    I remember MFB calling in a while ago to remind people it was the last day to enter online but Howard said today you can still sign-up on the website. The Grand Prize winner was also supposed to be announced on Jan. 6th but now you can enter until the 23rd. Must be there isn't much interest, not surprising considering the musical guests they've announced so far. The same bunch of 80's has-beens Howard has for guests all the time. Here's the original ad for the Grand Prize:

    Enter The Stern Show Grand Prize Sweepstakes

    Grand Prize winner will be announced January 6th

    Here's the new ad for the Grand Prize (with the extended Jan. 23rd date):


    Enter until Jan. 23 at Noon ET

    This is it. It’s the king of all prizes - and one lucky subscriber is going to win it.

    You and a guest could have a night you'll never forget. Roundtrip airfare, two nights in a hotel and two tickets to the bash will be provided. You’ll walk the red carpet along with the hottest stars. You’ll sit next to a Wack Packer and enjoy incredible musical performances. You’ll even get your picture taken with Gary, and receive a VIP gift bag. Kind of rocks to be a subscriber, doesn’t it ?

    Interest should spike now that they've announced Bon Jovi and Fogerty will be there - is Kimmel the only announced guest who's under 50?

    At least Howard can unload some of the extra NSAL calendars to fill the VIP gift bag.

    A couple of years ago, they made Bobo take off his wig and go out into the street with a sign. Also with Bobo was the HTV camera crew, etc. Not one, and I mean not even one person stopped to even give a single iota of what was going on. They couldn't even garrner a "long glance" of interest. It was embarrassing.

    That was the last time that I remember them sending someone out.

    I remember when crowds would form before they even HIT the street with a bit just because Howard talked about it.

    Odd lack of reaction for someone who claims to have MILLIONS of listeners.

    What I would give for there to be a way to actually know how many are tuning in like the old days.

    2. people with lifetime subscriptions who are in their cars much of the day and listen to all the various programs to kill time and,

    3. new subscribers to Sirius (97.5% who have free 6-month subscriptions that came with their new GM car purchase).
