he has to sue. Howard said this is the last time he's signing up for bonuses. He said he's going to ask for the money up front from now on.

    Howard said they were suing him at CBS when he left and that takes years off your life. Howard said no one else does shit around there and if they do tell you they do then tell them to get fucked in the ass. Howard said they're having Bruce Springsteen parties around there. He said that they can ''suck my dick!''

    Howard said that he's having a heart attack. He told Robin to get the defibrilator. The caller said he's sorry for bringing it up. Howard said he'd like to get mouth to mouth from Robin. He said the whole thing is a joke. He said he's fine though. He said it's all fun and games and they can take 10 years to do this whole thing. Howard said he's as happy as a clam.

    Howard said he's back to where he was on terrestrial. He's just a worker, not a partner like he was told he'd be. Howard said this is like war. He said he soldier gets fucked. Howard said they should lower the flag when he dies. Howard said he's like a warrior. Howard said he fought all of the battles. Howard said he was told to go out and put Sirius on the map. He did that and when he did they tell him that he didn't. Howard said he just wanted to be rewarded for coming through for them. He said he worked and worked and worked. Howard said the worker is a chump, like him. Howard said he's disposable. Howard said they laugh at him there. Howard said the guys with the money laugh at him. Howard said he can hear them now. Fred played a Cartman from South Park laugh and a Mel Gibson laugh.

    Delusional. And what about the bonuses you got on top of the insane salary you received? All about the marbles, indeed.

    Funny how he says that lawsuits take years off your life. Shouldn't Howard be dead by now? Can't be that bad if you're always suing or being sued by your employer

    Partners are also in on the risk. What does Howard risk? Howard's arrival at Sirius gave an initial boos, but they never gained market share on XM. When the merge happened, Sirius was still the same amount behind. What really saved Sirius were the car contracts. Howard's boost was temporary. He think being a partner is talking up the service on his show. Promoting Sirius to people who already subscribe is laughable. He did an initial media blitz then disappeared. He'd do Letterman every 18 months. Big deal. He cashed in then quit doing a thing.

    Holy crap, is he delusional!!

    He deserves more money....he's worked all this time for Sirius toward a bonus payout...Really, you greedy stereotype?

    Hey Howie....it isn't 1972....people can see how much you have "earned", how much your stations are SUPPOSED to be funded with, and every other aspect of what you've raped Sirius for since signing on.

    Speaking of honesty, where are the "occasional" Fridays off, the THREE channels of top notch programming promised, the road trips, the bus tour,etc. Fucking hypocrite.

    Sirius was stupid to do business with this asshole a second time. He lied to the fans, the company, and it's stockholders.

    Sirius should throw him out on his bony ass, regroup under a different name, and start free of the lying filth that is Stern.

    It's a tug of war as to see which side will terminate their side of the contract first.

    I'm so happy that Howard is miserable about money he does not need and will never get.

    I agree that to be a partner, you have to assume risk, which Howard avoided by selling the stock as soon as he could.

    I still wonder about those car contracts. You get a year free with the car right? Now how many of those people with new cars actually make the leap and PAY after that year is up? I would think the percentage is low. All those car contracts do is inflate the subscriber #s, they probably add next to nothing to the revenue. Also, even though I cancelled Sirius 2-3years ago, I can still log in to my account. So does that mean they still consider me a subscriber, just an inactive one?

    1. I Riley was responsible for makin the company, he jouls get a raise
    2. Howard can't make up his mind if he's a partner or just a worker
    3. If Howard made Sirius, shouldn't o&a get credit for making xm? They had more listeners after all.
    4. Thank god we only have to hear this shit twice a week ....

    Howard is lucky that sirius paid him
    What they did. Rey paid him according to he contract, even though Howard ame nowhere near delivering what he signed on to deliver.

    H100: live 2 days a week, sometimes 3, for a mere 4 hours when thu aren't takin one of their 12 weeks of vacation. They're constant repeats with little effort put into them. George Lucas puts more effort into hosting a star wars marathon.

    H101: a channel barely populated with content , and when it is, it's all volunteer work worth just about what is spent on production.

    Premium channel: pure and utter pipe dream, never developed.

    Howard is far from meetin his end of he deal.

    Note that Liberty Media took a risk. Sirius seems to make bad deals with everyone. It should have been highly profitable. Instead, they give half the company in exchange for a loan. The loan gets paid back and the lender keeps 40% of the company. Howard sleeps through the last few years of his contract and they sign him to a second insane contract that calls for him to do even less. How is it that others over there aren't cashing in?

    I don't hear much about it. No documents, nada! Maybe Howard's talking out of his ass.
