    less content ... less to complain about = more value for subscribers? Huh?

    I wonder what the actual cost is to operate 101. That is, would they save that much money by shuttering it?

    There's really no reason why they can't air everything on 100. Howard only works 3 days. His show blows, playing it, over and over over and over for 4 days. really isn't necessary.

    I believe the 2nd channel is in Howard's contract though.

    That's interesting. Maybe that's why Howard is having all these meetings. That is, if Howard contractually is bound to a second channel it is possible that Malone & Co. might be pressuring Howard to provide better content for 101. They're trying to hold him to his contract.

    I would rather hear Stern Show Shuffle every day all day than listen to Howard's show and the crappy H101 shows(with the exception of Black on Black, Geektime, and Jackie's Joke Hunt).

    I love the Stern Show Shuffle. It's the only time I laugh listening to H100/101 these days.

    Shuffle is great, but the online player is so retarded that you can't even rewind to a few hours ago. The last 3 times I've logged in at night, there are two buttons pinned almost on top of each other to the left- meaning the player is fucked once again (no rewinding).

    Agreed, there's no hope H101 will ever have any programming worth listening to and they should just shut it down.

    Or maybe they WANT to get rid of it, and he doesn't, purely for ego's sake. Just a thought.

    I wish that they would just start playing old Howard shows (say 1994 on) day by day in order on 101. it would be way better than anything on there now. I loved shuffle at first. now it seems like the same bits repeated over and over.

    It's been seven years, the "work in progress" excuse is ridiculous and would be a major embarrassment to Howard if he cared about anything but his paycheck.

    Like anyone needed an excuse to hate Sabean even more, but that asshat pulled a Gary-like "what do you do for a living?" on a caller (Tuesday, I think?) who called Howard complaining about Shuli's shit show with that dick doctor. Even Howard knows that show is garbage, as he told Sabean to scale it back from 2 hours to 1 hour.

    Sabean said something along the lines of, "we put that show on just to annoy the caller..." and thought it was funny. It's shit like that that alienates whatever THSS fan base is left.

    Fuck Sabean and 101 (except for Riley, Sour Shoes Specials, and Jackie's show - which has grown on me...)
